    Hot racing parts

    I looking to get some hop up parts for my Jato 3.3, and read on here about Hot Racing dual brake system. I'm seems pretty strong, so my question is, does the company have a good reputation for sir other hop up parts (gears, clutches, etc)?

    Im new to jatos, but Ive never heard a bad thing about hot racing. They are a lesser known brand, at least in the Maxx world, but every time someone posts up their products, its a good review. Not sure if this completely answers ur question or not

    Hot Racing makes a top quality product. I have bought many of their parts and will buy many more, but they have absolutely NO customer service.

    I just put mine on last night. I need some lock tight for the small screw, so I haven't used them yet. How tight do you screw in the two screws that hold the pads? As it is now, my disks wiggle back and forth a little. Do I need to make it tighter?

    Yes brother. I tightened them till it gets to the point where they're are not that lose and not that tight so the disc can still turn freely

    I did that today and I see I big improvement over the factory brakes. They lock up much easier, but with some braking control I got the truck to stop in a lot less distance than before.

    Wow, $40 is pretty pricey. I've been able to get pretty good stopping power with finger control and my braking setup. Not sure if I want to drop $40 on that lol.

    Unfortunately I wasn't getting the stopping power/control I wanted from the factory brakes. It was a little of an impulse buy (online shopping mostly is, lol), but no buyers remorse.

    X2. I retro fitted it to my Revo and it works great. Overall, I have purchased a bunch of parts from them recently and they are all top quality.

    I disagree. Their CS is better than intedgy.
