Racecomp Engineering Tarmac II coilovers are in development for the
Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S. In conjunction with KW Suspension, RCE is
continuing the tradition of building track ready parts a step above
the competition. Featuring linear race springs, incorporating a 2 way
design with separate compression and rebound adjustments, motorsports
level spring rates, composite locking perches, and the winning
tradition of the same suspension system on the 2008 SCCA STU autocross
National Championship Impreza, this suspension system will be the
ticket for those who looking to outperform the competition.
Summary of features and benefits:
-Approximately 2-3 lbs. unsprung weight reduction from both front corners of the car
-Array of inexpensive brake pad options. These pads are far larger/thicker than stock,
and will last a very long time on the FT86.
-Mitigation of pad knockback due to 4lb.anti-knockback springs in the calipers
-Caliper finish that is highly resistant to wear and deterioration under high heat track conditions
Stainless steel caliper hardware for a long caliper service life under frequent pad change conditions
-High temperature, low drag seals that will hold up to track temps
better than OEM components= less rebuilding and longer service life
-Simple pad change with one bolt and no spring clips (no tapping out the pins as you would on an STI Brembo)
-Extremely compact package for superior wheel fitment
-Stainless steel pistons that keep heat out of your brake fluid to resist fluid fade during extended track sessions
-High airflow, heavy duty AP Racing J Hook brake discs that are the same weight as the OEM units
despite their much larger size, available at an extremely competitive replacement price ($250 each).
-AP Racing J Hook slot design that gives more pad bite/feel, and distributes heat evenly throughout the disc
-Disc metallurgy specifically designed to handle the temps typically seen on track offers a long service life
-Highest quality, Spiegler stainless steel brake line with clear sheath that reduces
compliance over OEM rubber design.
