I was looking at that but I have a bad habbit of breaking drive shafts and its mucho coin and you have to use there d-shaft then. I was reading that caddy calipers will fit on 1" wide rotors anybody using this set up ?

cadyy calipers will fit 1" rotors
but they are junk
they are nothing like a normal caliper
they dont auto adjust like a normal caliper, they have this stupid screw setup that is worse then drum brakes.
you have to use the ebrake or they go out of adjustment

great to pass a VI but i wouldnt run them daily, use for VI then suff them in a box till the next VI
