It`ll probably take a process of elimination to track down the fault, try...
* turning on the receiver & transmitter etc and then applying the brake....see if the servo is actually working...check the throw on the brake lever, linkage etc to see if theyre actually doing their job of applying the brake.
* If these are all working fine, then I`d be checking the brake shoes...are they still intact?.....if these are all okay, then go to the brake disc....is it okay? has it got some crap (fuel, dirt etc) on it that may be stopping it from working correctly.
Good luck
