Default Matco super brakes

talked to JD yesterday, ordered new matcos and nonleaking innertubes

bought the extra duty ones even though he said i didn't need them, will shield well and have door to open while not in flight to cool through convection.

just 1 AMU

good info though, said my current new on the plane for many years brakes are in demand on RV's, will try and sell there

Looks like the only tubes that don't leak are the Michelins that were made in the last 2 or so years.

All others slowly leak
