Tune up: Brakes

NEW BRAKE PARTS Immediately after replacing the brake pads and brake discs, the new components are of course functional, but not yet optimal. Therefore, a short drive-in of about 300 km is necessary, during which short, gentle braking should be carried out repeatedly, so that the surfaces of coverings and discs can adapt well to each other. Too intense and brusque braking immediately after changing the brake components could heat the friction material of the pads and / or discs too much. This could negatively affect the condition of the brake parts and the braking performance.



DSM – brakepower !

Front brake kit at a lucrative price

We have developed a brake system that offers a top braking performance and plenty of reserves even with brisk driving. This is of course even more in tuned vehicles to bear. The brake system also fits with 15-inch rims – the free movement must first be checked by rim type.

NOTE: USE ONLY WITH STEEL FLEX PIPES! (If already installed, these can still be used)

( Stahlflexkit – b-br-0015 / Euro 155.-)  

The kit consists of the following components:

  • 2 brake discs Brembo Standard or (at surcharge) Tarox Sport Japan front – diameter 280 mm (standard: 257 mm)


(Fig.: Tarox Japan Sport S – Size comparison to series / DSM kit)

  • 2 brake calipers with piston diameter 57 mm incl. brake pads Brembo



(Fig.: Comparison brake pads series Barchetta large pliers – DSM-Kit)

  • 2 Brake caliper adapter made by DSM

  • 2 brake calipers rear diameter 38 mm (series: 34 mm) with pads
  • Master Cylinder: D = 23,81mm (Series 22,22mm)

Further information on braking

Even those who are less likely to spur on the Barchetta should pay some attention to this issue – because everyone is happy if the brakes do a good job. In the following we would like to point out different variations:

The simplest: brake fluid with a higher boiling point results in better and more resistant brake pressure (e.g. ATE type 200 – replaces the well-known blue racing brake fluid).

As the standard rubber lines age and should be replaced regularly, it is advisable to improve them with steel flex lines:


b-br-0015 / Euro 149.-

The advantages over the standard brake lines (rubber):

  • No more aging, since no rubber hose that can become hard and cracked,
  • due to its design (steel braiding on the outside – hence the term “steel flex”), the brake line can no longer give way first in cross-section when brake pressure is built up,
  • direct and constant brake pressure and thus clearer dosage.

There are also great differences in the braking performance of standard brakes, so we use and recommend Brembo discs: very good response and dosage, even in wet conditions.

So far we have not received any complaints about brake rubbing etc.

Of course, it is important that the appropriate Brembo pads are also fitted so that compatible components are used.

If you want it to be a bit extra and more powerful (with little extra cost compared to the standard version):

A very good alternative for the brembo Sport S is the

Tarox Sport Japan:

Technical tip: Always give your newly mounted brake parts a certain initial braking time, i.e. no violent braking at the beginning, which can lead to glazing and hardening of the pads (applies of course to all vehicles, not only to the Barchetta)!
