too heavy. kawahara has also a one disc version. much better.

But, MSR seems to have a good one. Itīs not made of metal. Would like to try, but itīs not available here in germany.

Ive got the vented 3racing one. I lathed it and polished it , it seems to work great. Either way the stock unit should also work well , I really cant see any problems from it braking wise. Very solid. If your looking to drop weight , shafts are better choice. But it is another item to further lighten drivetrain.

Also remember a vented unit will wear down the pad faster. It will allow gases to pass freely during venting and it should help cool itself due to the higher surface area the slots create as well as being able to pass air through those ducts when spinning.

But for the price of the kawahara , its really not needed. Id say you can spend money elsewhere on more beneficial things. I got the 3racing cause its cheap and does what I need.

Kawahara is a no brainer , it seems to be the best for everything , especially at draining the wallet.

Why not get P-dub brake disk?? It's only $12.99 USD and feedback on it has been excellent.

mmmh makes me think, but thanks for the thought, shall make up mind if yes or no!

I have raised more weight in my car due to a 4mm chasis, so its 7grams heavery now, not a huge differance, just thinking of more bling LOL

Default Fiberglass & Carbon Fiber Brake discs.

I'm not sure how long that fiberglass disc would last if your on the brakes alot. Fiberglass is not fracture or wear resistant. Even with the square edged brake pulley contact points with the discs, I'm sure that it would get pretty sloppy after afew race weekends. Just my .02!!

my x1cr pro buggy has these types of brake disks, it seems to hold up well. remember with the mugen the disk is held on by pins through the disk so there is less contact on a "hub" type system hence less wear.

I have just built the mugen spool from the diff case and find that it rubs on the ackerman/tie rod
Is this a mugen fault or am I doing something wrong
