Questions?? Evolva Handling Issues

Eveytime I brake, the car it pulls to the right hard. Almost into a direct spin. It tracks pretty straight, and the set up seems solid. Can someone help me out please?

You have to set your brakes up to slow the car down, not to lock the tires. Any 1/8th scale car will do that if you lock up your brakes. You have to back off of the endpoint on the radio until the car slows down without locking up.

Also, make sure your rear droop and toe in is exactly equal left to right. The slightest difference can cause the same problem.

both are right, too much brake locks the rear end and any little imbalance will bring the rear around.

unequal rear droop and tweak will make it worse.

if you are having trouble with too little brake sensitivity, then you could try a longer piece of fuel tubing to soften the brake response.
