        C5 Wilwood Corvette Front Big Brake Kit
        The new C5 Corvettes were a departure from the previous models in body design, chassis engineering and engine development. The Corvette horsepower increased greatly from 1997 to 2004 and during this generation, the engineers at Bowling Green developed the special Z06 package that included a 405 horsepower engine. Considering that is net rating instead of gross, that is more power than any of the old 427 engines. Corvettes have always been track cars, but now they had the power to really make a difference. Wilwood Engineering recognized the fun enthusiasts were having with their Corvettes, so they came out with several excellent brake kits. Track enthusiasts could order a W6A Big Brake Kit (Race) for high heat situations. A matching rear race kit is also available. The Corvette can also be equipped with a Superlite 6R Big Brake Front Brake Kit that can be ordered with 13.06 and 14-inch rotors. Matching Superlite 4R Big Brake Rear Brake Kits are also available with 12.88 and 14-inch rotors. Wilwood also offers Pro Matrix front and rear rotor kits and they have a complete listing of high performance brake pads for the original Calipers.
        C5 Wilwood Corvette Front Big Brake Kit
        Wilwood W6AR calipers were designed for the specific purpose of providing big capacity braking with large diameter rotors for heavy weight and extreme duty vehicles. For cars, it’s the biggest of the big providing big brake performance for show and dual purpose street and track vehicles. For trucks and SUV’s, it provides big stopping power for towing, off-road, and enhanced braking with wheel and tire upgrades. Kits listed for specific vehicles are fully compatible with OE master cylinder output and ABS function. Directional staggered vane 14.25” rotors provide maximum cooling for sustained high heat durability.
        W6A Radial Mount
        The W6A forged six-piston caliper delivers heavy duty stopping power for the road or track. The caliper incorporates race technology into a body design with widespread adaptability. Radial mounting, two options for piston volume, and a rotor diameter ranging from 12.19" to 14.25" give this caliper the versatility necessary to suit all types of heavyweight braking requirements.
        The W6A body is the product of FEA computer design and stress flow forging technology. FEA technology allows the designer to test the prototype in a computer environment to determine the optimal structural design within the dimensional parameters of the component. Stress flow forging produces a part with the internal grain structure of the metal aligned in the direction of the flow of the body contour. The results are a caliper with superior clamping efficiency and ultimate strength against fatigue, stresses, and distortion under load.
        This caliper generates big brake clamping force with six differential bore stainless steel pistons. Stainless steel is used for its high resistance to corrosion and low thermal conductivity that reduces the heat transfer from the pads. The differential bore pattern balances pad loading to help maintain even pad wear. High-temperature bore seals provide long service life and maintain their resilience to provide positive piston retraction on release. Two options for overall piston volume make it simple to match the calipers with master cylinder output and rear caliper size for correct bias proportioning.
        The performance of the W6A is enhanced with SRS bridge plates, snap-ring locked pad retainer pins, recessed two-piece bleed screw assemblies and dampen mounted fluid transfer tubes. SRS bridge plates eliminate all bridge wear caused by pad gouging. The spring-loaded action of the plates also eliminates pad rattle. Snap ring clips lock the pad pins in place to provide positive retention and allow easy service without caliper removal. The bleed screws are recess mounted for protection against impact and debris. The fluid tubes are dampen mounted to protect them from fatigue or damage from vibration or debris. Calipers are anodized in high luster black to protect from corrosion and maintain their high-tech appearance. The W6A is also available with a gloss red finish or other custom Wilwood color by order.
        Radial-mount adapter brackets are used in Wilwood brake kits to provide a secure and precise method of attaching the W6A caliper to the factory mount bosses on the original spindle.
        SRP Drilled Performance Rotor
        SRP Drilled Performance Rotors feature a specially engineered directional cross drill and face slot pattern that improve brake response and pad performance throughout the entire range of light to heavy braking. The venting and cleaning action of the holes and slots will reduce pad glaze and disperse gasses and heat generated during the pad to rotor interface. The holes and slots also inhibit irregular pad compound build-up on the rotor faces resulting in smoother engagement and improved pedal response in all conditions. The material removed also contributes to lower rotating and unsprung suspension weight.
        Along with the excellent performance characteristics of this rotor design, each rotor is treated with a black electro coat to inhibit corrosion on all areas of the rotor. The high tech design, classic style, and aesthetic appeal of the SRP series are the perfect finishing touches to any wheel and tire detail.
        SRP rotors are available in all popular sizes used in Wilwood's Pro Series and Big Brake conversion kits. Kits in these categories designated with the drilled rotor option get the SRP as standard equipment.
        Rotor Hats
        Big Brake - Short Offset
        GT Series Big Brake Short Offset hats are precision machined from premium aluminum alloys for high strength and attention to minimized weight. Hats in this category feature threaded rotor mount holes for use with standard through-hole mount rotors. Threaded hole hats may also be used with T-Nuts or bobbins designed for use with specially machined slotted hole dynamic mount rotors. When used in conjunction with matched Wilwood rotor hardware kits, GT hats provide solid, reliable performance in the most demanding conditions. Short Offset Hats are for narrow space applications with offsets often less than 1.00". They are available for most rotor bolt patterns in a variety of four and five lug wheel patterns.
        Shallow Offset Hats are for narrow space applications with offsets often less than 1.00". They are available for most rotor bolt patterns in a variety of four and five lug wheel patterns.
