Default Fake brakes for RC?

I have a Hpi Rs4 3 Evo, and i was just wondering how you can attach fake brakes onto the axle, and where you can buy them. Ive seen Rc's with them on, but i dont know where to get them.

Go to HPI's Gallery. You'll find something like that on one of the cars, especially the 2005 winner. They are just fake Disc brakes on each wheel.

Ive seen them on a few concourse touring cars at hpi challenges and stuff but not many places else. But I remember someone offering the kit , just not sure which company.

Some of these people might also be custom making them.

But skys the limit. In these pictures this is all an RC car , or is it.











Its almost unbelievable. But here is a shot showing how he does some of it.

I made mock up rotors for my car once i just cut out the center of some cds put some foil builders tape on it and glues it on the inside of the rim. wasnt that noticable when using the car but looked cool when you were holding the car
