Default Break

Hi Guys,

I gave the break pads a sanding.

Pushed the two pins approx. half there length into the chassis.

The breaks still bind?

Has anybody removed some plastic from the top brace disc stop?

If I remove any more break lining I'll have no break?

Has anybody got a free rolling drivetrain with no break binding?


Many Thanks

Did you seal the pads to the plates with thin coat of CA and squeeze tightly? If you did that and there is no gap between the pads and the plates then just sand the pads some more. Mine are free but I did have to go back and do more sanding. There is still lining left on the pads and I don't use brakes enough with a one-way to be concerned with how much is there.

I've got your free roll.
Check for binding with the rear pod removed from the chassis before attacking the plastic.
Make sure your discs are not distorted.
Remove any burs from the stamped disc spacer.
Make sure there is just the smallest gap between the pad and roll pins. We had to gently lever one roll pin over on the car we started building last night.

Default Brakes

Hi Guys,

Slightly bending the pins has helped.

Not as tight but not free rolling.

I'll check & tweek a few more things, sure this is half the fun of building a car.


Thanks for the advice

Horray For Nytro.......just got off the phone with our very own Robby, he told me how to solve the brake issue. first off, do not use any glue whatsoever on the brake pads, do not glue them to the metal. second, on the rear bulkhead over the brakes, there is a brake guide. grind it away. this should solve the problem.

I would enlarge the holes on the brake plate instead.

I was told to fix the tight brake fitting is to use rubber adhesive to glue on the pad and use a brenh wise to press both the pad to make sure the brake pad sit flat on the plate.
