ISO X-brake

Looking for a used x-brake. Have to modify a disco LT230 otherwise so I may as well upgrade if someone has one they are willing to give up!

One of the best pieces of upgrade kit for a Rover.

Converts the factory drum parking brake to disc. IMO a properly maintained and setup factory unit is perfectly effective in 98% of situations

Sounds like a cool product. I would have been interested in one of these a few years ago when my parking break exploded at 70 mph while towing a boat. Sounded like I ran a lawn mower over a pile of gravel. Wheels locked up. What a mess. My parking break line had just been tightened the day before, so I'm pretty sure that had been a bad idea. ;-)

Unless it gets wet, muddy, or greasy. Three things a Rover never sees.

This a why cars have disc brakes and not drums anymore.

I have the x brake and am really not impressed with it... I prefer the stock unit... When you look at clamping surfaces it simply cannot be as effective in an extreme situation..

I had this installed on my D90...it's still in refresh so I'm hopeful it's worth it.

I've been thinking about it for my 109. The stock brake works sometimes.

When it gets back from the shop I'll have to adjust it because I did drive around with it engaged a few weeks ago, makes a lot of smoke. My buddy who used to race frantically reached for the fire extinguisher. I wasn't nearly as concerned.

If there is interest in a group buy we can set-up a promotional price on pre-orders…

As a friend of mine who drives big rigs cross country told me one time, "There is a reason Kenworth doesn't use disc brakes. Because the clamping force can not equal that of pushing outward."

I have thought of giving the X-brake a try on my Disco, but feel the percentage of effectiveness can not justify the price.

Would be interested in a group buy on the TF's as long as they weren't more than the X-Eng ones.

Why would you ever want a disc for a parking brake? Surface area AND leverage problem.

I have one on one of my RRC's and prefer the drums. Both hold well enough and have never failed. but at anything over 2-3mph's the X-Brake shutters and makes a horrid sound when applied.
