Your radio should have a switch for the throttle that says normal or reversed. Check that first, I think you'll find the problem there.

yeah, as what they said, ensure the servo moves in proper direction with the reverse/normal switch on the TX.

you might have improper timing on the servo and brake linkage. make sure you have a very little bit of drag brake or the brake is "just" free when the servo in neutral position.

the point on the servo horn for brake linkage is also important. it is likely you have your point on the most outter point on your horn which makes brake "on" under full throttle.

You may check this site on information about throttle/brake linkage.
