Wilwood Disc Brakes Introduces New Titanium Rotor Inboard Sprint Kit
Wilwood Disc Brakes has just released a new Billet Narrow Dynalite Inboard Sprint Kit (PN 140-12764) with a Ben Cook Titanium rotor. This is a fully engineered direct bolt-on brake system for installation to standard inboard Sprint sidebell with 3.50-inch mount centers and 3.00-inch x 46-spline axle.
Built for no-holds-barred competition, the compact and lightweight radial mount caliper (2.70 pounds) is designed with internal fluid passages to eliminate external crossover tubes to provide extra protection from track-born debris. The Dynalite caliper generates clamping force with four stainless pistons and exhibits deflection-free pedal response from a highly rigid body design.
The 12.00-inch diameter x 0.36-inch thick slotted rotor is produced using a special alloy and a proprietary manufacturing process, which yields a high resistance to thermal distortion with excellent friction and wear characteristics against the pads. The newly designed axle clamp maintains a fixed position, but allows the rotor to float utilizing Wilwood's exclusive T-nut mounting system to eliminate stress and distortion from heat expansion.

AFCO Precision Spindles
AFCO recently announced the release of its new Precision Pinto spindle program. Answering the call from the market, AFCO has designed and engineered a precise, dimension-perfect spindle for both chassis builders and racers alike. This program will allow racers to comfortably know that when they build a car, or repair one from a crash, their front-end geometry will not vary due to spindle geometry variance from vendor. Consider the advantage of knowing that all the hard work of roll center plotting, bumpsteer adjustments, and final tweaking isn't lost from a crash.
AFCO offers two programs. First, precision spindles will be available machined to exact factory tolerance on the shelf. Secondly, custom spindle profiles will be available, built to chassis builder's specifications. Once you have your car steering how you need it, make sure you can duplicate that performance, night after night, after the rubbing and grinding that occurs, and after front-end components get tweaked. Call 800/632-2320 or visit www.afcoracing.com for all the info.
