Troy, I accepted the conventional wisdom and advice from Carey and did not originally build Natalie with rear disc brakes. I locked them up a lot. Then, I had the opportunity to drive Jack's car in Arkansas in the mountains. What a difference.
The summer of 2012 I had a couple of near misses. My car accelerates faster than people are expecting and is closer than it appears due to the size....and my driving style has created a few situations.
Last winter, Carey installed rear disc brakes and a bigger master cylinder on Natalie. She stops quicker, straighter, with far less locking up.
It's one of the things I scrimped on in the beginning, but seat time changed my mind.
