Traditionally if you wanted the big stopping power that comes from big brakes, you had to take on the big extra cost of buying some big wheels to fit over those big brakes. Thanks to the team at SSBC, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore. Here at SEMA 2011, they took the time to show us their awesome new V8 monoblock calipers. SSBC’s new calipers are called the “V8” because they use common C5/C6 “Vette” brake pads, and because they have 8 stainless steel pistons. You can get them for both front and rear applications, and best of all they are designed and manufactured right here in the USA.
You don’t have to buy big wheels, because this 8-piston caliper fits inside there on a 12-inch rotor.
SSBC’s V8 calipers have been tested to over three times the operating pressures they will see on your car, so you can be certain that they are extremely durable. So if you are looking for big stopping power for your high powered car, but don’t want the look of huge wheels, SSBC’s new V8 calipers are just the ticket.
