    Relocating brake to driveshaft
    Posted by uncle vinny on Monday, January 5, 2015 7:24 PM

    I am considering relocating the brake on my 97 ultra asphalt drag sled from the jackshaft to the drive shaft.  I have talked to a few people regarding this.  Some systems require machining the drive shaft round where the hub sits and machining a keyway.  Other designs have the brake hub just sliding over the shaft without machining it round and allowing the hub/disc to float on the shaft.  I have a 1-1/8th inch titanium drive shaft and could obviously use either set up.  Was a little concerned with using an aluminum hub that floated because of wear issues.  Was also told that some of the setups with a key way and key can wear and fail as well.  Any advice would be appreciated.

    An easy set up is bolting the disc solid on the drive shaft with a hex hub and using a dual oposed piston brake caliper so the pads can self adjust to the disc location.if you need help or parts feel free to call and i can help you out. thanks todd dyna-tek performance
