The G88 is probably the best known of all Tarox discs and the most instantly recognisable with its multiple radial grooves on the braking surface.
These grooves are designed to generate a turbine effect which dissipates heat build up, allowing the discs to run cooler and reducing the possibility of warping, vibration or cracking.
All G88 discs are heat treated for strength, hand finished to ensure the smoothest possible braking surface and TUV approved.
Since the early 1980s TAROX brake discs have been associated with absolute quality. Blank casts used for TAROX discs, after having passed stringent quality controls, are subjected to structural stress relieving heat treatment at the end of each machining phase as a result of more than 30 years experience.
Facing is performed on CNC turning machines or; in the case of G88 discs; on in house custom built machinery.
Another distinguishing feature of TAROX brake discs is their perfectly level surface machined to a tolerance approaching 0.015 mm, achieved during the final finishing of the braking surfaces on grinding machines; each disc is ground individually by specialised operator resulting in that distinctive shining look.
TAROX discs work best when coupled with TAROX pads which have been specifically formulated to deliver optimum performance with heat treated discs.
