any one converted their brakes to quad style?
For the same force on the pads, will the braking improve theoretically by double? Any problems with such modifications?

using quad brakes with Hitec Digital Titanium Gears is definitely very satisfactory. even if at high speed, the stock brake pads holds all the 4 disc in full. you can just hear your tires scream " eeerrrrrrrrrk!!!! hehehe even on pave cement road!. i took one brake disc off to lessen braking power at my rear, still it's the same. maybe all you need is a digital titanium gear servo.

IF you guys are having troubles with braking on the K car , use the stock sp2 disc with K Factory pads, the car will stop great ! Also for your rear hub carriers , use Mugen Pro-Spec units with the Mugen outer camber link ends
and K factory hinge pins. You will never have a loose hub again!!
And the rear just became unreal ajustable !! TRy it out I am sure you will love it !

thanks guys. I'm using a 13kg servo. I was toying with the idea as I've spare brake disc and pads. I might just try it out when I re-build the diffs the next time.

guys, let me share with you on the track that I play. The layout of the track can be changed. The owner is creative to re-layout the track for each race.

Hope you enjoy my "un-professional" driving.
