Nowadays, brake system is probably the most important system for vehicle. Most buggy cars have disc brakes on the rear wheels, and some have disc brakes on all four wheels. This is the part of the brake system that does the actual work of stopping the car. The main thing in the braking system is caliper, master cylinder, disc brake or rotor and the hose or piping. Research and comparison are done to make sure the flow of the project run smoothly. To design the suitable breaking system for Electric Buggy Car must depend on the speed the vehicle, maximum weight of baggage and weight driver and body. From the research that we get from the design before, for suitable these Electric Buggy Car breaking system to use is motorcycle RXZ/TZM breaking systems or Go Kart breaking system. The Motorcycle and Go Kart breaking system is simple and efficient for the Electric Buggy Car and easy to maintenance the brake and not complicated system. In this Electric Buggy Car we selected to use the motorcycle Yamaha 125Z Braking system because of the low cost of the part compared with the Go Kart Braking System. The most of the problem in this project is selected of the push rod because of the material cannot withstand the high force when the brake is applied. To overcome the trouble, modification and testing is the process of the recovered. Finally, the Braking System for the Electric Buggy Car can functionally with the best performance.
