Default Firestorm Brakes

Hello everyone,

I am having some issues with the brakes on my firestorm. Issues = It won't stop! Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
I already took the disc off and cleaned it, should this be greasy or dry? I also tried messing with the throttle adjustment but still couldn't tweak it


Thanks in advance

Thanks for the pic.
I actually tried cleaning the brakes by removing the disc and wiping down all the components and I messed up.
When reattaching the brakes I forgot to put the e-clip back on!
This leads me to two questions:

1.) I am missing the little metal rod that fits into the shaft below te Brake's 4 way plastic hub, what is this part called as I couldn't find it on tower.
2.) Is there an upgraded brake set I can get for this truck? or is the best way to upgrade the servo for better brake response?

Thanks agian
