Attach bubble wrap to front bumper ?

I don't think disc brakes exist for it.

how about this brake kit from VERTIGO PERFORMANCE. 3 carbon fiber pads means 4 contact points instead of 2
and you can buy it from here..

Hmm that tripe brake set seems like a decent idea, cheap enough to try out anyway. I'd go for the disk brakes but sheesh $300....

And btw, that brick wall picture made my day :P

Just removing the spring that is used on the linkage to apply the brakes, and replace it with an equal length of fuel tubing will make a large difference.
