Talking brakes

i run my front's tighter then the rear . this makes the buggy push the front into the turns and the rear will slide into the turns .

i agree, the back can't theoretically slide around unless the rear is locked up. however, i think that the front tires are locking up and the car is spinning out, almost like drifting into a turn. that will give the same effect as locking up the rear.

so you only have to use the metal brake plate with the ofna fiber disks?

Default ohhhh

here is how my set up works ..

like a real car would . i guess pivot is a better word to use the slide ..

when the front tires are locked and the rears are still in motion

the power will transfer to the wheels that are still moving
forceing the front into the turn .




as for fiber disc pads you use just steel pads ..

Talking almost forgot

i almost forgot ..

also next time you have your diff plate off..

drop some lube in the diff mounts where the brake cam turns ..

also on the back of the cam that hits the back of the pad ..

tends to get a flat spot .. and stays locked up ..

as i sit here putting a jammin together i have sold ..

it's been sitting a while a few mins and some drops off diff lube the brakes are awesome on the return ..

i use diff oil or a good shock oil as long as it's silicone based it wont come off so easy ..

i do this when ever i clean the beast up .. nitro clean tends to clean too much some times ..

so put some oil where the brake cam sits in the diff mount, and on the surface where the brake cam contacts the plate? what about on the screws that hold the brake pads on?


has anybody tried just using two brake disks, one front and one rear? using the stock units?

Default just the cams and back of the pads

just a drop of oil on the cams and the back of the pad ..

and on the diff mount where the cam pivot's

single pads you wont have enough braking power ..
