    well i hope this helps but im nto sure if its what you asre exactly looking for.lol

    The GT7 lets you set the minimum braking force for each
    of the 7 Throttle Programs––each Program stores its own value
    independently. The value for the minimum braking force is a
    percentage of full-brakes (transmitter’s throttle at full-brake position).
    The 7 available choices are 20, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, & 55%.
    Brakes then range from selected value to 100% braking force.
    Selecting Minimum Brake %--TRANSMITTER ON
    With transmitter ON & GT7 connected to receiver and battery:
    1. TURN ON THE SPEED CONTROL’S POWER
    2. PRESS & HOLD SPEED CONTROL’S SET BUTTON
    With transmitter throttle at neutral, press and hold SET
    button on GT7 until all 4 LEDs turn on.
    3. PUSH TRANSMITTER THROTTLE TO FULL-BRAKES
    When the transmitter’s throttle is moved to the full-brake
    position while still pressing SET button on the GT7, only
    the blue status LED will remain on (2nd LED from top).
    4. RELEASE SPEED CONTROL’S SET BUTTON
    Blue status LED will flash. The number of times the LED
    flashes indicates the Minimum Brake selection (1 of 7).
    5. PRESS & RELEASE SET BUTTON TO CHANGE SELECTION
    Each press will change to the next consecutive Minimum
    Brake value. (After value #7, the sequence begins again at value #1)
    6. WAIT FOR SPEED CONTROL TO EXIT PROGRAMMING
    When SET button is not pressed for about 3 seconds, the
    selected Minimum Brake value is loaded into memory.
    The blue status LED will then flash a few times rapidly, then
    the status LEDs will come on, one at a time, scrolling from topto-
    bottom indicating that you are exiting programming. The
    red status LED will then turn on solid, indicating that the speed
    control is at neutral and ready to go.
    Selecting Minimum Brake %--WITHOUT TRANSMITTER
    With the transmitter power OFF (or input harness disconnected):
    1. TURN ON THE SPEED CONTROL’S POWER
    Green and red status LEDs will both turn on solid
    indicating no input signal is being received.
    2. PRESS & HOLD SPEED CONTROL’S SET BUTTON
    Continue to hold SET button on GT7 beyond the point
    when all 4 LEDs turn on, until only the blue status LED is on.
    3. RELEASE SPEED CONTROL’S SET BUTTON
    Blue status LED will flash. The number of times the LED
    flashes indicates the Minimum Brake selection (1 of 7).
    4. PRESS & RELEASE SET BUTTON TO SELECT PROGRAM
    Each press will change to the next consecutive Program.
    5. WAIT FOR SPEED CONTROL TO EXIT PROGRAMMING
    When SET button is not pressed for about 3 seconds, the
    blue status LED flashes rapidly, the four status LEDs scroll
    from top-to-bottom, and ESC exits back to neutral.
    The GT7’S 7th Throttle Program can be customized to fine
    tune the speed control to feel just the way you like it.
    The 7th Throttle Program lets you tune the following items:
    • Drive Profile--1 of 5 Drive Profiles (each profile is comprised of
    Drive PWM Frequency, Minimum Drive %, & number of throttle steps
    for the transmitter’s forward/drive trigger throw).
    • Brake Profile--1 of 5 Brake Profiles (each Brake Profile is comprised
    of Brake PWM Frequency & number of braking steps for brake throw).
    • Braking Type--1 of 2 types of braking styles (STD.BRAKE--Novak’s
    Constant Force braking or DRAG BRAKE style braking).
    • Minimum Brake Percentage--1 of 7 settings from 20 to 55%.
