You can also use (if your radio has it) a brake jump to get half your braking when you simply tap the brake, I do this to jump over the brake play that lets the car roll freely and still get immediate braking (not yet locking up) just as soon as I touch the brake.

Hi Robin,

Brake jump, is this a specific function? Or is it brake expo dialled to Positive?

Thanks for sharing your tips.
