Tarox Uprated Disc and Pad kit for the VW Golf Mk4– All Models
The fourth generation of VW’s capable Golf is a superb car. Benefitting from a sublime chassis, even the most basic of specs encourages ‘press-on’ driving. If you’re the kind of owner that likes to indulge in such activity – or even if you just want to increase your margin of safety, Italian brake manufacturer Tarox has the perfect solution in their uprated disc and pad sets for all models. These kits offer a direct replacement to the OEM parts – but with significantly greater performance and much less tendency to fade.
Each disc undergoes a structural stress-relieving heat treatment at the end of each machining cycle which increases durability and massively reduces the risk of warping under repeated heavy braking.
All discs are CNC machine-faced for the perfect braking surface, down to a tolerance of 0.015mm, not only resulting in the perfect performance, but also the perfect finish, to accentuate the overall look of the car.
Four styles are available. The OEM-esque ‘Zero’ with its factory good looks, the diagonally vented ‘G88’, the JDM inspired ‘Sport Japan’ and the classic, spirally grooved ‘F2000’.
The perfect discs need the perfect pads, and here Tarox have ticked all of the boxes, too. Corsa or Track pads range from mild to wild, allowing enthusiasts the ability to tailor their cars’ braking performance to suit their driving style and usage. Corsa offers the perfect compromise for cars that live dual lives on road and circuit, whilst ‘Track’ delivers race-winning performance in circuit environments where nothing else matters but ultimate performance.
Nothing increases driver confidence like a set of decent brakes, so if you want to increase safety – or decrease lap times – and don’t want the expense of a full big brake kit, then these are the perfect upgrade.
Tarox also offer hand-finished stainless steel braided brake lines as an entirely sensible upgrade.
