So after some great track time in 2015, it seems I warped one of my front rotors on my '13 SS. I have the 14" Wilwood rotors on the front, using the BP-20 compound brake pads. I spoke with Wilwood sales rep and he told me the rotors that SAI put on my SS have been discontinued because people are going away from the zinc coated rotors. He gave me the part number for a replaceable rotor. Here are the new part numbers he gave me: Old front: 160-8396 and 160-8397 New front: 160-8398 and 160-8399 Old rear: 160-8400 and 160-8401 New rear: 160-8403 and 160-8403 The new rotors have a more pure type of iron and carbon, and are only slotted NOT drilled. Sales rep says they will build up more heat than the old parts, and will wear out the BP-20 pads more often, but is a better product and will last longer, less likely to warp than the slotted/drilled rotors. I ordered a set of the new front rotors from Summit Racing, cost of $264 each and some new pads, $100 for the front set. I will update the thread once I get them installed and tested out.
So Shelby sells wilwood and baer kits. Question is which is the better option. Wilwood is significantly cheaper but do they provide significant braking over the stock brembos? I dont want to half ass it but at the same time dont want to spend a grip for minimal improvement. Also anyone have experience with a brake cooling kit for the 14 GT500? I have my car undergoing surgery soon for a complete BMR/Koni suspension upgrade and want to knock out the brakes at the same time to eliminate double work. Also putting an exhaust CAI pulley plugs and tune so before i put some go i want more whoa.
Shelby/ Wilwood Front 6-Piston Big Brake Kit When Shelby American wanted to try out some new brakes to use on the production line they were seriously impressed with the Wilwood Big Brake kit. They proved to stop faster, stay cooler, and last longer then anything on the market. We worked with them on making sure our needs were met and Shelby Performance Parts is proud to offer the same brakes that are available on the heavy hitter Shelby Super Snake, the corner carving GT350, and optional on the Shelby GTS. Built with two piece 6 piston calipers they will allow you to brake later giving you every last second of speed while getting around your favorite course. They are available in either red, black, or nickel plated which is used exclusively on the Shelby GT350The rotors are massive directionally veined 14" two piece rotors that are cross drilled and slotted to assist with cooling as well as keep the pads clean. The kit comes with special compound pads that are perfectly matched to the rotors. All mounting hardware is included with the kit as well as brand new ungraded stainless steel braided brake hoses.
