I have Manual Drum breaks in mine, and I do lots of long distant shows with it, and lost of traffic and local city driving.

1.) Do not tailgate, or follow closely, your stopping distance is much greater.

2.) have the breaks properly adjusted, especially the fronts, if one tire grabs more then the other, it will pull you in that direction.

3.) as mentioned above, watch out in wet weather.


over all, be carful, you'll get used to it quickly, and know what to expect.
