hello, we are looking forward to implement cutting brakes in our baja atv this year. i have a few doubts to be clarified-
most atvs have inboard braking in the rear so how do we implement cutting brakes ?
would cutting brakes in the front be efficient enough ?
how to proceed..

The only solution - give separate brake rotors in the rear, or if you need cutting brakes working in the front then find a way to put the engine at the front.

Cutting brakes work effectively only with differentials. Even with the engine in the rear, if you manage to drive your front wheels via a differential, there shouldn't be any difference.
