How to install eNVy dual brakes..

Post by CRSMP5 » Sat Nov 15, 2003 10:11 pm

Image
the HB brake hex, Preferred IF a aluminum hex is to be used read this
Image
the Kevlar brake kit
also Aramid kit

Image
1st thing to do is install the brake hex, use loctite on the set screw. Set the pad with coating on over the holes

Image
Set on a rotor and the brass caliper

Image
Set on the 2nd disk and the 2nd coated caliper, coating must face the disk..

Image
This is how I line up the holes of the caliper to the holes in the tranny to start the screw.

Image
Remove one and instert the screw. 11-20-03 it uses the stock savage screws

Image
Finished...

Hey, if you do this, make sure to use the steel brake hub. I installed these parts on wednsday, minus the brake hub. Not having built the RTR, I assumed the hub was steel, and was in such a hurry...

Screwed up a lot of parts. Brake hub, rotors, pads, spur gear. The guys at the SC store are being really cool and replacing the brake kit for free, I just have to send them the old one. They recommend against the aluminum hub.

I used the plastic hub. Not good. I was in such a rush to install my new stuff, i failed to notice the stock one was plastic.

I have an Integy one right now, but ordered the hb one, along with the kevlar brake set, looking forward to testing it out. I had the hb brakes installed, but broke the dogbone, and lost the brake discs in the process, although I had just ordered the kevlar setup. Must be the hb brake telling me to get lost.
