Soft BIG RED Brakes

There are more wrong ways to put the Big Red calipers on a 944 than right.

After hearing stories of 944s with Big Red Brake upgrades having mushy pedals, I started asking questions. After finding more than one person with the system installed wrong, I thought it might be a good idea to put out a tech article on this subject. If done properly, your brake pedal should be "firm as hell" with no more than 1" total pedal travel.

Those buying the kits from us should not have this problem because we make the necessary changes in - house and properly mark the boxes as to what goes where.

Here is where the problem starts.

The Big Red caliper first hit the scene on the 993 TT. On the 911, the caliper mounts forward of the front spindle. On the 944, the caliper sits behind the front spindle. This is important because of the piston diameters and position of the bleeder screws.

Each caliper has a small arrow on it showing the direction the brake rotors turn within the caliper. The left caliper for the 993 should remain the left caliper on the 944 because when you move the caliper from the front to the rear of the spindle, the direction of the rotor turning is the same. When this caliper is now at the rear, the bleeder screws now face downward and the cross over tube is on the top. You need to switch these lines. You cannot bleed the brakes with the bleeder screws facing downward. Air bubbles float to the top and they are trapped. Remove the cross over lines (10mm line wrench) and remove the bleeder screws (11mm line wrench or box end). They are the same threads on all 4 holes. Install the bleeders on the top, and the cross over tube on the bottom.

Common Mistake 1: Left Caliper on left side with bleed screws on the bottom. Problem: Cannot properly bleed brakes and they will be spongy. Solution: Swap cross over lines and bleeders as mentioned above.

Common Mistake 2: Left Caliper put on Right Side and Right Caliper put on Left Side to get the bleeder screws on top. (providing you did not swap the lines/bleeders.) Problem: Piston orientation incorrect and will cause the pads to wear tapered and the pistons can eventually jam, or worse, have total brake failure. Very Dangerous! Plus the brakes, even if properly bled, will not apply maximum braking pressure on the pads. The pads wear more tapered the thinner they get. Solution: Switch right to left, and left to right and swap lines and bleeders.

Common Mistake 3: Putting the original front calipers on the rear. Problem: Too much rear brake and you cannot control rear brake lock up. Solution: Leave the rear brakes on the rear.

Common Mistake 4: Adjustment when bleeding brakes on rear adjustable brake bias valve. Problem: Cannot properly bleed brakes and they will be spongy. Solution: When using Big Reds on the front of a 951, and the stock calipers on the rear, you will need very little bias to the rear of the car. On our vehicle, our 20 turn adjustable bias control is only 1/2 a turn open. Any more will result in rear brake lock up. In order to bleed the brakes, you "MUST" open the valve all the way. After bleeding the brakes, return the knob to your selected position. When the valve is open only the little bit it requires on the 951, you cannot move enough fluid through the system fast enough to bleed the brakes.

If your brakes are installed and bled properly, your 951 will stop on a dime and give you 9 cents change!

INTERNATIONAL ORDERING



TO OUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:


In the past, we have used a separate order form for placing International orders. We have quit using that process and are requiring all customer to use the shopping cart system built into the web site and it's check out process.

If you simply want a quotation and are not ready to place an order, then cut and paste the contents of your shopping basket, take a screen shot of the basket, or make a list of items and send us a email requesting a quotation with shipping.

If you need shipping prices before you make your final decision to purchase, then you should request that quotation by email and not use the shopping cart checkout process because you will be paying for the parts at that time.

Since our shopping cart and shipping estimator will "NOT" correctly calculate shipping charges on International Orders, we have it set-up to where the shipping will be Zero Dollars ($0.00) when checking out. When the shopping carts address process learns you are not in the United States by selecting your particular country, that's when it switches to equal Zero. That does NOT mean shipping is free.

Upon completion of the check out process, you will have paid for your parts but NOT the shipping on those parts.

Once we look over your parts ordered and calculate shipping weights and box sizes, we will send you an E-Mail with at least one shipping option and maybe several. We utilize UPS, DHL and the United States Postal Service (USPS) to deliver your parts.

Once you pick a shipping carrier and agree to the quotation by returning the E-Mail, we will be sending a PayPal money request for the amount of the shipping to be collected. If the parts are expected to be shipping out quickly, then you may receive that email quickly. If the parts are going to need to be built or something is on back order from the list of parts, we may hold off sending that E-Mail until we have the shipment ready to go. It can vary from order to order as to how we do that. If you think you should be hearing from us quickly, but you don't, feel free to contact us.

If you have special shipping needs or requirements, during the checkout you will see a SPECIAL ORDER INSTRUCTIONS window. Enter that special information there.

A good bit of our business is International and we have been taking care of those valued customers since 1999.
