Not sure yet, the wilwoodVW Audi single pot like on Batmobile and Bens circuit car are the obvious choice, but keep looking at lighter wilwood, HiSpec, Comp Brake options. There rear of the car doesnt need huge stoppers, especially if i can get the car sub 800kg.
Thats why ive not drilled the caliper holes

With the rugby going on, I thought you were trying to show a photo of Brian doing the haka, on closer inspection , it says "aka". Nice strong stance ready for a haka rhough!

the Yorkshire haka

They don`t do that on Ilkley train station, or the close bye moor,even with b`hat tat.
Contrary to popular belief the majority of inhabitants of Ilkley are rather rich and elderly.
Average house price is circa £419,000, I live "Just ova `till" and can see Ilkley moor from my gaff and median price near me is half that.

Although as Brian has visited me on a few occasions he can agree the views are brilliant, it`s the other "Inhabitants" that ruin the place. :cloud:

Looking good Mr.H...

Did you choose metric threads to act as Flat Hat repellent or is the education going well?
