Yes, the ones in the SE are non-slotted solid steel, I havent ran the buggy yet i'm just finishing the build but i decided to use a lighter disk brake for less rotating mass but if the solid steel are good i'll go with those.


Thanks,

Thanks,
I totally hear you on the weight thing, it's always better to spin plastic than steel. Honestly though, that small amount of weight is so close to the centerline of the drivetrain, I don't think you will notice it. If you were to calculate the equal impact of weight on the tires, it would probably equal a few nobs on the AKA Enduro, or maybe 3 minutes run time of wear. If you use the steel disks, you also gain the advantage of the expensive phenolic semi metallic brake pads, which provide braking even when wet or splashed with fuel. The fiber type won't.

i am currently running the fiber disks and at my last race toys 4 tots at barona in the main my brakes faded 2 laps in not sure why unless at start of race the discs were splashed anyway i will have to go to the smooth disks with pads if this will provide no loss of brakes cost me good finish was fiddling with on the fly brake adjustments half the race

making radio adjustments during your race can definitely be a distraction

So what is the difference between the SE, TKI and TKI2? Sounds like just some hopup parts. Thanks
