Default Picco Brakes

That car was designed to run on the track, not in the street. If you are talking about running it on the track and spinning out, you should adjust the brakes.

When you have the brake applied, the wheels may still turn as you roll the car forward. Do this while applying a slight amount of force to the wheels by pushing down on the car (the roll bar) as its moves forward. This is a good starting point. If your wheels are locked when you do this, your car will probably spin.

Can you adjust the servo settings on your transmitter to minimize the travel when you push the trigger for brake?

The only thing missing in the photo is the servo arm. Does your linkage look like the photo?
