You need to go to EPA in your radio. You will EPA for throttle and brakes. Once your in the EPA screen you will need to push you trigger forward as that will put you in EPA for the brakes. More than likely you will see the number 100. You want to lower this number to lets say 50. If you need more or less brake increase or decrease as need to get more or less brake.

You can also use "Exponential" to soften the brakes, or give them a more progressive feel. Play with the settings in your transmitter, you'll get it.

Cool! You're in a minority man... NOBODY reads the manual anymore! They just rush into it, get stuck, and ask for advice online.
