Wilwood Narrow-body Superlite Radial Mount CalipersBrakes Spring 2012 Buyers Guide

Wilwood recently introduced its redesigned Forged Narrow-body Superlite Radial six-piston (FNSL6R) and four-piston (FNSL4R) model radial mount calipers. The narrow body Superlite calipers are prominent throughout the Wilwood Brake Kit product line, and well known in the motorsports aftermarket. This newest revision adds strength and durability to the caliper series through the use of superior stress flow forging processes and technology. Stress flow forged calipers add internal strength through improved material grain alignment within the caliper body. The new FNSL calipers have also taken on the style and robust appearance of their bigger brothers in the W6AR and W4AR caliper groups. However, all mounting dimensions and the 7416 type pad applications remain the same as the previous BNSL series calipers.
     The popular FNSL6R and 4R calipers used in most big brake upgrade kits are now available with our signature logo and either black or red gloss powder coat. FNSL6R and 4R calipers will also be available in the new nickel plated “Quick-Silver” series. Custom powder coating is also available on a per order basis.
