High Performance Brake Kits

HPA is pleased to offer its High Performance Brake Kits for Mk4/Mk5/Mk6 VW and Audi TT/A3 applications. The HPA Brake Kits are designed in conjunction with BAER Brakes and proudly made in the USA.

Key Design Elements:

Wheel Fitment: Unlike most Big Brake Kits, the HPA system is designed to fit behind the OEM 18" GTI, GLI, or Golf R wheels without any spacers. Note: Factory dust shield must be removed to accommodate larger rotor.

Weight Savings: These kits shave 6 pounds of rotational mass per rotor, which results in improved acceleration and deceleration, and a total of 32 pounds of un-sprung weight for improved suspension function.

Calipers: CNC machined from billet aluminum, the fixed calipers are designed to increase rigidity, improve braking efficiency, and improve pedal feel. Featuring internal crossover pipes, these calipers have a sleek streamlined look with no fragile external components. Pistons are sized to HPA specification with exact piston bore for perfect front and rear balance. Piston seals protect from dust, weather, and pressure to meet DOT spec.

Rotors: Two piece floating rotor with directional curved vanes, and HPA curved slots. Hats are anodized CNC machined aluminum, and discs are zinc-plated for corrosion protection.

Pads: The ceramic compound pads included with the kit are suitable for street and mild track use. They create minimal brake dust and are relatively quiet. Sharing the same profile as Corvette C5/C6, there are many different replacement options available on the open market. Note: the OEM pad wear sensors are eliminated.

02M Short Throw Shifter

The HPA Short Throw Shifter is manufactured from a dedicated casting which is CNC machined to precise tolerances.

For the Mk4 R32 platform, these versatile pieces of hardware can be set up on one of two different positions to suit your preference: a sporty 20% reduction in throw or a more aggressive 35%/40% reduction.

The perfectly balanced shifter counter weight gives each shift a precise and positive engagement and greatly improves the feeling over the sloppy stock shifter.

The bright zinc plated finish ensures that the stock appearance of your engine compartment is maintained while protecting the casting from corrosion. Includes threaded pin / ball connection for connecting the shifter linkage.

Mk4 Pendulum Mount

Our upgraded mounts reduce motor flex to improve torque transfer to the drivetrain, and prevent excessive movement under hard acceleration. Shifter engagement is faster and easier and stability is improved. These mounts will solidify the engine's connection to the chassis while still isolating its vibrations from the cabin.

Mk4 Club Sport Roll Bar

Designed for the performance oriented daily driver that is looking for race styling and an added sense of security for occasional track use, this bar hugs the outer skeleton of the car to maximize usable cabin space and features a removable harness bar to ensure full functionality of the front and back seats is completely maintained.

All components are electro-statically powder coated in a durable graphite black color; adding to the stealth installation and complementing the OEM interior. Both structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing, HPA’s Club Sport Roll Bar offers strength and style that is unsurpassed by anything else on the market… An absolute “must-have” for every weekend warrior’s ride…

Mk4 Rear Stress Bar

The HPA rear tie bar connects the shock towers and rear chassis on the Mk4 R32 to reduce flex and improve feel. The center clevis connection grasps the horizontal upper bar and the lower bars install with the use of rod ends at the both ends. The lower brackets tie into the original cargo hook mounting points, and the upper brackets piggy back on the OEM seat brackets.
The open triangulated design both provides strength and allows maximum use of cargo space.

SHS Coilovers

Developed in conjunction with the engineers at KW Automotive, the team at HPA Motorsports provides an out of the box coilover solution that is preset to perform.

HPA’s SHS coilovers offer an unmatched balance between handling and comfort. All SHS applications are based off KW’s twin tube low pressure damper design. Embracing KW’s patented valve technology, the high-speed dampening characteristics remain similar to OEM offering a near factory comfort level, while the low speed dampening power is increased to eliminate pitch and roll associated with heavy braking or corner entry. Each application features linear race springs on the front and progressive barrel springs on the rear.

SHS is an ideal suspension solution for the R32 owner looking to gain better control at corner entry on high-speed sprints, yet uses their car as a daily driver in the harsh real world environment.

Key Features:

  • Stainless steel construction guarantees the height adjustability won’t be lost through commuting on salt covered winter roads (KW INOX technology).
  • Self- centering integrated dust boots, which keep the winter sand and debris from damaging the piston rod seal for long life.
  • Stainless steel impregnated composite spring seats offer easy ride height adjustment all season long. No binding conventionally found with aluminum seats.
  • Race Springs are EPS powder and zinc-phosphate coated for long life.
  • Springs are made from chrome-silicon steel 54SiCR6 offering higher carry capacity with less material than standard steel wound springs.
  • Height adjustable on all 4 corners
  • Spanner Wrenches included for adjusting ride height

Lowering Range:
