You need to adjust your idle, what's happening is every time you apply your brakes you also close your carby throttle, your truck is not getting enough fuel because you have your idle set a fraction low. Simply turn or your electrics then take your air filter off, now adjust the screw under your carby until you have 1-2mm opening when you apply your brakes.

    Your idle screw is set too low, it's the screw underneath and directly in front of your carby You need to turn your electrics on take your air filter off and adjust the idle screw until you see a gap of 1-2mm inside your carby when you apply the brake.

Throttle/brake linkage might need adjusted. Also with the air filter off, check to make sure that the idle screw is adjusted correctly. With the throttle at neutral there should be a slight opening in the carb.

Traxxas revo 3.3 running problems

Maybe running to lean or to rich. When you accelerate put youre hand where the exhaust is and you should get a light spraying of unburnt fuel over hands(lovely!). If you do you may be able to screw in high end needle in a bit and i mean just a bit. If you hear the engine note raise a bit with a slightly higher pitch then you are running to lean and you will want to unscrew the high end needle valve asap.
Also check youre idle screw and make sure thats not closing the carb and stopping any airflow into engine. Let me know how it goes.

Trouble startin , does not go full throttle and keeps stoppin.

First make sure you have about 1mm gap on carb opening and fine tune with trims. The high end needle can now be turned in about 1/4 of a turn and start. Keep trying to start while turning high end needle in a fraction in at a time, say after about 5 to 8 pulls of starter. Once engine is started come back out with screw a fraction to see if runs ok if not go back in.
