Choose your stopping power – 86/BRZ

The Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ were hailed as the saviours of the Japanese sports cars when they first went on sale in 2012. Designed from a clean slate, the sporty coupes had an extremely low centre of gravity, with a naturally aspirated flat-four engine up front. Combined with rear wheel drive and a lightweight, stiff chassis, it instantly became a favourite for those seeking an everyday, useable sports car that doesn’t break the bank. The cars became an instant hit, and a Toyota 86 Racing series sprung up worldwide to reflect how popular these coupes are.


DBA offers various disc upgrades for the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ, including everything from standard vented disc replacements to top-tier two-piece items.


If it’s serious braking performance you want, we recommend our two-piece DBA Club Spec Road & Race 5000 Series T3 slotted front rotors.

Race 5000 Series T3 Slotted Front Rotors


The 5000 Series DBA Brake Rotors incorporate Alumalite hats made from 6061-T6 Aeronautical grade aluminium. The Alumalite hat reduces unsprung weight for improved suspension and handling performance as well as allowing uniform expansion of the disc rotor during high performance use.

DBA’s 5000 T3 slot design ‘sports’ the same benefits as the 4000 Series except for one major structural advancement, two-piece design.

T3 Slot 48 precision CNC machined slots
Advantage: Tri-Symmetrical curve slots dampens the vibration harmonics or noise.
Benefit: A quieter, responsive and smoother brake pedal feel.

Kangaroo Paw – 144 diamond and tear drop pillar ventilation system
Advantage: Increased surface area resulting in greater heat dissipation.
Benefit: Minimises brake fade and increases braking effectiveness.

XG150 High Carbon Alloyed Iron
Advantage: An increase in thermal capacity property allows the rotor to handle constant extremes of heat over extended periods of time.
Benefit: Minimises warping and cracking and prolongs the service life of the rotor.

Thermographic Temperature Monitoring
Advantage: Heat paint markings change colour at specific temperature thresholds.
Benefit: Allows the driver to monitor rotor fatigue and decide on rotor replacement and to assist resellers with warranty claims.

Paint protection on non-friction areas
Advantage: Reduces corrosion, enhances appearance.
