does that work?? sounds intresting. I wouldn't think ruber bands have enough power to counter act the tourqe or a servo. Sounds like a cheeper way for sure if it works!

GET ONE.
Better spend the money now than $300 for a replacement engine (or more) down the line.

was on another board. And they were talking about failsafe. I always knew there had to be a way to prevent runaways. I am glad i found out now. With the way things have been going (which will be straightened out by tomorrow) i could imagine my buggy going WOT into the creek by my house to finish off my radio gear after i fry my engine for good.

Check your radio, if its 2.4 GHZ it might have a built in failsafe..If your running standard FM..you should get a failsafe and some kind of closing device on your carb

You set the fail safe when you bind. Read the manual.

Definately use throttle return too. I use the GMK bands.
