A great solution for those of us with limited supplies of cool peices and a love for offroading!
About this creation
I was inspired to make these 'things' that look like brakes as a cheap and easier to-aquire-pieces-to-build solution to the problem of getting lego trucks to have brake calipers.
Cheap and Easy
This is so cheap to make because it only requires the easy to find hub-cap. This solution can be used with other tire sizes and you can easily change the color 'calipurs' to fit what you like. To assemble simply place little round 1x1s in the groove in the wheel. Then place the hub cap directly on top with a cross axle running through the wheel. tighten and sit it up to place it on your vehicle.
Like it, please feel free to use this solution, just let me know because i want to see what you have done with this useful solution.
Also please remember, if you use this give me credit on your page, thanks.
