Not to worry I fixed that when I installed the engine.

cool...
I used to have problems when I hadn' done that... I would use the brake and it would stay on and stop my car making me lose lots of time, but when I bent it, it worked perfect...

funny you should say that towards the end of last season I had a hell of a time with my brakes staying locked on finnaly put a wheel collar on the linkage to stop it from staying stuck but it still happens from time to time. I still have to try adjusting the EPA on my radio that should solve the problem.

Some say that what I should do is get the longer aluminum arm which stays more direct with the servo arm...

I used a light spring from the brake arm to the shock tower. That eliminated the sticking brake problem.

that might work as well.

I still plan on getting a higher torque servo for the throttle as well as a faster steering servo.
