      Ya – heaps of those stickons available for mZ, 1/10 and Maxxes, even seen metal discs for Micro RS4s.

      But my big question is… of course they won’t work, ‘cos Where’s the Brake Calipers??

      Shiny metal ones good only for jap tincan like the Toyo Echo.

      You’ll need carbon-ceramic ones for your GT3, Jamie. πŸ™‚

      Panda, most of us know that they DON’T do anything besides look good, but some people on other forums were convinced that they were real working disc brakes. Calipers would enhance the look, but who can be bothered.

      Barell, I REALLY want some of these babies cause they r so cool, where did u get yours from?

      i think they are attached to the wheels…and those wheels look like they were specifically designed for the rotors

      Toyeast sells them and so do rcmart. mini-zracer.com and draconious(?) should either have them or be able to get them in too πŸ™‚

      Nah, there’s heaps of room in the wheels to add discs. The suspension doesn’t impinge much.

      All the ones I’ve seen are just plain discs of metal or plated plastic. I’m sure you can easily cut your own.

      I was yanking yer chain on the callipers.:) Not possible to put rotors on… as they’ll just go round-n-round. Not even on the Micro RS4, which comes from the factory with discs.

      Panda i was yankin’ your chain with the callipers ;).
      Not possible to put rotors on?? I thought discs and rotors were the same thing.
      Even if u could put callipers on somehow, they would probably give so much trouble, and working out how to get some way of operating wouldnt be easy.

      but could you imagine 8 spots up front and some 6 or 8 spots up back, the car would be crazy.
      i want a handbrake in my car so i can rip it up with a proper drift release

      Simple – to *avoid* heart attacks, just *don’t* count. :):):)

      I lost count of how many cars we have many years ago.
      But that’s ok, I don’t even dare to count anymore.

      Ya, can’t take $$ with you… πŸ‘Ώ

      Thing is, if you don’t spend much on house, 1:1 cars, women, clothes, booze, cigs, drugs… there’s a surprisingly ample amt leftover even on my meagre wage.

      There are definitely worst ways to blow your ca$h than gadgets & RC toys. πŸ™‚

      The AutoScale that arrived yesterday was a 360 Modena… but it looks too darned good to run!! Even the rear logo and tailpipes are chrome finished, amazing! πŸ™

      Had thought of mounting it anyway till I found a better basher/runner, but then realised (1) chassis was too short and (2) I think I’ve got a Echo/Vitz and the motor is “high”.

      Modena needs “Long” and “Low”; could do the Long but didn’t have the bits to move the motor. As is it’ll bash the rear window, so its retired back into the case.

      Hmm… what’s the 4AAA battery box on the dummy chassis for? Looks like Kyosho wants us to light up the display body, maybe. :p

      thats a nice shell Panda, i was worried about driving my WRX but now it just getting thrashed andc i love the battle scars, it feels more “loved” then it did b4.

      just got 18 hops ups in the mail today after a very very long and painstaking wait.

      i now hav and X speed installed, some serious camber, a new motor mount and heat sink, some carbon fibre H plates and HEAPS of toehr stuff which Charg-o-saurus and i are gonna split

      i couldnt figure how to work the motor mount properly, the Heat sink just kept sliding off so i aint gonna keep that one and Charg-o-saurus needs it anyways.

      the X speed is a bit too fast sometimes, with my old motor i could at least turn without flipping lol, its a crazyfast peice of work, i think out on the concrete it will be ALOT better and i dont think i will roll as much, hopefully

      you have to screw the heat sink on with thr 2 screws it comes with (2 fat short ones).

      The x speed is mad, on uphill concrete, it just spins when you put the finger straight forward !!
