The Girodisc system is a direct replacement for the OE Ford Focus RS Mk3 disc. You do not require any modifications to fit these uprated discs, they will bolt directly to the car and work with OE calipers perfectly and most aftermarket brake kits.
The Girodisc not only increase braking performance also decreases weight as these are lighter than original Ford items. The OE front rotors tip the scales at 23.1lbs where the lightweight Girodiscs are only 18.0lbs. This reduction in rotational and unsprung weight allows for quicker acceleration and suspension response.
The central hat section of our rotor is made from strictly U.S. sourced 6061-T6 aircraft specification aluminum. The disc is made from Girodisc’s proprietary cast iron, poured in the USA and machined from start to finish in house at Girodisc. The rotor utilizes 48 curved directional vanes, developed in racing to act as a centrifugal pump to force cooling air through the disc.
The rotor and hat have a floating mount system, which utilizes 8 or 10 high strength alloy steel drive pins, manufactured by Girodisc in the USA to our own specifications and cadmium plated for a long lasting corrosion resistance. These pins take the load from braking actions while maintaining the axial and radial float between the hat and disc. The pins are secured by grade 12 cap screws with hardened washers. In order to keep the rotors from making noise when cold, the pins are mounted with anti-noise spring washers on the rotor side which allow the rotor to grow with heat expansion but eliminate the rattle and noise associated with floating rotors. This float also allows the rotor to self center between the pads.
Once the Girodisc system is in place, simply replace the cast iron rotor when needed.
