I have also tried the KM pads but found they are too "sticky", that when I brake, the car comes to a complete hault.

Would someone mind sharing how they set up the brakes?

Also does it make a difference between using the steel vs alumnium brake disc?

I get much smoother braking with the original brake pads and disc from the kit.

there are a few ways to adjust your brake after I have adjusted my screws that hold my pads on I will then adjust mine through my transmitter say around 45% or so depends on the day and I never set mine for full brake its to easy to grab a heap of brake after the main straight and loose it or have someone run clean up your back side lucky I have the rear posts on my shock tower

ok, its all dependent on the track and your driving style. sometimes i run a diff, sometimes a spool but i run between 20-60% brake epa. I used to run 100 and just work with my finger but turn in is improved for me when i use less brake cause it transfers weight consistently to the front rather than stopping the car.

I used this combo on my 2nd NT1 now(carried over from old car). Still have 50% left. The KM pad works better with the xceed brake disk then original disk.
