no i have a little bit lol mostly, in the rear on the truggy i dont want that push that the front brake gives you.

most of time it lands fine, without using the brake in the air i just have to remember to only use, a amount of throttle i need to just clear a jump. and i do sometimes blip the throttle in the air.

yeah but at bigger tracks with bigger jumps i would add a bit more brake to that front.

Thanks, I'm excited to run it this weekend. I love the Go Motor(GX-5R). I pulled it out of one of my SC8 trucks to put in the RC8B. It screams and very easy to tune. I ran this motor in my SC8 last weekend up against a bunch of truggys. They couldn't believe a Corr Truck could woop up on them

Yep I was smiling all day and they just kept talking about it. Best part is I had way more to give them, after every 2 tanks ran back to back the motor was only 215 degrees and that was with the 7.0 insert.
