Pad shape is 7420

I bought the Wilwood 4-pot caliper kit from Eric at brakeswap.com. I wanted to share my impressions and evaluate performance of the kit under the most extreme conditions.

Teaser so far but the kit is on the car. I will post up with impressions in the coming days as I bed the pads and finish some other projects on the car. The first track event is in a week and a half, followed by Road America on the 17th. Last fall I was hitting 130 mph in the straights there. With the new brakes and more power this year, I hope to hit the mid 130's

I am running Porterfield R4-S pads for street and Performance Friction 01 for track. The main reason I chose the Wilwood kit is the huge availability of different pad compounds. Porterfield and PF are some of the big names in professional racing. I will be running Centric premium and DBA 4000 rotors for street and track, respectively. I flushed the brake system with Amsoil series 600 DOT4 brake fluid. http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/bf4.aspx

My previous track setup was Carbotech XP8 with the DBA 4000. I am also going to look into installing brake ducts. I bought an extra set of fog light trim covers to attach duct hose to and route back to the hub area.




CF duct inlets will match the grille

More info to come
