that's why throttle return springs or elastics are usefull you don't have to keep pressure with the servo!
i leave a little bit of play so the servo DOESN'T hum.

Now you're stressing the servo more while driving because it's has to pull the rubberband.

Anyway, the buzz that you while the servo is at the idle position is normal. You can hear the difference between a stressed servo and a servo that's slightly pushing on the spring. Servo's in a plane get a lot more stress than they do in our cars and they also survive.

Just make sure that your servo is in neutral position when the failsafe kicks in if you don't want a dead servo by accident.

The whole idea of the rubber band is to have a fail save even if the rx battery disconects the fact that it closes my carb shut is just a positive bi product.
I seriously doubt two thin elastics will stress a servo anymore than having pressure applied all the time keeping the carb shut...

Bacically adjust your end points so there not binding, adjust throttle so there's about 1mm gap (called dead band) before it starts to pull on your carby from idle and set open to just past you restrictor, same with steering, work out where maximum travel from left to right then set your end points to stop the servo just before max travel so your not loading up the servo.

That's my point.

Thanks for all the throttle stuff fellas I can see how I did it is right - just thru logic and what the manual says.
Now what about steering somebody was talking about? I just adjust it so I get max turning
