I saw while looking at a couple people albums that their ols and cars have brake disks. do they actually work or are they for show? and do they come stock?

Thanks,
Jim

Two different issues. The older MR-01s and new i-series mini-zs don't have the brake function. There are also decorative inserts you can run behind your rim so it looks like there is a brake disc in there. Somone also makes a light that mounts in the rim, but I'm not sure if it is just for show or if it is supposed to simulate hot brakes.

I didn't think of using a scale model brake assembly. That looks awesome.

What scale did you use? 1/24 or 1/32?

they are froma a wrc xara, i think the brand is airfix, they are 1/24, the only thing that you need is to make the center hole big enough

you can make your owns, just need to buy some waterslide decal paper for inkjet printer, and thats all, you make your desing in the computer, and print it, that paper is like the ones that come whit the scale models and apply in the same way
