Let’s begin by saying that disc brakes are most frequently considered to be paramount to drum brakes and there are a multitude of reasons for that and knowing these can aid you in your decision making process.

About Wilwood

You have come to this stop on the LMPERFORMANCE web site because you are in the market for new brakes and we are here to help you decide on those brakes. Let’s begin by saying that disc brakes are most frequently considered to be paramount to drum brakes and there are a multitude of reasons for that and knowing these can aid you in your decision making process.

Let’s start by examining one of the most important aspects of the disc brake system if not the most important and that is the increased safety resulting from the fact that the disc brake system has better stopping power than the drum brake system. When the brake pad grabs the rotor, it creates friction, which creates heat but if the brake rotor is slippery it becomes difficult for the brake pads to grab. However, the configuration of the disc brake system is such that it has holes drilled on the brake rotor making it easier for heat, gas and water to dissipate and be quickly moved away from the rotor surface thus providing better performance.

A brake rotor that is wet becomes slippery and consequently this makes it difficult for the brake pads to grab. However, disc brakes provide optimum performance in wet weather because they do not collect water on the brake disc the way drum brakes do.

Another big advantage of disc brakes is their ability to generate and transfer greater amounts of heat to the atmosphere resulting from the fact that the friction area of a rotor is exposed to air thus cooling is more expeditious than it is on a drum brake.

The disc brake system’s ability to be examined without removing the wheel results in a savings of both time and money and disc brakes are completely self=adjusting. And under excessive usage, such as repeated hard stops or riding the brakes down a long incline disc brakes take longer to lose their effectiveness.

Now let’s take a look at the company manufacturing the disc brakes and one worth your consideration is one that has been in the business of designing and manufacturing high performance disc brake systems since 1977, WILWOOD ENGINEERING. Having been in the disc brake business for this extensive period of time has afforded WILWOOD the opportunity to develop a substantial matrix of brake components and engineering techniques. The company has the capacity to create custom engineered brake systems by utilizing a combination of off-the-shelf and custom components. They have expertise in the designing and manufacturing of brake systems for all types of motorsports as well as a multiplicity of other applications.

WILWOOD is able to accomplish all of this because they have on-shelf stock of more than 300 different brake calipers, 200 rotor designs, 100 master cylinder designs and a wide assortment of brackets, fittings, valves and brake lines. In addition WILWOOD engineers use state-of-the-art computer aided design and manufacturing techniques nd finite element analysis, dynamic test and cycle test equipment, to find high-performance and reliability solutions for the most difficult braking tasks. WILWOOD’s extensive inventory of proprietary on-the-shelf components affords them the opportunity of providing the customer with cost-effective solutions for unique brake applications.

An American company with headquarters in Camarillo, California, WILWOOD ENGINEERING is a company you can trust for your brake needs all proven by their long history of success and the fact that WILWOOD is ISO 9000 compliant and has extensive experience maintaining quality levels of 100 ppm or less for original equipment manufacturers.
