Wilwoods are Here!

My Wilwoods have finally made it to Bolehland. Picture of the package.

Slow striptease. Package opened to reveal contents.

The mounting brackets. These are CNC machined.The SL6R caliper is radial mount unlike the more conventional lug mount Wilwood Dynalite and Superlite. Radial mounting results in a stiffer caliper.

Box for the pads. "7416" is the pad shape/configuration. The 7416 pad is same as 7420 pad except thickness is 16mm as opposed to 20mm.

Stainless steel braided brake lines.

And here comes the big parts. Calipers + Rotors. If you need to ask these are for my front brakes only. Rears will make do with DBA 4000 series rotors and Stoptech 309 compound pads.

The rotors. These have a diameter of 310mm (12.2"). There are 6 slots per rotor. No cross-drilling as these will crack when subjected to track day torture. The centre bells are aluminium alloy which will really lessen the mass when compared to a one piece rotor. Downside is higher cost.

As mentioned previously the thickness is 28mm or 1.1"

The SL6R caliper or Billet Narrow Superlite 6R Radial Mount Caliper to give it it's full name. Each caliper is CNC machined from a piece of forged aluminium alloy. Piston sizes are 1.62", 1.12" and 1.12". There is no rubber seal as these will only melt when subjected to consistent and intense heat energy generated under heavy usage. Calipers are also available in red but again @ extra cost.

I would like to thank Bro Mugil for all the help rendered. Wouldn't have been able to do this without all the assistance rendered. Thanks Bro! Owe You One! Now please excuse me while I go find some quick relief..

Mugil said...

firdaus,

i have a bride which is fully covered in alcantara sitting in my store room. Not sure on which car to install. Thinking maybe in the mini, but sad to remove the classic cobra seats in them....but alcantara is lovely for sure!!!

Andrew Saw said...

Bros,

I always have the impression alcantara is a pretty absorbent material? Am kinda concerned going to alcantara as I'm pretty sweaty.
