Default Brake torque how high?

For * and G'* yesterday, I tested how high I could get the rpms with the brakes applied. It got just above 2500 rpm before I started moving!! Isn't that kinda high? Could it indicate a TC problem?

I'd say your TC is working fine, and I'd be looking at your brakes instaed. I've never done it exactly that way. When I rev in gear with the brake on, I also have the PB set.

I know my brakes could use a little work, the rears have recently started a little grind noise and the is some pulsing.

I thought stall speed was lower than that.

I can get to about ~4000 before the motor starts to stall.
