    The idle is set too low, turn it in a little. It does idle ok right, if not check the clutch or bearings.

    Oh yay the joys of a 2.5 carb. LOL. Make sure that your slide is not sticking open. Making you think that your idle is set and when you hit the brake the servo forces it to fully close. I have seen it time and time again. On about 30 different Maxxes. Sticking slide. Give it a look see.

    With the truck just sitting there, you hit the brakes and it dies?
