Perhaps that is the problem.

If the silicone tube is quite long, the soggy feeling ( brake fading ) might have risen. Perhaps you can shorten the silicone tube around 0.3 inches or 1 cm.

In my car, I don't use silicone tubes. I simply set the maximum braking without brake locking through EPA. So far so good, even with box standard equipments.

Okay, let see how it will perform with stock pads.

Ciao.

I usually run the car on the stock pad, I changed to the other pad and it faded WAY more than it had before.. so I went back to the stock pad. Might pick up a mugen pad and throw it on to test (I always liked my mugen brakes).

I know everyone feels the brakes are weak on the NT1. For kicks I bought the kyosho offroad ACRE bonded semi-metallic brake pads (used in the evo also?). They do not fit out of the box. I had to dremel them, but they do not fade. Running the stock disk. It took a while to dremel, it get's pretty close to almost not working because you take so much material off that you almost don't have a hole anymore for the screw.





The one that is dremeled down the most has to fit into the stock location, the other one the size is not as critical. The "half moon" shape had to be adjusted also but a dremel griding tool was the perfect fit.

Instead of doing all that work all you had to do is purchase the KM Racing pads...these pads by far are the best pads I've have found to work on the NT-1 and they look cool to boot..

Default flywheel not locking

Trying to install the flywheel onto my rb r3 and the flywheel isnt locking in place. Does the cone that comes with the rb work with the flywheel?

Try to find a Brass collet, the flywheel will grab better on a Brass collet.

Based on the manual the nova one is 7mm, the rb one is only 5.5
I wonder if thats the problem? If you used the 7mm how did you get the measurment from the top of the not to the top of the trank to 9.2?

Is this the one your talking about?

Rui what's up man, you can add shims behind the collet to push it up. I use the novarossi collets without any issues. Your collet sounds like it's on the short side.

Whats up Diatta? Yeah, i figured the collet was too small. I guess i should add 1.5 or so in shims to get the flywheel to lock in place? If i do that i'll never get the 9.2-9.3 spacing from the nut to the top of the crank..Are you gonna be at 360 Sunday? If yes, maybe I can bring it with me?
