    below is a site showing more of the disc brake conversion pictures - and what happened when it was put on brake test rollers to test the brake efficiency for it's 12 month MOT test
    Able Engineering (midlands) Ltd - Home | Facebook
    Under 1 of the previous pictures on this site is an A4 piece of paper stating the T&C's from the supplier of the kit, absolving them of all legal comeback etc,
    before we release our disc brake conversion for general sale we will have to consult somebody legal to confirm if this can be done.
    Steering Ram parts now being made !!
    It's Peterborough LRO show this weekend, hope the weather stays dry.
    Here is another 1 of Martins toys based on an ex MOD Bedford 16 ton (32 ton war load) troop carrier chassis - with a higher 5th gear fitted in the gearbox, 70 mph is possible, tyres are the limiting factor !!
    Cheers

    I wonder if anyone has heard if the Able engineering disc brakes are available yet

    AJ's conversion using D3 disks and Defender calipers is now available - he let me know at Corowa so I'll be getting a set of those with my tax return.

    Disc Brakes

    Good luck with that - Iíve quizzed him regarding price and he was aiming somewhere a bit lower than the Zeus conversion - which is about $1000 per corner so about $2000 for a front set but nailing him down exactly was impossible.

    It has been recalled from the market last I heard - issues with warping of the discs.

    When I buy a lathe, Iím going to have a go myself with a vented disc rather than solid.
