Default Separate brake system

Just pondering if anyone has ever suggested to the TX manufacturers that the brake on a gas buggy be on another trigger for controllability? I donít race gas but to me it would make sense if you could keep your buggy in the power band while cornering/braking you would d be able to keep the rpmís up and exit faster. I guess this thought stems from my my motocross days on a two stroke. I know the radio manufacturers would have a costly endeavor creating a new kind of radio but hey, Iíve suggested more complicated things before to only have them show up on the market years later.

This is why they have adjustable clutches, different pipes and manifold controls how to adjust the powerband, engine modifications to adjust the powerband, different suspension and tire setups, etc. what you are proposing will never come to fruition because it’s unnecessary. You have to learn how to drive with a system that’s been working like a top for years.
