    I wanted to get some feedback from other users, to what settings they have the brake pressure set at. Currently mine is set at 97% can absolutely stand on the brake pedal when braking without the back stepping out or brakes locking, with smooth gear down changes. I use the old Marcos Ambrose technique... wait wait wait then from 6th to 2nd for example.

    I know Gregory Degreef (RD V8 Supercar Champ) runs it around 88-91.

    I usually run it around 75 in the V8s and also I use a very similar technique to Scorpio015. For example at Bathurst I always no matter what car I use I go straight from 6th to 3rd at the chase I never use 2nd there at all.

    Every PC is different so the setting can/ dose vary. The choice of controller makes a difference also. This is one eerier were it's a personal choice. As you can see from the posts above people are running a variance of between 75 to 97. If as you say your running 97 and can not get the car to lock brakes it maybe the sensitivity setting on your controller.

    Different with every mod for me. Some cars lock up easy even when low Brake bias to the front some not.
    F1 is always try to have close to 100%, WTM i drive with 90 %, V8's if remember correctly also. And Clio's i even can drive with 60:40 and 100%.
