Alcon R-Type Formula Ford Caliper
|This item qualifies for FREE Shipping in the continental United States!|
The lightweight aluminum R-Type caliper from Alcon has enjoyed years of success at many levels of racing. Now this proven caliper has been tailored to fit Formula Ford, F2000, and Sports 2000.
The 2-piece, 2-piston caliper is a conventional leg mount design, made to be a direct bolt-on replacement for the cast iron AP/Lockheed LD20 caliper. No machining or adapting is required. It weighs less than 3 pounds (50% less than the original). This caliper takes the common D044 pad shared with the Girling 14LF caliper. Spring-type retaining clips make pad changes quick and easy, with no messing around with cotter pins. The 44.5mm (1.75") diameter pistons are the same as the LD20, so you don't even need to adjust your setup. SCCA legal for Formula Continental (FCS 9.1.1.B.6.a), Formula Ford (9.1.1.D.10.a), and Sports 2000 (9.1.9.B.7.b).
