DetailsThis popular 4 pot kit uses the Group 1 Escort/Capri 2.8i vented disc (standard diameter but vented to allow for extra cooling) and uses a fully dust sealed caliper. Included in the kit:
- Wilwood forged Midilite caliper x 2
- Caliper mounting bracket x 2
- Vented brake disc x 2
- Hardware kit
Note: brake pads are not included. Please see further below for the range of brake pad options for this kit.
Also note that brake hoses are also not included. The calipers have an M10x1 male outlet from the rear centre. Whilst many customers choose to make their own solutions (e.g. a new solid kunifer pipe), we can supply brake pipes to suit (see further below).
Wilwood 4 Pot Forged Midilite Caliper: This four piston radial mount is of a new generation of Wilwood aluminium calipers produced from a drop-forged billet. This forging process produces a body design that provides higher strength and reduced load deflection superior to any cast or machined billet caliper. Combine this with substantial x-bolting and extended flank design, it is one of the stiffest radial mount calipers available.
Most multi-piston calipers suffer from low speed caliper squeal caused by pad torsional vibration. The Midilite caliper features the unique Wilwood SRS (Squeal Reduction System) incorporating stainless steel pad retainers. These retainers eliminate the bridge wear caused by pad gouging and reduce the pad rattle/vibration harmonics which are the primary cause of the annoying '4-pot squeal'. The clever quick change pad clip also allows ultra fast pad changes without hassle.
The caliper incorporates thick wall hard anodised pistons, is fully dust sealed and is supported by a range of brake pad compounds for road, rally and race applications.
