Default Mugen MBX-5 build question?

Okay, so I'm stuck on the first step in the instructions. Pretty bad eh? It says to use "rubber glue" to put the brake pads on with. What is rubber glue, and where do you buy it?

Thanks, Ron

Don't use any glue.

Most guys ditch the rubber pads and steel discs and then use the TTR option brake discs, craddocks, or Avid RC Indos with just the metal calipers.

Best regards,

Best regards,
x2 the pads can become unglued when fuel , dirt and what ever else might get into contact with them. plus they work badly when nitro gets on them.

here are some examples of what to use. you wont need the pads glued on the calipers with these and they are more consistant and require less maintaining

Negative people. He only asked what to use. Ron_J only wants to build his new car.

I use a product called Kwik Grip. It works fine.

if you do use the original parts, make sure you sand the calipers and pads with a fine grit sandpaper in the areas in which you will be gluing....then clean them with isopropyl alcohol (or denatured alcohol)

If I opted for these "Avid RC Indos". Do I just eliminate the brake disk guides that fasten onto the bottom of the center diff brackets?

Thanks, Ron
