Confident Braking PerformanceConfident Braking Performance  - Overview - Mitsubishi Lancer

The all-new 2008 Lancer GTS not only tames curves, but does so with the confident stopping power of the same brakes as the larger, heavier Outlander SUV -- 11.6-in. (294 mm) vented discs in front and 11.9-in. (302 mm) solid discs in rear. The Lancer DE and ES models employ 10.9-in. (276 mm) vented front disc brakes. The ES has 10.3-in. (262 mm) solid disc rear brakes. The DE has highly efficient drum-type rear brakes.

The front disc brakes utilize powerful dual-piston calipers, with the GTS featuring single-piston calipers for its rear discs. Front rotors on all models measure 1.0 in. thick, and the rear rotors on GTS are 0.4 in. thick. Additionally, higher friction coefficient pads improve performance. The single 10-in. brake vacuum booster, with a long-stroke master cylinder, improves boost power and brake feel. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is standard on GTS and ES and available for DE models. The system incorporates Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). A change in the surface treatments for both the calipers and rotors has eliminated hazardous materials.
