StopTech Introduces Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines for 2010 Ford SVT Raptor
Industry, Calif. – May 22, 2012 - StopTech, the ultra-performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, has announced a Braided Stainless Steel Brake Line Kit for the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. StopTech Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines provide a quicker, firmer, more consistent pedal response by reducing system compliance and maintaining consistent brake pressure.

StopTech stainless steel lines provide precision brake modulation, especially during threshold braking. The improvement in pedal feel is more dramatic on older vehicles where the factory rubber line may have softened and swelled due to age.
StopTech brake lines consist of a PTFE (commonly referred to as Teflon®) inner line that carries the brake fluid, which is then covered with a layer of woven stainless steel braid. The PTFE tube is very resistant to expansion under pressure and will not degrade from exposure to brake fluid.
The braided stainless steel provides support for the PTFE and the weave is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion. The stainless braided hose is also coated with a clear abrasion resistant PVC cover for maximum protection against chaffing.
Introduced in 2010, Ford intended the SVT Raptor for dedicated off-road use. To that end the Raptor has a number of modifications to improve its off-road ability. It includes a full set of Fox shocks with 36 inches of shock travel. It wears a wider body and fenders than the standard F-Series truck and has "F-O-R-D" spelled out in the center of its grille. The original Raptor featured a base 310-hp 5.4L Triton V8, while the current model is powered by a 411-hp 6.2L V8 paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Besides the new Raptor kit, StopTech offers a variety of Braided Stainless Steel Brake Line Kits with end fittings to meet most application needs. All fittings are engineered for proper fit and durability. All necessary brackets and fasteners are included with each line kit.
