Wilwood Releases Street, Race Kits for Miata

CAMARILLO, Calif. – Wilwood Engineering has launched upgrade brake kits for the 2016-2023 Mazda MX-5 Miata.

The Miata is a fun, lightweight sports car, but the factory brakes left room for improvement. Wilwood’s motorsports-proven Dynapro forged aluminum, four piston radial mount calipers deliver improved stopping power with less deflection and a more consistent pedal feel for the two-seat roadster.

The 11.00 x0.81-inch (280mm x 21mm) GT slotted rotors are machined from proprietary Spec37 iron alloy with 72 internal cooling vanes.

The race-spec kits feature Lug-Drive floating rotors, dynamically mounted to eliminate thermal stresses, and aggressive BP-40 racing brake pads, plus Type-III hard anodized calipers.

Street kits use the same calipers and fixed-mount rotors with street-performance BP-10 brake pads. Street calipers are available with a gloss black or red powder coating, plus 22 additional colors (extra charges apply).

Premium hardware and braided stainless Flexlines included.
