    Good evening everyone.

    Gearing up to swap out my power drum brakes for front discs/rear drums. I know there are many options out there for me.

    My question is for a street/occasional strip car what are your recommendations for calipers? Dual piston or single piston?

    Pros/Cons of each?

    The more pistons involved the more fluid volume needed to fill them.......

    Singles are pretty cheap, but wildwood 52 can be purchased at the same time as the rest if the kids for a minimum price compared to swapping out later. I think ccp sells a complete spindle kit with everything needed with drill and slotted rotors for like 500ish

    500ish is about right for fronts. If you haven't purchased yet, check out Kore3 too. I just got front and back 2 piston kits. I've heard that more pistons give more stopping power but I'm not a race car driver. I just want to have some fun and keep it safe. Tobin at Kore3 has been great to work with..
