STRONGER FRONTAXLE KITS SOLVE BRAKING
PROBLEMS, TR3, TR4, TR4A, TR250, TR6
Race Car Solution Makes Your Street Car Stop Better
Triumph racers have long suffered from a baffling brake problem.  Their cars
might be in perfect condition with great brakes, but when they are driving very
hard, particularly on rough surfaces, the brake pedal sometimes goes right to the
floor when they really need to slow down.  The reason for this problem has been
diagnosed, and a cure has been found.
Triumph front stub axles are a bit flimsy.  If you don't believe me, remove one of your front
hubs, and then you will see what I mean.  Picture these axles when the car is running at speed on
curvy roads, especially ones with rough surfaces.  Those little axles flex like crazy under such
conditions.  When the axles flex, the brake discs wobble around pushing the pistons back into the
bores in the brake calipers.  Once the pistons have been pushed back, it takes a whole master
cylinder full of brake fluid to get them back out again, and the pedal goes to the floor.  Then, the
second pump slows the car.  But what if you don't have time to pump twice?!
This problem was solved on BMC cars, MGB, Austin-Healey, etc., at the factory by fitting
spacers between the front wheel bearings, but the Triumph factory just didn't recognize that there
was a problem.  Now, a U.S. race supplier produces spacer kits to solve the Triumph problem the
same way it was solved on BMC cars.  Awonderful kit is also produced that includes bigger,
stronger stub axles along with spacers.
