    Worth every penny. The iron BFB is one of my favorite things I’ve done to my car so far. Brakes are one of the most important things on a car and I notice such an improvement with these over stock brakes. On track I am able to brake much later into corners and the brakes have basically zero fade even after a long session on track. The BFB kit paired with the stainless steel lines and fluid is such a solid upgrade. Around town I’ve never once heard any noise from them, pedal feels great and they are still in great shape even after I’ve put 70,000 miles on this big brake kit. Plus- they look really good. I get compliments all the time about how great the brakes look. Seriously the BBK is worth every penny, so happy I did it.

GENERAL INFORMATION
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Unplugged Performance x PFC Iron BFB Tesla Model 3 and Model Y BBK (Big Brake Kit) kit!

Engineered and made in the USA – Extensively tested on the Nurburgring!

Many customers want a track-capable big brake kit that doesn’t break the bank.  This is the absolute best-of-breed no-compromise iron rotor kit.  We leverage the same proven calipers from our racing winning BFB Superlight Carbon Ceramic Brake Kit and combine it with Performance Friction (PFC) built V3 iron rotors and our PFC produced specially designed brake pad compounds.   For racers, PFC needs no introduction, but for those newer to motorsports, PFC is the official brake supplier for Porsche factory motorsports vehicles including Porsche 991 GT3 Cup race cars. PFC brakes helped power our friends at BBi to multiple Pikes Peak victories at the 2021 PPHIC where our Tesla Model S Plaid also took top honors in its class.  PFC ZeroFailures rotors are well respected for unmatched durability under the harshest racing conditions. The V3 version PFC rotors we use are the latest generation of PFC’s patented technology and impressively do not utilize traditional bolt hardware to join the 2pc rotor/hat design. This also makes them more silent and rattle free than traditional bolted 2-piece rotor designs.

The Tesla Model 3 and Model Y are very capable track day weapons but the considerable weight of the vehicle overtaxes the stock braking system, even with upgraded components. Our class leading carbon ceramic BFB kit has had rave reviews for years and we’re excited to bring comparable braking performance with a class leading iron rotor solution at a more affordable cost. For advanced drivers we’ve found that they all benefit greatly from our extreme size and extreme performance of our BFB kits. This benefit has at times been mentioned in quotes like from Oscar Jackson Jr “I’m picking the same braking points with the Tesla as I do when I race Spec Miatas”. In other times what this means is that there’s finally enough repeatable stopping power to confidently trim back or remove regen which provides the benefit of helping thermal management when racing. Ultimately quality matters and size matters as well. This kit has the best of both worlds with the highest quality components from the world’s best factories combined with the massive sizing of 394x35mm rotors and 6 piston calipers that any track driven Tesla truly needs to win.

This huge 394mm 6 Piston UP Iron BFB kit does indeed fit with UP’s 18″ forged race wheels and can fit some other but not all 18″ forged wheels with high inner barrel clearance (18″ Model 3 stock wheels will not fit). 19″ wheels and above will fit even more easily with less thought needed. Please contact us if any concerns about fitting your car’s wheels.

A further note on the unique PFC V3 ZeroFailure rotor technology:

Performance Friction (PFC) full floating Direct Drive attachment system allows the brake disc to naturally expand/contract both radially and axially without being constrained by the hub. This helps eliminate rotor warping, reduces drag, and eliminates thermal judder vibrations and pulsations. Due to the high quality of PFC’s design and manufacturing, the Direct Drive rotors are completely silent and rattle-free – a trait not typically found in 2-piece designs. PFC custom develops their own proprietary metallurgy for these rotors as well to ensure the longest lifespan and best performance.

Kit Includes:

  • 6-Piston monoblock aluminum big brake caliper set with all necessary hardware
  • 394mm x 35mm 15.5″ track-proven Iron Rotors PFC V3 2 piece floating rotor technology
  • Veined and scalloped rotor design to minimize weight while maximizing cooling
  • Brake pads designed specifically by PFC for UP for use with this kit
  • 6061 machined billet aluminum caliper adapter brackets and related installation hardware
  • Premium coated German TUV produced stainless steel braided brake lines engineered specifically for Tesla Model 3 and Model Y
  • Kit includes all components necessary for installation (high performance brake fluid will need to be supplied by the buyer, and can be purchased at any automotive parts retailer)
  • Made from components produced in USA, Italy, and Germany

A NOTE ON BRAKE FLUID & HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING:

Brake fluid plays a vital role in the performance and reliability of every brake system, especially so in high performance driving. A professional brake bleed with high performance fluid is a requirement for the functionality of our brake system. We recommend using Motul RBF 660 (our go-to fluid) or Endless RF-650 brake fluid. Brake fluid should be flushed frequently for race cars in particular because over time moisture content builds and moisture inherently decreases the temperature limit of the brake fluid. Brake fluid and the temperature capabilities of it matter especially due to the high temperatures the heavy and powerful Model S generate. The higher temperatures seen in the brake system transfers heat to the brake fluid and when brake fluid boils those bubbles create air in the brake lines. Air in the brake lines from boiled fluid can create near instant loss of brake pedal. Therefore, using a high temp brake fluid and managing brake heat is a key to safe braking for extreme environments. Loss of pedal is a different symptom than brake fade and typically a symptom of brake fluids exceeding their temperature range (or alternatively a leak in the system) whereas brake fade is often a byproduct of the brake pads exceeding operating temperature range. In both cases managing temperatures in a racing environment and adequate testing is typically found in motorsports drivers and always strongly encouraged to get the best and most safe result. We flush our brake fluid after each race and we monitor caliper temperatures for these same reasons on our race cars. Please always feel welcome to talk to our team if you have questions about motorsport use. For street driving the temperatures seen are significantly less and this plays a lesser role although the same fluids are suggested for street cars as well.

What our customers say
I’ve worked on cars and pushed them close to their mechanical limits all my life. This Model S Plaid definitely needs a brake upgrade if you tend to push your car harder than the average driver lol. The BBK install was pretty straight forward. You can use the instructions provided or with no...
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I rate 4/5 stars since epoxy would be better than double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors.
I was not going to get these, as I do not track my car. I love the any chance to control as much about my car as possible. Just one more way to stand out from the crowd. And, I can get my tires to last a reasonable amount of miles.
These carbon fiber seats are amazing in our plaid drag car. Looks like it came from Tesla just like that. 🔥🔥🔥 Thanks
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. Wow, what to say about this spoiler. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3 that since I have brought it home less than a week ago, I have had more that fifty conversations from strangers that absolutely have to have this spoiler. It...
These Rear brakes was a big help with our S Plaid drag racing car.Feels great and paired with the Front (BBK) & Upgraded to Racing brake fluid with the stainless steel lines. Thanks
You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. WHEELS, what to say about this indescribable addition. There are so many incredible things added to my SMG3, but this wheel set altered the car drastically. The RIDE is much improved with the grip around tight corners like Topanga Canyon with the other four...
Same as the fascia, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I love the dry carbon material and would highly recommend. I wish the diffuser fins came standard, even with a higher cost. With some DIY, you can make the air ducts in the bumper...
An absolute MUST when thinking about your first upgrade. The Model Y, even in it's Performance Model, has more body roll than you'd like. It was one of my biggest complaints when driving the first few months. After installation, body roll was greatly reduced. Cornering on-ramps and turns with a...
Unplugged Performance UP Emblem You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Emblem, just another seemingly innocuous item that KIRK added to make the car pop when driving behind it. The sun shines on the titanium and it screams at you and then goes back into its subtle way. To say that I love...
Exactly what I wanted. Much better appearance. Beautiful stance. Both stiffer in the corners and smoother on the regular road imperfections. Feels more tuned and prepared. Will recommend to all my Tesla owning friends.
The ascension front fascia makes my model 3 look so much sportier and aggressive. I’ve had it on my car for over a year now and I love it. The car looks way better than stock. This is how the car should look coming out of the factory.
UP Pikes Peak Race Team Soft Shell Jacket by North Face You can see my photos under Steve Guevara. The UP Jacket I first noticed on the Pikes Peak video on the set in the shop and I asked KIRK, “Do you have some of those”? He pulled two Medium beauties from the vault and added a couple of...
For my 2018 Model 3P I got the mild springs. Amazing! The ride feel is even better than I was hoping for. The car is my daily driver and the harshness of the stock springs with the 20" rims made me consider switching to 19". Instead I figured I try UP's dual rate springs first since it seemed to...
Love these 6-points Harness in our S Plaid drag race car. Looks so amazing in the car with the UP carbon fiber seats..👌🏾
We got these (BBK) installed on our S Plaid was the best think we could have upgraded first. They feel so great when stopping on the big end on the tracks, So much light weight as well from the factory stock brakes. Thanks
Product is top notch when I installed them it was like switching from a 1 piston sliding caliper to a bbk. Also cold performance and noise are really good
Christos Kentistos
Psychologists say that the more you pay for something, the more you like it. Maybe that’s what’s happening here, but the front fenders are now my most cherished upgrade. I love that I can unlock up to a 315mm square setup with a track camber and 305-295mm with a daily camber. I’ll never be...
After using the fascia for over two years, this feels like a must-have Tesla upgrade. The stock Model 3 just doesn’t look the same anymore. I would recommend epoxy over double-sided tape to secure the ultrasonic sensors for a longer-lasting, flush fitment.
You can see my photos on the site under Steve Guevara to see the detailed work that went into the front fascia unit. I said before that my skeptical wife told me to pick out the car that I wanted, so I liked the TM3 the best as my kids are away at college and now it is my turn to be spoiled. I also...
