    a couple of things need help on?

    hi guys i got a 91 j 80 sport and the red brake disc with the shoes keeps flashing so a few seconds then going off but brakes are fine could it be another thing?

    and how the hell can i get more power from the lump of monkey metal sat under the bonnet?!?!?!?
    im sick and tired of being beaten straight line by bloody vauxhall vectras and such bags of cr@p!!!!!

    any help would be helpfull!!!! lol

    Is your car a 16V model?

    If yes, it sounds like a hydraulic servo problem. Does the light flash after a few applications of the brakes?

    If an 8V model, it could be worn pads, or low hydraulic fluid level.

    As for more power, easier to give advice, if you give more detail, like engine type / code?

    Would be 3A / ABK / 6A / ACE.

    The flashing light will be brake pad sensor check the sensors connected to the pad

    More power .induction kit.stainless full exhaust system 2.5"....retard the timing but that can cause damage!!
