Re: 4 pot calipers?

So did you test drive with the new calipers yet? How did they perform?

When I've done projects like this, I've normally done extensive testing before the painting or powder coating stage.

You mean because you're drastically altering the MC/caliper surface area ratios with no engineering ahead of time? Probably a good idea.

Actually I did the math...surface area of the pad and volume of the pistons.
All nearly the same...pad is a tad larger.
And not the first time I've done something like this, I'm certain it will work fine.
