Another brake mod that I think is working wonderfull is to bevel your brake cam where it is touches the brake pads.

Usually this area has a sharp angle, but if you round the edge off, your brake comes in more gradually and smoother.
Small shock rebuild O/rings work perfectly, a buddie of mine suggestred it .

similar quality but it seems shooter has put more thought on its products.

Very Good Info Stefan Thank You! There is hope for you yet !

I used the Associated 1/12 scale front softest springs (.018" - sorry don't have the part no. at hand) but had many problems with them, faced coil bind problems - springs were a little too long - when brake was applied and the springs were too stiff and separated with too much force the brake pads and the other edge rubbed with the disk brake (not too much but enough to wear unevenly the brake pads).
Springs are springs wherever you find them . I use Fishing reel springs alot because I have easy access to them and in the past 50 or so years they have come in almost every configuration imaginable for small mechanical systems. Anytime you need a spring to do a job try an old tackle repair shop they usually have jars of compression,Retract,Bevel,Lever,Waffle, and Flat springs. I've also killed a few ballpoint pens .
Happy Holidays All!

I think there is no way you can say that you will not brake at all. I guess it depends on the track and the driver. For me I do not brake much, usually at the end of the straight only. But i read somewhere in here before that if you set your brakes to make the car twitch a little on braking it will make the car turn in faster. I tried it and it really works! Its not easy to remember that you are doing the braking to twitch the car on purpose. Tire wear is not bad at all too.
