Monobloc Kit | Front | Holden VE - VFII
With new manufacturing techniques allowing a consolidated caliper design the Harrop Monobloc kit provides improved and progressive braking.
Due to its single piece construction the caliper is stiffer, requiring less pedal effort and has an integrated an internal bridge pipe removing the need for an external bridge pipe which is susceptible to damage.
Big brake pads front and rear have been included, providing a longer pad life combined with 3 point pin pad location making for easy installation and replacement.
2 x 355x32mm 2-peice 12-slots Front disc rotors
2 x Front Caliper mounts
1 x Set of bolts, washers and mounting hardware.
2 x 4 Piston “Monobloc” front Caliper (red)
2 x Set of front brake pads
Why do I need to Upgrade?
If you have fitted a wheel/tyre package that has an effective diameter greater than standard, the brake effectiveness is reduced, the force required on the rotor to slow the car increases by approximately 8% per 50 mm increase in effective tyre diameter. This means the driver needs to push harder on the pedal to stop, and results in increased rotor and pad wear.
ABS, ESC/DSC or EBD can't help you under brake fade conditions, the OEM brake systems are designed exclusively for road use and tested to comply with ADR 31/01*
If you use your car for any track work, you'll be driving at much higher speeds with much less recovery time and braking many more times than the ADR test. The OEM brake system just isn't required or designed to cope with this.
If your vehicle has increased power and torque due to other modifications such as a Harrop supercharger, camshaft, intake and or exhaust upgrades; The faster you can accelerate, the less time you will have to decelerate.

- *ADR 31/01 Prescribes a fade and recovery test, hot performance where the car is braked from a maximum of 120 to 60 km/h 15 times with 45 seconds between each brake application. The vehicle must then pass an ordinary performance test and achieve 75% of the initial cold test result.
