a good single piston design can be just as good as a multi pot design

there's many on here who just think the single pots aren't as good because they're not as pretty as the fixed multi pot calipers.

you do know that multi piston calipers can create more heat issues than single pots as the brake line goes over the rotor (which will be HOT if it's being driven hard) while the single pot does not get it's fluid heated in the same fashion as the fluid is only on one side of the rotor.

There are advantages and drawbacks to each design, one design isn't as pretty and that's why most people prefer multi pots.
