Wilwood Disc Brakes introduces new Big Brake front and rear upgrade kits for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ

Wilwood Disc Brakes has recently introduced front (P/N 140-12870) and rear (P/N 140-12871) high performance brake kits for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ that features the latest in disc brake technology. These track-tested brake kits not only provides better performance, but also huge improvements over the original brakes on the track where consistency counts.

Big brake clamping power for the front is delivered by Forged Narrow Superlite 6R (FNSL6R) radial mount six piston calipers. FNSL6R calipers incorporate a proven differential piston bore configuration that provides balanced pad loading for even wear and maximized clamping power. For the rear are large Forged Narrow Superlite 4R (FNSL4R) four piston symmetrical bore calipers. The calipers are available with either black or red high-gloss, high-temp, brake fluid resistant sealed powder coat and feature Wilwood’s signature logo. Wilwood’s new Quick-Silver series coated calipers are also available as an option by special order.

Both front and rear brake kits come with 12.88” diameter GT competition series, or SRP drilled and slotted rotors to maximize braking capacity and match style with your wheel size and design. GT rotors are fully detail machined from premium grade carbon iron castings, face slotted, and individually dynamic balanced to provide true and precise running at all speeds. SRP performance rotors feature Wilwood’s signature directional drill and slot design with a protective E-coat finish. The drill and slot pattern adds race-tech styling and the venting qualities that preserve pad performance. The heat resistant E-coat finish protects the rotors from rust on all areas that are not swept clean by the brake pads.

Stopping power 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 and lighter duty use during those fun days at the track. Optional high-temp and race only pad compounds are also available.

All of Wilwood’s performance brake kits are loaded with cutting edge technology built on decades of domination in world motorsports, and proven reliable through Zero PPM defect supply to OEM’s. These kits will not only exceed your braking demands, on and off the track, but also enhance the appearance of your Scion or Subaru.
