Click 5T parts by vendor, then select micro hobby, It should be there.
Here is the link.

If it's not showing for you, let me know. It is working from where I'm at.

Thanks,

That looks beefy. Is it similar material as the stock or maybe billet? Also, are you using the stock pads with it?

Chris
material is a billet piece from copper 954.
im using it with stock pads
no more fading or brake warpage.
little heavier, but u got all the metal to cool up quickly.
for the best brake disc replacement, u can't go wrong with micro hobby disc. Price is also awesome.
Good job micro. hope to see more of ur collection.

I was going to answer earlier, but got tied up trying on some new stuff.


Here is the original thread started on the disks...

The weight is 1.9 ozs (55 grams)
Made with Aluminum Bronze 954C
This replaces the 3 stock disks and we have been using stock brake pads as well as stock servo.

I have been running my disk now for weeks.... bashing and over at Phatdads track ..

It is showing no wear and locks the tires up every time .. this is an excellent upgrade to the brake system..
