but the carb ball looks, like its good and pulling the linkage straight.
actually the angle on the throttle rod is not level...it is down just a tad!...that will also eatup servos!..trust me i know...but you also need a better servo for the losi eater i mean 8ight!lol

yea i see what you mean but, i know for some reason with diffrent throttle servos you have to position the carb ball at a diffrent angle .

lucky me i do use a radio tray stiffer.
i usually follow the losi manuel to see where the carb ball is set at.

nevermind my carb ball, is almost level with it pointing foward to the center diff mount.

yea i do see in the pic its not pulling straight its at a angle.

thats a rtr chassie right ? i have had a few servos going out due to the chassie flexing and breaking the servo bought a new tft chassie and helped but still need to get it set correct and loosen the rear screw to allow the rear of the radio box to float , looks like u have a heavy spring on there also, try a rubber band to help shut the carb

One big issue I see with the SH based losi engines is their throttle linkage ball. For some reason they use a really long linkage ball, which makes setting the linkage up in a losi very difficult. Something to think about. I would imagine one from another engine would fit. Not certain though.

But you're definitely gonna need a real servo. I'm surprised the traxxass servo lasted 1/2 of a tank.
