  • Fitting the AP Racing Brakes on to the Escort Mk2

    The next step: front brakes! The Escort will be sitting on 13" wheels so we have gone for the largest AP Racing brake kit that will fit under the 13" wheel, the CP5219 4 pot caliper kit.

    All mounted up, ready for the wheels (will be a while until the Escort will be rolling, need to finish the rear axle first)
    This is the ultimate Escort Mk2 brake kit for tarmac rally / race for use with 13" wheels

  • RIX / AVO 3 Way adjustable front suspension for the Escort Mk2

    The first few bits for our Escort Mk2 project are now coming together, this week we have been putting together the front suspension. We are using AVO 3 way adjustable all round with the RIX Engineering front assembly which will be fully adjustable.1abvdfs

    The steering arm attaches under the alloy upright block and over the lower TCA pin. The alloy block then bolts on the the AVO leg, these are specially designed for the RIX setup. The kit is supplied with 4 types of special camber adjustment shims, giving 7 camber adjustments by simply undoing the bolt and replacing the shims.

    Bolted up to the shell, ready to fit the wheel hubs and brakes. Originally designed for the Safari rally, this is the strongest and most advanced setup currently available for the Mk1 / Mk2 Escort. The main advantage of this set up is the scrub radius position over the standard Escort setup, giving less tyre resistance and more grip. The tyre wear rate will be lower so softer tyres can be used.
