I think you can find it over on Youtube.
That may help out the newer guys who
aren't used to setting up there cars yet.
Yeah, I have seen that awhile ago and it's as useless as anything else. Although because it has Drake's name tied to it then it has to be the gospel. Throw out the numbers and just say if you have more rear brake the car will rotate into the corners on entry. Too much front brake and it will push into the corners. Watching the pros this weekend at motorama and most of them did neither and neither the front or rear wheels appeared to be locking up on corner entry but the cars seemed to be able to stop on a dime smoothly.

He also stated that you should try different settings
to see what worked for you. I guess it's like adjusting
the carb on a nitro engine. There is no majic setting
for each engine made. It takes time and effort to set
up a car and get it to respond the way you want it to.
That's all a part of the fun of this sport.

for the most part i use 50/50 breaking.. but i do run single disc up front and dual disc in the rear... this seems to work the best for me... another racer i know like f30/r70 he loves to slide sideways into a corner.. do what feels best to you... there is no right or wrong way to set up an rc car.. it is what is best for you and your driving... guys always tell me to run this or that and i just dont like it.. but i am fast the way my cars are.... stay true to who you are and you will become faster at it with time... jeremy
