Double rear calliper

Postby a2pen » Wed Jan 23, 2013 6:41 pm

In the design process again.
Got a hydronic hand brake and want a dual rear calliper set up, only the altezza calliper is slightly to big.
Does any one know a good calliper that's a little smaller but not silly money

Yes a caliper between the upper arm and front track arm. It looks to big to fit, I think I may have a solution a omega rear caliper twin piston, got it just need to eye it up then make a jig :D

I can't see it seizing because it will be in constant use, agreed on vectra they are not the best. But for what I need look to be ok
