Raceleda Brake Nipples for M16 4 Pot Callipers

Can i get them off the shelf anywhere, or can some one tell me what thread etc they are id rather change them too a size where i can put a metric spanner on while im at it. 8 nipples at the front.

Motor world dont do them and i popped into ATS on off chance and they dont have any.

When you do a google search, Rally design appear to have them but i cant find them on there site.

Because im sure they are not metric on the raceleda callipers, the brass section is 11mm spanner and the bleed nipple is slightly bigger than a 6mm (6.25mm according to my callipers) but im not sure on the thread.

Well I am stumped then. I would let you have mine but the new owner of the car might not appreciate it.

Good luck

Just buy a 1/4" AF spanner! if the hexagon is in imperial then it's likely that the threads are something like 1/4"UNF and there is no metric thread that will fit

The Raceleda calipers are manufactured by Outlaw in the states, but branded as Raceleda.

Supplied by Outlaw to various other companies also

The inlet & bleed screw threads are 1/8 NPT

The Outlaw caliper looks identical to the Wilwood Billet Dynalite

which use a 1/4" fitting so I would think the bleed nipples would fit too. They're only a few from RallyDesign, and they're next day delivery.
