Just what I was afraid of after reading Randy's very good and thorough explaination of the brake caliper surface area of the old Toyota vs.  new Wilwood caliper.   Sounds like next new item may be a new Wilwood master cylinder with INEX stamp on it.  I am hoping that the guys who will be trying this new brake package will find out that the current master cylinder will work OK with the new Wilwood brake calipers.   Otherwise, where does this stop?  If the master cylinder requires to be changed also, then new brake lines will be required also as most Wilwood master cylinder utilize AN type fittings as far as I recall.  Pretty soon the average weekly racer just trying to have fun will be broke and finished.   Sometimes change is good and sometimes not.....As I said before,  only time will tell.  Anxious to hear back initial results with those with the new brakes.

The whole system was tested by multiple teams, NONE had issues that they felt were a problem. Doug Stevens may be the most popular set up guy out there and he liked the whole thing. They tested large and small piston Wilwood calipers, different compound pads and they all felt this was the best combo. This was not a stab in the dark, this was well tested.

Frank they originally tested the rears, the fronts became a e true problem due to supply and demand for a better product.

The formula of piston size to master cylinder ratio negates one important part. The piston area has increased by 50% per caliper, BUT the pad surface area has been greatly decreased. This is critical if you are trying to compare the new to old.

I'm actually surpised there's not a new master cylinder that goes with this package.  Its another opportunity for INEX to bring a part completely in house from a supply perspective and provide a quality racing part to us versus a aftermarket OEM part that we can buy from several different outlets besides our dealers. 

I'd welcome a new, racing quality master cylinder if it was offered.

I received my new brakes on Monday and have purchased  the most aggressive pad that currently can be bought for that caliper from summit racing for $80.50 just so I can personally feel the difference between the pads that cone with the package and the new pads I bought

Hyerflyer2....Regarding the aggressive pads you bought for that caliper from Summit Racing for $80.50.  Is that price for brake pads for one caliper or both calipers?

Thanks!

Wilwood (and others) offer some nice master cylinders. I think, with the brake caliper change, it will just be a matter of time.

Well, it is 11:30pm EST so there are now races complete and those who have used the new calipers.

Any product reports on the first night out?

After losing 2 of the caliber sliders in 2 consecutive weeks I will probably buy the system anyway.

Robert,

If you throw away the little "hair pin" clips and use safety wire on the slides you will never lose another.

I did that back in 1994 and I have not lost one since...
