4 Piston x 4 Pad
Drift Rear Caliper Kit
Rear caliper kit for drifting that controls the foot and parking brakes with one caliper. The body of the Slim Forged Sports Caliper (4 Pistons x 4 Pads) has been improved for rear vehicle use. This product is a specialised brake caliper kit for drifting. The two opposing pistons on one end operate the foot brakes, and the two opposing pistons on the other end control the hydraulic parking brake. With regular in-drum parking brakes there are limited choices for friction materials, and there are brake shoe durability problems resulting from the severe conditions created by drifting. With the handbrake cable, troubles such as wire stretching also occur after frequent use. By changing to this new braking system, such problems can be avoided.
Colour options shown above are made to order. Please contact us for all enquiries and pricing.
In addition, the friction materials for the foot and parking brakes can be changed to different materials, enabling the creation of a braking system that is more responsive to the driver. Repeated road testing has been carried out in Japan since 2006, and the product has earned high praise from top drift drivers in Japan, USA and Australia.
Caliper dimensions length: 220.0mm, width: 120.5mm, height: 61.2mm
332mm x 28mm 2 Piece Rotors
Kit includes caliper body, aluminium bracket, brake pad, 2 piece rotor, teflon brake line, pad support spring and complete set of bolts.
* 1 When installing this system, the genuine side brake (in-drum type) is removed, so it will not function.
* 2 This product does not include hand lever, master cylinder or hydraulic brake line (between the master cylinder and the caliper).
* 3 This product is a brake system exclusively for drift competition. Please not that it cannot be used on public roads.
The design and quality of the piston pressure seals is very important for both brake performance and your safety. Project-Mu calipers have a dual seal arrangement with a dust wiper seal before the pressure seal to prevent any foreign material entering the pressure system.
Differential Bore Design
For calipers using large area pads, it is important to have differing sized pistons to ensure even more force is applied along the pad. This in turn prevents the pads from wearing unevenly which can result in a long brake pedal. Special care is taken when designing Project-Mu caliper piston sizes for this reason.
Project-Mu racing calipers are designed to provide maximum performance in all situations. These are produced from high grade billet aluminium which is the method employed by all leading racing brake manufacturers around the world. The only downside to this method is the high costs involved due to the manufacturing process. Therefore Project-Mu have introduced a new range of calipers to compliment billet racing called ‘Forged Sports’. The manufacturing process (same as forged alloy wheels) involves less time, resulting in lower costs. Still extremely stiff and robust, this caliper range gives the best of both worlds, strength and reliability but at a reduced cost.
