Interesting. Was the rotor that grenaded cross drilled or slotted? I prefer solid disks for track duty.No, it was an aftermarket rotor. We have since switched to Remmen Brakes and had zero troubles
It was cross-drilled/slotted. All these years our only rotor failure.Interesting. Was the rotor that grenaded cross drilled or slotted? I prefer solid disks for track duty.
Never thought of the wheel barrel as a containment structure for the brake rotor. Wonder what speed Monica was at when it let go.
We were probably going about 65 around a right hand sweeper that was uphill but off-camber to the uphill side when the back end of the truck just slammed to the ground. It wasn't scary at all just startling as hell. It was during a testing session (we were breaking gears so just putting some miles on them, not tuning suspension). Those were EBC brakes I believe. Might have been Stop Tech. There is some thought that the lug nuts sheared then broke the rotor rather than the other way around. There was a huge chunk for rotor still in the caliper when we climbed out to look at it. That was a long day of recovery.
That's a good question. I'd have to look closer at the rule book. Most verbiage speaks to suspension type and location. Can't convert from leaf to coil, torsion bars to coilovers etc and must retain stock factory, unreinforced links. I'm not sure sway bars are included.So being a rebadged LX allows standard sway bars.. if you had been running a LC would you have had to keep KDSS or do the suspension rules allow a swap?
I'd have to take a closer look at the suspension rules but I don't think they call our even needing a sway bar system.So being a rebadged LX allows standard sway bars.. if you had been running a LC would you have had to keep KDSS or do the suspension rules allow a swap?
We are not seeing that issue like we do on the 100/470. We sell a great deal of SuperPro rack bushing kits for the 100/470, I don't think we've had a single call for the 200/570. Obviously there may be 9 year lag to catch up with the age/miles but I do think the 200 bushings are superior design and function. We replace racks on Monica (Canguro 200) due to play in the rack, never because of bushings in fact we've had to repair the frame rack mounts on occasion because they crack where the rack mounts.
