Anders,

Welcome to the forum!! Your solution is very much needed here! I’m looking forward to implementing it myself in 2021.

Also I don’t understand why some on here are pushing other people’s kits and demanding that we contact them outside this thread. If their kit is so amazing why don’t they start their own thread? Nobody here is advocating stealing anyone’s ideas... got your own solution? good for you! Anders is a guy who designed and made his own kit and is offering the rest of us the details. If you’re here to make a profit from
Your own kit then go start a thread for it, and stop polluting this thread.

For all the bitching I did about the original thread at least the P-30 info was free!! Hinting around but posting nothing substantial regarding someone else’s (Randy) mysterious kit while saying you need to strictly contact them offline??? That’s some nonsense. If their kit is that great I’ll buy it.....but if it’s that great then why can’t you tell me more about it? . show us a link to their website selling it... if it’s great then show us a picture or two... why all the secrecy and whatnot? Nobody is asking Randy for part numbers or trying to copy or steal his work... if he can’t show us his work that’s his problem. He can start a thread with no pictures and no part numbers if he wants to. No offense Randy... none of this is personal.

Look I’m sure Randy is a nice guy, and I know nothing about his kit.... but the posts here in this thread tell me... nothing.... about... his.... kit... so why doesn’t Randy start a thread about his kit? I’d love to read about and see pictures of it... but withholding info doesn’t help randy or any of us.. in fact it’s the very opposite of the problem with the P30 solution; it’s far too little information. This thread is about sharing information about 1.5 ton big bolt front disc brake conversions. If you want a thread that withholds such information, then please start a thread about withholding 1.5 ton big bolt front disc brake information.

First, I’m not a past or future customer of Randy Domeck dba Indianapolis Fabrications. I do not personally know him. He does have a website and posts access to it with every post he does. I don’t understand why, if you have questions about his product, you just don’t give him a call instead of trying to drag him through the mud. I bet he would be willing to answer any questions you have short of providing part numbers. As for starting his own thread about the kit, well, probably very limited interest which makes it not worth the effort. Making these “Kits” is not his primary business. BTW, the contact off-line is due to the no buying/selling policy outside the Swap Meet Forum.

Second, the original thread you refer to as no longer being credible is in fact archived by being made a “Sticky Thread” and locked so no one can add additional posts.

It’s time to move on. Time for someone to make the necessary parts, document, photograph and publish instructions and a parts list. Bet there is plenty of folks out there in Stovebolt land with the necessary skills and equipment to do it.

It is obvious that Tony292 has an axe to grind so I offer the following suggestion. Contact the site owner editor@stovebolt.com and vent your frustrations to him. He and only he has the power to offer you a solution.

I don’t have any axe to grind nor am I dragging Randy’s name through the mud. I said I’m sure he’s a nice guy, maybe with a great kit but who really knows if it’s all gotta be hush hush...how is that “dragging his name through the mud”?

**** if I wanted to drag his name through the mud I’d say his kit sucks, it’s terrible, don’t buy it.... I never said anything like that.

This thread is about sharing information... and you seem to be very against that. That’s not my problem it’s yours. Like I said before if you want to start a thread about withholding information on big bolt disc brake conversions then go ahead and start one... nobody is stopping you. If you have anything more to say then please contact me off this thread. PM me and stop polluting what was w a great thread with people sharing information that greatly helps others. That’s what this site is about, at least I thought it was.

So, a brake intended to slow down (not necessarily stop) a round track race car that weighs less than a fourth as much as the truck it's on is somehow an "improvement" over a drum brake that was engineered to handle full gross weight loads (or more likely an overload)? Whatever the OP has been smoking must be some primo stuff!
LOL!

It has to be better than the original huck drums that need constant adjustment... as long as it works better I don’t care.

That's the problem- - - -it won't work better. The leverage of the large radius of the big wheels and tires and the inertia of the weight of the truck will make that puny little disc brake far less effective than the original drum system. You'll need a disc 3-4 inches larger in diameter, and a caliper with much more swept area just to break even- - - -or maybe a 3000 PSI hydraulic system to apply pressure to the existing caliper. Then the pads will wear out about once a month. The laws of physics are not "suggestions".

These wilwood rotors are 11.75 inch. p30 rotors are 12.5 inch. I think 11.75 is plenty for what I’m going to use my truck for. You use might be different and that’s ok.
