Jordan is spot on with monoblock vs. 2 pc calipers. After some hardcore tracking the two pc will simply leak. Those two surfaces move under temperature, especially if you have air blowing on the inside half but none on the outwards due to rim.

I still dont understand why nobody runs the AP racing Radicals for same money as this two pc, smaller brake system?!? Two pc caliper for $3800........hmmmmmm

Wow...just realized they use same pads so same surface area and lower rotor ring mass?!?!?! So less heat sink in system.....equals higher pad temps equals more pad fade. I dont think this system will perform better than the OEM 6 piston....not even close to the radical system.

I've struggled with upgrading to a 6-piston setup for a long time, but since installing my front brake ducts, I have had ZERO issue with overheating the brakes.

The Brembo SS stock calipers are just fine for your typical track day use. They are super easy to swap out the pads too. However, I must say that we never experience extremely hot days here in Vancouver.
