Compound Data Sheet
Application:

  • Most dirt track applications including super late models, modifieds, and rear inboard sprints using vented iron rotors.
  • Light to medium duty road racing and track day events.
  • Drag racing with iron or steel rotors.
  • Performance street category competition.
Characteristics:

  • Consistent, linear response through temperature range.
  • Baseline for light to intermediate dirt applications with vented iron rotors.
  • Drag racing with steel rotors.
  • Auto-cross and lighter duty road racing.
Compound Temperature Range & Torque Values
Temperature range and overall friction value are the primary considerations for pad selection. The pads must be capable of maintaining the proper amount of friction for stopping power within the temperatures that will be realized on the track during the event. Then, overall wear rate must be considered. For most asphalt and road race applications, compounds in the high temperature ranges over 1000°F range are usually necessary. Dirt track, drag race, and street performance applications usually operate at temperatures between 500° and 1000°F. Keep in mind that these are general ranges, and not absolute values. Many factors and unforeseen influences can affect brake temperatures. The best indicator for pad selection will always be on track performance. If pad fade (friction loss) due to overheating occurs, then improved cooling, a heavier rotor, or a higher temperature range pad may all become necessary.

D154 Single & Dual Piston Floater Caliper

Wilwood's D154 forged billet caliper is a direct bolt-on, lightweight, high-strength, extreme duty alternative to the OE cast iron calipers that were used on a wide range of factory disc brake equipped mid size GM cars and small trucks beginning in 1978. Use of this caliper can still be found on some GM models as late as the year 2002. The wide spread and affordable availability of D154 calipers and brake pad compounds also made it a popular choice in a number of restricted class competition categories and drum to disc conversions on all types of hot rods and street machines.

D154-R Single Piston Floater Caliper

Wilwood's newest race caliper, the D154-R starts with a forged aluminum black anodized body with stainless steel piston. With a choice of 2.50” or 2.00” pistons and covering rotors from .81” to 1.04” thickness up to 12.19” diameter. Caliper fluid inlet port centered directly behind the piston eliminates any interference with slide pins. Lower deflection rate and higher volumetric efficiency than all the competitions’ heavier cast models, D154-R calipers with a 2.50" piston weighs only 3.3 pounds and use standard metric D154 pads. Caliper mounting uses stock height and offset. View D154-R Single Piston Floater Calipers

GM-Metric Single Piston Floater Caliper

Wilwood’s GM Metric Caliper is a direct replacement for the 1978 and later D154 type GM metric caliper. Weights starting at 2.92 pounds, it provides a substantial weight savings over cast iron OE calipers. Requires use of hardened Wilwood slide pins (sold separately), request part no. 230-0619 (slide pin kit) contains 4 slide pins, enough for two calipers View GM Single Piston Calipers
