Just to add to the insanity I've fitted my KB with aluminum red anodized Brembo brake calipers and discs. Of course, it's for show and they don't really work however I think it's a nice addition to the look'n'feel of this car.
Took me a bit of time with the Dremel to sand and drill into the plastic knuckles to make everything fit. Ran into a couple of issues:
- The caliper mounting bracket is a bigger diameter than the knuckles axle hole.
- The 3 mm offset of the wheels was a bit of an issue as the caliper didn't clear the inside of the spokes. - Also the axle is not quite long enough the allow the additional parts so I sanded a bit off the surface (can't make the axle longer so I made the knuckles shorter).
But as you can see, it works. Hope you enjoyed this video
Looks great! Btw, the problem with these accesories is that they are ment for 1/10 on-road cars, not for the 1/16...

Yes very nice! These same fitment issues crop up on some 1/10 scale cars as well. To be fair, we are running 1/10th scale wheels/tires/suspension bits...just a shortened chassis really. Gives our cars a sort of cartoonish look.
That looks Great! how do you like that g190?

Yes, running 1/10 components is indeed why I figured it would probably fit with some modifications on the KB. Really love working on this, more than I initially thought. Technology has come a loooong way since my last R/C car about 12 years ago
My drifting 'skills' are not even close to how Ken Block handles his real car... So to help me out a bit I've added the gyro. I have it set to 50% now and it definitely works its magic to chain drifts together. Especially with the Falken drift tires.
I find the supplied wheels/tires (although they look great) and the short chassis to unstable for long slides without the gyro. Of course mostly due to my handling.
that looks pretty snazzy. good job
