finally got sick of the front wheel shake after heavy long braking changed the rotors for slotted & holed & it is great, I always thought the rotors were distorting when hot. set the old ones up spun them & heated them up & they distort terribly & when they cool down back it shape.
hope this helps others
regards Vince

No a 4.2 TD manual patrol six wheeler that is often at its GMV of 4500kg & towing the same.(& it is legal) Its the second one I've had & over 600,000klms in the first & 200,000klms in this one the old 94 never had the problem & if you look back thru the forum there's been plenty of GU with this problem

Ok, then in that case .... maybe a suggestion -- i had seen on the Truck races that the big rigs actually have a water spray / jet set up that spray water direct onto the disks - This obviously helps to cool them - would not to be hard to rig up with a simple 12 v pump you can buy from any auto one or similar and a water resevoir

as the disks are hot - they water should not effect breaking as it will evaporate quickly ......

a cheap easy option to think about ????
