Many knights know that being able to stop is more important than running fast. Therefore, in addition to improving the dynamic performance of the vehicle, the braking performance cannot be ignored. Many friends also like to do
Modifications to the calipers.
Before upgrading the caliper of your car, do you have a clear understanding of its working principle, parameters, configuration, etc.? Are expensive calipers necessarily safer?
After reading this article, you may have a better understanding of calipers.
Modified calipers, the car will be safer?
This is really not certain. Although upgrading the caliper does increase the braking force, the upgrade of the caliper must also be matched with the brake pump and even the upgrade of the control.
If the above details are neglected, it is likely to cause certain dangers. This is why some car enthusiasts think that after modifying the calipers, they will feel that the brakes are too strong, but it is a bit dangerous.
What is the difference between unidirectional and opposite calipers?
From a literal point of view, a one-way caliper means that only one side of the caliper has a piston design, and the other side is a fixed brake pad. Therefore, the one-way calipers will be equipped with a floating pin design, which allows the calipers to move left and right, so that the brake pads on both sides can bite into the disc.
One-way calipers will be equipped with floating pin design，The opposing caliper has a piston design on both sides of the caliper, which uses hydraulic pressure to push the brake pads in both directions to clamp the disc. In terms of braking performance, opposed calipers are obviously better than unidirectional calipers, so most of the common modified calipers on the market are opposed designs.

What is a radiation caliper?
The English name of radial calipers is Radial Mount Calipers, also known as radial calipers. The difference between the radial caliper and the traditional caliper is that the screws at both ends are locked in a radial manner, which is different from the side locking method of the traditional caliper. The radial locking method can reduce the lateral shear force.
Which is better, casting or forging?
The answer is forged calipers. For the same material, forged calipers have stronger rigidity than cast calipers, and under the same rigidity, forged calipers are lighter than cast calipers.
What materials are the pistons on the calipers made of?
Material: titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, iron; influencing factors: heat dissipation and oxidation. The piston is the intermediate medium for the brake oil to push the brake pads. When the caliper is working, the brake pads will generate high temperature due to friction. Under the conduction of the piston, the temperature of the brake oil will gradually rise. The brake fluid that exceeds the operating temperature will lose its conductivity.
Therefore, materials with faster heat dissipation can provide more stable braking performance. The material also affects the performance of the piston. For example, a rusty piston will generate resistance when it moves. The common materials of pistons are titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, and iron from high to low grade.
