Though I am using Matrix Concepts carbon fiber discs, they work really smoothly. My roller came with an aftermarket yellow discs, it didnt work that great to me until i ran the carbon fiber, it worked alot better.

Houston,

take this how you want but I'm just curious. If you are Kyosho ALL THE WAY (per your signature), then why are you building aftermarket Losi parts??

properly adjusted trims and not wrecking is the answer . i ran a 8b for about 3 hours of race time and found the brakes a little inconsistent thats why i am doing this .
