Do we see a potential benefit to either of these as compared to either the Tarox or Forge kits?
Potential benefits? As in what brake system is better? No idea, someone would have to buy them and compare.

Now the obvious benefits are that Wilwood brakes are made in the US. If you ever need replacement parts they are cheaper and easier to buy.

This is the highest offset dynamic hat I found that would fit. Probably what brzgw is looking at.
170-14869

With this hat you would gain 3.3mm of spoke clearance compared to Chuckable's v1 kit. There is now 5.2mm between the rotor and the dust shield.
It uses a t-bolt mounting system. Sadly there is no other snap ring hats we can use besides the one I included in my v2 kit above.

Without knowing the piston sizes of tarox, hard to tell if they are any better. I would go with Wilwood over tarox. Same for forge.

Biggest benefit is easier time getting spares. Plus the aero 6 is stiffer than any of them.

Good point. I had a Vmaxx kit and getting parts from the Netherlands was extremely cost prohibitive.

Perhaps I should give Wilwood another chance, I didn't have a "bad" experience with them on my Fiesta, they just didn't seem to be made of the best quality to me. (the rotors and pads).

The pads can be purchased from multiple different manufacturers. As to the rotors, I’m not a brake engineer so don’t know how to judge them other than by appearance and longevity. They look well-made to me, but I haven’t had them nearly long enough to judge longevity.

I had a StopTech BBK on my Toyota 86 and thought the hats looked better than the Wilwood, but the rotors were the same perceived quality.

I have completely removed the FSL caliper as an option. Why? It's brake pad is smaller than the OEM pads. Not right spending this much and getting smaller pads.
I am done doing research on the Wilwood catalog. I am saving my previous V2 parts config as the final build.
Personally, I would get the same Aero6 caliper with 17mm pads that @Chuckable got.

That should be a perfect setup. When are you ordering it 😝

@Chuckable would love to get some pictures of your new TS-V wheels on the brakes
Happy to take some, but it doesn’t look much different since they’re just 0.5” wider than the last set. It fills out the fender a bit more but otherwise looks nearly exactly like this, which I’ve posted before:

Ya you are right. Ok how about this. One picture showing the wheel weights perpendicular to the caliper. And the same for the wheel spokes. Thank you in advance

Did you need a spacer to fit the wheels? Looking at doing these and selling the CTS-V brakes. (plus I want a set of ampliforms and I know they wont fit at all with the CTS brakes)
No spacers to fit any of the wheels.

First one is Drag DR-31 +48 18x8
Second one is Ampliform +35 18x8.5.

Ampliforms have lots of space. I could probably fit the 20mm version with a slightly higher offset hat.

I wonder if my brakes will fit then. I'll see this weekend, I have a friend with the ampliforms and he wants to trade for my SuperSpeed wheels.
