AERO6 calipers were designed for the specific purpose of providing big capacity braking with large diameter rotors for heavy weight and extreme duty Corvettes. It?s the biggest of the big providing big brake performance for show and dual purpose street and track vehicles. Fully compatible with OE master cylinder output and ABS function. Directional staggered vane 15.00" SRP dimpled/slotted rotors provide maximum cooling for sustained high heat durability.

The new Aero6 forged six piston caliper delivers heavy duty stopping power for the road or track. The caliper incorporates race technology into a body design with widespread adaptability. Radial mounting, multiple options for piston volume, and a rotor diameter ranging from 12.88" to 15.00" give this caliper the versatility necessary to suit all types of heavy weight braking requirements. The body of Aero series caliper is stress-flow forged from a premium grade aluminum alloy billet. Stress-flow forging realigns the metal's internal grain structure to flow within the contour of the caliper body. This process eliminates the stresses and interruptions to the internal grain structure that occur when machining a straight block billet. The results are a caliper with superior clamping efficiency and ultimate strength against fatigue, stresses, and distortion under load.

GT Series Big Brake Short Offset rotor hats are precision machined from premium aluminum alloys for high strength and attention to minimized weight. Hats in this category feature threaded rotor mount holes for use with standard through-hole mount rotors. Threaded hole hats may also be used with T-Nuts or bobbins designed for use with specially machined slotted hole dynamic mount rotors. When used in conjunction with matched Wilwood rotor hardware kits, GT hats provide solid, reliable performance in the most demanding conditions.

SRP Drilled Performance Rotors feature a specially engineered directional cross drill and face slot pattern that improve brake response and pad performance throughout the entire range of light to heavy braking. The venting and cleaning action of the holes and slots will reduce pad glaze and disperse gasses and heat generated during the pad to rotor interface. The holes and slots also inhibit irregular pad compound build-up on the rotor faces resulting in smoother engagement and improved pedal response in all conditions. The material removed also contributes to lower rotating and unsprung suspension weight. Along with the excellent performance characteristics of this rotor design, each rotor is treated with a black electro coat to inhibit corrosion on all areas of the rotor. The high tech design, classic style, and aesthetic appeal of the SRP series are the perfect finishing touches to any wheel and tire detail.

Note: Wilwood brake hoses are required for installation of all AERO6 brake calipers on 1997-2013 Corvettes. See Zip # DB-1151 for 1997-2004 Corvettes and DB-1153 for 2005-2013 Corvettes for the stainless brake hoses to complete installation.
