Tarox Uprated Disc and Pad range for VW Golf GTi Mk 5
VW’s superb Mk5 Golf GTI was a true return to hot hatch form for the Wolfsburg manufacturer – particularly with its impressive DSG transmission option. As a superb performer, naturally, many will have been bought to drive quickly. So, if you’re an enthusiast that likes to indulge in such activity – or even if you just want to increase your margin of active safety, Italian brake manufacturer Tarox has the perfect solution in the shape of their uprated front 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. Tarox’s ‘Strada’ pads offers the perfect compromise for cars that are driven daily with excellent cold performance, instant bite and great wear rates. For those on track, the ‘Corsa’ pad option gives you all the bite and fade resistance you could need. This set-up has been well proven in the Production GTI championship, where many leading cars are winning on these discs and pads.
Prices start from just £294.00 for a front pair of any of the disc designs. Pads start from £112.80 for the Strada ‘street’ pads. All prices include VAT. Nothing increases driver confidence like a set of decent brakes, so if you want to increase safety and enhance the value and enjoyment of your GTI, then these are the perfect upgrade.
