Are Carbotech pads are available for it? What other pads?

They use the same rotors, right?

How much more do the Dynapros weigh?
Yes.
Yes.
Dunno.
Yes.
~ 1.5# each. I'll double check that when I get into the shop tomorrow.

Driving like a man requires less braking.


Seriously though, I wish I had some extra cash right now. :(

Are the prefixes of the Dynalite part numbers the color?

e.g. HW-120-6806 vs. LU-120-6806.

Where are you finding these part numbers? Color codes are indicated as a suffix to the part number.

Color codes are a suffix. 120-6806RD is their red powdercoat caliper, for instance.

I'm guessing Wilwood uses it internally (factory identification or batch identification). The caliper I have sitting in front of me has a prefix of LW.

No way. The radial mount DynaPros weigh 1673g (3.690#) on my scale.

4 or 6 pot? Also not sure of the difference in weight between the radial and lug-mounted calipers - all our stuff is lug-mounted.

Sav,

4-pot radial mounts. The six are about 6 pounds.

Guess Wilwood makes 'em about a pound per pot.

The PowerLite 4-pots, however, are only 2.2 pounds!

Interesting, so the Dynalights are about half the weight.

I can hand deliver my half-used spare set to Laguna Seca tomorrow for $60.

When I was having a problem getting a set I placed an order at another site - they ended up being a little more expensive and were drop shipped from Carbotech, too, so they didn't show up any earlier than the ones ordered from 949. 949 might even have a set in stock right now.

Not really. I think you are asking about the 4-piston DynaPro calipers and Emilio is talking about the 6-piston DynaPro.

To be clear on the weights:

The DynaLite-4 and DynaPro-4 are about 4 pounds each. The weights of all of the 4-piston DynaLite and DynaPro calipers are within a few ounces of one another. The lightest of the 4-pistons is the DynaPro radial mount, which is 3.6 pounds, but would require a completely different (and heavier) mount.

The DynaPro-6 (six piston) is about 6 pounds.

Savington's kit is reasonably priced and will get the job done. Personally, I would spend a few extra dollars and go with the DynaPro 4-piston (which Savington said is an option), but there is nothing "wrong" with the DynaLite, it is a proven caliper. The DynaPro is basically DynaLite version 2.0.

If you want a caliper with dust boots though, you have to go with the radial mount DynaPro, but that is a totally different discussion.

How much for another set of calipers, street pads,and brake lines?

I'm thinking about fabbing up a set of brackets for the back end. I can send a second set your way to duplicate if you hook me up on pricing
