It's been a long time since drum brakes appeared on cutting-edge race cars. I see no reason not to use them on my car though; light, decent handbrake, no issues with wheel/brake interface. Now, I know that its difficult to argue that drum brakes can look sexy but when everything is either new or refurbished - including fresh zinc plating and powdercoat - I think they look pretty ace.
Dave has virtually finished building-up the rear axle now so that can go in pretty soon.
I've only had the chance to make some very subtle additions to the car: a water pipe here, a stabilised oil pressure sender there. I've been thinking about the control cables again though. The clutch cable at the pedal-end has been sorted for a while. The throttle cable at the throttle-body-end is now in hand. Two down, two to go then.
I need to knuckle down and deal with the wiring. I have to admit that I've been putting it off.
