Your manual is correct ....ATL increases/decreases servo travel on the brake side only. My CRX is the first radio I've had with ATL and it's a feature I've really grown to like. I usually use it to make small adjustment to braking while I'm in for a pit stop.

Is channel EPA the same? Just set EPA brake to maximum level of travel- say to just where the servo starts to strain a bit (and same for throttle so servo doesn't tug on carb horn trying to go past it's limits) My steering servos are around 65% (full lock) 91% for throttle, 70% for brake, 65% for 3ch (second servo, mixing)

Might move the steering placement on notch towards the hub (more torque) then increase EPA for steering.

EPA has priority over ATL. ATL will only adjust the travel within the limits you have set with your EPA adjustment.

Default RE: ATL ?

From the manual

DEFINITIONS:
• ATL, electronic: (Adjustable throttle limiter) Adjusts total travel available to the
braking side of the throttle servo, similar to adjusting EPA, but allows adjustment
“on the fly” when ATL is assigned to a dial. When brake mixing is used in the
unmixed mode, this adjusts the rear brake servo without changing amount of braking
to front brake servo.
• ATL, mechanical: Decreases the physical distance the brake trigger can move.
See p. 51.


Since T/B servo will be set "on the bench" it's unlikely you need on the fly dial constant adjustments, or perhaps if brake is insufficient on a new model- hold up rear wheels, go into EP mode and increase a brake servo movement a couple of notches, then try braking again (not you need on the fly adjustments like steering centre points if it drifts to the left/right) I've disabled the two rotary dials on the index finger.
