The V8R MX5 NC C43 Trophy kit was designed to meet the performance and price point criteria for the weekend warrior track rat, while providing the refined street performance expected at this price point.
Featuring Stoptech C43 caliper with the patented bolt-in bridge for greater stiffness, calculated piston volumes to work with OE master cylinder to retain balance, and ultra-light at 4.3lbs the C43 weighs exactly HALF the ST40, with an 11% increase in pad volume.
Mounted over 309x32mm bi-slot Pillar Vane rotors and V8R custom floating hats. Included anti-rattle hardware significantly reduced pad knock and keeps brake noise to a minimum. This is a motorsports-level brake solution with enough civility to use on a daily-driven car! Floating rotor installation guide.
Our kits are sold without pads to allow the end-user to select the pad type that best suits their needs. We offer a handful of pad options and would be happy to provide insight into what pads would work best for your needs.
This kit uses the DR21/Wilwood 7420 pad shape. That means there are already a huge amount of pads for this kit. If you require assistance selecting a pad for your kit, please do not hesitate to contact us.
This brake kit will be offered with rotor hats finished in either electroless nickel (silver) finish, or type-III hard-coat black anodized. Both finishes have been proven on track cars, and are extremely resistant to fade.
This kit has been confirmed to work with the following wheel options with no spacers
- Konig Dekagram 17×9
- 949 Racing 6UL 17×9
Check the wheel fitment templates below. Proper wheel clearance is the responsibility of the end-user.
All V8R parts are CAD designed and FEA tested and machined with today’s latest CNC equipment. This kit has been tested extensively in the harshest conditions, both on the street and at the race track.
Like any kit destined to be used for years on the track, the ready supply of spare parts is incredibly important when considering whether or not to buy an aftermarket braking system for your NC. We took this into consideration when designing this kit, and as such are able to keep the price of consumables lower than almost any other brake kit on the market today. Rotor rings, brake pads, and hardware are all readily available through us, as well as many online vendors. Because this caliper uses a pad shape that has been in production for over two decades, along with a rotor size and bolt pattern shared with many off-the-shelf brake solutions, parts will always be affordable and readily available.
