HT-Spec Stage 4 & 5 brake kits are ALL NEW with RB Performance BBKs

RB Performance (used to be called Racingbrake for you old timers) has just given us all the specs on their new long-awaited BBKs! We are so amped about these brakes we are superseding our existing Stage 4 HT-Spec kit to these new RB packages. First some eye candy:

The top-of the line kit is the 4-pot kit with 2-piece RB rotors. The calipers and rotor hats are forged aluminum with all stainless hardware. Rotor temperature control is beyond reproach, featuring convergent vane design, patented open-slots, and patented center-mount rotor location. 2-piece rotors offer a huge weight savings. The rotor size is 324x258mm (12.75 inches).

The basic kit the line kit is the 4-pot kit with 1-piece RB rotors. The calipers and rotor hats are forged aluminum with all stainless hardware. Rotor temperature control is achieved with convergent vane design and patented center-mount rotor location. The only thing you lose over the 2-piece kit is some weight savings.

    RB Performance calipers:

  • Caliper Body: Light weight at only 4.5lbs, these new RB4000 calipers are re-designed and built for the toughest brake jobs with extended service life before any rebuild is required.
  • Low Profile: Together with RB Center-Mount design two-piece rotors, you hardly even need to require a spacer to install the kit. It fits under 16’ wheel for 300mm rotors.
  • Piston Material: Made of stainless steel instead of aluminum commonly used by other caliper mfgrs which can substantially reduce the heat transfer (approx 1/10 of aluminum) from the pad to brake fluid. Pistons are vented to further reduce the heat contact area and improve air circulation thereby reducing more heat transfer. Being that stainless steel has a comparable melting point (2700°F) to brake pads’ steel backing plates, the pistons will never melt to the pad backing plates. Aluminum pistons (1220°F) can melt to brake pad backing plates under extreme high speed braking.
  • Dust Seal: Our dust seal is of built-in type (instead of external boot type) uniquely designed to shield the dust and foreign material from contamination and will not rip – as commonly seen on boot type dust seals.
  • Hardware: Brake pad pins and banjo connections were re-designed for easier brake line connection and brake pad replacement.
  • Surface Coating: Powder coating with most durable finish for lasting appeal.
  • Hardware: Most hardware is made of stainless steel for durable performance and appearance.
  • Never Get Lost Bleeder Cap: Newly designed with a retaining loop so you will never have to find it again and/replace the lost ones. (made of durable EPDM)
  • Use standard FMSI brake pads (D647): A very common P/N (same as WRX 4-pot fix pistons calipers, plenty of choice for suppliers and compounds.
  • Made in USA: Calipers are designed, fully assembled and hydro-tested in our Fullerton, CA facility, with full after sales support/service.

Stainless steel pistons are a major feature, as they significantly reduce heat transfer from pads to brake fluid as opposed to aluminum used by other companies.

You’d possibly read all about the awesomeness of Racingbrake rotors on Acurazine, TSXClub, or even on Heeltoeauto.com. Honestly I would say the best bet to read up on the rotors will be to read up in the numerous articles we’ve written about them here:
Racingbrake Rotors Break The Mold: The Best Rotors EVAR!!! So awesome, they are HT-SPEC!>/a>

The brake pads included in the kit are ET300, but a number of upgraded compounds are available in upgrade. We ET500 will offer the same low/no noise and dust of the ET300 but will work better with more aggressive driving. For the maximum in street performance we suggest the ET800 pads, which again are quiet, clean and livable but withstand higher temperatures.

Lastly, brake lines are included to provide the best possible pedal pressure and modulation ability.

    Hey Marcus, any idea if these would clear the stock 05 17″ TSX wheels?

  3. Vaikis_ says:

    Even can you meassure distance between stock caliper center and one spoke of the TSX wheel. (inner side).

  4. MrHeeltoe says:

    Unfortunately I cannot at this time…I don’t have stock calipers on my TSX, or a stock wheel. However we are shooting for these fitting behind stock wheels if that is what you are aiming at. Not sure how close we will be. The RB calipers are fairly narrow so we feel pretty confident about it although it would likely require the Stage 5 kit be used. Fingers crossed!

  5. Even says:

    Unfortunately my vehicle is in the shop so I can’t make the measurements either. If someone can figure out if these would fit this would be a amazing setup since you won’t have to purchase new wheels to fit a decent BBK.

  6. Justin says:

    Any word on when a similar package will be offered up for the SH-AWD TL’s?

  7. Harpreet says:

    will this bbk fit the 03-07 accord 6spd?

  8. MrHeeltoe says:

    Not at this time…we are working on the ATLP Quad Exhaust for your car at the moment. Brakes will be not too much later on!

  9. PK says:

    Any word on these fitting behind stock wheels? YA4?

  10. MrHeeltoe says:

    We will know more on this in about 2 weeks.

  11. Even says:

    Do we have any news if these will clear the stock 05 tsx wheels?

  12. MrHeeltoe says:

    Yes they do with a small spacer :)
