You have two options, first is to use longer bolts with nuts on the inside to lock the brake bolts in place, like this pic shows:

Second option is to use longer bolts, but install them from the inside, and use nuts on the outside, like this pic shows:

Modified RC - Lots of questions...

How thick is the disc itself? Looks about the same as a stock 5IVE-T disc from the pics.

Wondering if I could somehow use them with MIP pads or the Losi pads that are on the new 5IVE-B. The MIP and Losi discs are probably like half the thickness as your discs.

There probably wouldn't be any gap left in between the pads unless I make longer standoffs.

Any thoughts about producing another version that is thinner in order to work with other systems?

Any reason I couldn't just slap them in the lathe and thin them out a little if need be?

Has anyone had any issue fitting them on other brand outdrives besides just the stock Losi ones? Team Chase or FLM perhaps?

Hey Art,

The discs are 1/8 inch thick.

You can probably use them with the thinner pads, but like you said longer standoffs would be required.

To make them thinner would probably require a different material other than aluminum, I don't have any plans on making a thinner version.

It would be very hard to thin them out on a lathe, the ends of the discs are very thin and would easily get distorted when chucking on them.

I have not heard of any fitting issues using my brake discs with other brand outdrives.



Have a great day, and let me know if you have any more questions.
