From what I understand, the main difference between the Brembo GTR and GT kits is that the GTR doesn't need to be rebuilt as often, allows more rotor sizes and is lighter.

If you're using your car for hardcore tracking, you might want to take a look at the AP Racing kit (the OEM BMW GT4 kit), or something from the likes of Endless or Performance Friction.

Otherwise, checkout Alcon, Stoptech, AP Racing, or the GT kit from Brembo. They'll probably give you similar performance for regular track use, although they may require a rebuild sooner than the GTR (although the GTR kit is pretty much double the price of these 'regular' BBK).

What are you using the car for? Dual purpose? Track car? Racing?

Yup. The GT-R is basicly a club racing kit that can be used on street cars. It offers the performance of club racing kits but maintains the durability of the street kits in terms of NVH, resistence to the weather, and service requirements. GT-R calipers are made from billet aluminum. GT has dust boot with a single inner piston seal, GT-R does not have dust boot but has dual inner piston seals to prevent dust and other elements from contaminating the caliper. GT-R also has gun grilled stainless steel piston inserts which allows for better cooling.

I have the GTR kit

and what I notice compared to the GT kit is that it gives you a more stable braking feel but not great stopping power because the Brembo pads are shit. now I have the endless pads and oh man my BBk GTR's are just sick! the stopping power is like a porsche and very consistant

I have a couple of customers running Stop tech big brake kits on their cars including this one a E92 M3 fully dedicated track car we built last year. This car is equipped with stop tech's trophy series big brakes system. He's told me that out on the track even during endurance events these brakes perform phenomenal, he's mentioned that out of all his race cars this one with the trophys is the best braking.





Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the system.

The Brembo GTR kits are great, but they're definitely not easy on the wallet. As Kevin@Active has already said, if you're looking for something comparable, you may also want to check out the StopTech Trophy series BBK systems!
