Default throttle carb linkage ?

I am wondering if it is a good idea to change the plastic carb linkage on an OS 12cvr to the metal upgrade? The plastic one seems to bend quite easy when I apply full brake. So what is the vote "YA or NA"?

i had the plastic arm with the CV before and it was only a problem once you put on a throttle return spring.

I would HIGHLY recoment a throttle return spring cause i just had a runaway with my brand new FR12 engine.

so i would say yes get the metal arm, however, you might have problems getting the carb to open all the way, which i did, in this case just get a longer servo arm

Default possible brain storm

So if my brain is working rght, all I hav to do is shorten my brake throw, from the radio trim to stop too much push on the arm and put a retrn sprng on the throtle end to eliminate any possible RUN AWAY!!

It's always easier than you'd think... I never had a problem with the plastic carb linkage with a return spring.
