Wowza! A little TOO much uptravel I'd say. At that rate, your buggy just becomes a self-propelled chassis-grinding tool.

Question: would it be wise to put a small piece of fuel tubing at the bottom of the shock shaft to prevent the car from bottoming out so badly?

Hi,

Question about the stock brakes (steel rotors with steel calipers and blue pads):

After racing last weekend my front brake performs unevenly.

When the motor idles, the rotor can spin freely (with approx. 0.2mm clearance), but gets caught between the pads once in a while. Also, when actually applying the brake, it shows uneven brake performance; something like little grip for 1/4 turn of the rotor, tight grip for the next 1/4 turn and so on.

I had changed the rotor already, but same thing after just one race. Rotors, calipers and pads are pretty new. Can it be that the screws that hold the calipers are threaded into the plastic at an angle?

Any other ideas what could be the cause of this?

Thanks a lot,
Frank

Get better Fiber disk brakes...Screw the pads and reset the gap and ur good to go...Also cleaning the pads and actual discs with sandpaper is a good idea....but if they get REAL dirty 1 weekend..make sure to Recheck the gap as when u sand them they obviously get thinner.

Also check the brake cam lever bushings. If they wear out, it makes your brakes inconsistent.
