Running both push and drag brake will be counter productive. So run one or the other.

Why not have one slider? In the middle is off and in one direction is drag and in the other is push. This way it's impossible for the end user to get this wrong.

I understand that it is counter productive to have both active. So why not eliminate the possibility to have both active by either putting both on one slider, as suggested by g26er, or having a toggle control to turn one or the other on.

I am just tossing the idea out there for your consideration.

While I say it's counter productive some have used both on very large tracks.

We could merge the two as stated, maybe in the future. Push control does change depending on how long you've been at WOT where as drag brake does not.

Hi All,
Does anyone have a good setup (and FDR) for an LRP x11 17.5? I fried the front bearing on my Duo 2 and Iím pretty sure the LRP doesnít turn the same RPMs.

Thanks,
Jose

if i have any say on this, i vote no. it took you 2 months to convince me to run push and now everyone at my lhs runs push. i love it and have not found a setup that does not work better with push.

push is not the inverse of drag brake. so don't merge the 2 settings. and I can see running both

Can you explain please how they can be used to compliment each other? Very interested to hear. Thanks.

I fail to understand how they could complement each other.

Push control keeps the motor rolling and from what i gather was really designed for brushed motors to make the decelaration softer.

Drag break does just the opposite. It makes the motor feel like it is being dragged down like a brushed motor when you let off the throttle. This gives the car a more positive feel.

So if this somehow works together, I have yet to understand it that way.

Maybe you can use the push control to fine tune in the amount of drag break as it acts as a counter to it.

If I am totally off here please someone let me know.

Unlike drag brakes, Push is only active for so long after you return to neutral. How long is calculated based on how much time was spent accelerating and how much throttle was applied. Any push settings take priority over drag brakes, but once the calculated effect for push is over, your drag brake setting takes over; be it 0 or 100. Whether you could benefit from this softened transition from on power to brakes depends on your driving style.

That sounds like a wisely chosen combination of the two might help with running a oneway.
