Can you clarify something for me? Why do pretty much
all high-performance brake systems use dual-sided calipers
if there isn't much of a difference? Why do they use so
many pistons?

All of the high-end racing applications use dual-sided calipers
with many pistons- sometimes even 6 or 8 pistons, with the
extreme being the 12 piston Alcon system.
