brake caliper



Axle started at 1370 lbs and is now down to 990 just from taking off the calipers, rotors, and caliper brackets. Just the bolts holding the brakets on weighed 18 lbs.

They most likely use the spider gear planetaries. What was the price?

Nope. 4 pinion planetaries. Axletech 4000s . They put these in military Cougars and some other mine sweeping vehicles.

I put em on my tab down at Harry's Speed Shop.

There might be a lot of these axles showing up as the military swaps the solid axles to independent in a lot of the MRAP's. Definitely beefy axles.

Unless they've been blasted and repainted, they are. If it's the new waterborne stuff, it's a non issue.

I will design and fabricate a pinion brake setup. Already have it designed. Should work excellent.

They are brand new so not blasted and painted. Whats wrong with the paint thats on them? Can't I just paint over the dessert tan?

Thanks for the info

Hey Rob. Time for somethin different and out of the box. Always wanted to biuld somethin with planetaries. These are a little heavier but alot stronger than the dueces that we usualy run. 45 degree steering with a 60 inch tire is hard to beat also.

You make that sound like it is an easy swap ... are they built to accept either or something?

I think some of those rigs may definatly be designed to accept ifs or solid axles. The axletech website shows the complete ifs units that look like they would bolt rite in.

CARC is for quick and effective decon of military equipment. The older version was full of VOCs, but the DOD has be transitioning to the newer formulation called WD-CARC.

Thanks for the info and the link. Sounds like it's less toxic than it used to be. I'm gonna still take some precautions when I work on it.
