Hillman Imp front disc brake kits

These have now been fitted on both 12" standard size rims and also the larger 13"
size, tests have been done with a commercial brake supplier.

Imp disc brakes as fitted to the 12" standard steel rim size 

The main Test conclusions are:

- the Discs do not have the initial "snatch" of the twin leading shoe Drums. (Mintex described this as a "self servo" effect)
- the Discs can pass the Industry Standard 15 High Speed Stops with ease.

- The Drums overheat and fade on the first stop. And the subsequent 14 !

How easy can this be?

The choice is clear I think.
