Default Nitro cutoff thingy???

Hey guys, new to nitro world. My car wants to run away on its own. I know there is like a cutoff for that so if you lose a signal, that it will idle down. I cant seem to find it anywhere though. I like to deal through amain hobbies. If someone can help me, I would appreciate it alot. Thanks

I think you are talking about a FAILSAFE.
Like this:
OFNA Micro FailSafe

Yep, you are looking for a FailSafe. They are worth every penny. Also I'd recommend some sort of throttle return set-up as well. Either a spring, or hair bands depending on your preference. A FailSafe will only work when it is getting power. I always plan for worst case scenario (rx pack flying out of car, or its wires getting sliced) Throttle return spring or bands will stop it from taking off full throttle if that happens.

IF you have/are using spektrum.... the RX"s have it built in. When you bind the reciever to your radio...just have your inputs where you want the failsafe mode to be.

Yeah, I have a spektrum reciever but It must not have worked, just cost me a brand new engine. Ill try re binding the reciever and go from there with my back up engine. What do you mean by throttle return spring, LIke I said, Im new to nitro engine stuff.

What they're talking about is something wrapped around your throttle server to your carb like a hair band or some kind of small rubber band.

Most people used the small goodies ones from walmart. You just have to test how many you need to pull the throttle back depending on how stiff your servo is. I think most use 2 or 3 from what I've read.

I'm gonna get some on mine soon I just haven't raced since I read about it. Sounds cheaper and more effective than a Failsafe IMO.
They talk about it in another thread on here somewhere.... cant member which one.... Hope that helps!
