Brake Band and Drum - 4in. Dia.
4" band brake
Product looks like it will do every thing I hoped it would.
Has been very easy to install and has worked great in a static test, I have not been able to road test these brakes yet as my !/2 scale 1906
Mack truck is not quite complete yet, just a couple more weeks and will be doing some road testing. Thanks for all the great products I have ordered, all have arrived in a very timely matter .

Go Cart brakes.
What can I say - they fit, and they slow the cart down. I have two new brakes installed on an older cart I rebuilt. One didn't align properly because of frame damage, so it squeals pretty good. That may go away as the band wears in...

Rubber brake band liner is trash
The rubber liner on the brake band is trash. The rubber comes right off after just a few brakings making the band useless and dangerous. You need to order brake bands with the real break liner material like cars have always used. I have not seen the better break liner materials on the Northern Tools Website. They need to sell the better brake bands and get rid of the rubber lined units. If you look at reviews for just the replacement band (#13661) other reviewers are saying the same thing about the rubber lining coming right out after just a few uses.

Decent drum, poor band
I had to remove the paint from the contact surface on the drum so it could work properly and the band only lasted a week before the spot welds came loose. The drum is still on my go-kart with another manufacturer's band. Overall, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
