  • We don’t think anyone will dispute the importance of brakes on your car for safety reasons but we also know that not just any brake will do if you are interested in things beyond the safety issue; such as, brakes that you can feel confident about, that make driving easy and for those race enthusiasts brakes that reduce lap times. So let us introduce you to the archetype of brake designers and manufacturers, ALCON. This is a company whose repertoire of products start with something as small as tiny brake-by-wire controllers for Formula E racing cars to calipers needed on 35 tons of armored vehicles. Since the company’s founding in 1983 by John Moore who is both an engineer and sports car racer ALCON has had as its goal customer satisfaction.

About Alcon

We don’t think anyone will dispute the importance of brakes on your car for safety reasons but we also know that not just any brake will do if you are interested in things beyond the safety issue; such as, brakes that you can feel confident about, that make driving easy and for those race enthusiasts brakes that reduce lap times. So let us introduce you to the archetype of brake designers and manufacturers, ALCON. This is a company whose repertoire of products start with something as small as tiny brake-by-wire controllers for Formula E racing cars to calipers needed on 35 tons of armored vehicles. Since the company’s founding in 1983 by John Moore who is both an engineer and sports car racer ALCON has had as its goal customer satisfaction.

Excellence is the key word in describing ALCON whose client base is world wide and whose goal is to satisfy even the most discriminating customer who is interested in extremely high quality and low volume brakes. In addition ALCON designs and manufactures clutches and other automotive components and all are treated with the same engineering excellence as in the ALCON brakes.

ALCON knows that at the heart of all great products is the ability to design something that is better than the competition’s and that not only works better but lasts longer. The importance of research and development is not lost on ALCON and they are always looking toward the future developing new ideas and they do this through the use of primo topology optimization and 3D printing and the revolutionary lattice core constriction.

Simulation has allowed ALCON the ability to improve the quality and efficiency of their products by being able to do such things as examining the way air flows through a disc or adding turbulence-inducing ridges to the vanes. All of this results in a lighter product that has increased thermal efficiency requiring less ducting, improves aerodynamics and creates an ability to slow quicker and be faster everywhere else

And ALCON recognizes the importance of the manufacturing process as the key needed to create the very best products. Consequently, they use the epitome of five axis CNC machines with which to create components from forgings and solid billets of aluminum and all calipers meet the highest standards through extensive quality control. To further assure you of a primo product performance testing and measurement is conducted with ALCON on site dynamometers and their NVH dyno can map all noise issues, vibration and harshness.

The ALCON engineers know that their components must be strong, light and efficient and so they use top notch CAE design software and avant-garde technologies such as topology optimization. But ALCON does not rest on its laurels but rather looks to the future and recognizes every opportunity available with one such opportunity being in the area of 3D printing and lattice core construction.

Whether you are in the market for brakes for your high performance road car or a racer who needs the special brakes ALCON is sure to be able to meet your needs and if you are interested in clutches or other automotive components ALCON might have just what you are looking for.

These are some of the items you can find at LMPerformance for your BMW

If you own a BMW, the luxury German car, then we know you appreciate the finer things in life and want top quality performance out of your car and we want to help you do that with the prestigious array of performance parts available on our web site. Parts like those from the inimitable SPEC Clutch line with Clutch Kits from street kit Stage 1,2,2+, 3, and 3+ to Race Kits Stage 4 and 5 and the Mini Twin and in the SPEC Super Twin for the M6, M5 and M3. We know you don’t want a cookie cutter clutch but one that satisfies your driving needs and the stage selection of the SPEC clutch is determined primarily by use, rather it be for street use or more high performance use such as racing or autocross. and by materials used to manufacture the various clutches such as molded carbon KEVLAR, full faced Kevlar with steel backing, carbon semi-metallic on one side, carbon semi-metallic 6 puck sprung or not sprung, carbon semi-metallic with a double sprung hub, solid hub with 8 rivets or full-metallic disc- all decided by you, the driver. The pressure plate in your BMW is the driving force between your engine's power and the drive line and if you are doing intense driving you need a performance pressure plate like the one from SPEC for increased holding power. Another great product from SPEC, the billet flywheel exceeds the industry standard of .010 tolerances by a considerable amount with the .001 tolerance guaranteeing ideal balance and flat bedding and can be rebuilt and have a replaceable steel friction plate and they are a lightweight alternative to your factory flywheel.

Several estimable exhaust kit options are available for your BMW and one such brand is CORSA Performance, a renowned manufacturer of aftermarket performance exhausts. CORSA Performance features straight unrestricted flow mufflers and are available depending on application in 3 different sound levels to suit your taste. For example, CORSA'S BMW M3 exhaust system features a patented non-restrictive straight-through design resulting in the reduction of back pressure and freeing up much needed power all resulting in improved horsepower and torque. Since there is no drone because of CORSA’S own RSC Reflective Sound Cancellation technology, you never need to worry about the that annoyance just expect great sound.

Another very popular choice by BMW enthusiasts are the B&B (Billy Boat) exhausts which are made right here in the U.S. in Arizona. They feature 304 mandrel bent Stainless steel and come in several muffler styles such as the Bullets, PRT, and Fusion. B&B tunes each muffler to match its application for the best possible performance gain and sound quality combination. Billy Boat recently started to incorporate the PRT technology into all of their muffler systems. PRT Technology allows true straight through exhaust passage under aggressive driving, though a mellow sound is emitted at cruising speed thanks to the unique Purge Chamber. The use of two distinct packing materials and several S.C.C.’S inside the BILLY BOAT muffler enable them to create a harmonious sound that will have heads turning when you drive by.
