View Full Version : Brake problem now
10-06-2009, 05:52 PM
I recently upgraded my brakes and I changed the rear A arms and I cant get the brakes to grab. I got the CF plate and aluminum arms and the car either rubs on the brake and works for a few minutes and then stops working. Can it be when I took the trans apart to replace the A arms I didnt put something together right with the trans. Just wondering what it could be and how I can get it adjusted right.

Take off your pads and lightly sand them down as well as your disc brake itself. After a fair amount of use the friction wares away, which is needed for proper braking function. Don't screw down the 2 hex screws all the way into the tranny casing as that may be your problem.
Spend 10-20 minutes rolling it around (engine offm electrics on). Keep toying with the trims and tightening/loosening all related brake linkage parts.

The brakes take a while to reset after being removed...wish traxxas gave like number of turns in for stock performance or something..
