I had a little trouble today, and need some advice as I am a little lost and tired of unsuccessfully trouble shooting a brake problem. When I let off the gas the brakes are dragging. I am sure someone knows better than me how to get it right. The manual has very vague instructions, the only spec they give is that the pads are 4.5mm apart. and that the two eye hook levers are .5mm apart in the center.

Forget the manual.

Adjust your trim on the transmitter more towards the throttle.
If you don't have any free space to move it...readjust the collar and do it again until you have freewheel.

The above is for the case where you have the trims right.

Turn on the radio and receiver(not the engine), push the car back and forth...do you feel any braking(note that AE have the best freewheel from all cars out there, IMHO)?
Apply full throttle and move it again any difference?
If NOT then your trim is fine.

But if you felt some drag in both above cases then your pads are too close to the disks and need to back off the screws on the center diff.

This is the correct way to set up your servo linkages here

That's a great video. But doesn't help with brakes.

Who is running the stock rc8t ce. My buddy is running it with 575 diff oil. I'm looking for a good all around outdoor track setup.

Mine isn't stock,

But seems the standard diff set up is 7-7-7. I recently tried a 7-7-5 set up to free up the rear a bit and didn't get enough time to say for sure if I liked it. Might try a 7-7-6 set up next if the rear feels too loose.

I actualy have 7/10/5 now. Mostly as an experiment though, Ive had a hard time getting the rear to let go properly so its been like driving a train. This should solve it hopefully.

I started off with 7-7-7 and the rear end wanted to come around to easily. Then I switched to 7-7-5 and it seemed to help. Now I'm going to try 7-10-5 and see what that does. More than likely I'll go back to the 7-7-5 amd maybe 7-7-3 to give that a try.
