The futaba ones fit with a 4mm Mugen chasis, don't see which servo is, but seems a KO or similar, if you have at least 0.5mm of clearance between servo and chasis plate, you can put it without a problem.

Some come with a little reinforcement on the upper side, just dremel it and fix it with zip ties.

Anyone using the 3 racing brake bar?

I just got it and am a little perplexed on how it is supposed to work with the stock throttle linkage.

I am sure it uses some kind of ball cup, but wanted some "expert" opinions on how best to install it..

Thanks

if not mistaken, it uses the same ball cup as the carb slide cup..
i dont see a need for this brake bar as the ball cup would pop out under nasty side impact in a collision..

better stick with the stock plastic arm as it has the reverse stop to avoid brake blinding when full throttle.

Whoa!.... scary speed and really tight track, planned some time ago to do something like this with the camera, but for sure that GF should complain if I strap the camera to the car (for not thinking if I crash with the camera installed ).

Here is a picture of the track:
