Beach Buggy General Help / Re: Break Disc,s

discs will make your wheels dirty as drums keep dust in.

Is that a good or bad point?  Wheels can easily be cleansed.  Drums fill with dust.

Neither just an observation as my wheels get dirty these days as they used to stay clean :D

the main reason I went to front discs on the daily was so they worked after being in large puddles. Very little to choose on efficiency but discs will make your wheels dirty as drums keep dust in.

Front and rear empty wide 5 setup.  2 psi residual pressure valve on the rear circuit.

Difference. 
  • No brake fade under hard lane driving.
  • Never need adjusting
  • Locks up really easy

Can't really state the difference over drug all round, when I got my buggy had disks on the front, but the callipers had been chewed by the wide 5 adapters the previous owner had fitted.  One of the rear drums was full of oil too.

My real reason for fitting is that I like the convenience of disks.  No adjustment and always easy to take off for other repairs.
