We love classic musclecars. Who doesn’t, right? They packed immense power, timeless styling, and the sound from their high compression engines is just astonishing. However nothing in this world is perfect, and it’s in the braking department that shows where these mighty machines are lacking.
That’s where companies like Wilwood Brakes come in, offering owners of these classic cars the stopping power of a modern braking system. Wilwood just sent over the official release on their new Challenge Series Musclecar Big Brake Kit. You can read all about it below.
Wilwood’s New Challenge Series Muscle Car Big Brake Kits
Wilwood Engineering has released their new Challenge Series big brake kits featuring the latest in disc brake technology starting at $1,343.99! New kits are now available for the popular 1960-70′s GM and Mopar muscle car spindles, as well as the OE Mustang II and Wilwood Mustang II replacement Pro-Spindles. These new Challenge Series kits now provide the most affordable opportunity ever offered for big brake stopping power and Wilwood styling on high performance street and track competition cars.
Challenge Series kits feature newly designed, 12.88″ diameter, one piece carbon iron rotors that mount to the OE spindles with fully detail machined forged billet aluminum hubs. Base model kits include GT series high-precision slotted face rotors to deliver the ultimate durability for high temperature braking at the track. Optional SRP series drilled and slotted black E-coat rotors are available for all kits. SRP rotors deliver custom high-tech styling, optimized pad performance, and the corrosion resistance necessary to keep the brakes looking their best, mile after mile.
Each Challenge Series kit also includes the radial caliper mounting brackets, wheel bearings, hub seals, high strength ½”-20 wheel studs, alignment shims, and all of the premium grade fasteners necessary for a secure and precision installation of the brake kit onto the spindles. DOT approved stainless steel braided flexline kits with a protective outer jacket, are also available separately to complete the plumbing installation on each individual vehicle.
Challenge Series kits are loaded with the same cutting edge technology that have allowed Wilwood to dominate racing and motorsports for nearly four decades. Not only will these kits exceed your braking demands on and off the track, they will deliver uncompromised performance and durability and the personalized big brake style you need for your muscle machine.
