I'm totally oblivious to how this is done. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Gary
parking brake? or pinion mounted a la rockwell conversions?
I have seen a friends mud racer that has a ~1/4" plate welded to the rear yoke on the 205 and he runs a common chev caliper on it as his only braking.
for parking High Angle uses their flange style output yoke as the mounting point for a laser cut rotor.
I am thinking about looking to use the ujoint mounting straps as the attachment for a rotor as I am unsure I would want to weld to the yoke
that what you had in mind?
want some links to calipers?
m j, I am thinking of rear disc brakes but not sure about the new things I'm hearing about T/C rotors, calipers, etc. I guess this is the same basic concept used on the military axles only attached to the T/C. Right now I'm trying to figure out a cost effective way to have rear discs and still have a reliable e-brake system too. From what I read, the caddy e-brake system isn't highly regarded by many as being adequate on large trucks. Any further info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Gary

They make a e-brake kit for a 205 but you have to run a 1-ton CV to use it.
