If you guys see any inaccuracies or improvements that need to made or anything that will make these tutorials more useful, please let me know.
Im still fairly new with the 5b and am taking the approach that folks reading the tutorials are new as well.

All help is appreciated.

Some I did to my brakes was add a bit of ballpoint pen spring on the shafts between the pads. Works great and they haven't dragged since!!

I have done this on many RCs.
Didnt even think to do it here.
Pen spring are ok but go flat quickly. A good spring steel or SS spring from the hardware store is a more permanent choice.
