    do you have a failsafe? if not you should get one. it might run by itself becasue of interference

    also for the break not working you might need to tighten the linkages. Also check to see if there is any oil on the break pad this will also amek the break not stop. Check your reciver batteries and the controler batteries.

    Fail safe for sure also check the brake adopter , on rtr GT they are plastic and wear very fast, there is a metal one that AE makes that works great. The brake adopter is located on the slipper that slides on to the top shaft off the tranny.

    you might have to adjust your idle stop screw aswell. idle might be too high

    Good point, I'd do a visual , The brake system is not the best there is fading on the stock set up. I'm sure that your problem is a combination of brake adaptor, and adjustment, what is your idle setting does it idle high?

    the idle is at stock set up. the brakes will just will not hold at all. but when i run the car at full speed then bring it to a stop it takes a long time to slow it down
