Due to popular demand, all of our 2-piece, lightweight rotors will now come with black anodized rotor hats featuring Type 3, hard anodizing, the highest quality and hardest anodizing available for aluminum. This will make the rotor hats more resistant to fade and wear and will hide brake dust better. Due to popular, demand all lightweight rotor rings will also feature zinc plating. This high quality coating will slow the effects of corrosion and keep your rotor rings looking good through the winters.
IN STOCK AND READY TO SHIP!
FINALLY a low cost rear BBK (Big Brake Kit) for your B5 A4/S4. NOTE: A4 requires S4 rear calipers and caliper hangers to do this conversion. Use the drop down box on the ordering page to add these.
Stock vs. JHM
-Rotor OD: Stock B5 S4 = 256mm(10.07"), Stock B5 A4 = 245mm(9.64"), JHM = 300mm(11.8") - Almost 2 full inches LARGER for B5 S4 and over 2 inches for B5 A4 for better braking performance.
-Rotor Weight: Stock = 12lbs(each), JHM = 9lbs(each) - 25% LIGHTER, 3lbs less each
-Rotor Cooling Air-gap: Stock = 8.5mm(.334"), JHM = 13mm(.511") - LARGER for better cooling
-Rotor Cooling Center Fin Design: Stock = Straight Fin, JHM = Airfoil - MORE EFFICIENT for better cooling
-Rotor Thickness: Stock = 22mm(.866"), JHM = 22mm(.866") - SAME
-Bolt pattern: - SAME (fits like an OEM rotor would)
INSTALL NOTES: Due to the relocation of the rear caliper making it more outboard you are required to unsnap and release the plastic sleeve for the parking brake cable in the lower rear control arm. This is necessary to allow the cable to be pulled rearward some so it can reach the caliper without kinking or excessive stretching. (NOTE: This sleeve is usually brittle and prone to breaking and sometimes hard to release, so do not be worried if it breaks when performing this mod. As long as you can get it so the cable can be pulled rearward some you did the job correctly)

Outer ring specs:
We worked closely with a race brake manufacturer that supplies many NASCAR racers and a couple major brake kit companies. Due to their expertise we chose to have them build us the outer rings to our specs to fit the B5-S4. 12 attachment points for durability and strength.
Center hat specs:
We CNC machine the Aluminum center hats in house based on their recommended materials and thicknesses for durability. 12 attachment points for durability and strength. We also engrave JHM in them in 3 locations equal from each other, it looks clean and doesn't jump out or look tacky.
NOTE: With the installs we have done we have found that our slot design is whisper quiet.

- Great so far!
- My rear brakes needed replacing so I decided to upgrade to this kit. Install was fairly straightforward with the exception of the e brake cable. Helpful hint, use a needle nose plier and pick to get the plastic loose. 034 has a diy on their website. I’ll update the review once I drive another week. (Posted on 10/24/2018)
