Brambles, the brakes are excellent, I took it for a spin to Manchester in the week to run it in and at one stage on the motorway in the fast lane everything came to a halt traffic wise
I used my military cadence braking training, not quite as fast as ABS
but it certainly stopped me in good time, I could see vehicles in my rear view mirror locked up with brakes smoking and made a quick right onto the shingle, the first vehicle behind me was an X5 and if I had not moved onto the shingle he may have had a taste of 'Bates' tow bar up his snout
. Anyway, I was dead impressed with its stopping power, but I must admit it all seemed like it was in slow motion as I pumped the brakes and the car in front came VERY close, even more interesting when you have not tested the brakes in those circumstances before, and again it is wise to keep your 3 secondish gap, had I been towing 2.5 t of boat behind it would have been a totally different matter
So lesson learnt, keep your distance and keep an eye on the w.nkers behind who maybe don't
Well had a few bits put on this morning at the garage, an 8mm solid Stainless steel plate (beautifully engineered) to protect the steering, and a galvanised dif guard, helps when you come across those high kerbs in London
Still waiting for my Saturday delivery of the Van Aaken will post pics of that being fitted 'if' it arrives today.
