    Going to be interesting to see how this brakes and whether the back end becomes prone to skipping around under heavy braking! :)

    Got 320mm discs coming for the rear. Suspect the fronts will lock before the back starts skipping and leaving the floor. May need a bias valve don't know yet

    If it becomes prone to it, the ABS *should* catch it assuming nothing has changed, but it'll still feel unstable.

    Will be interesting, non the less!

    It should already have those reducer/balancers as standard.

    Yes its standard on all Freelanders. Its a reducing valve under the hood(RH inner wing) which prevents lock up of the rear wheels.

    The Freelander is very heavy, and is under braked as far as I'm concerned compared to my old Yeti.

    This upgrade should improve things big time.

    LOL, you wanna try stopping in a MGF or TF with standard 240mm front discs, my Freelander stops brilliantly by comparison. I used to be scared someone in front would brake normally as that would be an emergency stop for me. AP 4 pots and 304mm discs fixed it though.

    Like that colour, think you're going to have to get wrapping to match all that armory on the front in with it though.
    I don't want to know probably, but how much did the car cost?

    May do the middle of the bonnet like the green one but don't plan on going as mad with graphics I want to use it as a car a bit more rather than advertising.
