current brake upgrade for +2 Elan

PostPost by: kneedham » Sun Jan 28, 2024 2:49 pm

MIO engineering website does not seem to exist anymore.
Does anyone know of a current brake upgrade particularly for the back and handbrake?
I'm running 14 inch minilights on standard hubs.

If you have any pictures or other information on the HiSpec conversion I would be grateful if you could share them here.

What’s wrong with original setup, with modern pads I’ve had no issues in race and rallying and Elan.

I did it on a previous project as I had no rear calipers to start with, the hi spec were a lot lighter too
