Courtenay Sport Brakes

Courtenay Sport have joined forces with leading brake manufacturers, to design a range of uprated brakes that will provide optimum performance without warping. They are effective from cold, don't squeal at low speeds and stay fade free at very high temperatures, ideal for all fast road and track day applications.

How do 'normal' brake discs work?
As the brakes work the wearing of the pads and discs create a dust between them, thereby reducing 'feel' and responsiveness to light pressure. Also, when the pads get very hot under hard braking they release gas from the friction surface which 'lifts' the pad off the surface of the disc. To overcome the resultant fade you push harder, increasing the heat, increasing the gas... and so on.

Courtenay Sport Performance Brakes

Courtenay Sport use brake components from well known and respected manufacturers, who not only supply components for aftermarket use, but also supply to manufacturers for OE fitment and are used for motorsport applications. Our uprated disc and pad combinations are ideal for fast road and light track day use and will dramatically improve your cars stopping ability giving the driver greater feel and confidence. Furthermore the brakes that we offer here are tested on our own cars, to ensure that we only offer a set up that we are happy to choose ourselves.
Courtenay Sport's Uprated 16 grooved brake discs give instant response under the most demanding driving conditions. They provide superior brake fade characteristics over a wide temperature range and exceptional performance from cold up to 800 o C.

We source high quality discs, for all our applications, and have them machined specifically to suit the required application. Our choice of discs come from a wide range of suppliers to ensure best performance, especially when used with our selected choice of uprated fast road brake pad.

Do they work?
Emphatically, yes! The difference always surprises people; they feel like bigger brakes and perform like bigger brakes.

EBC Turbo Groove Discs

EBC Turbo Groove Disc EBC's wide groove discs are designed to pull cool air under the pad surface and between the disc to help both pad and disc cooling. EBC's "Blind Drilled" dimples help break down surface gasses but do not promote cracking, which has been known to occur, especially on fast road and track day use with conventional "Through Drilled" discs.

As well as aiding cooling, the grooves in the disc surface also allow dirt, dust, gasses, debris and grit to escape from between the disc and pad surface, especially under heavy braking. The grooves and dimples also keep the pad surface de-glazed throughout its useful life.

EBC sport discs are also gold anodised to help prevent from corrosion in areas which are not swept by the pad to help them stay looking better for longer. Optimum brake performance is reached once the zinc coating is removed from the pad contact area, which when used with EBC ceramic pads and the special brake in coating on their surface  will often occur in as little as 50 miles.
Groove direction to be fitted in accordance with the information supplied on the disc packaging.
As with our own 16G discs it is normal to expect a little additional brake noise from these discs during normal use.

Courtenay Sport 16 Groove and 8 Groove Discs

Courtenay Sport offer a range of 16 Groove discs for the front and 8 Groove discs for the rear for most of the popular models. The grooves not only sweep the pad to keep it clean, but they also allow extra cooling air to be drawn between the disc and the pad surface to aid cooling whilst allowing any gasses and dust to be thrown clear of the disc and pad surface, helping improve stopping ability. Ideal for fast road and light track use. Available for most popular applications.

The discs can be fitted with the groove either facing forwards for fast road use, or rearwards for a more aggressive pad cut.

Fog Light Delete Brake Duct Kit - Astra/Zafira VXR

Our foglight delete brake duct kit, as used on the Astra Sprint Editions, is designed to get additional cold air directly to the disc and caliper assembly. One the fog lights are removed, which gives the added advantage of weight saving a consideration for track use, the kit is installed and include semi rigid convoluted ducting with plastic finishers and 3 trumpets. 2 are bonded into the OE foglight surrounds (which can be seen painted in black flexible anti stone chip paint in our image) and one is bonded into the plastic bottom pulley cover which makes for easy removal for getting access into the cambelt area and oil filter. The ducting is then fitted as required between the fog light surrounds and the brakes. They will direct additional air flow towards the brake disc and caliper to aid brake cooling.

These are especially suited to fast road and light track day use.

Racing & DOT 5.1 Brake Fluid

Delphi Lockheed Racing Brake Fluid has been formulated for racing applications where braking systems operate at high temperatures. It guards against vapour lock and maintains its viscosity and lubricity at extreme temperatures. This fluid conforms to and exceeds the current specification for DOT4 and has a typical dry boiling point of 310 o C (590 o F), which is higher than DOT5.1 fluids which typically have a dry boiling point of 260 o C.

£12.60 per 500ml. Buy Now Click Here!

DOT 5.1 Brake Fluid, ideal for fast road use as it has a typical dry boiling point of in excess of 260 o C,  which is higher than DOT4 fluids which are usually supplied from the factory.

Brake Fluid - Some Facts

Due to the fact that a brake system is not perfectly sealed moisture can be absorbed by the fluid. This in effect reduces the boiling point of the fluid and can reduce the efficiency of the brake system. Another factor of reduced braking efficiency is fluid that has got too hot and boiled, turning it into gas which leads to a 'spongy' feeling.

Brake fluids are classified to defined specifications: DOT3, DOT4, DOT5, DOT 5.1 These specifications have two reference tests:
Dry Boiling Point, the boiling point of fresh fluid
Wet Boiling Point, the boiling point once the fluid has absorbed water, representing fluid that has been in use in a vehicle.

There are two main types of brake fluid:

DOT3, DOT4, DOT 5.1 which are glycol based (Poly Alkylene Glycol - PAG) & DOT 5 which is synthetic based.
The two types of fluid are not compatible and must not be mixed in a braking system.
Minimum Dry and Wet Boiling point specifications:
Minimum Boiling Point oC DOT 3 (PAG) DOT 4 (PAG) DOT 5 (silicone) DOT 5.1 (PAG) Racing Brake Fluids
Dry 205 oC 230 oC 260 oC 260 oC 300 oC
Wet 140 oC 155 oC 185 oC 185 oC 195 oC
