I have my brakes set as harsh as I can get them without it spinning out and its definitely not enough. It spins out real easy if I jam on the brakes any more than I have it set right now. What do u guys suggest?

Thanks!

My mrx5 is a little weak on the braking I learned to just drive with it I was thinking option parts but I've Gotten mixed reviews about the Hopup brake pads some say the braking is weaker with them some say braking is stronger so I'm up in the air about purchasing the option pads but just driving has fixed the braking issue somewhat.

Awesome. Thank you for the pointers! There is still that extra spoiler I haven't put on the body yet so that might help with the downforce. I need to get a tire truer that will true with camber so I can get the right tires on too. My truer is just straight across.

Default Difference between std (2401) and HT (2410) chassis?

Does anyone know what the difference is between the new WC spec chassis and the Std MRX 5 one?

Thanks

The newer Chassis is harder and has less flex than the older Chassis.

A well adjusted A.B.S is all you need, it can brake any 1/8 with easy you just need:

1. A strong and faaaaast servo, slow servo does not get the job done and will overheat
2. If you can adjust the ABS point on your transmitter try these:

a. Adjust your mechanical brake until it starts to lock the wheels at the end of a straight full speed than jam break
b. Switch on the ABS or ALB depending on your transmitter
c. Adjust the stroke to 70%
d. Brake point to 85%
e. Release 0.04 s
f.Hold 0.04 s
g. Lag 0.00 s

The whole brake system is std on my MRX5 but the break power with ABS is amazing

All starts on your servo speed and the best and strongest I have tried so far for ABS purposes is KO Propo, many others will burn soon with above setup.

ABS does not work for everyone. The one loves it and the other looses the feeling in the brake as he has no control over it.
It is not what you need to use but something you have to try.....

With my MRX4 I switched back to a very old and proved system, an epoxy brakedisc on plain steel brakepads. It is very stable in braking and went from a 13 gram to a 3 gram disc.
