    hey i have a t-maxx too. mine is fairly new but the 2.5 engine i personally think is a piece of crap. That was one of the first things i replaced i am in the process of ordering a new engine.

    But with yours it sounds to me as if your engine is overheating......that would be my guess. Because when the engine stalls when shifting into 2nd that means either that the engine is not hot enough or to hot, but since you said that it stalls when you brake makes me thing it is an overheating problem.

    If it was me i would dump the engine while you can still get some $$$ out of it when u sell it but if you dont want to go with that route you can
    1st-get a onboard temp monitor and see what the temp of your engine gets to
    2nd- if your engine is overheating i would reccomend a Crazy Nut Cooling Head

    Hope i could help, Good Luck!

    If it stalls when you apply the brakes, your idle is set too low and the brake is closing it enough to kill the engine, raise the idle just a bit.
    When it goes into second, does it stall or bogg down?

    Do the wheels lock up, or does it just kill the engine and keep rolling? It could be something in the trans locking up, like the one-way bearing.
