I just took my DM-1 Spec out for the first time for practice last weekend. I had installed the Ofna special brake pads (36659) with the laser cut steel rotor (49009). I had more brake than I could use and ended up turning it way down on the radio. Give them a try. You can find them in the "Option Parts" section of DM-1 Spec parts if you look them up on the Nitrohouse website.
