Superlite 6 Piston 13 inch rotors. These brakes will fit Magnumforce Tubular
front suspension conversions and Mustang II style spindles. Superlite 6 Big
Brake Front Hub Kits are engineered as complete assemblies for conventional pin,
non-ABS front spindle applications. Billet Superlite 6 piston calipers,
PolyMatrix brake pads, forged aluminum hubs, machined aluminum hats, and 13" SRP
or GT directional vane rotors exemplify award winning style and provide the
ultimate in Big Brake stopping power. Born from Wilwood's 25 year tradition of
building championship brake systems, SL6 Big Brake kits are the perfect
compliment to wheel, tire, and suspension equipment upgrades.
Billet Superlite 6 Piston SL6 Calipers
SL6 calipers are pure performance featuring a fully CNC machined billet body
with closed end bridges and a reinforced bridge to body transition. Center
bridge body bolts provide additional strength and positive retention of the
pads. These elements combine as an ultra-rigid body that resists separation and
deflection under high load. Driver comfort and confidence soar with immediate
response from a very firm pedal. The SL6 generates high clamping force and
balanced pad loading from a race-proven differential bore six-piston
configuration. Staggered piston sizes distribute pressure to compensate for the
natural variances in temperature, load, and wear rate that occur over the length
of the pad. Pad life is extended and performance is measurably improved.
Stainless steel pistons are used in all custom show and sport performance
applications for their low heat transfer properties and high resistance to
corrosion. High temperature, square faced piston seals provide long service life
in extreme environments with positive piston retraction on release. Stainless
steel SRS bridge wear plates eliminate pad gouging and extend the service life
of the caliper. The spring-loaded action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad
rattle and dampens the vibration harmonics that contribute to pad squeal. Fluid
tubes are dampened to eliminate vibration stress and recess mounted for
protection from track debris. SL6 calipers bear Wilwood's signature and a high
luster black anodized finish in a style that will catch the eye and win the
favor of the most discriminating enthusiast.
Forged Billet Aluminum Hubs
Forged aluminum hubs are unmatched for strength and weight savings. Premium
grade alloy billets are forged into shape under high heat and pressure, then CNC
machined for precise fit on each spindle application. Hubs are complete with
bearing races installed and shipped with new bearings, grease seals, screw-on
billet aluminum hub caps and 1/2-20 RH grade 8 wheel lug studs.
GT Series Rotor Hats
GT aluminum hats are lightweight and strong to handle the exceptional brake
torque generated by the SL6 Big Brake system. The hats are specially designed
for use with the forged aluminum hubs. Wilwood's signature appears on a high
luster black anodized finish that prevents corrosion and enhances the overall
appearance of the complete package inside the wheel.
SRP or GT Series 13" Rotors
Large diameter vented iron rotors provide substantial increases in cooling and
stopping power over small diameter OE rotors. All Wilwood rotors are
manufactured from premium grade, long grain carbon iron to provide long wear
with high thermal stability and resistance to distortion. The superior heat
absorption and dissipation qualities of a vented iron rotor are essential to
preventing heat fade and realizing the longest service life from the pads and
rotors. For custom, show, and high performance sport driving, SRP rotor kits
offer the high-tech look and improved performance of a directional cross-drill
and face slot pattern. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the venting and
cleaning action of the holes and slots will reduce pad glaze, dissipate surface
heat, and minimize irregular pad build-up on the rotor faces. The results are
smoother engagement with improved consistency and response at the pedal. Every
SRP rotor is treated with a silver zinc wash to reduce corrosion on the areas of
the rotor not kept clean by pad contact. GT rotor kits feature Wilwood's
ultimate competition rotor with full detail machining, asymmetrical face
slotting and individual dynamic balancing. GT rotors run true and vibration free
with extended rotor life and pad wear on applications subject to higher
sustained operating temperatures.
PolyMatrix Brake Pads
PolyMatrix brake pads get fast response with high resistance to fade, long wear,
and the low rotor abrasion that PolyMatrix is so well known for. Specific pad
types and compounds have been selected for each application and are listed in
the service parts guide for each kit.
Caliper Brackets and Hardware
Aluminum mount brackets with steel threaded bolt hole inserts are lightweight
and strong. Each bracket is CNC machined for precise fit on each specific
spindle. Grade 8 strength or higher nuts, bolts, washers, and alignment shims
are included in each kit.
NOTE: Installation of Wilwood Disc Brake Kits may affect the wheel offset.
