I don't think there's much you can do about that. It's a 2WD car (brakes are at the rear wheels only) and it goes 60+ MPH. The Traxxas forum has some posts about using antenna tube to increase the servo's action on the pull, which allows it to lock the brakes.

If you leave the brake system alone, you'll have slower stops that are controllable. If you use the antenna tube mod, you can lock the wheels when braking but won't have control because of it. I tried the antenna tube mod, but ended up removing it.
