X-eng Xbrake group buy #3

Hey everyone!
I talked to Justin at Lucky8 yesterday and if we can get another 10 people to commit he will do another group buy for us.

Sounds like same price as before $380 per kit plus the cable $18 if needed. And then plus shipping to you.

Let's see if we have 10 people again for this deal.

If we can get 10 people to commit, then we can call Justin with our credit cards and he will charge us accordingly. Make sure to mention its for the d90 source Xbrake buy #3.

I figure we see how much interest there is in a third buy before we bombard Justin with our personal info.
If you are in message me the following and I will compile a list:
Type of application
Number of brakes wanted
Cable required

Justin chime in if I am missing anything.
Thanks guys,
Pete

Thought I might revisit this since I'm still in the market and absolutely nobody responded last time as seen in the post above.
Is there enough interest to start the ball rolling on another group buy?
If so I will see if Justin is game again.
Thanks,
Pete

Xbrake is for LT230 not for the transmission. Am I missing something?

Does this group buy for the the disc and the kit?

X-brake is the transmission brake or also called the hand brake.

Comes as a kit.

I get that but it replaces the drum on the Tcase right? Not on the transmission?

I thought the disc was separately sold.

I'm pretty sure the disc is included in the kit.
Here's a how-to viddy with a British guy doing the install on his 90 that is even customized with British Truck Nutz...doesn't get better than that!

Funny, I was under the impression that these things don't work as well as the stock setup... There are some comments regarding this on this board....

I was always taught that a drum brake made a better parking brake. Tis easier to push outwards than to clamp down. A trucker who raced cars taught me that, whether it's an old myth or not.

I'm sure there are exceptions. Wet drums don't stop a vehicle as well as disc do.

I still think I want an X-brake though.

Happy with mine too. Nothing wrong with the LR parking brake, if actually is a very good design, but the X brake gives a little better clearance, a chunk of weight is removed, & for those w/5 speeds a slightly noticeable increase in peddle response (that could be in my head).

It made sense at the time (previous group by) and it's a good piece of kit.

Thinking about picking one up to fit it on new to me LT230 case.

Sad thing is these things are more expensive than the thing that it goes on.

I like mine. Very clean and easy to install too. It's yellow zinc so it will very much outlast the factory setup. Yes, it's tied in with your trans and a thing to keep in mind is that when on an incline you can expect the truck to slip back into place slightly as with any transmission application.

Hey guys,
There was only a few people that were interested so I will not pursue this.
On a side note, ordering direct from foundry4x4 is pretty close to what the group price was a couple years back due to the exchange rate.

Just got done with the install. Make sure you get the cable with the brake because the one for my 94 was different. But thanks to the forum I got one with the brake so it went in really fast. I ordered from foundry 4x4 and it was here in a few days for 275gbp shipped.

Also don't know if you know about these tools but it makes the driveshaft a breeze to take off

What is the driveshaft tool called, what size is needed and what is the cost?

Thanks,

Mike
