    brake screws

    I just had to take apart my entire car to replace a part, on reassembly I find that if the bolts that screw the brake calliper down are too tight the wheels wont' spin at all, but if I loosen it up the arm moves a little too much and the brake calipers rattle. Is there a solution to this??? Any help would be appreciated.

    RE: brake screws

    I have took apart my redcat lighting vx you have to find the sweet spot. just tighten till it can wiggle like 1/16th of a inch also when you have it in its loose spot pull back on the arm and see if it tightens up well

    RE: brake screws

    Excellent idea justin,gunna borrow that if ya dont mind . Now I just gotta figure a way to keep it completely centered cause it bothers me how it just floats freely on the universal output like that...
