I have never had a fade problem with the mugen vented disk. My prob was always fuel etc on the pads after refuel or long run where oil get's there. Then I went to teflon pads and they are perfect the whole time

If you guys want really good and consistant brakes, try Kyosho's brake pads, part number APP-02-02.

Best brakes I ever had in a Mugen car

I have also had a case, when the track was not very clean and I was too lazy to clean my car, dirt got mixed with fuel/oil between the pads and the dragbrake progressed during the run, by the end the car was completely undrivable. I could hardly move the belt with my fingers..

The Kyosho APP pads come glued on. No sticking is necessary. They work great on my RRR

Whoa, those are looking sweet! Where can you get those? I think they must be preglued, because if you don't find the right glue it will just fall apart.. I've tried several different glues, but they still fall off after a time, but it doesn't seem to have much impact on braking..

I found them on pro-shop futaba's site. I am still deciding if i should get them.

They are not cheap. about 3000 yen plus..

How much are the Kyosho's ones?

Special compliment on yellow teflon pads. These pads are very good.

the only complaint i have regarding the mugen 'prospec' (thick) brake disk is it's diameter is a bit too large, when running some engines (eg. the nova 353 plus) you have to 'run in' the carburetur as well, meaning the brake disk will need to 'cut in' the carburetur before finally never jamming again

what a nightmare not only need to run in a new engine when you get a new one, still need to 'run in' or 'cut in' the carburetur as well

anyone knows of any good price 'slighltly smaller diameter' braje disks >

many thanks

not sure if it smaller than the mugen R disc, i use the team magic G4S stock disc, its holed, 2mm thick and less weight than the R, no problems whatsoever when using teflon pads, $5 only

It's the thickness of the Prospec disc that is touching your carb not the diameter. I run a NR 3sct and had the same problem. I just did not attempt to breakin my carb. Take a look at the Racers' Edge vented brake disc.

How long due these pads last? Pretty pricey at 27.00/pr

Didn't realize that people were having this many problems with their brakes. I just used the stock disc and pads in the 'R' kit and haven't had any problems at all with fade or with hitting the carb on the Ninja. I think one of the guys at the track tried the RRR pads on the car and they bound up the rear, so he took them off.
