The ULTIMATE in stopping power.
This is a complete "WHOA-BRAKES" Series 3 brake conversion set for the front end of any year Fiat or Bertone X1/9, Lancia Scorpion, Fiat 128, or Yugo. If you want to dramatically improve the braking capability of your street or track car, and improve ease of maintenance to boot, this is the kit for you.
This kit offers maximum braking power for your X1/9, Lancia Scorpion, 128 or Yugo. It is the largest multi-pot caliper body, rotor and pad combination you can fit in a truly "bolt-on" fashion. This kit requires 14" or larger wheels for clearance issues. Key to the performance is the use of bigger 10" vented rotors, included with this kit.
NOTE: When installed, the brake caliper protrudes 23mm past the face of the brake rotor as shown. The wheel hub design and offset is a very important consideration, and you may need to introduce a spacer of up to 20mm between the wheel and the hub to get the correct clearance between the caliper body and your wheel spokes.
As an example, a photo of a wheel with exaggerated hub / spoke clearance, which fits over these brakes with ease, is shown.
OEM Fiat caliper design utilizes a single piston on the inboard side, and requires the capability of the caliper body to freely float inside the caliper bracket in order to exert equal clamping forces on both brake pads. Dry, rusted, damaged or incorrectly installed brake caliper wedges in the OEM design are the main culprit which prevent the caliper from operating properly, leading to clamping forces only being applied to the inside pad!
This WHOA-BRAKES kit uses calipers that mount rigidly to the carrier with an adapter bracket made from billet aluminium. The calipers include four pistons, two on each side of the body, ensuring equal and more forceful clamping pressure on BOTH sides of the rotor every time you apply the pedal, eliminating the floating caliper set-up.
Incredibly simple to install, even easier to maintain! Remove your existing hardware and put these on right in their place with the supplied hardware, without any modifications required to your car.
Need to check the wear or even replace the pads after a few years of driving? No problem, the pads can be viewed and quickly removed from the front-side of the caliper WITHOUT REMOVING THE CALIPER OR THE BRAKE DISC! The brake pads are unique to the Wilwood caliper, but available in several different compounds from a variety of vendors, at affordable prices. If you want an alternate pad compound, just ask!
Kit includes a pair of four-piston one-piece Wilwood calipers with custom billet aluminum caliper brackets designed specifically for the X1/9 - Scorpion - 128 - Yugo carrier, four Wilwood brake pads, two larger-diameter 10" rotors, a pair of braided stainless flexible brake lines, mounting hardware and instructions.
