How to select brake discs and calipers?
When we refit calipers, the choice of brake discs is a matter of great concern to everyone. So, how do we choose the brake disc or caliper? First of all, pay attention to the size of the wheel hub, because the size of the wheel hub will directly affect the size of the brake disc you choose. For example, a 19 inch wheel hub should be matched with this 362*32mm brake disc. If the size of the brake disc is too large, it is difficult to plug it into the wheel hub; If the brake disc is too small, it will directly affect the appearance and overall braking performance.
So, how to select the brake caliper after selecting the brake disc? It should be selected according to the size of your brake disc. For example, if you match the 362*32mm brake disc, what can match is the brake caliper GT8. You can wear as big a hat as your head. Therefore, the hub directly determines the size and selection range of brake discs and brake calipers.
1. See if the brake caliper is heavy
When it comes to the weight of calipers, it is actually linked to the material and manufacturing process. If it is the same material, forging has stronger rigidity than casting, and under the same rigidity, forging is lighter than casting. Generally, light calipers are still popular in the market. The modified caliper reduces the unsprung mass and naturally improves the handling of the vehicle. Moreover, the light calipers will not drag down the vehicle's power system, but make the power system more powerful. At present, there are many brands that use forging technology to make calipers. For example, RGD, TCF and AP brakes in the United States use forging technology. This kind of calipers are relatively light, and the weight of RGD forged calipers is less than 3.5kg.
2. Look at the size of the brake caliper
Generally, the larger the brake caliper, the better. Because the friction area is increased, the braking will be good. For example, it's the same reason that the power brake of a bicycle is longer than the ordinary brake skin. The larger the brake caliper, the greater the friction with the brake disc. In this way, the braking effect may be enhanced, but it also depends on the specific model. Blindly pursuing large calipers is not enough.
3. Look how many pistons there are in the brake caliper
Of course, it is good to have more calipers and pistons. For the same car, the clamping power will be improved by replacing the original single piston calipers and upgrading the multi piston clamp. The advantage of more pistons is that the braking force can be more evenly dispersed while maintaining the total braking force unchanged; Because in intense driving and high speed, frequent re stepping on the brake will produce huge heat, which will lead to the rapid temperature rise of the brake disc. After the temperature rise, the brake disc will be in a red hot state, and the strength of the brake disc will be reduced at this time. Therefore, multi piston can disperse all braking forces more evenly, from single point force to multi-point force (the total braking force remains unchanged), which is of great benefit to protect the brake disc from cracking and prevent local overheating. At the same time, it is also of great help to fast braking.
