you are absolutely correct on throttle control. and I think the reason is the springs that are in the throttle linkages. Off throttle is always laggy. The gas cars are a constantly changing environment unlike the electric cars (well mostly) you have the parts wearing (clutch, tires) then you area ffected by temperature humidty etc. SO it is easier (not easy by it self just easier than gas cars) to be smooth with electric cars.
What I did is I use the metal collar directly for on throttle and I use short fuel tubing for off throttle. I will eventually go for a no fule hose or spring setup on the throttle as well or I may try and adapt a servo saver for throttle.
By the way, by no means I mean the nova engines are bad because of the 359's conrod problem. thanks for stating that the problem is concerns only the 359
I think Nova's are great engines but I think for my experience level they are out of reach for me. So it is not the engine, it is me where the problem lies
I am happy that I am running gas cars as well now as I learned new things and its teaching me to constantly adapt to change.
