Q50 Performance Brake Components

We have pieced together the final piece of the puzzle and now offer the Stoptech rotors for the Infiniti Q50 Sport.0:)



StopTech Brake Rotors - SportStop Drilled & Slotted: StopTech recognizes that great brakes need to look as good as they perform. Performance wheels and tires are best complemented with StopTech SportStop Cross-Drilled & Slotted rotors.

SportStop Drilled & Slotted brake rotors prevent glazing of the pads, add bite and improve wet and dry braking performance.

Every SportStop Drilled & Slotted brake rotor is produced from a high quality Centric Parts blank casting and finished in a durable e-coating for corrosion resistance.

SportStop Drilled & Slotted rotors look great behind custom wheels, improve the initial bite of the brake pads, and help wipe away the debris that forms between the pad and the disc. A set of SportStop cross-Drilled & Slotted rear replacement rotors is a great way to match the aesthetics of a StopTech Big Brake Kit with the cross-Drilled & Slotted rotor option.

E-Coated Finish
Every SportStop rotor is finished with black e-coating on both sides of the hat, inside the the cooling vanes, and on the outside edge. E-coating is a superior electro-statically applied finish designed to withstand 400 hours of salt water exposure without rusting. This is especially important on both mounting faces of the hat where it touches the hub flange and back face of the wheel. Any accumulation of rust in these area can lead to installed lateral run out issues.

Power Alloy Metallurgy
Power Alloy metallurgy is exclusive feature of SportStop rotors. In specific vehicle applications, StopTech works with foundry partners to increase the molybdenum or carbon content of the castings, and to carefully control the cooling rate during production to reach targets for hardness and tensile strength.

Cooling Vane Design
Nearly all SportStop Cross-Drilled & Slotted rotors have unique Drilled & Slotted hole patterns for the left and right sides of the vehicle. For these directional patterns, straight vane or pillar vane rotors are used to ensure that a Drilled & Slotted hole never touches a cooling vane.



StopTech Brake Rotors - SportStop Slotted: Excessive heat can cause resins in your brake pad to vaporize or "outgas." As the brake pad wears, the used friction material turns into a fine dust. This boundary layer of heat, gas and dust builds up between the pad and rotor surfaces and inhibits performance. Here's where StopTech SportStop slotted brake rotors make a big difference. StopTech SportStop Slotted Brake Rotors are a true performance rotor and feature:

* Power Alloy castings (on select applications)
  • Engineered Performance Rotor
  • Superior resistance to cracking due to thermal stress
  • Increased molybdenum (higher carbon)content that extends reliability, service life and helps reduce NVH “noise” issues
  • Rotor material is a direct descendant of the patented AeroRotor from StopTech
* Introducing directional curve vane design (on select applications)
  • Improved vane design or OE equivalent on all rotors
  • Center split castings
  • New short slot design runs perpendicular to the vane to preserve rotor strength.
  • Direct OE Replacement
  • Improved wet weather response
  • Increased initial “bite”
  • Double disc ground for a consistent friction surface and Improved pad bed-in
  • Mill balanced
  • Black E-Coated non-friction surfaces on “Power Alloy” rotors
  • Enhances open wheel appearance

Hmm....I wonder what it would take to convert the nonsport brakes to the sports...would that be too much trouble...maybe better off going completely aftermarket?

Should be very similar to the non sport G37. You would need calipers, hardware, rotors, pads. The only problem is must go after market for the brake lines and they are completely different than the G37. The dust shields would have to be modified as well to accept the larger rotors.

Hmm....so might be easier to just go with the Q sport upgrade...so you can take the calipers hardware lines pads from that n just get the stop tech rotors! Hmm

Take a look at this link. It has a bit of a walkthrough for a G37 conversation from stock brakes to the sport setup with the stoptech rotors.

Should be fairly similar on the Q.

No idea on my end if the bracket adapter used for a G37 also works on a Q50 in this case.
I imagine it should though.

There is no bracket adapter necessary just like the G37.

Bolt on affair...minus the brake lines. You would have to use OEM for now which means everything from the q50 sport would be required. You could use the stoptech rotors and any after market pad that the g37 sport uses.
