    pads and rotors for wilwood brakes

    Hi guys,

    just bought Superlite 6R Big Brake kit for the front with 14" rotors and Dynapro Radial Rears,
    just wondering if there is aftermarket pads i can get for these to suit track racing?

    also with the slotted and drilled option, does anyone know if the rotors were hardened before being drilled? worried about stress cracks under harsh braking conditions,

    cheers,
    David

    Some companies cryo treat their rotors to avoid stress cracks from overheating. I think PowerSlot is one of those companies. Check out our sponsors for reference and let us know if you need anything else. As for the brake pad question, you might have to email companies Wilwood directly. Have you contacted Harrop or JHP?

    Wish you would have waited a week or two to buy your big brake kit....this weekend I plan on building a big brake kit with 2011 Camaro rotors (14").....should be around $200-300 for everything with just a fabricated bracket for the caliper

    You can get the pads from Wilwood or Summit

    Ebc makes pads for the wilwoods just have to know model etc and a brake shop should be able to sort it out I would help normally but I'm off on hols for two weeks so not near my ebc book
    As for the rotors wilwood do a few types ask for the black series I think as these are heat treated from memory
