A stately old lady

Once again I’ve had an uncommon vehicle to test , this time an Alvis TA21, despite her weight of 1500 approx kg, if she lifted her skirts she could do 100mph.

All was going well until she had to have her brakes tested in the roller brake tester, whilst all the efficiencies were good, unfortunately owing to lack of regular use she suffered from front brakes badly imbalanced. 71% imbalance is the highest I believe I have ever seen, and in this case dangerous inasmuch as it pulls towards the oncoming traffic
