Default tekin fx vs tekin fxr pro braking

Hey guys i got a tekin fx on my f1 and a tekin fxr pro on my ta-05. The braking on my ta-05 is beautiful but on the f1 its like theres no braking at all. Anybody know what the deal is with this? thanks.

I can only assume that your F1 car is rear wheel drive, while your TA05 is all wheel drive. When you're braking on the F1 car, the motor can only stop the rear wheels while on the TA05, all four wheels get braking.

I believe the reason you feel better brakes with the TC is the over all gear reduction. In F1 you are probably close to 3.7:1 where in the TC it is higher. Higher numerical reduction not only multiplies torque on acleleration but also on breaking.
