Default Knurled stoppers on the brake line

what are these used for? I read that they help determine the brake bias. Can anyone dumb this down for me please?

very simple really. Since the arm pulls both brake rods at the same time, and same rate, these knurled knobs let you choose if there is more braking in the front, or the rear, by simply turning whichever one you want, in so it engages more or sooner then the other. IE: You want more rear brake, turn the knurled knob on the rear side of the center diff, in towards the servo arm, so more force is applied to the rear brake disk, then the front. Hope that makes sense.
