Have any of you guys put disc brakes on the back of your T?
If so, what car did you rob the parts from?
I have a speedster that goes pretty fast but doesn't stop so good.
Have tried Rocky Mountains, but they fade really fast at sixty.
I need to stop scaring myself.
I found that Rocky's would stop the back wheels Ok. The trouble was they wouldn't stop the car very well. I think you really need 4 wheel brakes if you have a fast speedster and you drive it fast. I certainly understand your comment about scaring yourself. The simple solution (but impractical) is to discipline yourself to slow down your driving. At least it didn't work for me.
4 wheel brakes is not simple to do well but it can be done.
Yeah, I probably could slow down...or not!
This thing is just so damn much fun to drive at 50 or 60 I'm like a drug addict when I'm in it.
Slow down...yeah, right! LOL
I am trying to post a picture of my speedster with my four wheel disc brake setup. Please be patient. I will have more details soon.
Thats a great looking speedster chassis.
Is that a Morton and Brett Speedway body in the picture leaning on the radiator?
The steering - what is that?
How is the radiator bracket/suspension mounted?
As a speedster fan, i wait with bated breath!!
Is that a AH Sprite or MGB Rack and Pinion? nice setup..
What flexible link are you using for the steering shaft to R&P? Streetrodders have tried the Pinto heavy cable, and found it unsafe.
1980 Subaru GL wagon Rack and pinion. Haven't decided on flexible link yet for steering column as I haven't gotten that far probably slip joints and small u-joint like Flamming River manufactures and custom built shafts. I'll post a more current picture tonight as it is going to the roadster show on Wednesday evening and I have a good one of the brakes and new exhaust that was installed Saturday.
