Default K-Factory Brake Pads.

The K-Factory Brake pads I had a chance to run last year. They really do provide fade free and consistant brake operation. The brake pads also come with two little springs that keep the pads apart for less friction. They work great.

I see alot of guys who run the Mazda 6 body, and have set there car up for it. For those of you who haven't tried a Stratus 3.1, you really should try one. It really makes the car more neutral, and seems to absolutely plant the rear end of the car. It's amazing what a diffrence a body makes.

RayJ,
I actually find the Stratus 3.1 is a little bit too stable. Try the Blitz Saab93 or Mazda3 if you prefer a more stable setup, you'll be surprise

Thanks Car Breaker, and thanks to Muppet, Roki and NiMo for the input too.

I've not checked the balance but the car was really good to drive.

No problem, just speaking the truth as I see it. Im taking as many notes as possible about G4S, so that when I get the money again to buy it (had to buy a "new" 1:1 car a few weeks ago, my previous one decided to stop running ), I will be as prepared as possible. Can't wait to see the video

left turner on the early evo cars the steering rack comes very close to the belt. many of used to trim the nut down with a file slightly so it just cleared. read the mongoose thread start to finish and you will see discussion about it. The later replacement plastic for the steering rack made it clear a little better. I think they readjusted the mold to lower it a little.

You'll see ... don't worry. I've edited out a lot of the bad footage.

On the other hand, one can only edit out so much!
