"... by definition always used on axles that have independent suspension"
I'm confused by the statement in the article: "Inboard brakes are by definition always used on axles that have independent suspension." Don't most cars now-a-days have independent suspension? If true then wouldn't inboard brakes be common? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Deicas (talk • contribs) 18:21, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Can somebody add some detail to this article?
I have a decent understanding of cars and this article does nothing to explain to me what inboard brakes are. I've worked on cars and replaced both drum and disc brake pads but am no better off having read this article than before I read it.Es330td (talk) 14:12, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
And what are the disadvantages?
According to the current entry, inboard brakes have numerous advantages but no listed disadvantages, leading one to believe they should immediately be put on all vehicles. I don't know much about them, except they can affect the anti-dive/anti-squat characteristics of the suspension (good or bad, I don't know).188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:21, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
Not the Toronado.
The Oldsmobile Toronado never had inboard brakes. The company may have planned to have them at one time but the feature didn't make it to production. The picture of the chassis in this old Motor Trend article clearly shows drum brakes at all four wheels. http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/classic/112_6512_toronado_engineering/viewall.html Bizzybody (talk) 08:24, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
