Question fiddy disc brakes

Just seeing if its worth it to make the swap. Anyone on here replaced drums for the discs, and what did you think about it. Mainly just want to swap on the front end, not so much the back end.
Thoughts, suggestions, etc....

What are you doing with it?
I dont think it would be worth it unless you are building some big monster motor to go with the brake upgrade.
Kitacto has some awsome pads that work just like disk.

Staying w/ the stock motor, maybe a 88cc kit later, but nothing bigger than that. Just was checking the pros and cons before making any final decisions. Who sells the kitacto pads (local shops, online, etc.) Want to get the stoppies on lock down and right now my front brakes are extra boo boo. I need a pretty much a new front brake drum/assembly, just wanted to see before any purchases were made.

If your looking to roll long stoppies, disc brakes are a must. I'm very limited on how far a can roll one becuase I never know if my brakes are going to catch, lock up or barely work at all, drums are very inconsistant. The longest I've rolled was around 30ft. I looped one at 35mph also, like I said inconsistant.


Oh and 50stunt.com..... Riiiiiip oooofff
