Nick,
Never used Wilwoods but our world challenge cars use the Stop Tech BBK's.

one thing you really want to look at are the seals in the caliper. Make sure they are in good condtion. You might see stress cracks on the rotors but that should be fine. Pads are always replaceable so that shouldn't be an issue.

Even though everything still looks good it is still "iffy"

If I remember right, some wilwood calipers don't have dust seals. Which isn't a problem if you're rebuilding after every race. But for a street car, that would be a problem.

only the newest willwoods have the dust seals for street cars. Othwise they will need to be rebuild like every 10k from what ive heard

my vote is for wilwood... plainly because they are more affordable, have a longer history in the aftermarket scene, and essentially i just like the ergonomics of the calipers and rotors.

^^^I think you need to take a closer look at Stoptecs.

And I'm genuinely curious as to how a caliper and rotor design can have better ergonomics than another?
