Monoblock calipers are used in F1 and top pro race series. AP uses a monoblock caliper on the M3 in the ALMS - if 2-piece calipers are better why are they using a monoblock caliper in the ALMS? StopTech is making a general statement about 2-piece calipers being stiffer than ALL monoblock calipers which is an absolute joke. Don't believe everything that you read...
