Default Cheap wilwood dynalite pads?????????

The king of cheap here is having trouble finding "economical" pads for my wilwood calipers.

i've found PFC 80 pads for $34 I'd like to find a cross to some application so i could get lifetime pads at Autozone.

One Great Britain ebay seller advertised dynalite pads as also being Escort pads???

no one knows where to buy fuel pump brackets either

try to check if the DLs use the same pad conf. as those old bendix calipers used on most old volvos and fords, maybe it's true.

I bet they stop better than a Wilwood Dynalite .....There is an Alcon or Brembo caliper as used on the Weaver tube frame Trans-Am cars that is $2200 each.....

I guess some think the dynalites are too small for the front of a vette but they are working well enough to stop the turtle. If i ever put more engine in I might need to upgrade but for now i haven't been able to make them fade.

Nice change from getting a mushy and long pedal with stock calipers after 10 minutes of track time.

The only place i was gaining on faster cars at Mosport was the braking zone before turn 5 before the Mario straight. Its sort of a bowl putting serious downforce on the car allowing some real agressive braking.

The big downside is the pad area is much smaller than stock requiring more frequent pad changes.

about 3 track days and 6 months of normal driving.

i guess that would be about 4 track days or 1 - 2 years normal driving.

Just curious what kind of lap times do you turn at Mosport with the vette?

I run 1:40 flat @ 90% with my scooter the fast guys on bikes are are running in the mid 1:20's

Turn 1

Turn 2

I don't have a timer. Turn one is a high speed sweeper. A dude in my club went straight on into the inside wall. Turn 2 is an off camber double apex. A bunch of fun. This track is my favorite so far.

Right before turn 5 is where i was gaining on the newer vettes, miatas and pretty much everyone else.

Turtle,

I found this on the willwood website:

http://brakepads.wilwood.com/04-race/wilwood.html

or if you want to interchange:

http://brakepads.wilwood.com/07-interchanges/index.html

Would be easy if we had an FMSI # which may be stamped on the backing plate of the pad.

went ahead and got some gator (bp10 smart pads) from jegs for 41.95 because of free shipping. I needed to have some spares for this weekend.

Does the dynalite use a square o-ring or round? What kit should i order?

Here's a link to a pdf that has all the part numbers for the caliper

This is the the front calipers
http://www.wilwood.com/PDF/fl99.pdf

this is the rear calipers

the Narrow Dynalite is totally different from the dynalite.

You show dynalites for the rear.

The gator brake pad is shown as 150 - 2391K.

The gator pads i bought are 150-8850K.

The dimensions are exactly the same.

There are so many variations of calipers it gets really confusing.
