Thanks to Sam & Nigel for always helping me out with my car. The 966 really accelerates hard and really sounds mean! I just hope I can learn to drive mean!

A few questions here:

I'm using the Xceed #103022 brake disk and I have a lot of play in between the brake pads on my 966.

The brake cam that rotates on 2 speed standoff came with a short allen screw in the bottom on it.

Should this screw be used in the brake cam?

How can I eliminate the excessive spacing with brake disks to ensure the brakes work properly?

Thanks.

In my experience there really isn't a clearance problem on the braking system. But, if you really need to, shims can be applied on the collars that the brake pads slide across.

Hi Nigelnuggets,

Thanks. Shims should help.

Did your brake cam come with a small screwed into it at the bottom.

The manual does not show any screw at all. I don't think I need to but just looking to make sure.

My brake cam has a screw in it also, to me it looks like its their to take some space out of the assembly. I have my car already built and i checked the brakes out and everything works perfectly fine with the screw!

The small allen screw is there to prevent the brake cam from over rotating back wards, it's there for precautions only, it will not interfere with the operation of the brakes at all.

As stated by Sam, the screw is to prevent the break to rotate the other way, and applying breaks while at full throttle....
it is an "aftermarket" screw.

I got everything to work. I had to make sure the pad was sliding over the bushing that holds it in place. After I did that I had no problem after testing it with my radio gear. Thanks.

Yep, this is a bit difficult when assembling, but be sure they move freely, or you don't have a brake at all.....
