Several years a go. I was shown a car with brakes on it. Then one that was controlled by air. I didn’t want to get into building a air system to have brakes. In Florida there was a car that had manual brakes. Wow That’s the way to go.
So I tried to make the brake system like that. It didn’t work. So I started to build my own system.
This was on my car that I built for the NMRA Merit Award.
Several modifications have been made to the braking to improve it.
