Performance Replacement Brakes for Giulia Models;
Group 2 Motorsports and GiroDisc have some VERY exciting news to share with the Giulia community! We are ready to install the first G2 / GiroDisc performance brake setup on a new Giulia road or street-track car!
First, some history for context...
As many here on the forum are aware, Group 2 Motorsports and GiroDisc co-developed some amazing performance brake solutions for various Alfa Romeo models over the years. Product offerings include well-engineered, true bolt-on, tested, high performance front and rear caliper, pad and floating hat rotor solutions for Spider, GTV and other 105 / 115 models, continuing on through complete front and rear caliper, pad and floating hat solutions for 116 Alfetta / GTV6 and Milano / 75 models - and most recently - floating hat, rotor and pad solutions to raise the bar on the 4C model's stopping power as well.
GiroDisc is a first-rate brake design, engineering, manufacturing and distribution company with a-LOT of brake development experience - backed up by decades of racing data feedback from a dedicated community utilizing their products. The quality, performance and cost value of our GiroDisc solutions are well-documented within the Porsche, Ferrari, Nissan GTR, Mitsubishi Evo, Corvette, Lotus and other performance vehicle communities as well. The giant full race AP / GiroDisc floating hat / rotor solution that I run on my own 3.7 litre 24v Milano race car, as well as the lightweight Wilwood / GiroDisc street-track setups running on dozens and dozens of Milanos and GTV6s out there, is first-rate and well-known!
All caliper brackets and floating hats are hard-anodized CNC pieces with branded "AR" part numbers. Floating hardware and fasteners have above industry-standard tensile ratings. Rotors are of a high-quality iron and the final product is zinc-dipped which maintains a nice, rust-free finished rotor edge. Pad selections draw from readily-available performance ranges and OEM part numbers such as Ferrodo, Pagid, Wilwood, Hawk, Brembo, Akebono, as well as GiroDisc's own Magic Pad product offerings.
These brake solutions are designed to reduce un-sprung weight (but also to reduce overall weight), to improve ventilation and cooling capacity, to reduce the potential for fade under performance driving conditions and to decrease stopping distances - all while retaining original dimensions and integrating seamlessly with the vehicle's OEM system! In many cases, solutions require fitment under small OEM wheel sizes for originality or to meet racing regulations and this is accomplished successfully on many models such as the older Alfas where a larger rotor and even a 4-piston pot caliper all still fit under a 15" wheel!
On newer models, the modern wheels are huge anyway and it doesn't matter as much. For vehicles with larger wheels, the performance and cost advantages can increase exponentially.
