AP Twin Pot Calipers
FITS THE FOLLOWING MODELS:
These radially mounted AP Twin Pot calipers have been designed to work specifically with our Rear GT Hubs or the early Mk1 type uprights using our Radial caliper mounts.
They have a Twin 41.3mm Pistons which is a perfect combination with our EP Tuning 4 Pot Brake Calipers and other 4 pot calipers.
AP is synonymous with all forms of racing and are known throughout the world as the best.
We have chosen AP (as Lotus have in all their race cars) to be our preffered supplier for our upgraded brake packages.
They have a high quality aluminium alloy body with cast in protection for the bleeders and stainless steel cross over lines.
AP calipers are rigid yet lightweight with thin wall stainless steel pistons for low heat transfer from the pad.
They will take/dissipate more heat with no fade and last longer because of the material and process used in the manufacture.
1/. The larger pistons within the caliper create more clamping load.
2/. The leverage on the outside of the disc is further outwards thus the clamping force is greater.
3/. The pads have a larger surface area than the original rear pads so they will last longer.
4/. Improves the rear braking bias on your car which is a great advantage as its lacking on all Elise derivatives.
5/. Lightweight, pressure cast aluminium alloy 2-piece body for better pedal feel than typical monoblock calipers
6/. Fixed radial mount for minimal caliper flex
7/. Hard anodized coating
8/. Internal dust seals for everyday use
9/. Anti-rattle clip to eliminate pad knock
For those running 200BHP+ and/or competitively racing, AP calipers and discs are an essential requirement.
These AP calipers will require larger discs than OE; we recommend at least 295mm AP discs are used as they will be too powerful for OE standard discs.
Although the AP discs have a larger outside diameter they are usually lighter than the original equipment steel discs you have on your car.
Please be aware that these have no internal handbrake mechanism so are for race use only
