There is a disc brake on the right side of the transmission easier to see if you remove the right side wheel assy.

Usually you can tighten the 1/2" nut in the center of the disc brake caliper to tighten/adjust it to stop better. Sometimes the brake has to come off and be taken apart/cleaned up because it gets rusted solid. The brake pads may also be worn out.
