        C5 Wilwood Corvette Rear 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 Rear Big Brake Kit
        Billet Superlite 4R four piston calipers are combined with BP-10 compound pads and 13”-14” rotors in this group of big brake kits for custom high-performance street and show machines. This group of specialized kits for cars, trucks, and SUV’s retain full use of the OE parking brake, master cylinder output, and ABS where used. SL4R rear kits provide complimentary style and performance with 13” and larger front brake upgrades in conjunction with wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades. Optional caliper finishes and rotor designs enable the builder to match style and performance on all applications.
        Calipers
        Billet Narrow Superlite 4
        The Superlite caliper series has set the standard for many years in short track, late model, modified and open wheel competition. It has also enjoyed prominence in a variety of road-race, off-road, rally and sport driving applications. Starting at 4.40 pounds, the Forged Billet Superlite (FSL) is the newest innovation to this series from Wilwood. New and adaptive technologies have been applied providing substantial improvements in strength, fluid volume displacement, and overall performance.
        The Superlite caliper series has set the standard for many years in short track, late model, modified and open wheel competition. It has also enjoyed prominence in a variety of road-race, off-road, rally and sport driving applications. Starting at 4.40 pounds, the Forged Billet Superlite (FSL) is the newest innovation to this series from Wilwood. New and adaptive technologies have been applied providing substantial improvements in strength, fluid volume displacement, and overall performance.
        The FSL body design is a highly efficient product of computer generated solid modeling and stress analysis technology. Each caliper features closed end bridges with a radial transition to the piston body housings. The elimination of machined steps and sharp shoulders in this critical area provides a measurable increase in overall body strength and resistance to deflection under load. Center bridge bolts replace cotter pins to provide additional support and allow quick access with positive brake pad retention. Clamping force, structural deflection, and volume displacement tests have proven the superior strength and efficiency of the FSL. On-track testing has proven driver satisfaction. The bottom line is better stopping power with less pedal travel.
        The superior strength of this innovative new caliper is combined with proven performance features from other Wilwood designs. Each caliper is equipped with Wilwood's replaceable SRS stainless steel bridge plates. SRS plates eliminate the bridge wear caused by pad gouging and extend the service life of the caliper body. The spring-loading action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad rattle and dampens the vibration harmonics that contribute to squeal under braking. Other standard Wilwood features include high-temperature, square faced o-ring seals for positive sealing, controlled piston retraction, and long service life in high heat conditions. Stainless steel pistons are used to resist corrosion and retard heat transfer from the pads. Fluid tubes are vibration dampened to resist stress fractures and reduce damage caused by track debris. Two-piece bleed screw assemblies provide long, reliable service life and are easily replaced if necessary.
        Forged Billet Superlite calipers are a direct replacement for all Wilwood Superlite and similar competitive brand calipers with 3.50" centered mounting tabs. Calipers are available in the popular 1.75", 1.62”, 1.38", 1.25” and 1.12” piston sizes for .81", 1.10" and 1.25" rotor widths. FSL calipers use the same 7420 type bridge bolt brake pad used in all Superlite 6 piston calipers. The full range of PolyMatrix pad compounds is available to match brake response and heat range to any application. 
        Rotors
        GT-72 curved vane rotors are built for the extreme conditions of professional motorsports. The superior heat absorption and dissipation characteristics of these heavy wall directional vane rotors are the keys to preventing heat fade and realizing long service life from the rotors and pads. All rotors are cast from premium grade, long grain carbon iron for long wear, thermal stability, and resistance to distortion. Every GT rotor is fully detail machined to eliminate stress points and unnecessary weight away from the pad sweep face. The faces and O.D. are precision turned to less than .001" for flatness, parallelism, and run-out. An asymmetrical face slot pattern provides smoother engagement through reduced harmonics and improved thermal balance between the I.D. and O.D. of the rotor. Every rotor is then individually dynamic balanced to provide vibration free performance at any speed. These rotors provide the highest cooling capacity and longest service life for extreme braking short tracks and road course competition. 
        Rotor Hats
        Parking Brake Hat - Standard
        These premium grade cast iron hats are used with Wilwood's internal shoe parking brake kits. Each hat is a precision machined, threaded hole design for use in conjunction with through-hole mount rotors. After machining, the hats are electro-coated for corrosion resistance.

        1. 14" Rotor
        2. Kit will require aftermarket wheel spacers of 1/8th" (not included in kit) for rear kit installation with OE wheels.
