    I make my slipper pads out of a radiator hose, it works better than any of the high performance aftermarket pads I tried.

    I run the aluminum pads myself with nothing but success. They hold up much better than the fiber pads. Just make sure to scuff them in before installing them or they'll slip too much and get very hot.

    Yes, it's a lower radiator hose for an old chevy van. I use it for many different things on my RC's.

    Loving the thought and ingenuity put into this,

    ^^^ Is what I use on my ERBE and Summit in place of the slipper pads. It yields a pretty big sweet spot and stands up well to brushless abuse.

    Hey ksb, does the T-Maxx brake disk just drop right in? Is there any mods needed? Thanks!

    It should just drop right in. Maybe a little bit of mod to make the holes bigger. There's a thread or two or more in the other forums about this.

    Correct. The holes need to be widened a little toward the outside edge of the disc. Depending on the exact thickness of the disc and the model's gear cover, some "clearancing" of the inside of the gear cover may be necessary.
    I've just checked the disc installed in my ERBE. Nice, even wear on the steel disk and the slipper-brake disk, which is showing every bit of its surface being swept. That's a lot more contact than any three slipper pads.

    That looks great Alexsy. The thickness of the wire is near perfect fit.

    Thanks KSB for the brake disc mod as well.

    Though I applaud your ingenuity, I would not trust that wire with the sharp deformities on it as it will cut into the slipper plate. In addition make sure the correct thickness is used otherwise the spur gear will not sit evenly with the clutch bell and allow it to strip easier. Use something better designed for your application. I've had the same set of pads for 6 gallons now without an issue. When I first got into this hobby I read up on a lot of stuff before purchasing my T-Maxx and one of them was to put a dab of tire glue on the back of the pad and attach it to the pressure plate.
    If I didn't have a spare set of pads I would purchase the T-Maxx brake pad referenced above and use that.

    I doubt you would have posted if your spur wobbled and spit out metal shavings. Good job making alternative parts Russian dude.
