These work, but I use the black ones. I have yet to break one, but I replace them usually once per series (5 races) because they do loose their stretchyness.

It should be strong enough to pull the barrel to idle. Turn on the radio and receiver, now hold full throttle and shut of the rx. If it can pull the throttle closed, it's strong enough.

Yeah what neobart said. They shouldn't make your throttle servo really work any harder, unless you have a weak servo.

I would check them often as nitro fuel is REAL hard on rubber bands. Found this out the hard way back when I flew RC air planes.
