    Asbestos problem with REDCATS?

    Well, I was reading another post here and it was saying that some HSP's models ( figured this might include REDCATS ), have asbestos in the brakes or something? just wondering if this has to do anything with the REDCAT models???

    Zeen420,
    The link you posted doesn't talk about the asbestos.

    Here is the correct link. [link]http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=6951558[/link]

    RE: Asbestos problem with REDCATS?

    Big deal... Just don't go licking your brakes!

    Did you know:

    Asbestos in Your Car and Local Auto Repair Shop
    Asbestos has been a component of brake pads and linings, clutch facings and various gaskets for many years. Millions of brakes and clutches on cars, trucks, and on auto parts shelves still contain dangerous levels of the material, although it is not generally used in the production of new brakes or clutches.

    You cannot tell if a brake or clutch contains asbestos just by looking at it. Therefore, auto mechanics and do–it–yourself auto enthusiasts should proceed as if all brakes and clutches contained asbestos.
    That smell when you over heat your brakes, or work your clutch to hard... ya, could be asbestos, and you are breathing it.

    Edit: LOL! vnmsgt beat me to it!
