Your controller might have a low rate, or EPA (end point ajustment) is off.
I drove aroung with my radio set to 70% a long time and couldn't understand why it fell dull.
Tjek all the setting of your radio. You really need to read the manual completely and understand what it is capable of. Otherwise you'll never get it running good.

Do you have the shim between the bolt heads and the brake pads? If you don't you need them. If you do, make sure they are screwed in far enough. You could also add more shims, or use a thicker one.

i needed to put 1.3mm shim between the screw and the pad,
put shims, do not overtight the screws...

if you look closely you can see the silver shim

If you switch to the losi brake pads and tighten the screws enough, you will not need any shims. Just another option.

I guess I shouldn't have had faith in you actually looking thru the site since you can't use the search function on here or google.

I don't have all the answers but I won't steer you wrong in where to find them
