Hows the gear mesh. Will it need adjusting when the chassis is up to full temp?
Ok, for the carb, turn the ball that the throttle linkage is going to snap onto diagonally downwards. right now it's pointed diagonally upwards. If you have to force the throttle linkage to fit it, put it back to the upwards position.
Also make sure the carb is turned correctly after to ensure it does not hit the tank. This is how I do my engines on my 966 and have no problem, sometimes you just have to play with it on till its perfect.
( You may want to mount that savox servo underneath instead of on top, you should have enough clearance to mount beneath with a savox )
For the gear mesh, it looks fine from the picture. But who can really tell from the picture. Spin the gears and if it feels too course/rough , I would loosen/back it out a bit. It will not need to be adjusted when it gets up to temp ( not that i know of ).
I have never stripped a gear using that method. Just make sure you don't back it off too far, use your own judgement. Your car will also be more free.
I have never used the paper trick to mesh before.
