A car with 3 wheel brakes will set up real
easy, just hit the brakes
seriously, the thing you need to consider is
that in hard braking the car WILL NOT turn right to avoid a wreck. you either , turn right and then hit the brakes OR lock 'em up and slide straight into them with the front tires turned to the right.
3 wheel will allow a "tighter" set up because you can make it turn with the brake
pedal. hope this helps

3 wheels works good on short tracks with tight turns i ran a car one time on a 1/2 mile with sweeping turns and hated them made the car way to loose
