Default my carb?

Hey guys i got a go tech 7 port in my buggy. When i hold the engine still and apply pressure to the carb like pushing it from side to side there is a very small amount of play is that nomral. Like there is less than 1mm to each side. Is this just the plastic flexing or is am i not putting it on right? Thanks for the help!

No, that's definitely not how it should be and could possibly lead to erratic handling of the engine. You should remove the carb, check for dirt, check the seals, maybe replace them and reinstall the carb. When doing so, you need to apply a slight amount of force from the top of the carb when tightening the clamp mechanism. Be sure not to overtigten it, otherwise the carb's neck might bend, becoming oval.
There's an official Go-Tech Engine Thread here in R/C Tech as well, where you can find all the cracks, like Mark from MassiveMods and many others who won't hesitate a second to help you!
