      Does MCP make a vented rotor I’m not aware of?

      OTK has the best brakes I’ve driven but as Michael said, the factory issue pads are pretty soft and you’ll go through a lot of them. But the system allows for really precise brake modulation.

      I have used 3 different brakes.

      The Itaka system on Sodikarts–very good.

      Arrow on my BMax–also very good

      OTK on my Tonykart–not as good as the other two, but I drove a friend’s Tonykart and his were much better, so I have to assume his brake cable set-up/ the newness of his pads / bleeding made the difference, so I’m trying a few things.

      I hear than Ven 05 are the best OEM brakes, but that Kelgate makes a terrific aftermarket system.

      My kid hated the OTK brakes on his cadet.  The CRG Braking system worked much better.

      Why do you want to change your braking system?

      Arrow brakes are the best. Be sure you  follow the brake -in procedure.

      I’ll second (or third) the Ven05, and I’ve driven just about everything.
      Pre 2002 generic
      2000 up crg (touchy, but awesome)
      DC-One (Parolin self adjusting, very nice)
      Brembo (on a gp)
      Arrow
      Birel banana. They’re very good too
      but I’d have to say the Ven05.
      nice big caliper, well ventilated floating disc. Ive never heard of brake fade on the system.

      i have driven the brembo brakes on older karts and did not like those much, had 2000+ on a crg and love those and then my new kart has ceramic ven05 and they are fantastic, love how much feel they have and how hard the pedal stays
