Default Losi 2.0 throttle??

I need some help! My throttle linkage keeps hitting on my servo. I have a Hitec 985 and the slide linkage keeps catching on the top of the servo. Anybody have a fix for this? Different servo horn or maybe some washers under the horn??

Use clutch shims on top of the servo spindle then put horn on.

any possibility of using spacers under the case mount holes? i seemed to recall having to take my jr 8800 and very slighty massage the case w/a fresh #11 blade making a small scallop in the case so the rods moved freely.

Just really didnt want to have to cut into the case. I think I am going to try the shim first and see what that does and then look for a servo horn that I can maybe more the linkage to the top.

Adjust the part on the carb rotate it so the arm is higher that should fix it.

Yeah that will fix it, just eye it where the spring doesn't touch the case.
