Final Perparations Part II

I spent a little time getting these Eagle Racing brakes spaced and installed correctly.

Admittedly, they are not installed on the correct chassis, and for a basic TT-01 owner, they'd be awesome.

For me however, the bearings included are terrible and the thin aluminium needed to support the bearing insert is weak and bends easily. I've already lost a few screws from them, but for the very cheap price, I didn't expect the best. After changing and installing different drive pins, spacers, screws and bearings, they seem ok.

The final touch was to add a sticker to mine. While I was at it, I printed the Re-86 and RAYS stickers for my new wheels.



  1. mr. Russ can you please tell me how do you make these awesome stickers?

  2. I used silver ink jet printable sticker sheet.
    I can use white also or other styles.

    In Japan A4 sheets are available at an electronics store.

    Just print from photoshop or inkscape
