Dual rear calipers on our cambered rear CV drive axle? Don't mind the one caliper with the bleed screw on the bottom. The actual setup will use one left and one right caliper on each side so both bleeds are on top. #driftsetup #cortexftw #64elco @ CorteX Racing ... See MoreSee Less

Customer required a drifting hand brake and the best way to do it is with an independent hydraulic circuit and caliper. You guys must not be keeping up with Formula Drift technology based on the comments here. The standard braking system is compromised if another master cylinder is added to the same circuit. Adding a couple pounds isn't critical for a drift car with a solid axle.

Why not try to reinvent the whole rotor assumbly by possibly making it an electromagnetic brake instead of fluid. Like when the router is spinning, instead of having the caliper grab it, it could force it in the opposite direction of the direction of the car to slow it down. Therefore you'll never have to change your brake pads again

I know you guys know what you are doing, so I am very confused why this is necessary and how the unsprung weight penalty is worth it. Tell us your secrets! :)

Gotta go with Joe on this one, you guys are legends, but between the unsprung weight, added complexity and massive stopping power of modern multipiston setups; I would love to know the advantage

It's for drift cars. Real track cars don't need that.

Awesome...but why?

Used for drift cars

The hub mounts of the GT350R wheels are alloy and very aggressively lightweighted. Add you can see, the barrels of these wheels are ceramic coated to help protect the resin used for the carbon fiber from the brake heat. With the Hoosier 315/30/R18 tires mounted the package weighed in at 46.4 lb.

GT350R featuring a bunch of lightweight parts including a new set of R7 Hoosiers on OEM carbon wheels. We just installed adjustable ARBs with our endlinks and neutralized them. @tonyb_racing will be going hard in NASA TT this weekend at #sonomaraceway ... See MoreSee Less

Avery Martin your ready for some upgrades. 😁

Are those metal flares on the 66?

Is balancing the car with you end links a difficult task? I have been looking at them and gave access to scales but wasn’t sure.

mmmm
