Ok im new to this forum but i need this question answered quick, i want a fail safe for my xxx-nt sport 2, but the reciever has a small spot that it plugs into, its hard to explain. and the side that plugs into the servo is big.

Fail safe units really aren't all that common.

Investing into a good FM radio system, such as the MX-3, is your best bet. The signal is much stronger and you'll have less interference. It's a radio you can grow with.

???!!!

Get a failsafe AND a throttle return spring for your truck. The Ofna micro is a good failsafe and Losi has a pack of two throttle return springs.

A throttle return spring is a great thing to have.

I have been racing gas cars for more than five years and have never used a fail safe. I can not, off the top of my head, name a racer who uses a fail safe. I have seen them cause more problems than they are worth.

I have an XXX-NT RTR 2 and are you talking about that little black spring on the throttle servo arm connecting to the box that hold the receiver crystal?
So if my car losses contact with my remote it shouldn't take off on me? The spring will bring the throttle back to idle?

A Throttle Return Spring stretches from the carby to the beginning of the Backplate - http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXUP98&P=7

if you louse contact with your car, the throttle spring will not do anything. it the batteries in ur car on in ur remote die, ir car will keep going the same speed until it runs out of gas or crashes.

if any one knows anything about the team losi xxx nt rtr 2 diff could they send a pm

The throttle return spring sends a negative wave of magnetic energy to the reciever, thus shutting down the system temporarily.
