Looking for a Vented race rotor/brake kit/parts kingpin 60

Hi, I haven't been on here for a while..... I'm looking for a Vented race rotor or brake kit or parts for a Chevy kingpin 60.

I know there are a few kits out there for solid rotors, and for the 3/4 ton stuff.

I'm looking for a kit like Easy Rick (TTF) had for sale (he no longer sells them).
Like the Spidertrax vented kit they make for the UB.... I guess I'm okay with paying someone to make the bracket as I don't have the time...…. Best case is Spidertrax hat with the vented wildwood rotor and 6 piston calipers. Then I would do the same to the rear with the 4 piston calipers.

This is for a full bodied, full size 73 chevy, on 4dees which will be driven on the SoCal Fwys…

An no to the Torq or similar HD brakes, we want to go lighter.....Its not for a tow truck.

Let me know, I swear there were more kits out there..

Doesn't Sunfire Offroad sell something like that with aluminum hubs?

Also, I think I saw something about Jimmy's 4x4 making a bracket to mount Wilwood calipers and Spidertrax rotors using stock style 60 hubs somewhere.

Thanks Ill hit up the guys at Jimmys. The aluminum hubs are for solid rotors. I think vented is the best for our application. Not sure why nothing is available….

I bet you could retrofit circle track vented rotors and Wilwood calipers onto the Spidertrax hats or Sunfire hubs. Same bolt pattern on the rotors as far I I know, and they would be 1.25" wide & vented. Calipers for the wide rotors should have same mounting pattern as the thin.

I never understood why the U4 crowd and Spidertrax decided to go with thin solid rotors for racing with such heavy overall car weights.

Our circle track cars are 2850 @ race weight and have 4, 14" vented and drilled rotors on them. 6 piston calipers out front and 4 pistons on the rear. Sometimes we will put thin (.825 IRC) scalloped, drilled and vented rear rotors on the car to kill some rotating mass, but only on the faster tracks that require much less brake to get around. Never in a million years would a solid rotor be used on any corner of our cars. Baffled why they use them on 5500+ pound desert missiles that are capable of speeds in to the 125mph zone.

It cant be that much of an acceleration advantage to warrant having shitty brakes....... Can it?

no way with the significant differences in hp combos out there.


https://www.wilwood.com/rotors/rotorlistlanding

have you played with the wilwood rotor designer? many options


might be worth reaching out to https://lugnut4x4.com/ since he is already cutting stacks of dana axle to caliper mounts to see if he could economically change a dimension or two for whatever caliper you end up on?

I saw something on instagram from “innovative machining solutions”...

Looks like he makes hats and caliper mounts for a good selection of later dodge and ford axles...might be a place to call? I have no experience with them other than seeing some shiny parts

Looks like all of their products are for Ford axles.



I have no clue why this is something that people aren't making...…

You can get hats and brackets from Branik and switch out rotors and calipers. I am running their solid 3/8 rotors and 6 piston calipers on my 4500 car. I like the solid rotors as they do not fill up with mud.

Looks like Dave from Trent Fab will be setting me up with everything I need.
Bad to the bone light weight race brakes .81" vented 14" rotors and big 6 piston calipers.

Thanks for everyone's help.

I'll post pictures during assembly

I'm kind of stoked to see what they got going on. I don't really need really big brakes but I wouldn't mind them
