This is common with all 8th scale Lola body cars. Remember, the front has a free-spinning one way and the rear is a solid axle. When you medium to hard brake, it will lock up the back tires while the front tires continue to rotate, thus causing the spinout. You will have to very lightly ease onto the brakes to slow the car down or set up some drag brake so that you will get slight braking when going into neutral trigger. However, anytime the car has any momentum and you suddenly brake, the car will lock the rear and spin out.

The problem is you have too much brake which stops the wheels completely when the brakes are applied. You don't want that it causes you to spin. Decrease the EPA in your radio is the easiest and fastest way or back down the amount of brake you have in your linkage. Easy Fix!!
