I do have difficulties setting up the brakes of my MRX-4X for one particular track.
The track has a fast open section which requires heavy braking at the end of the straight in order to slow the car down for a carousel. I usually set the brakes up (via EPA of my Futaba 3PK transmitter) to have strong braking effect with minimum skidding of the rear tyres in this braking zone.
After the carousel we have a technical infield with two extremely slow and tight hairpins. The car arrives at the hairpins with medium speed and will slide in the rear after a short distance once I hit the brakes. Because of the fast section prior to the carousel I canīt turn down EPA on the brakes, instead I will simulate ABS pulsing with my index finger (if you know what I mean
to avoid lock-up. This helps, but is not consistent from lap to lap.
Any ideas on how to improve braking into the slow hairpins? Is anyone running drag brakes in 1/8th? This could probably help - Strong brakes after the straigth by hitting the lever and light braking with a drag brake set-up for the hairpins...
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Best regards, Stefan
