CAMARILLO, Calif. — Wilwood Engineering has announced a rear big brake kit for the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette that includes an electric parking brake (EPB) caliper with wiring harness for seamless integration to onboard systems.
The new AERO4 rear kit with Lug-Drive™ dynamic mount floating rotor complements the recently released Wilwood front big brake SX6R Lug-Drive C8 kits, both providing improved brake torque and increased thermal capacity.
Front and rear kits feature proprietary 15-inch diameter Spec37 Lug-Drive dynamically mounted rotors to isolate thermally induced stress between hat and rotor materials, ensuring longer life with better performance.
Rear kit rotors are 1.4-inch larger than the base model, 1.2-inch larger than the Z51, slightly larger than the Z06, and the same diameter as the Wilwood front C8 kit. Choose between GT slotted or SRP drilled and slotted with 72 curved vanes for efficient cooling.
Differential-bored, stress-flow forged aluminum AERO4 four piston calipers have reinforced ends and a central bridge that virtually eliminates deflection. When cued by the original-equipment parking-brake switch, the included EPB caliper clamps with a minimum force of 2,400 pounds with no power draw once set.
Calipers are available in gloss red or black powder coat and 22 optional colors (additional charges apply).
