Default Throttle / Brake settings - ESC vs TX

after peoples and experiences with setting up their throttle and brakes via either their ESC or TX

Most modern ESCs can set most of the following
- initial drive/punch
- initial brakes
- neutral/dead band
- max/full throttle/brakes
- auto/neutral/drag brakes

My TX can also do pretty much all of the above also, but not sure which will offer the best results (accurate, consistent?) overall.

I set most of the stuff on the ESC. Probably the only thing I change on my radio is brake dual rate. I set 100% brake on the ESC and tune it from there on the radio.

You could also play with curve on the radio, but I don't.

I've found a little bit of negative expo on the steering is good for me - gets rid of twitchyness on the straights, but steering is full speed when you really want it.

Haven't played around too much with brake and throttle, again just a little negative expo along with a bit of punch - again to soften the initial response as I'm learning and ham fisted

Thinking Has kinda come about with the new firmware for my LRP now having initial brake, as opposed to just drag brake and then wondering where is better to set it via.
