Over four decades of manufacturing experience and unsurpassed knowledge through research and development, DBA has positioned itself as Australia’s most awarded manufacturer and a global leader in brake rotor manufacturing.
With continuous improvements in engineering along with a thirst for innovation, DBA has managed to consistently redefine and deliver braking solutions for an extensive range of vehicle applications and conditions. With disc brakes, as with any safety component, there can be no short-cuts. Drivers worldwide demand DBA products for consistent, reliable and superior performance. DBA ensures this by engineering discs that are far superior to generic and aftermarket counterparts. How? DBA sets the bar in quality, tolerances, premium metals and manufacturing equipment that delivers premium quality disc brake rotors.
Street Series T2 - Featuring Patented "Kangaroo Paw" ventilation system, with Bi-Symmetrical T2 curve slots dampening the vibration harmonics and noise, resulting in a quieter, responsive and smoother brake pedal feel. The T2 slot design assists in even pad wear helps minimise the glazing of pad surfaces
Street Series X-GOLD cross-drilled - Featuring Patented "Kangaroo Paw" ventilation system with non-directional cross-drill and slotting maximises escape of heated gas to increase the consistency of every stop. Non-directional also eliminates the need of left and right specific rotors
Club Spec T3 4000 Series - T3 slotted rotors are DBA’s most advanced brake rotor on the market. Designed for extreme road and race applications, they are engineered for high performance and are targeted to the aggressive street driver as well as the dedicated track enthusiast. In 1 piece 4000 series the tri-symmetrical curve slots are CNC machined to dampen vibration harmonics for a quieter and more responsive pedal feel. With 48 precision machined slots, the number of out-gassing points for brake pad friction gasses greatly increases the consistency and effectiveness of each stop. Being a tri-symmetrical design also eliminates the need for left and right discs.
The T3 slotted rotor also comes with DBA’s innovative Kangaroo Paw ventilation system, consisting of 144 diamond and tear drop pillars between the two rotor faces. This system increases surface area by up to 59.7% and adds almost 10% greater mass, resulting in greater heat dissipation, minimising brake fade and prolonging the life of the pad and the rotor. The patented Kangaroo Paw system ensures your rotor is stronger, cooler and is designed to out-perform traditional straight-vane disc rotors by up to 20%.
However, if the temperatures do build up on the rotor, DBA’s trademarked XG150 High Carbon Alloyed Iron will assist in minimising warping and cracking, prolonging the service life of the rotor. The special formulation allows an increase in thermal capacity so that the rotor may handle constant extremes of heat over extended periods of time.
For motorsport and aggressive street applications, the T3 rotor shows its true colours. Thermographic Temperature Monitoring paint markings on the rotor will aid the driver by changing colours at specific temperature thresholds to indicate peak braking temperature. This will help the driver to monitor rotor fatigue and should also assist in helping choose the most suitable Winmax or Circo brake pad to match the temperatures of the rotor.
Club Spec T3 5000 Series 2pce - The 5000 Series two piece rotors offer the same benefits as the 4000 Series one piece item, but offer a lightweight design thanks to the incorporation of Alumalite hats made from 6061-T6 aeronautical grade aluminium. This reduces a great amount of unsprung weight, improving suspension and handling characteristics during high performance use.
The ability of the aluminium hats to reduce heat transfer also benefit both the disc rotor and other vital components such as brake pads and wheel hub bearings. Another added benefit is the cost of replacement, being a two piece design, DBA offers replacement rotors for the 5000 series, allowing the reuse of the Alumalite hat.
