Default Genesis & MTM Brakes,..... WOW!!

I finally fitted a set of Nemesis MTM brakes to my Genesis today.

I have almost replaced/upgraded every part possibly on my Genesis, except the brakes.

I tried making longer levers and adjusted the standard breaks every way possible, but it never offered anything more than a tiny bit of slowing down power. So for my 2nd total overhaul for this year , I have now added a front alloy diff, Nenesis metal front prop shaft, (after that failed), and heavy duty rear drive shafts and of course the MTM breaks. I was not sure, but desided to run my carbon GPM disc, instead of the metal ones that come in the upgrade kit.

Taking it out today, the stopping power is stunning!!!! [X(][X(][X(]

Running on a flat grassy field, flat out for 200yds, then full brakes, and is came to a complete stand still in 20ft, tearing two strips out of the grass.

I have to say, it is the single best mod I have made so far, and now I can stop, it should prevent so much crash damage.

I only wish you Nemesis and GST owners had stress how good MTM are before now. []

The GPM Carbon discs held up very well and show no real signs of wear.

The only problem I did have today was snapping the pins off of a front standard drive shaft. I will get around to adding heavy duty ones to the front in time, but as I still have 3 or 4 spares, I will wait until these have been used first until I do.

Besides, my main hobby, my Nissan GT-R, is having a total rebuild at the moment and its running way of cost, as these things do.

But fortunately for now, my Genemesis is just awesome!!!!

Nice looking truck Scott!! I have said many times how great the MTM Brakes work!!! In fact , they work so well I'm running only the front set as my center diff is locked. If i'm not careful the Nemesis will endo the single set of brakes work so well!!! I'm glad somebody tried the carbon fiber brake disks, I want to but just never ordered them, So based on your brief review of them I just ordered a set!! thanx Scott!

Nice looking truck!! But green??? lol just kiddin..

What do you mean, Green is my fav colour TRD.

Besides, its green/gold flip paint!!!

I was so glad when the GST came out with green chassis plates as I was about to take my red ones to a local anodisers.
That save me a few quid.

As for the GPM discs, give them a go. I like them.

I was just thinking, the standard bit left on my truck are:

* 2 of the 3 servos.
* Front and rear shock towers
* Exhaust manifold
* Roll bar
* Electric box
* Throttle linkage

So that means I almost have another truck laying around.
Albeit a broken one.

Scott that's how I got 2 trucks I did the same thing with the Genesis LE I replaced every part with Nemesis parts, and before long I had a second roller. It was cool and easier to explain to the wife I needed a second engine and radio, so she could run with me. lol worked like a charm, but she but I found she always says yes to what I "need"

I have pushed all of my luck with my car, so dare not try it with the RC truck too.
