Outlander Front Big Brake Upgrade

This upgrade is designed for those who wish to upgrade the braking performance of their EVO. This is a more modest upgrade than the Cobra or VR4 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 the early EVOs 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). The only components required for this upgrade are the Outlander caliper brackets and the Outlander rotors. That's it. The early EVO calipers themselves are exactly the same as the calipers found on the Outlander.
