Brakes won't work...
I have a Traxxas Nitro Rustler with a 2.5 TRX motor. I have been running it just fine with the brakes working perfect. Then I tried to take it out and run it today and the brakes won't work at all. The servo doesn't even push that away when I apply them on my reciever. Any suggestions?

With the radio and receiver off, turn the servo horn to mimic braking and check for binding in the linkage.

Also, if using a non-stock radio/receiver, check to see if your EPA is adjusted correctly.

There is a little bit of binding...how do I fix this issue?

Without knowing where the binding is occurring exactly it would be difficult to guide you through fixing it. I looked at the manual and the pictures on the Traxxas website and I couldn't get a clear idea of what the issue could be.

My best advise is to look at it logically and work on it in steps. Start at the transmission/brake disc and move along the linkage to the servo looking for anything that might be causing the issue.
