Yeah, the ones quoted are for 1/5 & 1/6 scale. No one makes Hydraulic brakes for 1/10 cars. People have tried to make their own front brakes, we have a thread on it, but not much is really going on else wise.

To explain further, First, your Wheels will not clear them, and if by some luck, you got them to adapt, which will be impossible without custom knuckles, wheel adapter and such, the added unsprung weight will make the truck handle like crap. There is a reason no one makes such a novelty. If you want front brakes, you are better off running a 1/10 4WD truck or such that uses the motor to brake front and rear tires.
