    Hey, I just noticed that Jess (High Angle) is working on a shaft mounted parking/emergency disk brake like we were all talking about a short time ago. Looks like someone is listening! [​IMG] I hope it’s not too spendy...

    Got a link or a contact? I was gonna design and build an E-brake mounted off the back of my NP205, but if someone is coming out with a kit and it's reasonably priced, I'll just get the kit.

    I am talking with Jess (email) at the moment. I will be looking at the CV joint DL with the e-brake. I'll let you know how it goes.
    The questions I have - is the CV joint DL good for high freeway mileage? The article on the 80 deg. shaft said that it is a part time DL only. I need to verify that the regular setup
    is a good multi-purpose bullet proof unit.
    Any comments welcome - I will post replies here.
