Camarillo, CA (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
Wilwood Engineering has just released a new Dynalite Pro Series disc brake upgrade kit for the 4 lug, six cylinder (will not fit V8, 5 Lug) first generation Mustang. Dynalite Pro Series brake kits provide an easy bolt-on performance upgrade for Mustang’s from the stock drum brakes while still being able to fit inside 14” factory steel wheels. Dynalite kits deliver positive disc brake stopping power and big brake styling for the street, with top end performance and durability for the track.
High strength clamping force and positive stopping power are the trademark of the Wilwood forged billet alloy Dynalite series 4 piston calipers. Four stainless steel pistons provide fully balanced pad loading, along with the corrosion resistance and thermal retardant qualities of the stainless alloy that will keep your calipers cooler and running trouble free for many more miles. Kits include either black anodized (kit p/n 140-12535) or gloss red sealed powder coat calipers (kit p/n 140-12535-R).
Friction is provided by BP-10 compound Wilwood “Smart pads.” BP-10 is a unique metallic composite formula that provides quiet engagement and low dusting, but with the added temperature range and higher friction values of a semi-metallic compound pad. BP-10 runs clean and quiet on the street, with improved stopping power and fade resistance for tough roads or those fun days at the track. Optional race only pad compounds are also available.
The Pro Series kits come with 10.75” diameter ULHP smooth face iron rotors to maximize braking capacity. ULHP rotors are smooth face machined from premium grade carbon iron castings to provide true and precise running for the street, or any race sanctioning body that does not allow drilling and/or slotting on iron cast rotors. This kit will fit some 14” wheels, please check the wheel clearance chart with the installation instructions to determine your wheel fitment capabilities.
Pro Series kits for these Mustang’s include forged and fully machined billet alloy hubs, with 1/2-20 grade 8 wheel studs, which mount to the OE spindle using tapered roller bearings and races. Every hub is “factory offset” designed to minimize hub track width change and reduce any possibility of tire to fender interference when changing from stock brakes. In addition to their strength, the forged billet hubs provide a substantial weight savings over their steel and iron counterparts.
To complete the installation, precision machined and application specific brackets come along with premium grade hardware and alignment shims for a secure and accurate installation. DOT approved flexline kits, required to adapt Wilwood calipers to your chassis plumbing, are available separately.
