who need brakes this thick anyways... ?
i should say who break hard with a one way in front?
i barely use brakes myself.....
This car was an absolute pleasure to build...I worked on it a little each day for the past week but total build time was only about 5 hours. It wouldn't have been that long were it not for the friggin brakes. I want the drive-train completely free which is why I'll soon go through and replace all bearings.
After sanding the hell of the pads, bending the hell out of the brake stop posts, and lightly Ca'ing the discs together so there was no gap between them, the brakes still dragged slightly.
Finally I just took your approach ME-student and took the left pad off. I just need enough brakes to stop the thing in the pits anyway. Can't wait to get this thing on a track.
Another note 5 AAA rechargeables, a few deans bars, sauter and a plug = < $20 for a 650 mah pack, and mine took 800 mah after 1 cycle.
