There could be a few issues. Is the throttle trim bumped up, this will affect your brakes. If that's good did you check the brake pad screws, these get loose from time to time. Then of course the linkage...has it been adjusted lately? Also the brake disc itself needs to be scuffed up with some heavy grit sandpaper occasionally.

Thanks Jjm3 will look that up, and Dad like rc too thanks for the info.. I had a gal friend get this and first time out she burnt up plastic spur gear and hit a pole and replaced it and when i was working on tunning it yesterday i noticed the linkage for the brake all apart and thoought thats why it doesn't stop...lol.. I have alot of redcat stuff through trades and what not good product and this is new to me because never had any problems with them until this caldera 3.0 came around...lol... But thats the fun thing in the hobby is tinkering with stuff.....I appreciate the input guys thanks and god bless...Terry
