Thanks everyone she is still running ok, the paint has got damaged here and there after a few incidents on the Holland run :-)  the controller works fine and top speed is around 26 MPH but don't know how long the gearbox will last  Ive fitted Brass planetary gears in it and it runs fine but I make sure I don't thrash it to much  only open the throttle up when I've got some good momentum up  I would like to fit a better rear brake system when they go up for sale again  and might change to gel battery's to get a longer range  but not sure if they will . ;D

Hi there Scot not sure if the one you mean but I do have the rear brake systems .What you get is the disc / caliper and the axle fitting sleeve + a new axle bearing

.

 as you will see I fit the brake system on top of the alloy plate ..
