Default SZD-55 Wheel Brake Adjustment

Need input on wheel brake adjustment for an SZD-55. The wheel brake is
strong, but comes on too soon when opening spoilers. I would like to delay
the brake activation some. The cable adjuster at the wheel is already backed
all the way out. Do I increase the disk spacing from pads on the wheel
assembly by adjustment at the hub first then adjust cable? Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Wells Morse

I'm pretty sure you need to go the other way with it.... If it is a standard
cable type affair.
