HARTLEPOOL, U.K. — High performance Mintex brake discs forged by thousands of miles of testing on the racing circuit are now available to drivers and technicians for road-going MINI cars.
TMD Friction’s legendary Mintex braking brand has released a brake product developed in the MINI Challenge JCW series, where championship organizers turned to Mintex for the specification braking part across the whole competitive field.
The new brake disc, part number MDC2951C (335mm diameter), offers high-end braking performance for Mini Cooper S JCW and Challenge models (F55 and F56), with corresponding Mintex brake pads MDB30804 or M1144 Mintex Racing performance versions.
Richard Barton, category manager for Mintex Racing at TMD Friction, said: “Mintex has an exceptional reputation when it comes to performance braking friction products. These are developed through uncompromising research and testing processes in some of the UK’s most demanding racing settings.
“Mintex Racing performance-engineered brake discs are specifically designed and developed to excel in racing settings, including in the visceral MINI Challenge, and the road-going range maintains the high-end braking quality drivers would expect from brakes developed in conjunction with motorsport.”
The latest brake discs from Mintex, feature a dimpled surface to keep the disc temperature down in demanding braking settings and improve braking performance by expelling gasses, dirt and debris.
The dimpled and grooved brake discs are available alongside a range of Mintex brake pads, which were specially selected to fit the limited-edition John Cooper Works MINI production car.
High-performance brake discs also available from Mintex for MINI cars are MDC2235 (294mm) and MDC2725 (316mm) for R56 Cooper S and JCW models. The specially engineered MINI braking products are a unique offering within the Mintex range as the one of few performance discs available from the brand featuring the dimpled and grooved design.
All new Mintex brake products are designed to meet the exacting demands of complex modern braking systems. Mintex braking products are engineered to provide friction stability, comfort and consistently high performance over a wide temperature range and stopping distances.
Mintex Brakebook allows users to create catalogues tailored to their individual requirements, whether for the entire product range, a selection of products or even for special models.
The expert search function also allows searching by product criteria such as width, height, thickness, drum diameter and many other criteria, making the identification of brake parts as easy as possible.
