make sure you use the right size phillip screw driver. the screws can easily be stripped. Enjoy putting it together.

Default Brakes

What do you guys do to keep the brakes from dragging... if anything? Do you put springs between the pads, return spring on the arm, etc... I find that the brake arm does not return to neutral very well.

Thanks,
jag

Re-align you linkage stoppers and spring on the throttle servo mixing arm / horn.

The K-Factory upgrade pads come with springs to go between them. You can do what kewdawg suggested and then perhaps some ball point pen springs between the pads.

Also, Make sure the mounting screws for the brake plates are of equal length when screwed into the mount. If, not, this can cause the brake plates to rest unevenly and rub the brake disk. The brake plates should have a little "play" in them when the assembly is together.

I'm not sure I understand what you are telling me. How about a picture? I was adjusting my endpoints and I find that when I apply the brakes and then let off, the brake lever doesn't return to a neutral position. There is no return spring in the brake assembly. It is not that the linkage is binding or dragging. If I push the brake lever with my finger and let go it doesn't release. It just stays there. The brake disk is floating when the brake is not applied and the pads are not binding on the screws. Maybe it's just because the car is new and sitting on a stand and not running. Maybe the brake assembly will loosen over time... I don't know.

Thanks

Do you have a part number? Do the springs last? I did this to my T-Maxx and it worked pretty good but this is a different application.

Do you know of a place to buy K-Factory and Kawahara parts in the US?

Thanks

Use 24T pulley and 387 side belt for rubber tires.

Cheers, Mark.

Both cars felt very similar....I think all the top cars are very good. I think it boils down to what you feel most comfortable driving. just my opinion.

Hi JAg,

Jag, I have the plugs pointing up. I just run the wires up to the reciever at the backside of the upper deck. I don't run a switch, they are too heavy. J/K, I haven't had the best of luck with switches, I just unplug the battery from the reciever. I also took a chunck of bicycle innertube and wrapped the reciever in it.
