Chevrolet LS3 Engine with Tarox Brakes

ECD recently released its highest spec Defender to date, Project Beast, a Land Rover Defender 110 with a Chevrolet LS3 engine and satin Corris Grey paint. Never being satisfied, the East Coast Defender team challenged Beast’s system even further by enhancing its braking system and suspension to handle the power of the LS3.

From the discussion table to Beast’s axels, Beast’s new braking system, the Tarox Sport Braking Kit, is hand assembled and is made up of the highest quality billet alloy. The Tarox braking kit offers a huge amount of extra stopping power but can also reduce un-sprung weight and offer better pedal feel and modulation. The two piece discs feature heat treated billet steel rotors and separate alloy bells which results in an incredibly strong component with the lowest possible overall weight.

Custom made and fine tuned, the Tarox brake kit maximizes not only braking performance but Beast’s overall performance on the road and through tough terrain. With the Tarox 8 POT kit in the front and the Tarox 6 POT kit in the rear, the braking system is one aspect of Beast that makes it a truly bespoke vehicle.

“When you have as much power in a Land Rover Defender 110 as Beast, it really comes down to needing brakes that are not only massive and powerful, they also need to be top of the line in quality, and the Tarox kit exceeds that.” – Fab Up Bay technician, Jordan.
