DIY front brakes for MZ1 Rally Game chassis

MZ1 Rally Game

Some enterprising Italian has decided that his MZ1 Rally Game chassis needed front brakes so he set about making it and then telling us how he did it. What he has essentially done is add a brake disk to the middle lay shaft and then mounted a braking system to the lower side of the radio plate which is activated by the throttle servo through a lever. The article does points out what i believe to be the big problem with this, stripping the front belt and pulley, but they say that this isnt a problem because of the way they have done it, also the Rally Game rubber tyres probably dont bite as much under braking as foam so the pressure will be less. They also state that it will require a very heavy duty front steering servo to handle the extra strain caused by the front wheel brakes.

Check out the article (in Italian) with lots of pictures here.
