Brakes worked well but I found out very quickly that they are basically useless cuz you don't need them. I never really let it coast too much so I don't remember how much drag they had but letting of for a split second to help rotate the car was all I needed. They seemed to slow down pretty well on their own because like I said the brake isn't really needed. They seem pretty torquey coming out of the corner cuz electric but then once the motors are super warm like you said they kinda fall flat and have no top end.

The first 5 laps felt QUICK.. coming around the right sweeper they have I felt like I was getting thrown to the left but then the motors would lose that little bit of power and the sweeper felt like a sunday drive and it was whack.

I've love to take a k2k kart on that track.

Also it's weird as shit to be racing and not hear any motors
