Questions?? break set up?

I drive a 1/8 th scale truggy. Are the breaks suposed to be more in the front or more in the rear or both the same. I'm new and just looking for some pointers.

it depends on your track and tire combination. but i try to run a little tighter on the front then the rear. lets me load up the front a bit better in the turns.

Try more rear brakes than front , if you have too much front bias you can loose the ability for the truggy to turn into the corner by locking the wheels, just like a real car

No hard and fast rules but most would be around 40%front 60%rear just trial and error really
