As a practical matter start out on a gravel parking lot where you can easily see the marks made when you make a hard stop. The it takes several runs to get the brake bias somewhere close so you have even braking on both ends..then we proceed to the track where we can make faster runs and do some more testing to get a fine tune on the brake bias..Hope this helps a bit..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
