    Re: R1 Concepts| R1 FORGED SERIES BIG BRAKE KIT!

    Who makes the calipers? For cars that use a drum brake inside the rear disk for the parking brake (like my Subaru), do the rear kits maintain that setup, or how does the parking brake work?

    What makes the R1 Forged brake kit better than a kit from more established BBK manufacturers like Baer or Stoptech?

    We engineer and design the calipers ourselves and have our own manufacture for our BBK. Yes, you would still retain your parking brake. We offer a iron disc ring at an additional cost that attaches to the hub of the BBK rotor hat that functions the same as your stock parking braking. Comparing our BBK to other manufactures such as Baer or Stoptech, functionality it's the same for most BBK calipesr out there on the market. We compare our R1 BBK in line with Stoptech. Not only that, all of our kits are made to order. Depending on what you need it for, race or everyday driving, you can customize it any way you want. From aluminum or stainless pistons, knockback springs, fixed to floating rotors, different brake pad formulas to even custom colors of paint or anodized.

    Thanks for the response. Good to have another player in the market. I'll definitely be looking at your options when I get my Subie back on the road this year.
