Mine touches around 80% of throttle! Should I Set my transmitter to not allow 100% Throttle?

It shouldnt be hitting at 80%. I set my EPA so at full throttle on the transmitter, I can still pull on my linkage a little bit so the servo is never pulling on a stuck linkage.

Check that the brake linkages are screwed in the complete distance into the little plastic bits you bolt your servo arm. Your silver metal retainers that physically operate the brakes could be set too far along the linkage. You may be using too much fuel tubing which could do this.

Do you have any pictures of it hitting the tank?

I am actually following the instruction manual which the fuel tubing is 10mm.

This is the picture on neutral position


This is the picture on full throttle which i have taken out the fuel tank slide


This is on full brake

See the silver retainers I have circled? Try moving these closer to the servo arm and see if the linkage still hits. I think this is your problem. It can also cause the brakes to drag when you goto full throttle.

i would agree with turbine my adjusters arent and dont ever get over the diff top plate only reason they are there is to let your fingers get a grip to do adjustments.

Whats up with the rumors?
I heard rumors that Mugen is going to release a new Buggy next year?
How could they possibly improve on the 5R? That car is SOLID!
We will have to wait and see I guess....

Hi, just my 2 cent idea. For me I set my throttle full throttle at 50% and set the EPA. so the brake linkage will no move to the back so much. Mean the servo just move/ turn little and the engine already full throttle.
