Maybe you should adjust your brake end point travel so that your wheels don't lock up. Set up the brakes for good slowing down power but not locking up the wheels at medium speed. Then increase the braking in small increments as needed. Remember when the wheels lock up, you lose control of the car. Also if you need to soften the braking action you can add a small length of fuel tubing (say 4mm ) in the linkage.

The 300 oz-in of torque in a touring car is way overkill. 120 0z-in torque servos work very well in 1/10 sedans.
