This is a new product for THMotorsports, and we are really happy to bring it you. We found this company in our search for a BBK for our Time Attack Car (www.thmracing.com). As you all know, we are very careful in what we choose, and being suspension guru's, we understand that the most important parts for racing and safety are Suspension, Brakes, and Tires (all equally). We also like to work with a company that manufactures their own product, and is an expert in what they do. WP met all of our needs and after finding out some industry secrets of who they produce for, we were floored and had to get their product. As well, it helped to know that they build in house, and can fix anything in house as well as build full custom. The company sells to Germany, so all products are TUV tested like KW's. That means quality is as high as it can go.
They have a specific application for the NSX. As one member said, they do not need shims or anything else. They are built and tested for the cars. The rotors are light weight and can be obtained in any color. Below, you will see a large selection of rotor sizes, disc sizes, colors, etc etc. that you can choose from. This makes it an ideal solution, as you are not stuck with a pre-made package. Read below, as this is a 100% winner.
Directly from the owner-
"WP Pro started as Winner Speed in 1981, we started as a Tier 2 OEM supplier for
brake components, from calipers to rotors, during this time, we’ve also began developing
aftermarket turbo parts/kits for our Japanese customers. In 1982, we began development
for upgrade aftermarket brake components, such as high performance brake pads, crossdrilled
and/or slotted rotors, in this time frame, Winner Speed began to manufacture
components for mutli-piston calipers and began to use the brand of Winner Power, which
later becomes WP Pro
In 1993, we were contacted by several companies in developing multi-pistons
calipers that will utilize various pistons sizes in order to provide better stopping power, in
1995, our first 6 piston caliper prototypes have finish all various testing, it was in fact, the
first 6 piston calipers in the world that utilize various size pistons in the world, during
testing, we discovered one of the main advantages of such set up other than improved
braking power was the elimination of “abrupt stop” syndrome.
In 1997, our 6 pistons calipers were introduced to the North American market
under HP Racing, it was showcased at SEMA and the Birmingham Auto Show.
In 1999, we began development of the 8 piston calipers which is a break through
product, from the data we collected from the 8 piston calipers, we were able to design the
new 12 piston calipers that we called EVO12, which today is in its 2nd generation
During this time, we’ve began to manufacture for well known tuners through out
the world, in the 2000’s, we began to focus on developing WP Pro brand, our main
objective is the highest quality of big brake kit possible, providing both exclusivity and
individuality, without sacrificing performance and the ability to use the brakes on all
In 2003, we expanded our manufacturing facility and updated all forging process
to 5000 tons cold forged utilizing T6061 material, it is an industry first.
In 2009, we developed the newest caliper line, the L8, it is based on our 8 piston
calipers design that have competed in FIA open wheel racing, with the main objectives of
2/3 of EVO12’s stopping power at ½ of EVO12’s price."
WP used to manufacture all of stop tech in the 90's and early 2000's. So when you guys were running Stop tech, you were running WP. As well, WP now manufactures for some big F1 teams and brands that have 2 letters and racing (I can't say what it is legally). They are a Canadian based manufacturer, so a lot of what we have in the USA is actually WP (not Megan BBK's or other low end brands). This is a chance to purchase factory direct, without getting big on name brands. This industry is fickle, and many manufactures claim they make their own products, yet, they just get them elsewhere. WP is the manufacture in this case, so its easy to see why to go with them, even though they haven't marketed heavily in the United States. As well, all WP brakes meet rigorous TUV standards in Germany. This means top quality, as the TUV does not make any exceptions.
Picture of WP, I mean Hamann
What the kit comes with:
1. WP Rotors left and right
2. SS Brake lines
3. WP Performance pads (based on your driving type, a certain grade of pad will be supplied from street - full race)
4. All Brackets and Hardware(no shims needed)
1. Caliper Color: Choose anything you want, and color matches are available to your car
2. Brake Pads: Since WP Supplies from Street cars to F1 car's, you can choose the type of pads you want for your application
3. Specs: For race based applications, SCCA/NASA and other sanctioned racing organizations have rules based on rotor size/cooling plates/caliper depth etc. If you are building a car for a specific event, WP can easily work around whatever you need to create a custom solution. Unlilke many knockoff big brake kit brands, WP is machined in-house and tested in-house. Big difference!
WP Brakes is a manufacture, and not just a re-seller like many big brake kits you see on the market. WP, as aforementioned builds in-house and is a full manufacturing facility. This means you can have your parts serviced anytime, and each kit comes with a year warranty. This warranty extends beyond that, as the staff is great to work with. This is very important, as many big brake kits sold in the USA under brands XYZ are just re-branded Nissan, or just no-name brand. Seals can leak, pistons can lock up etc. All of these services at any shop cost big money to fix and even more to replace. Knowing that WP can take care of everything in house is huge to you, and to THMotorsports, as these are used on our Redline Time Attack car.
