    Jato 3.3.. Aftermarket brakes??

    Hi All,

    Does anyone have any suggestions on a good after-market brake for my Jato 3.3? The factory brake just isnt doing the trick fast enough. I have seen a few online which include an aluminum "vented" brake disc, as well as a carbon disc with new brake plates...

    Would either of these stop the Jato faster than its factory brakes, or should I just keep the factory ones?

    Thanks,

    Hot racing makes some good reputation brakes.

    I have the hot-racing dual brake set. They work great. There's a thread in here where someone made a dual disk set-up with the stock rotors. He said it worked good and it was a pretty cheap mod. You should check it out.

    I found it. The Hot Racing dual brake looks pretty gnarly! Thanks guys!

    Any other suggestions, or is this the one to get?

    beside the dual brake kit, you can do these,
    replace the throttle/brake linkcage spring to fuel tube,
    replace the 2018 to hi tq. 2055 servo,
    replace the plastic bushing on Brake Cam Lever Linkage to ball bearing.
    Slash PE & Ja-two.
