Hydros are good but mecatechs not gtbs

May aswell strap a bottle of hydraulic fluid to each steering knuckle with a pinhole in the bottom

i'd get rid of the front brakes steve, get some good rear disc for it..."maybe something you can make brad a nice solid rear disc"

them front brakes just cause problem's on the baja's and lots of mud and crap get caught in there.. better off with no front brakes..

good for onroad but i think there more problem's then what there worth..

That was my first thought Ambro, really not to sure about them to be honest....

I have the solid micro disc already and that works well......

But i guess i just need to try these out for myself lol.... i know ^screwy*

I think i remember reading a few guys from SOLS had issues with binding from the mud that gets picked up after wetting down the track.

i have a feeling a few guys run disk but they might be the air brakes with the enclosed system?

Looking good Steve,good idea to try them for yourself,i had cable front disc's on mine and they worked great but started having issues when I started bashing more regular,for racing they may just be the ticket thumbsup

Ok got some more done this afternoon, I dummy fitted everything up to make sure im on the right track...... I do need to turn the throttle servo around and cut out the cross piece to clear the steering servo. I fixed the disc that was on the wrong way lol...... I need to do some mods to the body mounts to get the Hormann body to fit as well.......

Also need to fix up the body paint a little...... I might tint the windows as well.....

Getting there!!

I thought about them but yes a pic with tyres might help, they are hard to work out what they would look like without tyres....

Just my opinion on those wheels I found the plastic a bit soft and the beadlocks kept coming away. But that was on my twin
