For the longest time I was using some 4 piston calipers, and then I was using some 6 piston calipers, but it just wasn't enough... piston calipers were just not cutting it no matter how many they shoved in there...so now I run rotary calipers. These are the same style brakes they used on the Mazda RX-7!! The ones I'm using now are twin-rotor calipers.

I only have to be traveling at like 3mph to pull a phat 9 o'clock stoppie now!

You need to turbo charge them man, you might be able to do a stoppie without moving if they are turboed like that.
Def. a good mod, did you just take the rotors out of someone's rx-7? and what rpm do you run them at.

HAH, i bet you had to overclock AND crossdrill your ECU for that.

I bought 2 worlds strongest man winners and mounted them on my forks. They squeeze the rotors when I whip them. Talk about stoppies!

Why can't you just grab one of the spokes while the bike is running

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Verniers are _last_ year's news!!! Haven't you seen the new monoblock outside micrometers from Snap-On???? You can dial in down to precision braking. Either that or go all out and get one of those engineering thingies for doing Rockwell Hardness testing...tough to mount though. Well, unless you use JB weld!!
