Research on Brakes for Jaguar XJ6
Back in the 1950s, sports cars were hot and fast two-seater convertibles, and sedans were nothing but family cars. Then Jaguar broke the mold with its Mark 1, the first sedan to pack the punch of a sports car. That was followed by the even sportier Mark 2. Jaguar boasted the only performance sedan in the late 1950s, but it's an everchanging, dog-eat-dog car world, and Jaguar has struggled to maintain a place in the market for the last 20 or 30 years. The Jags of the 1980s were plagued with problems. Often underdeveloped, they were shoved onto the market before they were ready for the dogfight. The XJ6, launched in 1994, was the start of the Jaguars comeback, with an injection of some $500 million by Ford. The Jaguar XJ was the first XJ produced entirely under Ford ownership, and can be considered an evolution of the outgoing XJ40 generation. Like all previous XJ generations, it features the Jaguar independent rear suspension arrangement. The design of the X300 placed emphasis on improved build quality, improved reliability, and a return to traditional Jaguar styling elements.
Jaguars have a reputation for unreliability, and while it was mostly justified with the models that preceded the X-300 it is no longer fair to label them with the troublesome tag. Ford spent a large amount of money getting the production sorted out so the cars are well built when they leave the factory and not the troublesome ones they once were. It's important, however, that they are regularly serviced. That goes for any car, but if you want your Jaguar to run smoothly and not breakdown on you, keep it well serviced.
One of the most notable aspects of the Jaguar XJ6 Series 1 through Series 3 sedans and the XJ-S coupes is the inboard rear brake setup. On these cars, the rear brake calipers and rotors are not located out by the rear wheels, as they are on 99% of all cars, but are located alongside the differential.
What are the inboard brakes advantages?
A larger brake disc can be used without it being inside the wheel. With less rotating mass, the wheel can be smaller. Inboard brakes have improved roll centers, improved inertia, and improved front brake cooling.
What are the inboard brakes disadvantages?
Their design makes it difficult to replace the rear rotors, in most cases it necessitates the dropping of the rear sub frame to accomplish rear rotor replacement. Second, the placement of the rear brake calipers puts them in close proximity to the exhaust pipes as they kick up over the rear axles. This, along with the lesser airflow under the car coupled with the normal heat generated by the brakes in operation, places an elevated heat load on the rear calipers.
