Default What's the proper way to setup your brakes?

As per the title, what is the proper way to setup your brakes on the 1/8th scale buggy (Losi 8)?

I'm looking for more front bias then back, but don't really know how to judge...

pick up the front and the rear of the car and test them individually....use the adjustment nob things to apply more pressure or less if needed.

Easiest way:

Apply the brake on your radio. Then start at front. Hold one wheel so it will not turn. Then turn the other by hand. Adjust the linkage until it feels right. Then repeat on the rear. This is easier to get the bias right versus rolling it on the table. Try it.
