Wilwood Announces New Racing Caliper


Source: Wilwood release

Camarillo, Calif. – Wilwood Engineering has introduced its high-performance D52-R floating caliper built specifically for the motorsports industry.

The D52-R caliper is built using a forged aluminum Type III hard anodize body with a 2.75-inch or 2.38-inch stainless steel piston.

Weighing 4.3 pounds, the D52-R caliper provides a lower deflection rate and high-volumetric efficiency when compared to current heavier cast models.

The caliper fluid inlet port is centered directly behind the piston, eliminating interference with the slide pins. Caliper mounting uses the original GM stock height and offset. Fits common 11.75-inch, or 12.19-inch (up to 12.5-inch) diameter rotors and a choice of .81-inch, 1.00-inch or 1.25-inch rotor width.
