    Nothing that I've found Vince, there's few books out there on principles that are worth reading. Most of my knowldge is , as always, from hands on plus access to parts books showing OEM combinations and then experience of driving those vehicles and thinking " These brakes are crap "!

    I can give pointers on what you should be aiming for and what , in my experience, works in the real world.

    There's a couple of cursory articles I wrote years back in the tech section over at Uk Hotrods .

    The brake handbook, is quite good, as it discusses brakes for road and competition, and also gives methods of calculating what is needed to give the appropriate braking performance.

    Really only works well for disc brakes, as drums are difficult to calculate because of the self servo effects.

    Mine has a price tag of £10.95 on it, and was bought new some years ago, so you may have to check your favorite auction site for a cheaper used copy.
