View Full Version : I can't stop it!!!

06-10-2000, 09:17 PM
Guys, I was using my T-maxx today and I noticed that the brakes were not stopping the truck as quickly. I have no idea what's wrong. The T-maxx used to stop instantly when I apply the brakes, but now, it is much slower. The brakes seem to be in perfect condition, with little wear and tear. Any help would be appreciated.

If you can't see my tail light, then you're ahead of me. :)

BorG, as you know I don't have a T-maxx (YET, i plan on getting one a.s.a.p.) but your servo(s) maybe "out of whack" try the trim adjuster on the TQ radio. my friend has a nitro with a fiberous disc brake and he had to re-adjust the servo after he broke it in.

low batt?

also use sand paper to roughen up the braking surfaces

Check and see if your brakes are gathering fuel residue. If so then make a little shield out of some scrap lexan or a 2 liter soda bottle.

u might need a better throttle/brake servo to pull it up better..?

Check the hex, it for some wierd reason could be stripped.

You use brakes? I didn't receive the memo.

maybe, you just wore the disk down a little and its taking longer to bite. try the trim.
