but more unsprung weight ...not sure it would be worth the tradeoff. IMO, it isn't that hard to achieve world class stopping power with more conventional means.

You would have to have HUGE rotors, like the porsche, otherwise twin calipers would cover the majority of the rotor and allow no room/time for heat dissipation. Overkill in my opinion.

Now that I think about it...what all would be involved in doing dual calipers? Like...splitting the brake lines some how..and...?

You will also need custom suspension to clear the brakes. The weight factor is another issue as well as increased hydraulic fluid will make for a softer pedal. The brake hydraulic bias will alos be off.

Looks cool... but is it really necessary?

Replacing brake pads will be twice as fun :-D

Another point I forgot to mention was the fact that this would be essentially useless on a street car, because this set up would most likely out-brake any street tires out there. Maybe road racing tires could hold up, but otherwise I think it would be futile. ;)
