this is what happens if you don't have a Throttle return spring!!
Fail safe or NOT, a throttle return spring is your BEST bet.
Hook it to the Throttle arm and the Backplate on a Rotary Carb Engine.
Hook it to the Throttle Servo arm on a Slide Carb engine and a screw somewhere inline. On Slide Carb, it's a good idea to use a small hair styling rubber band in addition to the spring, to pull the barrel back if the linkage pops off.
Team Losi has a Throttle return spring kit for a few dollars. Has always worked good for me.
