Stole this picture from Jason over at g force design concepts(not sure if hes a member on here or not?) showing the hhi vs stock vs glenndynes caliper brake pads

what a diff eh

I saw that on FB too, and it makes sense, just at what point does surface area stop being a factor in comparison to number of pistons, if ever?

Longer is great, but if the machined portion of the rotor isnt wide enough to support a wider pad, then you are out of luck huh?

I'd like to ditch a caliper and rotor on mine, but dont want to suffer braking loss

Basically the number of pistons dosn't always mean more power, it does play apart in brake feel and sensitivity etc..but if 4 pistons have more area in terms of volume and the master cylinder can supply enough force it can quite concievably function better than a 6 piston with less piston volume. There are many factors in braking basically its "the application of managed friction utilizing force and rotor surface area". you need all 3 rotor size, power, and pads.
