Stopping Power
Our Stage 2 Performance Brake upgrade is packed with features, bringing a real sportscar look and feel in the braking department for fast road use – all at an affordable price.
Why Upgrade?
All the power in the world is next to useless if your stock brakes aren’t up to it. Our Stage 2 Monoblock Performance Brake Upgrade is an ultra-durable braking solution developed exclusively for fast-road VWG cars. We’ve developed these brakes for street use from our decades of motorsport experience, and, as you’d expect, they provide outstanding stopping power again and again. Yet, all at an affordable price.
  • Our lightweight Monoblock one-piece construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than the original calipers.
  • The kit comes in at almost half the weight of the original for significant unsprung mass savings. The caliper, pads and bracket assembly weigh in at 4.4kg (9.7lb) vs 8.6kg (18.9lb) for the factory Golf 7R kit.
  • A bigger, 345mm ‘triple-grove’ disc gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of fade.
  • Smart design features such as our Hub Adaptor system plus built-in pad-wear indicators are all part of RacingLine’s typical attention to detail.
  • Our extensive development programme on piston sizes gives beautiful progressive pedal feel – and that’s because (unlike many) we only develop brakes for VWG cars.
TRACK USE?
This Stage 2 kit has been developed as an effective fast road kit and isn’t intended for track use.
If you’re into track use, we recommend our Stage 3 Forged Monoblock Brake Kit (rather than this Stage 2 kit). With 6-piston lightweight callipers and a choice of 355 or 380mm two-piece discs, our Stage 3 kit is the ultimate brake solution for either track days or full race.
Monoblock
The ‘Monoblock’ construction of our 4-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and light weight, and aid in wheel clearance packaging.
Disc Quality
Discs made from high cast carbon – a mixture of high quality steel combined with carbon; giving a far higher friction coefficient compared to normal steel rotors.
Sport Pads
Composite Ceramic Sport Pads are included with the ideal compound for fast-road use. Unusually for a brake upgrade kit, we’ve included pad wear sensor. Note: these pads are not suitable for track use.
Grooved & Vented
The discs, with integral mounting bells, use our ‘Triple Groove’ design across the face for improved bite and debris clearance.
VWG Specific
Engineered exclusively for VWG cars, with piston sizes matched to master cylinders and servos for perfect responses.  A full kit of supporting bells, brackets and lines included.
Full Install Kit
Everything you need for installation: discs, callipers, mounting brackets, fast road pads, braided steel lines. Plus the option of Hub Adaptors for extra wheel clearance. Bolt on & drive!
Hub Adaptors For Perfect Fitment
Clearance over big brake kits is always a challenge, especially when used under factory wheels.
RacingLine’s brake kit features our unique design that allows these 5mm Hub Adaptors to be solidly, mechanically mounted onto the front face of the disc to give you that extra clearance. No more adding loose spacers onto your car (and approved in markets where spacers are illegal).
Changing your rims? Swapping from summer to winter wheels? Or track to road wheels? No problem, the Hub Adaptors are installed and removed in minutes
We recommend this 5mm Hub Adaptor for anyone using this brake kit under factory wheels.

Loose Weight
Saving unsprung weight is really important on a performance car. All those heavy masses on the ‘road-side’ of your springs – the wheels, tyres, suspension arms and of course brakes – make a massive difference to the car’s responses as it turns and handles bumps in the road, differences you can really feel as a driver.
So we’ve spend a lot of our development and design time making sure that our Performance Brake Kit cuts as much weight out as possible. Our Monoblock Aluminium construction is the key to this saving – a single piece caliper is stronger, stiffer and can therefore be lighter than equivalent 2-piece calipers.
Confirmed Applications:
Minimum 18″ wheel diameter required​. Our Hub Adaptors recommended for use with factory wheels.
