New gearbox and racing brakes for a Rover

Brakes really are you best friend in any race car. For safety we always ensure that the brakes are 100% reliable. This often means new cylinders and brake lines. In this instance we replaced the original type master cylinder for an AP Racing item which might be more expensive but is rebuild-able and is design for the rigors of circuit racing. We have also fitted new discs and racing brake pads and machined true the rear drums. As well as the brakes we have replaced the 4 speed overdrive gearbox with a non-overdrive unit. Parts for these gearboxes are hard to come by so we’ve had to build the gearbox using the best parts from all 4 boxes we had. Should be marked improvement for Brands Hatch this weekend.
