Dynamic Braking Question

To the all

When the slot car does dynamic breaking in what direction does the power attempt to travel? Does the power go the same direction as the current which came from the power supply OR does the power attempt to go the reverse direction? I would guess the reverse direction since there are brake light system which only light based upon the direction power travels through a diode?

Thanks VERY much!!

Theres a diagram on my web site , a lot of the preston guys have used this it works well.
For Scalex I have now advised the use of 50 ohm x3 watt cermet pots costing about £4 each available through Farnell components in the UK instead of the heavy duty ones on the diag as the original was designed for use with more powerfull motors .
