    6250/2 are not for the monsters, they are for the pajero and leopard. 6250/3 are for the monster models. The difference is the height of the bowden cable holder that connects to the brake arm. The monster models need the longer ones due to the different front arms.

    Yeah i made that mistake and had to return tuned cable brakes for the MT as the cables were parallel with the wishbones! They sent me the specific ones for the MT. So there are 2 specific sets for the MT, standard and tuned hope that helps.

    no as stated above you need part # 6250/3 or the tuned brakes 6250/6. The /1 are for the marder models only, the /3 are specifically made for the monster truck models.

    I guess I would need the # 6250/3 for my Carson CRT as it's a stadium type truck

    not sure how I'd find out, the manual part # do not match up to FG. essentially I guess they are similar to the Firehammer MT seeing as I just had to order MT dog bones to fit my truck from Tower.
