Disclosed is a system for regulation of torque demanded from a prime mover of a vehicle, which prime mover responds to the torque demanded by delivering a dynamic torque. This dynamic torque is related by a gear ratio to a dynamic wheel torque which a power train comprising the prime mover imparts to at least one tractive wheel of the vehicle. The system regulates the torque demanded in such a way that a difference between the torque demanded and the dynamic torque is actively limited by employing feedback of the dynamic torque at an earlier time. The torque demanded at a time (t) for the regulation is limited to a maximum value which exceeds the dynamic torque at an earlier time by an offset value. The torque demanded is continuously varied according to the dynamic torque, so that power train oscillations in the vehicle are reduced in number and/or magnitude.

A carrier and mount assembly for a heavy vehicle disc brake. The assembly includes a carrier having a first location formation formed therein, a mount having a second location formation formed therein, wherein the second location formation is aligned with the first location formation, and wherein the carrier is mounted to the mount via two or more fasteners that extend in a direction substantially parallel to a direction of insertion or removal of a friction element into or from the carrier. There is also a locator positioned in the first and second location formations to enable the carrier and mount to be assembled in the correct position, wherein the locator is at least a close fit to the first and second location formations.
