I went through the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve recently and on one of the downhills I smelled brakes and had a very scary experience when I had almost no stopping power.

The brakes went "spongy" and there was smoke coming from the calipers when I stopped to clean my trousers.

The discs had been skimmed and new pads fitted 500km ago.

When they cooled, they were back to normal again.

I have an alucab and load bed drawer system in, so it is a heavy machine as is.

So I guess it overheated !

Should I be worried? Coz I am!

Should I upgrade? If so, what do you recommend?
