The DynaPro Single Lightweight (DPS-LW) billet caliper is the newest generation of calipers available as an upgrade or replacement for applications previously using the Dynalite Single (DLS) series. DPS-LW calipers combine superior strength with performance enhancements to make these the best "Dyna" series calipers ever. Lightweight design insures sufficient clearance in tight situations like Sprint Car front ends.
Calipers are fully CNC machined from premium grade alloy billet. The FEA generated body design incorporates a fortified transition between the piston housings and the bridges. Strengthening this critical area has substantially increased its resistance to deflection and body separation under load. Reductions in overall deflection, and the subsequent decreases in fluid volume displacement, translate to increased clamping efficiency with less pedal travel.
The DPS-LW is loaded with exclusive Wilwood performance enhancements. The calipers feature Quick-E-Clip pad retainers that support a 6812 type brake pad from the top. In addition to fast pad service without caliper removal, this feature provides substantially stronger retention over the single Quick-Clip pin and 7012 type pads used in the previous DLS models.
The DPS-LW uses heavy wall stainless steel pistons to resist corrosion and slow the heat transfer from the pads. The heavy wall sectional thickness improves pedal firmness and adds to the overall clamping efficiency by eliminating piston backside deflection. Available in Black Anodize or Nickel finishes. Calipers are fitted with replaceable stainless steel SRS bridge plates. SRS plates eliminate bridge wear caused by pad gouging. The spring-loading action of the SRS plates eliminates pad rattle and dampens the vibration harmonics that contribute to squeal during engagement. The package is completed with internal fluid passages and four corner bleed screws that allow mounting in any front, rear, left, or right side position.
About Wilwood Engineering
Wilwood Engineering designs and manufactures high-performance disc brake systems. Since the company’s inception in 1977 by Bill Wood, we have developed a substantial matrix of brake components and engineering techniques that allow us to quickly and reliably create brake systems for almost any application. Our core ability is the rapid development of custom engineered brake systems using a combination of off-the-shelf and custom components. In addition to designing and manufacturing brakes for all types of competitive motor sports, Wilwood also manufactures brake systems and components for agricultural equipment, industrial applications, utility vehicles, snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and military vehicles.
With headquarters in Camarillo, California, Wilwood employs approximately 250 people. We have on-shelf stock of more than 300 different brake calipers, 200 rotor designs, 100 master cylinder designs and a wide assortment of brackets, fittings, valves and brake lines. Our off-shelf brake calipers range in size from tiny calipers used on go-carts and light duty industrial equipment, to heavy duty original equipment brakes for the U.S. military Humvee.
Wilwood's engineering department uses the latest computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques in conjunction with finite element analysis, dynamic test and cycle test equipment, to find high-performance and reliability solutions for the most difficult braking tasks. Our extensive inventory of proprietary on-the-shelf components allow us to provide cost-effective solutions for unique brake applications.
Wilwood is ISO 9000 compliant and has extensive experience maintaining quality levels of 100ppm or less for original equipment manufacturers.
