I rebuilt a brake caliper today, might put them on the falcon......lol
They're off a CAT 776C Tractor, front. They have 6 pistons, use hydraulic oil instead of brake fluid, and as you can see in the pic, that is a 500g tub of rubber grease sitting next to it for a comparison.

They wouldn't actually stop your falcon very well except on billiard-table smooth surfaces, because the unsprung weight would see the unsprung components leaving the ground or nearabouts even over small bumps, especially if low profile tyres are fitted.

But if you want to get really radical, widen them so they can clamp the entire wheel, and fit them to the sprung mass.
