if you still have the plastic brake in there, check it out. It is likely that it has a lot of wear. Replace it with a fiber one.

More than likely there has been some wear in the Brake Disc/Shoe assembly. Follow the instructions or visit the HPI website on how to properly adjust. If you are not hard on the brakes, the Plastic Brake Disc can last a long time. If you are MELTING the Disc, time for a better Brake Disc. It all depends on your driving style.
