TheRecklessEngineer Posted June 12, 2006 Share Posted June 12, 2006 The brakes on my hybrid are s**t... I am driving the rangie brake system from a standard series pedal and servo unit. The pedal doesnt move very far, the servo is working, yet it takes an enormous effort to stop the thing! Im guessing that the whole force*distance thing is playing a part in this...running twin calipers from a master cylinder and pedal designed for drums and a small servo unit. So....how can I improve them? Things ive thought of so far.... 1) Chop up spare rangie pedal box and replace pedal and servo with rangie bits...but its going to be a b*****d to fit around steering column and bonnet (why I fitted the series pedal in the first place) 2) Try and fit larger servo to series pedal 3) Fit rangie servo and master cylinder to series pedal 4) Dual servo units? 5) Introduce a small amount of air into system to allow compressabilty and allow pedal to move further, therefore more help from servo..????!!! 6) Leave as is and use 2 feet on brake pedal 7) Give up and drink beer. Any more? Any opinions on these? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
