The design is based upon a US Brake 88i Aluminum Caliper.

There are two options to how these are built, a full caliper (which covers the rotor), or a half caliper (used in special circumstances).
This kit has enough parts to do one car, with a few optional parts left over.
A key addition to this kit are the etched brake pads, which you won't find elsewhere.

*Note* Dirt Modeler adjusted the calipers so you no longer have to trim the body as shown in the instructions.
Soldering is preferred and is shown in the instructions, but glue can be used.
A free assembly tutorial will be emailed as a PDF file after checkout.

Remember to always fold INTO the fold lines when bending up your photoetch. These parts are designed with bend tolerances, and the fold lines disappear in the crease after the parts are folded.
