Outlander Front Big Brake Upgrade

This upgrade is designed for those who wish to upgrade the braking performance of their DSM. This is a more modest upgrade than the other brake upgrades we carry but it's a very inexpensive one. The premise behind this upgrade is that if you take a caliper and move it further out from the centre of the wheel hub, braking performance increases. Even if the size of the caliper and pads remain the same, braking performance still increases. As it happens, Mitsu designed one of their vehicles to take advantage of this simple concept: the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Outlander uses the exact same dual-piston caliper found on an AWD DSM but it uses a caliper bracket that spaces the caliper 10mm further from the centre of the hub. Of course, the Outlander rotor is 20mm larger in diameter to match (296mm vs. 276mm). For those DSMers that already have dual-piston calipers, the only components required for this upgrade are the Outlander caliper brackets and the Outlander rotors. That's it. Any DSM dual-piston caliper (either 1g or 2g) will work with the Outlander brackets.
