    Anything is possible with the right amount of money and because of this no one that I know of makes them. You'll need to fashion some brakes, calipers, cables and install a servo. If you want to undertake it and have success share pics!

    Are you wanting the looks of disc brakes, or are you wanting actual functional disc brakes on all wheels?

    May I ask why? There is a guy that built a Slash sized TT, gasser, that made some for the front that kinda worked, cable operated, while using the regular diff disc brake for the rear. Its a nitro powered rig, not electric. At the end of the day, performance did not equal the effort. Get a 4x and be time and money ahead. Hate to be the nay sayer regarding innovation, but it is what it is.

    You might be able to modify the disc brake setup from a nitro model, such as a nitro slash, slayer, ect.
