BIG BRAKE KIT
The perfect compliment to any road car
The story of Sparta.
Founded in 2011 and headquartered in Seattle, WA, Sparta Evolution is a world class designer and manufacturer of high performance brake systems, specifically engineered for motorsports and high performance street applications globally. Our proprietary forging process enhances the quality, performance and aesthetics of our brake products. Reducing unsprung weight, improving rigidity and dissipating heat quickly and efficiently is what separates Sparta brakes from the rest, and is essential to assure that racers and street enthusiasts outperform their competitors.
Housed in a state of the art facility, our headquarters features engineering and manufacturing capabilities that utilize the latest in CAD software and CNC machines to produce the finest quality components, from initial design to final production. Defining a purpose for the development of new products is crucial. Whether it is a new component or a complete braking system, we understand that each part must be optimized for the vehicle that it is going on. We take into account not only the braking performance of a vehicle but the overall performance as well.
Race proven, Sparta Evolution products have been put to the test as we’ve performed over hundreds of hours and thousands of miles of on-track testing. Working with teams from various motorsports levels, from production car racing (NASA, SCCA) to Sports Car racing (IMSA), we understand the needs at all levels of motorsports.
As the performance division of Mando Corporation, we’re able to take our testing even further with the use of the Sparta R&D center in Detroit powered by MRA. We utilize the latest machines to push our products beyond aftermarket standards and ensure that our products meet the standards of OEM. This translates to unmatched reliability and performance. This partnership benefits our customers and partners as we understand that they want and expect nothing but the best.
Research and Development
Sparta Evolution has a state-of-the-art R&D center located in Novi, Michigan. This facility houses our research and development teams, as well as our full range of testing and evaluation equipment and machinery. Access to a facility like this allows us to bring new products to market more quickly, thanks to our ability to fully assess each design before any of our products ever hit the road.
Our Novi center features a large and diverse workforce numbering over 80 engineers from around the world. This highly experienced workforce has a solid balance of technical competence and certifications with Master, and bachelor degreed personnel bringing over 800 man-years of combined engineering experience to products we bring to market.
The use of CAD software to run analyses like FEA, CFD, and thermal analysis ensures that our braking components are as strong, lightweight, and efficient as possible before going into prototyping and production. To achieve this in our manufacturing, the materials we use are equally as important. Sparta Evolution only utilizes the best in materials, from forgings to billets of aluminum to produce various components from our CNC machines. Following stringent quality control protocols, each component is visually inspected before undergoing precise measurements, down to two microns. This guarantees that all of our products are within tolerance. This level of detail translates to not only better products but higher reliability and durability. The key to our success is that we’re able to oversee the entire process in-house.
