They are 2 different types of brakes. What are you trying to do?

I use 20-25% drag brake to increase my off power steering. Just enough to keep weight transfered to the front, but not enough to make my jumping complex. It deos bring the nose down a little for me, mid air.

Antilock brakes aren't a true feedback antilock brake system and really don't work for me.

In 1/10th I use very little brake, set the Epa really low. Don't really need to stop well at all on the tracks I'm running.

In 1/8th epa and proper droop settings make the car stop fine. The E 1/8ths don't seem to have a lock up problem, even seem to be more consistant than the nitros when braking.
