    Hi guys!

    Did you angled trim your brakes at the rear side to avoid dragging at the banks? if so is it catching up on slopes? Thanks.

    I post this question due to curiosity I do angled trim on front brakes to avoid braking at the banks but braking on the slopes wonder if same idea is applied on the rear.

    always tape up or trim the leading edge of the break or it can get caught and get worn out faster.

    Move the brake material in closer to the wheels to have less braking for bank sections. Also, I only use 1mm brake material. little need to trim it and it does not catch and peel off as the car runs. Adjust height with washers and spacers to the desired height.

    You can do that bro. Angled brake is the key to speed up on the bank and slow down at the slope section.
