Annoyed with constant brake fade on your Focus ST? The factory brakes on the ST lack the performance needed to back up the powerful EcoBoost under the hood. That’s why you should pick up this Superlite 6-Piston Front Disc Brake Kit with 14″ Drilled and Slotted Rotors from Wilwood designed specifically for your 2013-2018 Focus ST!

– Direct Bolt-on Upgrade
– Increased Brake Capacity and Surface Area

– Enhances Tire and Suspension Upgrades
– Can Be Used with a Stock Master Cylinder

Kit Includes:
– Forged Narrow Superlite 6-Piston Black or Red Powder Coated Calipers (2)
– Caliper Mounting Brackets (2)
– 14″ 2-Piece SRP Drilled & Slotted Rotors (2)
– Big Brake Aluminum Rotor Hats (2)
– Set of Brake Pads
– All Necessary Mounting Hardware

Tech Tip: CJ Pony Parts has confirmed that the Factory 2013-2018 Y Spoke Focus ST wheel will clear this brake kit.

This front disc brake kit from Wilwood includes all of the materials you’ll need to give your Focus ST the ultimate front brake upgrade. This particular kit includes a pair of Red or Black Forged Narrow Superlite 6-Piston Calipers that are comprised of a unique six-piston composition that allows for maximum braking force under the harshest of driving conditions. Paired with the expanded surface area of the larger brake rotors, you can count on cooler temperatures that will help your calipers maintain a long service life and a smaller chance for heat-induced pedal fade.

The significant reason for the Forged Narrow Superlite 6R calipers top-level performance is their durability and dynamic body design. This is the result of computer generated solid modeling and FEA stress analysis technology, along with a forged design. The frame of each caliper is stress-flow forged from premium grade aluminum alloy billets that renovate the internal grain structure of the metal within the shape of the caliper. This removes any stress or interruption to the internal grain structure, proving the best way to manufacture a strong aluminum caliper body.

Included in this kit is a pair of massive SRP Drilled & Slotted Performance 2-Piece Rotors that are 14” in diameter. The directional cross drill and face slot design improves the response of the brakes and pad performance throughout the full range of light-to-heavy braking. The venting and cleaning of the holes & slots will diminish pad glaze along with dispelling hot gasses and heat that is generated from the friction of high-performance track driving. Each rotor is finished with a black electro coat that protects against both rust and corrosion.

The 2-piece 14″ rotors are incorporated with big brake series hats that are specially made from premium aluminum alloys for quality strength and attention to minimized weight. The hats also come with a black e-coat finish to help fight against rust & corrosion.

DOT approved flexline kits are included which are required to adapt these Wilwood calipers to your chassis brake lines.

*This kit only fits 18″ or larger wheels. Check the wheel clearance diagram in the installation instructions before purchase.

Order a Wilwood Superlite 6-Piston Front Disc Brake Kit with 14″ Drilled and Slotted Rotors for your 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 or 2018 Focus ST from CJ Pony Parts today!

FORD FOCUS ST 2013-2016
$2,295
FORD FOCUS ST 2013-2016 Image

The front StopTech Big Brake Kit for the 2013 Ford Focus ST uses a pair of floating directional StopTech AeroRotors measuring 332 X 32 mm, as well as billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines, StopTech’s highly-praised Street Performance brake pads, plus the company’s patented, forged, high performance, four-piston StopTech ST-40 calipers.

This big brake kit represent the ultimate brake system upgrade with stiffer calipers, larger rotors, higher friction pads, stainless steel braided lines and all of the necessary mounting hardware and brackets to complete the job. All StopTech High Performance Brake Kits provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade for stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track.

StopTech Big Brake Kits exceed stock performance in two key areas: First, larger rotors increase heat capacity, allowing a driver to brake harder stop-after-stop with reduced chance of fade. Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance, providing consistent pedal feel and confidence-inspiring responsiveness.

Features and Benefits:

  • Balanced Brake Upgrades with optimum brake bias offer the shortest stopping distance with the best pedal feel.
  • Patented AeroRotors offer the best airflow available for better cooling, less fade and longer rotor and pad life.
  • StopTech provides the stiffest fully-forged aftermarket calipers with patented, removable bridges that provide better clamping under hard braking and less pad taper.
  • StopTech Big Brake Kit components are made in the USA in a 70,000 square foot California manufacturing, engineering, and R&D center.

Stiffer Calipers Offer:

  • Less vibration
  • Less Noise
  • Better pedal feel under extreme braking conditions
  • Faster braking response
  • Less pad taper

Patented AeroRotors and AeroHats that offer up to 80% greater airflow
Benefits of StopTech AeroRotors and AeroHats:

  • Specifically engineered and patented AeroVanes for optimum cooling
  • Optimized to provide even performance and consistent feedback
  • Longer pad and rotor life

Hard Anodized 6061-T6 Billet aluminum Mounting Brackets with Stainless Steel Studs

  • Hard anodized billet aluminum mounting brackets
  • Stainless steel studs secured with set screws forstrength and durability
  • Fully machined aluminum or steel that is precise and strong
  • Application specific design for precise and proper fitment
  • All necessary hardware for easy installation

StopTech Stainless Steel Brake
Line Kits

  • Stainless steel braiding for lower compliance and extra protection
  • Provides quicker response
  • Firmer pedal feel
  • A variety of fittings for hundreds of applications
  • All necessary brackets and fasteners for easy installation
  • Better brake modulation
  • D.O.T. compliant

StopTech Street Performance
Brake Pads

  • Aggressive pad for high performance street driving
  • Para-aramid composites provide linear responseregardless of pad temperature
  • 100% positive molded for uniform friction material density
  • Low dust formulation is rotor friendly and leaves wheels cleaner
  • Scorched to raise initial cold effectiveness and ease bed-in
  • 100% Asbestos-free formulas

StopTech has developed several design innovations to improve rotor airflow. The patented 2-piece AeroRotors push more air thanks to curved, airfoil-shaped vanes and an air channel that widens at the trailing edge of the vanes. StopTech aluminum AeroHats  are lighter, and feature directional stand-offs between the rotor and mounting hat that increase airflow to the (hotter) outside face of the rotor by over 15%.

 

Application-specific hardware that is stronger than most competitors, with studs instead of the more commonly used bolts and hard anodized aluminum billet composition.

Braided stainless steel lines reduce system compliance and improve brake pedal feel and modulation. StopTech’s Stainless Steel Brake Lines are D.O.T. compliant and designed to fit your vehicle.

StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads are included in all Big Brake Kits besides the track-only Trophy Race Big Brake Kits.  StopTech Street Performance Pads are intended for high performance street driving as well as light duty track use.

For track use black is best, red is acceptable. Other caliper colors may experience significant color change due to the extreme temperatures.
