This is the WCE version (not the EVO) and I am using the stock brake pads. I was thinking of getting the APP pads or the K-Factory brake pads, which should help this situation unless anyone has some other suggestion.
The brake pads probably bedded in on your first run - I clean mine with a scotch brite pad.
Do this, then re-adjust your brakes and i bet everything will be ok !

RRR rocks

Nope. I was referring to the Composite Bonded Brake Pads for the Inferno MP777/7.5/V-One RRR

You cannot just remove the 2mm spacer to use offset wheels. If you want to experiment with wheel offsets you need different universals.

Honestly, I really wouldn't think there is any advantage for one over the other. It's really just down to which manufacturers wheels/tires you choose. If certain company only has 2mm offset tires and no other option so you'll just have to run that and standard axle. Vice versa.

For me, GQ 0mm offset is a lot easier to get then their 2mm offset, therefore I run the 2mm offset axle so I can run the 0 offset wheels.
