That's an interesting idea! Let us know how it works out, and if one side (solid) glazes up faster than the other.

I have tried many brake disk configurations over the years... first by drilling vent holes myself in a symmetrical pattern, then using Serpent's special 1-pc vented disk, then finally using Serpents vented disks (like you have). Now, I use the vented disks on both sides of the "ninja star" spacer, along with Serpent special "racing" brake pad set which is FANTASTIC!

I find that the venting on both sides is what causes good airflow around/through the disk assembly, allowing for cooling and better sustained brake performance without fading. Two vented disks also allows a better "sloughing" action on both pads, to remove any crud buildup and prevent pad glazing.

I suspect that with less airflow being allowed through your disk assembly, that it will get hotter faster than if you used 2 vented disks. It will, however, be 1/2 way lighter between the full-solid disk and a full-vented disk.

But please keep us informed!

Best regards,

Good point about glazing. With the 710, I had glazing using the option pads combined with the larger optional disc but it took a while to form. I'm kind of hoping that the holes on the one side (with the option disc) can provide enough cooling for the combined discs. I have heard about airflow through the disc but by separating the two disk with the star aren't you getting airflow between them as well? Won't hot air flow out toward cooler air as the disc spins? Glen, how bad does glazing get using standard pads and solid discs?

I'm not sure if it was Serpent's intension but with the little Ninja star you can combine discs in different ways. It's a great idea. You could try a solid disc for area on one side and another option disc on the other. Another example on the border's site:

http://shop.the-border.nl/product.ph...7&cat=0&page=2

There used to be a carbon disc sold for the 710 but I can't find it anywhere now. Carbon is a great conductor so if the star is made of aluminium you could draw heat from the solid disc toward the cooling disc and maybe solve heat issues that way using conduction. Well, it's all a theory at this point as to how much glaze forms on a combined disc. A test is needed.

But before I start the test I'm already thinking about pads. With the 705 and 710 the option pads have had the distinct advantage of lasting longer. But, on the other hand, are expensive, take time to warm up and, especially on one side, grind themselves down to nothing eventually. In terms of brake power I have not noticed a difference with the standard but I don't have any experience with Serpent 1/8th so I don't know if the option pads make a difference. Has anyone tried using pads from another maker, say Mugen or Kyosho? Maybe a pad combo is another idea.

You have to hit something pretty hard to bend them.

In stead of putting the nipple on the side insert a 3mm grub screw in both holes, and drill a 2.5mm hole in the back of the cap and thread the nipple in there.

I don't think you should remove the other side of the stiffner.....no reason to.

Default no stifferners

If you cut the left hand stiffner, then u will need to remove the right one becuase it will make the chassis to twist unevenly. It is a subtle difference and yr chassis wil last longer.
