Might be true, I actually gone through quite a few belts last year. Yeah, when I had the belt problems, we were supecting that I drive a bit hard (braking) on the drivetrain. I do use tons of brakes pretty much in every corner I can though. BUT with that said, I'm no pro, and I'm sure Josh or Chris accelerates harder and brake harder then I'll ever drive my car and their cars can last an hour long main... know what I mean!

But then they could be driving a lot smoother than I am. Wait, I know they drive smoother than me for sure!

the normal pads are fine, the app's will overheat during long mains.

i swapped out from the std pads to the app's because of this problem you mention. since swapping to the apps my brakes dont seem to fade at all when compared to what i had with the std pads imo.

I made a flat spot an a titanium rear axle from my rrr wce so i could use it in the evo because of the different brake pulley. And besides removing all the useless parts and some titanium screws the weight came down quite easily. I also used an receiver battery with 1050mah instead of the 1400mah i used to run as the 1050mah pack was 25! grams lighter.

Yeah, the key is to stay on top of the pulleys. We all tend to overlook them. Worn pulleys will shorten the life of any belt.

Dynamite,
Which stock pads are you referring to? I know the V-One RRR WC includes a set of black pads and the RRR Evo WCE includes a red set. I'm not sure about the standard Evo kit.

Thanks,

i tryed the std ones that come with the rrr wc kit, they faded, swapped them to the red ones which look the same as the ones that came in my evo kit, while they were better they still faded.

got some app pads after being told for almost a year to try em lol and they were alot better. if the others work for you then thats awesome but i wont go back

i ran the kfactory pads but then switched to the kyosho app pads and will not run anything else. they slow the car down just enough to get round the corner without locking the wheels up.

Thanks for the feedback. last season I had the RRR WC kit with the stock black pads and the braking was inconsistent. For this season, I purchased the RRR Evo WCE kit but also purchased the APP brake pads at the same time. I have only been using the APP pads and never tried the stock red pads. Even with the APP pads, I'm still adjusting my brake settings when I come in to pit during long mains. They seem to fade for me a bit.
