Maybe you want to try a chassis adj'..Toe.
Rather than if you'r elect', mess with any fwd/rev throtle trim knob on you'r Transmiter?!?
Toe......Frt out - Rr in, you can tune this kind
of physical drag on anything with wheel's
Excess adj will enhance that characteristic but sacrafice another.
A little rear toe in gives all my stuff a drag/static brake at the sacrafice of top end speed.
But Man will it Slow for control/turns,,,other adj.

What is your truck doing coming into a corner? Is it pushing or plowing?

Drag brake is a real effective setup option for turning. Read your speed controls manual and try it out. I use between 20-30% drag brake. I have it high enough so I don't even have to press brake going around corners.

Drag brake is just like an engine braking in a real car.
