This has worked for me.

Or on Truggy's since they tend to be a little more open sometimes you can grab the air filter and rip it off and jam a finger in the carb restrictor and choke it.
then you would be taking the chance of damaging someones motor wouldnt the sudden stop break the rod or crank pin.

...i had a runaway WOT on my ASsociated RC10GT and it was flipped over so i was able to grab it..i put my shoe on the flywheel and the motor stopped allright......because the rod EXPLODED........

i would've been better to burn the clutch...........

If the car has landed upside down, I stab the fly with the toe of my shoe as I come up on it. If the car is stuck or in motion and I can wrangle it, I push it down on the ground and wrap my shirt around my finger a few times and plug the stinger. If I have gloves on, it's even easier. Clutch shoes or bell is cheaper than motor.

What do you think using your shoe on the flywheel does. It's not like it slows it down then stops it.

And as far as I catching a run away......... I just use my foot on the fly wheel....... dont, nothings broke......
It all depends on which high torque servo you are using, and how you arrange the bands.

Eg. a 12 kg Sav÷x servo is VERY easy to turn by hand - or rubber band

Digitals are way easier to turn by hand on loss of power unlike analog. I can flick my throttle horn on my JR 9100HVS and move it back and forth like no other. I bet I could blow on it to move it as well.

I know you didn't mean anything by it DPowers. Just pointing out its the same as the flywheel/shoe technique.

I know I wouldn't care how anyone stopped my $300 dollar mill. At $50 con-rod that gets pulled from the sudden stop is better then it going "ping" and causing me to buy a new P/S/R and possibly more.
