DESCRIPTION

The long-awaited rear Big Brake Kit to compliment our Wilwood front big brakes!

Dynapro 4-piston Radial caliper plus a dedicated MC4 parking brake assembly. High capacity braking from the Dynapro Radial calipers, BP-10 compound pads, and oversized 12.88" rotors are matched to the OE master cylinder output, ABS function, and vehicle bias requirements. Enhanced brake performance, increased durability, and high-tech style compliment big wheel, tire, and suspension upgrades on any car with increased brake requirements.

BRIAN'S APPLICATION COMMENTS: NC needs a balanced front/rear combo for track use! Without balancing the rear the result is serious nose dive. In the early days of NC track use we used custom pedal sets with bias bar and cable adjuster on the dash. That worked okay, but was obviously not easily replicated by customers. So we got together with Wilwood to develop this rear kit. Now you can plug and play a thermally balanced and torque balanced setup. It even retains a dedicated parking brake so your track monster still has daily driving parking brake convenience. This is the EASY BUTTON for track brakes guys!

Brian's Thoughts. I have run all the Big Brake kits. The best dual purpose setup in my opinion for a high powered NC Miata that does track AND autocross AND street is our Wilwood 12.88 front with matching 12.88 rear that you see here. I think the Stoptech kit makes too much noise for street use, thus it would not be my choice for a dual purpose car, we have customers street driving it that don't agree with me on that point. If not going to upgrade rear brakes, and not running big power, then best balance with stock rear is our Budget NC brakes with four piston caliper. This setup was designed in cooperation with the owner of Wilwood when that same owner was racing an NC Miata with 300 hp, the first customer install of this kit with matching 12.88 rear was on our own 300+hp 07 shown below and it has served us well in track events on this beast for over a decade.
