Brief Description
SpeedDirect offers the Shark Bite C6 Z06 brake upgrade kits for '65-'82 and '97-'09 Corvettes. These kits use the aluminum, six-piston Z06 brake caliper from the C6 Corvette, which confers a major increase in braking capacity. Not only is the caliper stiffer than the original cast-iron piece, but its individual "padlets" allow for much improved torque application by evenly distributing the force across the total pad area. Our kits include 13- or 14-inch rotors (standard, drilled, or slotted) that are made in the USA and bolt directly into place.

In road racing, virtually all passing is done during braking. Be confident in your car's braking capability with SpeedDirect's Shark Bite brake-conversion kits. These kits improve braking power, reduce fade, have greater durability than factory brakes, and are perfect for street or road-course applications.

Trademark Features
This is the only kit on the market using factory Corvette calipers with the "Corvette" script on them. Our kits are completely bolt on--no drilling or modifying is required.
