Default Brakes and Front Gears

I finally got the clutch straigten out (I think). the screw is about 1-2mm outside the nut but it has a decent acceleration, I just put Racer's Edge one way bearing lube every other tank.

This car runs great and has excellent handling. It's just hard to get used to one having the one way though. But a lot of people like it coz it has that drifting effect. Not good on tires though.

My problem is that I sanded the pads a bit and I even sanded the ninja start vent disk but the brakes still drag a bit. Sometimes it moves somewhat freely but sometimes it just drags.

Also, Anybody know the front diff gear set part number? I just need the gears right or do I need a different housing than the one that came with the kit?

your help has always been grately appreciated

You can use the housing that comes with the housing BUT change the screws to a longer and wider cap. If not the diff oil will sure to leak

The brakes need to be sanded down quiet abit. Also, you should notice after 1 day of racing, they should not bind anymore. I would just leave them, run the car for awhile and check them. Most of the guys at our track had this problem, but after a hard days racing, the car's drivetrain loosened up quiet a bit. If they still bind, it could be a problem with the way you have your brake linkage setup.

the main reason of brake blinding is because of the steel brake pad backing plate is not perfectly flat. the plate is curve due to the manufactoring process. check it on a flat glass top to see that the plate is uneven and curve. simply use your finger to twist the backing plate until it is almost flat and the problem is fixed.
