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

how do to you mean, mounting another caliper oposite the original 1

there was a video of the HKS drift altezza, showed it being unloaded from the truck and a walk around and a shake down test. And it showed a twin oem set up on the rear. cant find the vid tho :(

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
