In addition, each SL6 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 full width reinforced rib outboard body for maximum strength when caliper to hub or caliper to wheel clearance is not an issue. These calipers are primarily used for asphalt stock cars, road racing, and other competition applications with small 5 on 5 or other OE type lug patterns. 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.
