well most people i have talked to say the band is for servos failing, i dont have run aways anymore but i spend my money wisely on servos, i stopped getting 60 dollar servos a while ago. I just spend 120 on my 9100t tonight, my hobbico finally went last weekend, that was the first hitec i liked and lasted. i thinking of trying those high voltage servos tho, i love jr but i wont spend 200 dollars on a servo even if they are the shi-

I had one runaway I had just broke in a new speed wc II engine and the throttle servo failed. The truck took off and luckily a corner marshel was able to get it shut down before it popped. I always run a throttle returnband they cost like 5 cents and somehow I forgot to put it back on after pulling the engine and inspecting the clutch bearings before my main. Big mistake. Iusethe return bands from gmk they comein a pack for a few bucks and have saved my engine. Few times like when the reciever battery top broke and I lost the reciever battery. The truck just rolled to a stop and nothing happened. I have raced some events that require the return band and tech the cars, if you don't have the band you are disqualifed. Bottom line is use the return band and prevent runaways.

Ohh yea BTW the 200 jr high volt servos are well worth the money.

you wrap it around the ball of the carb, then around the other side of the carb right below the fuel inlet

most guys do, just replace it often, make sure the band is straight to thats one mistake some guys do and it can put strain on the carb slide.
