Binding brakes

Does anyone else experience brakes binding even after overnight parking in garage?

Is there a solution eg parking in gear and not having the handbrake on?

Yes, I find that. It doesn't bother me since previous cars I've had did it. I don't think it's a major problem...

I've just started leaving the handbrake off and parking in gear becuase of exactly that reason.

Now just have to make sure I pop it back in neutral before turning the engine over and launching through the wall of my garage...

Must admit I've always left my cars in gear when parking them purely for redundant systems reasons (if one system fails, the other will hold the car). Old habits die hard...

Is that Trevor, the collectors car...ie you keep having to stop to collect bits that have fallen off?

Noony - TVR is short for Trevor... TreVoR

The point is that the guy who started TVR named it after himself. His name was Trevor something-or-other (I can't remember what).

At least this is what I have been led to believe. It could, of course, be an urban myth.

It's true I used to live near the factory years ago in Bispham near B'pool. Ionce made some blocks of wood that went inside the mirrors. Now that's what I call hand made.
