Guest imflyer2 Posted October 3, 2008 Share Posted October 3, 2008 Just to let anyone out there flying a factory built Jab I lost my brakes on roll out after landing on my first Xctry in a brand new 230. This plane has less than 60 hrs including ferry time. The plastic fluid tubing was rubbing on the disc and blew out when I applied the brakes after touch down. Fortunately I had lots of room. I don't understand how this could have been missed during inspections. A 1/4 turn on the 90 deg inlet would have prevented this. I do have to say that without the wheel fairings it would have been easier to spot and although I've check it out during pre-flight I apparently didn't look close enough either. The plane is a fun little craft but attention to details are not their strong point. This one could have bit someone in the _ss. Jess Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
