Default BRakeS

ok people did a lil bit more on it today .. mocked up the brake set up .. need to do a lil more to it ... so basicly

i used a CEN buggy twin rotor brake set up i had already from another build i did . i mod'd it with nut spacers because it has no top deck to sit through like in the buggy . also off my other build used a himoto brake hub and 2x rotors because well there cheap .. i drilled out the hub 8mm to slip over the axle. the plan is to run 2 servo's so iv got one sitting there , where im gunna run it, next to the tank and gunna mount it up higher than the throttle one to suit the brake set up .. think its all gunna work very well. once it works gunna buy a mbx6 set up and make that work .. looks so much better than this .. to me its ugly but just to get me rolling il roll with it ..

sorry for the pics , there off my phone ..

ok did a lil on this after work today ... its pretty much all done now brakes are done and its all mounted and they WORK ! hahha in the pics just for now using one rotor cos i waiting for 2 new fiber glass rotors to come then il run 2 rotors. ummm the wiring is messy , but for its first outing it will be ok . i wanna try and hide as much wiring as i can . as u can see im running 2 servos one for each side. i had to, with the room i had . they go through a servo Y to the rec ... i also i wanna replace all the cheap as hell screws in the chassis floor with m3 button head with lock tite. i wanna try and take it to a car park tomoz and video it. was raining today hopfully tomoz is better ..

also that air cleaner is just for now ... i wanna run a ON-road air box like a real kart .. should all look good .

god old aussie creativity right here You might want to change those tyres though. plastic rims will just wear out really quick. maybe superglue a thin layer of foam froma used tourer tyre to it.

nice always good to chat to ex karters .. what did ya use to run dude ? u prob would have noticed the CRG stickers on it lol ( a italian kart chassis) .. id love to make my own stickers and sticker it up like a current CRG and then to add to the scale of the thing, put a SIRIO .12 on it . the NAME SIRIO (if people are wondering ) is very big in go-kart racing, they make kart race engines but its a differnt company to the RC engine one but same name ... but the problem is i dont think they make a pullstart or roto which is what i need oh well.. have to put a RB or nova roto on it in the long run ..

anyways todays update is iv now got twin fiberglass rotors on it and the brakes work f'ing awwwwwsome now it just locks up on Q ... when i get sum more time il make a way better vid and tune it in a much bigger area. should be fun .
