Hey V12,

The logic behind that is that the rear wheels are driven on a go-kart. and the way the clutch system works there is still some power comming thru after u leave the accelerator... hence more braking power needed on the rear wheels.
Most of the go karts found at tracks in this country dont even have brakes on the front wheels, just one disc on the rear axle.

cheers

This one has a disc for each rear wheel. Dont u think thats too much for a "petrol generator" kart???

I have seen radio control 5cc cars that have disc brakes all around!

It all depends on the stopping power of the discs and the balance u wanna make between stopping power and extra weight of an additional disc.

cheers

HI Dippy, where is garage lane? I have just moved to Santa Cruz (Mumbai) and am loking for a good mechanic for my 1989 Audi 80. It been idle for the past 15 years and nature has gotten the better of it. Would be much obliged if you could recomend me one. Sorry for being off topic.

Hey navin

Do you know Juhu Garden on linking rd? Take a left from juhu garden and as you go straight you come to a junction. Take a left from there and all those garages are in a row.. As soon as you come onto that road, the first garage on ur right is TEAM MOTOR WORKS' Its written in large letters. The owner Suraj Bhalla is my friend. He a specialist in imported cars, automatics and fuel injections. You can tell him that Deepankar told you about him. I'm sure he'll be glad to help you out...

Do buzz me if you need any help

Cheers

ive seen that mustang quite a few times there..definitely a 1964 model. i dont know about this..but 1964 models offered with a V6? i thought that they were offered only with four bangers, inline sixes and V8 engines. maybe i got my facts all wrong. what i do remember is sometime
back when i was visiting the USA, i managed to get myself a ride in A Mustang GT 350. A pretty rare car even for the Pony country, and it was driven by a girl, a pretty good looking redhead too. but somehow i kept paying more attention to the car. The shelby GT 500s are definitely more catching though.
that mustang was one fast car, close ratio gearing, gobs of torque and power upwards of if i can remember 2000 rpm, and was probably pulling a 100 kph in high 5s or low 6s...could be lower though.
but what i hated, was that it handled like an absolute pig.

Hey ported Head,

The Shelby GT series figures on my list of top 10 cars EVER!! Dont blame ya for keeping the redhead as a second in the priority list. Only a Mustang lover could do that.

Good write-up. Was it white with blue stripes?

au contraire dude.. do excuse my french ..it's just not there... the GT 350 had white stripes on blue paint..sort of like sky blue. a fairly good combo... but id prefer the sort of colour/stripe combo they had on the Gt 500 in gone in 60 secs.

Ouch, I personally prefer the original GT350 color combination.

Road version

Great pictures GTO . Hey ported heah it is a 1964 Mustang with a 6 cylinder engine 2.8 litres to be exact. The engine just roars when it runs... GTO can vouch for that...

Cheers

Oh yes, Dippy made me listen to the car when he was in it. That guy was absolutely flooring it!! It really sounded like a full-blooded monster

Nothing really comes close to the sound of a nicely tuned american muscle car burbling along. Even the current Gen Mustang in V8 form sounds just so amazing.

i just wanted to make sure that it was a V6. for some reason it seemed a little strange. the current gen mustangs just dont cut it for me, but i can't wait for the new one. i like the idea of ford going back to it's core cars. first the GT , now the mustang.

Yeah Phead the new Mustang has its design lines along the old one. Gives it a retro look with new age styling.. Certainly worth waiting for

Cheers
