The Can-Am X3 factory brakes are definitely an overlooked component when upgrading your machine.  With more horsepower and better suspension comes the need to stop faster.  A common complaint about the Can-Am Maverick X3 brakes is the pedal feel.  This is attributed to the over use of steel braided line and a floating caliper. Without changing any brake line components, the next best upgrade is to improve the actual brake parts.  To offer an enhanced braking experience, Vivid Racing has developed a full front big brake kit with WP Pro Brakes.  WP Pro has been engineering braking components for nearly 25 years.  With popular big brake upgrades for vehicles like the Nissan GT-R, BMW M4, Mini Cooper S and 2 piece performance rotor upgrades for the Jaguar F-Type, Porsche GT3, Mercedes AMG, and more; WP Pro Brakes is on top of their stopping game.  The Can-Am Maverick X3 big brake kit was designed for the weekend warrior and race enthusiast that wants function as well as a beautiful piece of machinery under their wheels.  Development of this kit took nearly 7 months to perfect the best combination of pistons, piston size, rotors, and pad compound.  The brake kit was tested under a variety of conditions to make sure the masses would find the upgrade very useful. 

Each set of 2 piece brake rotors starts out life from a sand casting of steel iron that is then heat treated to 800C.  The rotors feature a V design for the vane which is lighter and dissipates heat faster than a standard square design.  The trademark look of WP Pro is the “Sun Cut” rotor style.  Not only is this lighter than a fully rounded rotor, it also helps with cooling.  What makes it a 2 piece rotor is the stainless steel spring washer attached to the factory hub which provides 35,000-40,000th of play giving you a true floating system.  Each rotor is put on a specialized machine for “skimming’ so the rotors run out is 0.10mm and balanced below 5 grams.

The 2 piece caliper used on the big brake kit is from a block of forged 6061 T6 aluminum.  The S4 caliper used is the smaller caliper that WP Pro makes which has been machined to a 6piston design for optimal clamping force and surface area.  The bolts used to connect the caliper halves are designed to allow it to have some flex so the metal can expand and retract under extreme conditions.  This is less than 40,000th of an inch which is typical for a 2 piece caliper.  The calipers bolt to the Can-Am X3 wheel knuckle with a Ductile Iron bracket which is extremely rigid and strong.  Each set of calipers feature a 6 piston design that includes dust seals.  The 25x25x25 mm pistons includes internal springs to help with pedal pressure, Teflon seals, and are drilled to reduce weight.  The calipers feature an inner and outer bleed screw to allow you to proper bleed each caliper.  A massive spring clip holds the pads in place but can easily be removed to swap out the pads without removing the full caliper.  The final QA process on the calipers is a pressure test to make sure all components are functioning properly.  The 6 piston caliper comes in a variety of powder coated colors that feature the WP Pro logo.

The final part that makes the WP Pro Can-Am X3 big brake kit stop is the brake pads.  We chose to include the WP Pro Green Racing Pads with the kit. We found that the Green brake pads work best for the X3 once warmed up to offer a very strong bite.  Because this is a race pad, at very slow speeds they can be noisy, but will go the distance with a rating up to 600 degrees Celsius.  Like all performance brake components, they need to be bed-in once installed.  This helps mate the pad compound to the rotor surface to prevent any vibration or hot spotting.  The bed-in process is typically done by doing about 5-10 hard braking stops from 50-0 mph without skidding.  Once the pads are warmed up, you will feel the immediate, strong bite they provide.  An alternative Gray Street Pad is available that is good up to 500 degrees Celsius.

If you are looking to upgrade your brakes and want to style up your UTV, than the WP Pro Can-Am X3 brake kit is for you!

WP Pro Brakes has been in business since 1981 with facilities in Canada, Taiwan, and the UK producing high quality OEM and aftermarket braking systems. It does everything from forging, machining, assembly, and even race car testing. This is not just another colored chinese caliper kit, there is engineering behind the WP Pro components. Proving this point is their Race/Track brake systems. The specific calipers share the same body as their beautiful EX6 6piston caliper but with titanium vented pistons, 3D machining on the body, for where looks are secondary, and performance is the main focus. The 6-piston race caliper weighs just 2.6kg and is designed strictly for racing. These WP Pro racing kits were developed for the WTCC and Asia Carrera Cup racing series. Having partnered with the Chevrolet Cruze WTCC teams, their 4 piston calipers are the same design as the EX6 and include anti-knock-back springs, titanium piston covers with stainless steel pistons, and a structural bridge. These calipers were tested against some major companies' calipers and proved stronger and more rigid.

What we are really excited about is its Carbon Ceramic rotor offerings. For years it has been only the OEMs who had the carbon ceramic rotors as a factory options. This option could cost upwards of $30,000 and good luck finding cheap or any replacement parts. The reason carbon ceramic rotors are so highly desired is they are EXTREMELY lightweight and simply do not fade. WP Pro Brakes has a huge application list of Carbon Ceramic rotors for almost every high performance car including Aston Martin, Ferrari, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 996 997 Turbo or GT3, and others. Of course these are not or never will be priced as low as standard steel discs, but are much more affordable and for those looking at serious braking performance or upgrades, this is an amazing option. For some of the Carbon Ceramic kits, WP Pro offers the discs to work with the factory hat, or alternatively will include the hat assembly and pads. Some kits are even a Plus 1 size to give you more rotor surface for better braking. For price comparison, the front 997 Turbo carbon ceramic rotors to work with the OEM 6piston calipers are $7800. That is in the OEM size of 380x35 but they even do a 'Plus 1' kit to a 392x35mm!

Now that we have shown they have the track record to back up their products, we can tell you that WP Pro Brakes also carries an entire line of street/track big brake kits. Every make model you can think of from Audi A4, BMW M3, Mini Cooper, Corvette, Ferrari, Mercedes and the new CLA, Ford Focus ST and Fiesta ST, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mazda, Nissan including GT-R, Range Rover, Porsche, Scion including FR-S, Volkswagen, and more. Each big brake kit includes 2 piece rotors, steel braided brake lines, calipers, pads, lightweight brackets and hardware to install. Where available, a Plus 1 rotor size can be had and some kits are available in 4, 6, and 12 piston calipers. Their EX6 6piston caliper as pictured below features an optional carbon fiber vent duct as well. All replacement parts are available for each kit if needed.
