Need help with Brakes on Hurricane XTR by Redcat Racing
 
Hey guys,

I have been having one hell of a time adjusting and getting the brakes to do there job on this 1/8 scale Nitro Redcat Hurricane xtr I recently purchased. I have tried everything from adjusting tension on the servo sliders/springs to removing the whole damn main gearbox with the brake housing and tigtening the brake rotors themselves against the metal pads. I have 2 of this buggy and they both have no stopping power whatsoever. The pads on both vehicles look like friction has taken its toll just from the regular friction that takes place while letting off the trigger. The thing that gets me though is they seem to be burning up the rotors regardless of how loose they are between the metal pads. Any bright ideas on a fix would be greaty appreciated on getting these brakes to work at all. Thanks!!!!
