Recommended Posts

The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) is pleased to announce that Alcon; specialists in brakes and clutches have implemented a contingency program for the 2013 NASA regional racing season.

 

This newly announced contingency program will be immediately available to drivers in all 2013 regional events. The program requires competitors visit http://www.alconkits.com/NASA.html to register for the contingency program before you begin to collect awards. Once registered, competitors participating in the program will be eligible for one “Alcon Dollar” per NASA regional point they collect during the 2013 regional racing season. These “Alcon Dollars” can be used for the purchase of any Alcon branded products from AlconKits.com (operated by Motodelta Motorsports) and may be redeemed anytime during the 2013 calendar year.

 

Additionally, any NASA member is also eligible for a 10% discount toward any Alcon products on the http://www.alconkits.com website. For more details on the discount offer and complete program details on this new contingency program, please visit http://www.nasaproracing.com/contingency.

DBeck,

 

An 18" Wheel E36 kit is already in the pipe because of the NASA feedback! Should be able to deliver in about 5-6 weeks. It will have the same specs as the E46 kit.

 

Front 6 piston monobloc calipers with 365mm x 32mm semi-floating rotors.

Rear 4 piston calipers with semi-floating rotors and 310x28mm semi-floating rear rotors. (no parking brake provision for the race setup)

Replacement braided steel brake lines included...

 

Bonus: We are offering in a race version with aluminum pistons (less unsprung weight) and no dust seals. The street version will have dust seals and steel pistons. The race version will be priced substantially under the current street kit price.

Pretty sure that will not fit under the 17 inch wheels that most E36's run ? Anything with a 4 piston front and something closer to 332mm as a front only kit ?

Scott, correct. If there is interest in a version for 17" wheels that should be possible.

 

So most E36 race cars in GTS are running 17's? What about you guys driving them on the street?

 

In most cases we have printable fitment templates to check wheel and accessory clearances before ordering. (see llink following)

Chris,

 

There a some that run 18's but the majority I think you will find run 17's on their E36 race cars. I also believe there is a difference for the M and non M cars as far as fitment(mounting bracket) is concerned. Not too sure about what guys run on their street cars. Just interested to see what you're offering as better brakes is always a good thing !

Scott,

 

Noted and we're working on that. Going to be the M3 almost certainly...

 

Definitely appreciate the feedback and this is one of the reasons Alcon wanted to do this with us, to help better understand the US market. So any feedback you, or anyone else has, will be accepted with a serious willingness to listen!

 

Regards,

 

Chris

Most of the GTS E36 crowd runs 17s unless tire sizes dictate they go 18s. I was disappointed to see the kits were all so massive (and none available for E36). Honestly even most the "ride and style" street guys on bimmerforums don't run such massive kits even though they are available from multiple sources.

 

I had a hell of a time selling my 14" Brembo BBK kit used that I got with a car I bought. I ended up selling for a ridiculous price. (less than equivalent used 13" kits that were also for sale in the forums).

 

BTW- We appreciate that you are looking at our feedback and the chance for contingency! Thank you!

Appreciate the feedback. There are options available with smaller rotors. Most likely the 343x32 or 295x27mm rotor with a 4 piston caliper is going to work and is a common config for 17" wheels. At this point I am just confirming and will post back as soon as I am sure. I'd rather be a bit conservative here on providing information until we have a definitive answer... So stand by E36 M3 Guys as I think we can have this rectified shortly.

BTW I also wanted to add to this that we are looking for one or two people who are interested in blogging or writing for us on brake related topics. They don't all need to be Alcon or NASA related. The key is that we want good brake content. ...and we'll pay. Not only for traffic generated but if you generate sales, we'll pay a commission on that sale.

 

These posts can be:

 

1. On our blog

2. On your blog or website, facebook, etc..

3. On forums and related sites.

 

More info here:

 

http://www.alconkits.com/index.php/General-Information/News/AlconKits-Referral-Program-Public.html

 

This is a particularly good deal if you are active on forums as they seem to generate the best interest and traffic. At the end of each month, we'll send you the traffic and commission amount (2.5% of any sale) to your paypal account...

 

Spammers need not apply.

As stated previously, thanks for the reply. I run 18's now so no size problem for me. I'll look for the kit when it comes available. Bigger brakes are on my radar.

Is TT eligible for this as well? If so, I'd be interested in E36 M3 w/17" wheel fitments. Thanks.

 

Yes TT is eligible for the contingency. I'm sorry this wasn't clear in the announcement, we'll need to work on that.

 

We've just about finalized the E36 race kit for 17" wheels. I'll have specs published for it soon.
