    Talking Brakes Overkill

    i just wanted to know if you really need dual calipers with quad pistons for teh front wheels on a 350Z?



    I seen a 350Z with these 2 piece rotors front and rear plus 2 calipers per front side. so make a total fo 4 calipers jsut the front.

    Is this an overkill or what?

    Maybe it doesnt NEED all of that, but if I owned oa 350z, no amount of brake hardware would be considered overkill.



    It does weight over 3200lbs.

    I'm sure one aluminium caliper per rotor with 4 piston is enough. F1 don't have dual caliper. It's all for show I guess. On top of that it gives you more unsprung weight. Anyways I'm happy with my alu 4 pots and think most people would be too.

    I saw that Z also! Sick, two calipers up front on some huge discs!! Same sized discs in the rear with one caliper. It's gray with a carbon fiber hood and it looks crazy (except for the stickers).

    It's useless on a street car...I mean if you can lock up your tires you don't need stronger calipers.



    BTW F1s can't use dual calipers, it's in the regs. They did some experiments and it worked well but that was back when they had big-ass slicks.

    overkill
    Citation Envoyé par Gregster
    So today I took my F430 out. I parked in on ste catherine behind a NA 300ZX.

    Needless to say after coming out of the restaurant I found a crowd around the 300ZX. People were in a state of shock at the site of a RHD car.
