I think this is pretty industry standard....  You normally have to rebuild
most good racing calipers every year as they aren't meant for daily street
use.  This applies to all of them that I know....  Wilwoods, AP, Alcon,
etc...  Brembos too, but not the Porsche ones.  They are technically
"street" calipers after all.  But with the price difference...  $1500 for
the Big red kit!!!!

Rebuild kits are pretty cheap and I hear they are easy to rebuild.  Your
basically just replacing the piston seals.
