This is a complete "Whoa! Brakes" brake conversion set for the front end of any year Fiat or Bertone X1/9, Lancia Scorpion, Fiat 128, or Yugo.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in purchasing this kit for a 128-series car, be aware that brake hose lengths vary significantly between different models (Sedan/Wagon, SL/3P, etc.). Brake hose length is also affected if the car is lowered. Please call us at 1-800-241-1446 to ensure we provide the correct length brake lines.
WHOA! Brakes are the only performance brake solution for Fiat / Lancia cars guaranteed to work with any 13" or larger wheel.
If you want to improve the braking capability of your car, and improve ease of maintenance to boot, this is the kit for you.
They are the most effective and versatile brake upgrade that utilize affordable stock 9" brake rotors.
Further, if you ever desire to upgrade to larger 10" rotors, an affordable extension kit is available separately.
This WHOA! Brakes kit uses calipers that mount rigidly to the carrier, and include four pistons, two on each side of the caliper.
This ensures equal and more forceful clamping pressure on BOTH sides of the rotor every time you apply the pedal, eliminating the floating caliper set-up.
OEM Fiat caliper design utilizes a single piston on the inboard side, and requires the capability of the caliper body to freely float inside the caliper bracket in order to exert equal clamping forces on both brake pads. Dry, rusted, damaged or incorrectly installed brake caliper wedges in the OEM design prevent the caliper from operating properly, leading to clamping forces only being applied to the inside pad!
Incredibly simple to install, even easier to maintain!
Remove your existing hardware and put these on right in their place with the supplied hardware, without any modifications required to your car. Need to check the wear or even replace the pads after a few years of driving? No problem, the pads can be viewed and quickly removed from the front-side of the caliper WITHOUT REMOVING THE CALIPER OR THE BRAKE DISC!
All WHOA! Brakes kits now come standard with Wilwood Polymatrix Q ceramic pads.
Brake pads are unique to the Wilwood caliper, but available in several different compounds from a variety of vendors, at affordable prices.
Kit includes a pair of lightweight, low-profile, four-piston Wilwood calipers with custom billet aluminum caliper brackets designed specifically for the X1/9 - Scorpion - 128 - Yugo carrier, four agressive ceramic-compound Wilwood street brake pads, braided stainless flexible brake lines, spacer plates, mounting hardware and instructions.
