Default Throttle return spring???

can someone tell me what i am looking at? I have a Losi 8 2.0 rtr buggy with the 350 engine. there is a spring that hooks on the HSN and wraps around the back of the carb and hooks the LSN.. I think this is a throttle return spring.. I would like to order a couple extra ones but can find them on amain.. i am going to try to include a pic of it.. lets see if it works

you are correct, it is a throttle return spring. Don't know how you didn't find them on amain- just search for "throttle return spring"

a lot of guys use girl's hair bands as an alternative. Look for scunci brand as the local pharmacy. You get like a million of them for $5

I use the nipple hair off of a Hungarian Gypsy. Has to be female and it has to be plucked at midnight while she is sleeping. It's what the pros use I swear.

Sorry, feeling a bit bored tonight. Rubber bands work great...
