In addition, each SL6R is equipped with SRS bridge plates. SRS plates eliminate all bridge wear caused by pad gouging and extend the service life of the caliper. The spring-loaded action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad rattle and dampens the harmonic vibrations that contribute to pad squeal. Two piece bleed screws and dampened fluid tubes are recess mounted to shield them from track debris and other potential damage sources. High temperature, square faced bore seals provide the largest possible sealing area and controlled piston retraction on release. The full range of Wilwood pad compounds is available to match the brake response and heat range of any competition or sports driving application.
Calipers in this group feature a reduced width outboard body to provide additional clearance between the caliper face and the wheel or hub. These calipers were originally built for use with wide 5 hubs, but have found their way to OE performance "Big Brake" conversions, road racing, and other close fit wheel applications. The caliper bridge radius will clear rotors from 11.75" to 13.00" in overall diameter. Each caliper in this group uses 7420 type 20mm thick pads.
