I would be curious to know how well this kit works as well.

Tooly- did you ever mount the 17 tooth pinion gear on your FHMT or am I thinking of someone else?

Do a search on Hobbypeople.net for this:

XTM Front Disc Brake kit - 1/5, 1/6, Grizzly

It will be the first item in the listings. Unfortunately, there are no pics!

Since I found it through the search engine you can't see it, so search it like csp1971 said.
I contacted global hobby (xtm distributer and they say it's a direct fit but don't have any photo).

csp1971 ,

I ordered my 17 and 18 pinion toghter with 48 alloy spur for the comanche.
I should get it anyday.

I'm currently using the stock 19 pinion but my engine got so stronger and it's very close to wheelie and it's just after the 3rd tank, can't wait to check the new pinions.

I'm very glad to hear that.

You need to do anything special to use it ?

That is a great deal on a cable brake kit. The comparable FG cable brake kit is $140 from RC Nut's.

I'd bet this kit would work on an FG with little modification.

If used with on a Smartech/Carson etc I supply parts from Smartech on-road car for fitting brakes on.
These brakes will also fit on FG cars as really they are a copy of FG brakes, but just remember the quality is not as good as FG! but they still work fine!

Cheers Bryan
