Default braking at full throtle?

when i open up the carb all the way at full throtle, it applies the brakes. It seems no matter how much i adjust it it still pushes the needle (not the carb needle the one that is atatched to the brake pad). Anybody else have this problem?

Oh, I think I understand what you meant to say.

You have a "cam" which pushes the brake pad against the disc. Your cam is pointed in the wrong direction.

If it works propperly other than that & is assembled like the picture in the manual & the linkage rods on the servo are shimmed propperly so they dont rub hard on the brake rod eyelet then grind the back of the cam. Some brands are real touchy with this,I believe if you look in the tips section at the jammin site chad bradly has a picture & description on how to do it.Basicly grind the back side of the cam off so it cant hit the pad if something is setup wrong & the rods get pushed backwards.

Just make sure everything is setup correctly before you do that.
