Default Braking Help

I just got done running my truggy.
So when i press the brake on my radio it takes a couple of feet for the truggy to slow down. Seems like the brake isnt being pushed hard enough.
Im guessing it has something to do with the servo and battery.
But is there another way to adjust it so it doesnt take so long to come to a complete stop. If so lmk,.
thanks, josh.

that is normal, it would take a very strong servo with very good brake pads/disks for the truck to screech to a hault. when racing you don't really want the tires to lock up in the corners. you can try adjusting the linkage or epa on the radio. also you can tighten the screws that hold the calipers so there is less gap for the disk.

Like J Blaze stated I would tighten the screws on the brake calipers and/or adjust your brake linkage first before spending money on a new servo or battery. Also check your End Point Adjusments on your radio.

If you race, you really don't want too much brake especially when entering turns. The last thing you want during a race is to lock up the wheels making the rear slide loose and you end up spinning your truggy out.
