All you should need to do is drop our name, we have been with Racing Brake for a few years now. They have all our info.

so as long as my VA appointment doesnt turn into a 4 hour nightmare (50-50 chance) I will squeeze in a trip to fullerton as long as the boss is at the office for racingbrake. if anyone has requests for photos of some of their products let me know.


i will be taking pics of a caliper thats the closets to ours they already have wih shots of the pistons etc. Get a best guesstimate of weight and other figures.

"Total weight of one caliper loaded with pads & adapters = 10.3 lbs.
Total weight of one OE caliper loaded with pads = 10.8 lbs" --RB

that another half a pound a corner plus upgraded pistons and much better heat management not to mention much stronger. no more dust boots to fry because the piston is machined correctly. 2 allen or hex bolts to remove and pad swap. they sent me pictures but i cant view on phone.

i will respond via email or phone shortly while waiting for doctor.

pictures of the calipers in different colors...you can barely see the pistons in a couple of the calipers...no more dust boot because the piston is machined correctly and makes dust boot obsolete.

Here are some Q&A re dust boots.

Q: Why do my caliper boots keep burning down on me after track events?

A: Because OE boots are not made for high heat environment so they can easily get melted under high temperature operation.


Q: Do I have to replace them?

A: Every component serves its purpose. The boot can shield the "heat" from getting into your brake system and ‘brake dust” to your pressure seals. Ignoring them can lead to more replacement in brake fluid, and down time in caliper rebuild.


Q: I heard some members suggested just leave it, by referring to most racing calipers don't even come with dust boots, is this a valid recommendation?

A: I can’t verify how true that is (racing calipers don't have dust boot) but keep in mind that those professional racers are racing for their sponsors, so they absolutely don’t have to care for the maintenance & replacement cost like you guys. It's also conceivable that those calipers are specifically made for racing purpose, by eliminating dust boot feature means cutting down the development cost and time.


Q: Is there a way to get around so the brake dust can be shielded but w/o having to watch out for replacement.

A: RB calipers are designed with “built-in” dust seal which eliminates the replacement headaches.


Q: How does your dust seal compare to OE dust boots for durability and installation.

A: Our dust seals literally never need replacement unlike boots type which requires constant replacements; installation is much easier than boots if ever needed.
