Kit Details :

The Stage 2 kit surpasses other combinations of pads and rotors, giving the best possible performance without impact to streetability.

There are aftermarket parts, and then there are upgraded parts. The aftermarket is littered with products that have fancy coatings, pointless patterns carved into the faces, and usually not much else to offer. HTSpec kits go outside a single brand to combine the best features of rotors, pads, and lines to provide a kit that functions better than the competition. If performance is as important as appearance or brand names, HTSpec kits fit the bill perfectly.

At Heeltoe we believe if you are going to change the rotors, it makes sense to get the best ones available. Most other rotors are essentially the same; many different companies even use the same part number roots to identify them. Yes, RB Performance rotors have patented open-slots for clearing dust from the rotor face, and a black EDP coating to prevent unsightly rust buildup. But these are hardly features in a market full of copycats. RB Performance is one of the few companies to craft rotors from the ground up as enhanced over stock. And we are not talking about fluff like the slots.

    These features make RB rotors stand out:
  • Open-Slots, featuring CNC milled holes located in the slots. These holes efficiently draw brake dust away from the rotor face minimizing excessive transfer-layer buildup. Keeps pad action consistent and predictable.
  • Curved cooling vanes for greater airflow within the rotor. Brake over and over without excessive heat build-up.
  • Engineered alloy with increased carbon over stock grey iron, for wear resistance and to increase the coefficient of friction of the rotor compound.
  • Heat treated to further increase hardness, reducing wear. Change expired pads multiple times without resurfacing.
  • Reinforced and vented hub section for the strongest hat/hub interface in the industry with maximum airflow for cooling. Guaranteed not to warp.

Carbotech pads come in this Stage 2 package, because they are consistently given high praise from demanding street performance drivers. Few brake pad companies offer pads that do what they claim, but the 1521 compound definitely gives improved performance without excessive wear to the rotors, noise or dust. While not recommended for track use, these pads will put up with intensive street use. They even suggest using these pads for tow-vehicle applications, which is perfect for the MDX's wide range of strengths.

Rounding out the package is a set of Fastline Performance Stainless Steel Braided Brake Lines and a couple pints of Motul RBF600 fluid. The standard brake fluid is great for everyday use, and even sporting driving. The elevated temperatures of heavy duty use can causing the standard fluid to boil, causing a dangerous loss of hydraulic pressure. RBF 600 has a considerably higher boiling point, making it appropriate for use in Stage 2 and higher kits, where performance is demanded. These components provide a firm and consistent pedal feel that give you the confidence to use all that the Stage 2 Rotor and Pad selections offer. Change your brake fluid annually to maintain an excellent brake pedal.
