DPI Performance Racing Products, the company that brought you advanced traction management torque sensing differentials to get you off the corners, is now introducing an advanced, high-tech brake caliper to help you get into the corners. The newly designed calipers are manufactured out of billet aluminum for maximum strength. The calipers use a standard 3 1/2-inch mount, fit rotor sizes up to 13 inches and are available in 1 7/8-inch and 1 3/4-inch stagger piston that reduce brake pad taper.
The 100 percent made in the U.S.A. calipers feature stainless steel pistons with high temperature sealing O-rings. These seals use Round O-ring technology that delivers good piston rollback.
Other key features include:
* 3-bolt design
* Integrated locking design to reduce caliper flex
* Internal crossover fluid passages
* Locking bridge support-one of the strongest in the market
* Thermal coating offered on piston to reduce heat and piston drag
Randy Larsen, the owner and product developer of DPI has completed the design of this new caliper with durability and pricing in mind. For example, the fasteners used in the Series 71 caliper are stronger and beefier 3/8-inch and 1/4-inch bolts.
Larson has worked with many race teams in testing and refinement of this new caliper. They will work very well on oval track applications as well as for road racing and in the hot rod market.
