Single- or Dual Piston Brake Booster Delete, What's Right For Me?
At Chase Bays, we’ve been making manual brake conversions for many years. We’ve talked about why manual brakes are awesome, why our solutions are ideal for motorsports and the like, so check out that content for a more in-depth look at the background on why we started creating these products!
Here, we want to explain some key differences between our two core offerings, our Single- and Dual-Piston Brake Booster Deletes. These aren’t “version 1” and “version 2” of the same product, these are two different solutions to suit different use cases. Both share common ground in that they will result in consistent, improved pedal feel and feedback, but there are some key differences, and we want to help you select the right one for your build.
We’ll start with our Single Piston Brake Booster Delete. This is a compact solution that has been on the market for many years and has been proven on thousands of builds, ranging from competition motorsports to street and show car builds. It’s an economical and ultra-compact solution. It’s sleek, it’s aesthetically pleasing, and it will bolt in just like a factory piece. You’ll immediately notice improved pedal feel and more consistent braking performance.
Our single-piston solution is ultra-compact, more compact than our dual-piston solution. When combined with our brake line relocation, this will offer the cleanest possible look for your engine bay. This ultra-compact design is extremely economical and offers a very competitive price point.
For motorsports-oriented builds, our Dual Piston Brake Booster Delete takes things a step further in the direction of ultimate performance. For starters, we adjust the pedal ratio to 6:1, generally considered optimal for manual brake setups in top-tier racing series. This helps provide optimal pedal feel and pedal effort, allowing a driver to turn lap after lap, even in endurance racing settings, consistently. We have even taken this to the track to prove the part, time and again, drifting and racing. We've podiumed a few times along the way.
Being a motorsport-oriented solution, we designed the Dual Piston Brake Booster Delete to be legal for any sanctioning body, whether FormulaDRIFT, SCCA, NASA, WRL or any others. This includes a true dual-circuit design with a dual-chamber reservoir to ensure that a failure at either end of the car won’t affect the other.
Both of these products offer excellent bang for the buck and are proven on countless cars on the street and track. Still not sure which is best for your build? We’re happy to help!
