Default engine trubbles

hey, i have a team losi truck (but im putting it on the on-road page cause i think on-road guys know more about engines) with a dynamite .15 engine in it, and every time i put on the break the engine quits, i have no clue why it does this, it might have somthing to do with the idle but im not shure, can anyone help me?!?!?!?!?!?!

when you have a new motor it is usually set very rich from the factory you have to turn the idle up some

sounds like either your carb is clsing all the way when you hit the brake or the clutch is still engaged when you hit the brakes and it stops the engine

i'v been leaning it out since christmas so its not to rich, if anything its too lean, but sice i'v been leaning it so much i'v had to turn down the idel to stop it from rolling on idel, so im thinking the idel could be so low that the glow plug could cool down enuff between stroke that its not ignighting the next stroke
