Time to take a brake..disc

Swallows Jaguar are proud to be supporters of our new partner Tarox brakes, with a great range to suit all driving requirements and direct replacements from the OEM parts its a great time to upgrade

All TAROX discs and calipers are designed and manufactured in their factory in Northern Italy. This in-house approach ensures the very maximum in performance and quality. Every TAROX rotor is constructed using the highest quality casts and steel billets before being heat treated and balanced by hand for the smoothest possible surface. For a brake manufacturer with innovation in its DNA, look no further than TAROX!

Take a look below at the details of the new range,

Performance Brake Discs

Every one of Tarox discs is manufactured from the highest quality casts or steel billets before being heat treated and balanced by hand for the smoothest possible surface.

F2000 Disc

The F2000 transcended from a racing specific disc into the road range. With the big power increases of modern day sport saloons and hot hatchbacks, combined with the increasing popularity of track days, there was a demand for a disc which could cope with high operating temperatures and gruelling conditions.

The F2000, first developed for use in touring cars over 18 years ago and often found in the TAROX range of big brake kits, has forged a reputation as the toughest performance aftermarket brake disc available. We have even observed a number of high end vehicle manufacturers using F2000 ‘style’ discs on their range topping models.

Spiral grooves are the perfect compromise of cooling and integrity: the F2000 will feature between 7 and 9. As with all TAROX discs, the F2000 is manufactured using only the highest quality high carbon TUV approved castings and features the unique TAROX heat treatment for strength and durability, final hand balancing for the smoothest finish ensuring perfect contact and a quick bedding-in process and a final, anti-rust treatment.

Sport Japan Discs

As the name implies the Sport Japan was originally designed for the Japanese market, where performance and tough looks are essential.

Sport Japan discs are one of the only aftermarket performance discs to still feature fully drilled holes, which is one of the most effective ways of venting hot gases from the brake surface. Although effective, this is an aggressive method of dissipating heat. To ensure ultimate performance and durability all Sport Japan discs feature countersunk holes strategically placed in order not to affect the discs structural integrity. This method is much more effective than a dimple, as the gas actually leaves the discs surface into the ventilation channels in the disc centre and away from the disc surface, ensuring the disc runs cooler for longer.

An additional 6 grooves on the braking surface act like a wiper, keeping the brake pad from glazing and removing excess dust while providing additional cooling. All Sport Japan discs are made from the highest quality high carbon TUV approved castings, and feature our unique finishing processes of heat treatment for strength and durability, perfect final balancing to within 0.01mm for a perfect contact patch and quick bedding-in and a final, anti-rust treatment.

Zero Point Disc

Although plain in appearance, the ZERO discs are far from an original disc. TAROX Zero discs are made from special high grade casts submitted to several levels of heat treatment. An outstanding resistance to high temperatures prevents warping and cracks. The final hand finishing leaves them incredibly smooth allowing them to mate to pads efficiently, increasing life of the disc and pad.

The ZERO has proved highly successful in both circuit racing – where regulations do not allow modified brake systems – as well as group N competition.
Regular use in international Endurance racing saw the Zero last up to twice as long as a regular plain disc.

 

Performance Brake Pads

No matter what your requirements from a brake pad TAROX will have something to suit your needs, whether it is for hard track day use or you just require a greater quality pad for your daily driver. TAROX pads are made from the highest quality materials developed to meet and exceed European regulations.

Three different compounds are available offering varying levels of performance and comfort. It is generally considered the higher performance the pad the less comfortable it will be for day to day driving conditions.
If you would like any more information regarding TAROX brake pads please use the form in the contact area.

Strada Brake Pad

The Strada pads are ideal for fast road use and every day driving. They work great from cold and provide immediate response without pre-heating whilst also offering a higher coefficient of friction for improved braking power, improved resistance to high temperatures and a longer service life than O.E materials. They provide an excellent pedal feel and allow full control over braking for the driver.

Capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 600°C, this pad has an optimum temperature range of 150°C to 350°C.

Corsa Brake pad

The Corsa pad is a great all – round pad, and although primarily intended for track day use, the pads can also be used to great effect for fast road use on more powerful cars. Corsa pads are still effective from cold and therefore give maximum performance at all temperatures. The high coefficient of friction gives amazing levels of pedal feel and massive amounts of bite, yet they are not hard on discs like some track type pads.

Capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 650°C, this pad has an optimum temperature range of 200°C to 600°C.

Compitizione Brake Pad

Developed on the race track the Competizione compound is for pure racing, delivering performance without compromise. Featuring a high coefficient of friction, this pad has a superior release characteristic compared to other race materials making it easier to modulate. It delivers a very hard pedal feel due to a low compressibility level and outstanding thermal stability which ensures constant performance lap after lap.

Capable of withstanding temperatures of over 900°C, this pad has an optimum temperature range of 400°C to 800°C.

 

Performance Braided Brake Line

Our braided brake hoses are manufactured by hand and like all products in the TAROX range they’re produced from the finest quality European materials.

Constructed from the highest quality PTFE flexible hose and stainless steel over braid both protected by a weather resistant PVC outer coating. All TAROX braided lines feature fully swaged stainless steel fittings and anti-whip collars to provide years of reliable performance. Each kit is designed to be a direct replacement for the OE parts and tailored specifically for each application. They include any necessary fittings required for fitting and come with a lifetime warranty for the original purchaser.

Following construction, every single TAROX braided hose is individually pressure tested to ensure high performance and longevity.

Upgrading to braided brake hoses will provide you with a firmer pedal by reducing the amount of flex compared to a standard rubber hose. This results in a more immediate pedal response which is ideal for spirited driving and track use. Our hoses are compatible with both DOT4 and DOT5.1 specification fluids and our application list spans over 750 vehicles.
