Default 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.

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

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...
