well the rs4 did not come with pads that why i am saying that even when you put on the fiber disk .
can you adjust the screws that hold the plate for the brakes and close up some of the gap ?

If you are talking about the pads that glue the to brake plates on either side of the fiber disk, then yes. You can get them for just about any other car and they will work fine. You might need to trim a bit though.

If you lost the steel plates, you might have a problem. You might check the parts cross refference guide the HPI has on their site and see if another car or truck uses the same part. You could also look at the Nitro MT and the Super nitro rally because they use the same drivetrain.
