Default 8ight 2.0 Brake/Throttle Linkage

Had a miserable night racing last night. Brakes were sticking a bit while letting off throttle sending me end over end over every jump. The books says to set both rods 2.8mm from the rod end. This setting is completely useless.

Here's what I have done.

The answer to that is simple. I think you're a tool, and I wanted to piss you off. Is that the answer you was looking for hot shot?

The black pads are thicker just back out the caliper screws you should have a slight opening your setup now is too close. After you adjust put your car on a stand press throttle and brakes between that check your drive train by spinning the wheel hex there should be no binding.

Appreciate that Jay. I got it going a few hours ago but wasn't sure why the manual was off. Good to know for future reference that pads are different thickness.

Thanx

I was referring to Step C-06... I got a little flustered, and posted in the wrong section. Bernard was TOTALLY out of line. He spent his energy coming at me the wrong way when he could have answered a simple question. No biggie... Gen 3 tray is installed and racing tomorrow night.

Thanx for the help guys

If that little comment ruffled your feathers you must get in a lot of fights. Glad you got it all worked out.

You mad sweetie? I think it's pretty clear who the douche bag is here.

Listen here, Bernard.... You're not the authority around here. OK cookie?
