Big Brake Bulk Buy
#1278884 - 07/14/06 08:33 PM

Vision One Auto Sports is proud to announce our first Ford Contour/Mercury Cougar Bulk Buy for the brand new Wilwood Big Brake Kit. This kit was presented at this years CougarFest in Indianapolis. Per the suggestions of the Cougar Owners (they must like you guys) they suggested opening this opportunity up to the contour community as well!

This kit will include everything needed for installation to get you up and going (or stopping) in as short a time possible!

The kit includes:
(2) Rotors 11.8x.9 Zinc Plated,
your choice of Slotted, Cross drilled, OR both at NO ADDITIONAL FEE

(2) Wilwood Forged Billet Superlight Calipers in Black Powder Coat.

Your Choice of the standard BP10 OR BP20 brake pads (add $20 for the BP20 compound, online information is not available at this time see below for details)

(2) CNC Machined Steel Caliper Mounting Brackets

(2) Nylon Coated, Stainless Steel Brake lines

(1) Bottle of DOT4 Synthetic Brake fluid

(ALL) Necessary fasteners and washers for installation

For this bulk buy the price will start at $900 Dollars SHIPPED, that's up to $400 cheaper than the competition. If we can get 10 buyers our price drops down to $875 or lower!

Whats the difference between the BP10 and BP20 pads?

The BP10 "Smart Pad" is a medium friction compound suited for street and strip use or light track days. It has very consistent torque characteristics throughout a wide temperature range but retains low noise and dusting for every day use. Best option for street cars that may occasionally auto cross, but are not serious track cars.

The new BP20 is more aggressive than the BP10, expect more noise, dusting, and somewhat shorter life. The benefit is better braking when up to temperatures and an increased ability to resist overheating at higher temperatures, while sacrificing some cold temperature bite. This pad is at its best between 500*F and 1000*F This is a great option for the weekend racer, but civil enough to drive to and from the track on.

Payments will accepted through Pay Pal or Via Money Order. Pay Pal users add %3 for paypal fees. We will run this bulk buy for 30 days. We will begin accepting payments in 2 weeks.

Feel free to post any questions after reading the development thread found here: http://www.newcougar.org/forums/showthread.php?t=95562

Here are pictures of the prototype on Dan's (nadthomas) at Cougar Fest. Keep in mind this is the prototype kit and yours will come with zinc plated rotors in your choice of slotted, drilled, or both.

How come nobody has anything to say about this? I'm not in a financial position to get these, but I am curious at to the lack of responses.

This isn't a bad price at all for what you are offering, but let's at least be fair in what you compare to the competition. The competition's kit, at $400 more includes 13" (or 12.2" at the same price if you prefer) 2-piece rotors with aluminum hats plus hardware. This MORE than covers the difference in price over the Focus SVT rotors that come with this kit. There is certainly a market for both kits, but let's be fair in advertising.

Balance is the Key.

Hey, guys a just wanted to pop in over hear to say how much I love this kit. I know my word isn't worth much over here since I don't post often, but I just wanted to let you all know anyways, becuase this kit is awesome, and it was a joy working with VOA.

If you read the development thread over on newcougar, I believe my initial assestment of the kit was a little to mild. I didn't realize how much better these things grip, and stopped the car untill I had to go back to driving my other cougar with a stock brake setup. OMG, night and day difference. Since we ran short on time when we installed the kit, I'm going to try and get some actual numbers between my two cougars. I know its not a perfect compairison, but its the best I can do for yall.

This sounds pretty much like the same kit BATinc sells (12" rotor + 4 piston wilwood). Theirs is listed at $695, but unless something has changed... they're out of stock and cannot find replacements for some components. This kit (VisionOneAutosports) does sound like a good replacement for the mid-cost performance range.

By mid-cost... I'm referring to Focus SVT=low cost; Baer/TCE=high cost.

I was just scrolling through the Bat catalog last night and noticed their kit as well. I can't comment on weither they actualy have them available or not, but their 300mm rotor is just a blank. Its not cross drilled or slotted, and its not zinc plated. Additionaly only the 278mm rotor will fit under stock 16's without a spacer. The VOA kit does not require a spacer w/ stock 16's. Well I should say atleast on a cougar rim. I can't say w/ 100% certainty, because clearance is very close and I don't believe the kit has been fitted with a contour wheel.

I had E1 wheels on my cougar for a short time, so if I have time I will try to swing by the NECO member I sold them, but that won't happen until after I get back from vaction.
