Could you please provide part numbers for the rotors and 4-pot calipers? Thanks.

FYI, our price point was determined by finding the cheapest price on each individual component and adding it all up. Unless you're planning on engineering and machining the brackets yourself, it's slightly cheaper and much less hassle to just order the kit from us

It looks like all the R&D has been done and this is a well designed, thoroughly tested set up. Buy the best and cry once.
You guys are awesome.

One tip. Drink a beer during installation because it is easy to the point where, even though it is a brake system upon which your life depends, the onset of inebriation does not increase the risk associated with debilitated installation beyond the gain of the delightful taste of fermentation.

OK, admittedly I did not drink the beer until the job was complete. But indeed it was quite easy to install. Really easy. Paying for the components is the most painful part. And that pain at least in my case cannot be reduced much further beyond that which is experienced here.

Unbolt old ****. Bolt on new ****. Install lines. Bleed. Bleed some more... Keep bleeding. Then you're done.

It really is that easy.

Super f'in easy, even easier than stock brakes, since you can access and see the bolts easily, and you don't have to fight to slide the caliper over the pads, you just slide the pads in once you're finished.

Just returned from the shop trying out new brake duct ideas.
I already have big 3" scoops in the bumper from which I will run 3" ducting that will end near the roll bar end-links as I have no 3" duct plate. In between there will be a 12v marine blower which moves volumes of air so it will cool at speed as well as pit-in.

What do you use to fasten the rotors to the hats? Wilwood-supplied, aircraft grade, or Home Depot special?

Wilwood equivalent. Grade 5, predrilled heads, sourced from a real hardware supplier (i.e. not Home Depot).

I have the stuff to safety wire bolts. But having pre-drilled bolts (drilling is the PIA part) and the hats already wired was a nice time saver.

At work we use only AN hardware on brake hats with AN washers, jet nuts (MS-21042), and loctite, no safety wire. Never seen one get loose in 6 years... it's the only way I'd do it personally.
