Description Warranty Info
Street Performance Drilled and Slotted Brake Kit by Wilwood®. With this kit, you will significantly improve your braking performance. Suitable for all types of custom show and high performance street/strip vehicles this kit is a perfect compliment to wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades. Rotors feature cross drill and slot pattern to provide better outgassing and increased cooling capacity. Optional caliper finishes allow for personalizing your vehicle's style.

Features:

Cross-Drill and face slot pattern
Corrosion resistance coating
Precision machined rotors to less than 0.001 tolerance for overall flatness
Ensures maximum braking efficiency
Smoother engagement feel at the pedal and consistent response from pads
Suitable for high performance street/track racing and everyday use
Drilled and slotted rotors provide increased cooling capacity and better outgassing
Rotors are cast from carbon iron
Rotors ensure thermal stability and resistance to distortion
Long wear rate for sustained high heat braking
Proudly manufactured in the United States


Benefits:

Slots provide gas and water dissipation
Slots help to increase pad bite and improve air circulation
Drilled Holes and Slots create an escape route for debris, dust, gases, and water
Slots clean and de-glaze pad surface for optimum pad coefficient of friction
Drilled rotors improve the appearance of your wheels and provide reduced rotor weight
2-Piece rotors offer great weight savings and provide rapid heat dissipation compared to 1-piece rotors
Vented type of rotors offer much faster heat dissipation
Multi-piston calipers provide clamping force on both sides of the rotor at the same time and uniformly transfer braking force to the brake pads
Caliper pistons are hollow to save weight
Aluminum caliper body allows for exceptional light weight (up to 40% of weight savings) and ensures superior corrosion resistance
Caliper heat-resistant coating prevent cracking and fading


Fixed calipers create friction from the brake pads on both sides of the rotor at time interval
This Street Performance Drilled and Slotted Brake Kit provides increased levels of strong braking. The complete package includes drilled and slotted rotors, premium brake pads and calipers representing the latest racing technology. The calipers are available in various finishes to reflect your individual style. Originally used for serious competitions because of their advanced cooling capacity, drilled and slotted rotors now became popular in street applications for their pure aesthetic value. Whether you have a daily driver or something ready for the show, this Street Performance Drilled and Slotted Brake Kit is what you need to get optimized braking performance.

Fixed calipers by Wilwood offer unmatched stopping power. The pistons in fixed calipers are located on both sides of the disc, allowing for evenly distributed clamping force. They apply more squeezing power and apply it more evenly during braking as force is directly applied to both sides. Multi-piston calipers allow for more even braking and, as a result, less pad distortion. The more number of pistons a caliper has, the more clamping force it provides. Thanks to the evenly distributed pressure, these calipers ensure an even wear pattern along the entire length of the brake pad. Usually these calipers have smaller diameter pistons than single-piston calipers.

The internal vane design of these vented rotors by Wilwood provides excellent heat dissipation during brake cycles. As the wheel spins, the vanes around the edge of the rotor draw air in and pull it through to help cool the rotor. With the extra heat dissipated there will be less brake fade. This rotor design by Wilwood combines the best features of a slotted rotor and cross-drilled rotor allowing your brakes to run cooler and sweep away water and dust. The cross-drilled and slotted rotors improve air circulation and increase brake pad bite, ensuring incredible stopping performance.
Do not drive on untested brakes. Brakes must be tested after installation or maintenance.

Make sure pedal is firm: Hold firm pressure on pedal for several minutes, it should remain in position without sinking. If pedal sinks toward floor, check system for fluid leaks. DO NOT drive vehicle if pedal does not stay firm or can be pushed to the floor with normal pressure.
At very low speed (2-5 mph) apply brakes hard several times while turning steering from full left to full right, repeat several times. Remove the wheels and check that components are not touching, rubbing, or leaking.
Carefully examine all brake components, brake lines, and fittings for leaks and interference.
Make sure there is no interference with wheels or suspension components.
Drive vehicle at low speed (15-20 mph) making moderate and hard stops. Brakes should feel normal and positive. Again check for leaks and interference.
Always test vehicle in a safe place where there is no danger to (or from) other people or vehicles.
Always wear seat belts and make use of all safety equipment.
