I have the same problem with idle screw position on my nova engine. I had to rotate the carb a little and when I adjust the screw I use a large flathead to keep from stripping it out. Its still at an angled position but easier to get to.

I received the starter box wheel today but it's the wrong one.

DiaRh34,

Did they send you the right one afterward or did you have to call back?

I ordered the aluminum servo horn.

I called support back to order the correct starter wheel. The service rep said they realized they sent me the wrong one and shipped out the correct one the next day.

So far the service with Horizon is great but the queue wait times are horrible.

The wait to speak to someone for the call back option is long as well.

I got an answer clutch shoe set.You're gonna want to put 4 shoes in the clutch since it only comes with 2.I also upgraded the steering servo to an ace 1313 w/ losi alum arm (ace takes a FUT arm btw) and moved the stock steering servo to throttle cause the stock one is garbo.The throttle could stand an upgrade as well I'm just a cheapo.

I've ran mine about a month now and not broken anything.I got an extra set of arms/front spindles/front carriers.

Then theres the normal stuff like stick packs for the box and I picked up another set of tires/wheels (cityblocks work best for me but thats just the track here)

anyone have problems with the carb throttle shaft sticking? I ordered one of these for a buddy of mine here, and yesterday at the track, once the engine warmed up the throttle shaft on the carb would stick, it isnt the servo, unhooked the servo arm, and took spring off, and it is still sticking bad, when it cools down it works great
