Default Re: Powerbrake Big Brake Upgrade Kits from Vorshlag

The largest X-Line "Big Brake" kits offered by Powerbrake use the biggest X6EL 6-piston caliper. These kits are made to work as a front brake upgrade for "larger" and/or faster vehicles like BMW M3s, Corvettes, Mustang/Camaro, and the AWD turbo rally cars.

These kits include rotor discs ranging from 350 - 380mm diameter and 34mm thickness. The X6EL is Powerbrake's top X-Line caliper suited for street, road racing, and even endurance racing applications.

We first used the Powerbrake X6EL caliper and rotor upgrade on this 2013 Mustang GT built for NASA ST2 road racing. Due to the size, weight, and speed potential of this car, Powerbrake recommended the X6EL for front braking needs.

This 350 x 34mm front rotor fit inside these 18x11" Forgestar wheels easily and their largest 380mm diameter rotors will fit under most 18" wheels - check with Vorshlag to get the wheel fit templates for the X6EL kit for your car.

These massive X6EL 6-piston calipers are have the most thermal mass to deal with road racing abuse on heavier cars. We have have track tested the X6EL brakes on this ST2 classed Mustang at NASA race weekends with excellent results.

This 6-piston X6EL caliper uses the FMSI D1116 pad profile, which is shown in the image above at right. Powerbrake offers a number of pad options or you can use a brake pad brand you already know and trust by using this FMSI number or looking at the list of brake pad part numbers in the drawing.
