Go to the hardware store and get yourself a small spring. Connect one end somewhere on the car, connect the other end to the throttle arm. Instant throttle return spring. Check your connections on your reciever, servos, and switch. Sounds like you have a loose connection somewhere.

However, the return spring will ONLY work if your servo loses power.

Ideally, what you need is a Return Spring AND a failsafe.

If you're using a slide carb, then you can use one of those pony-tail thingys around the carb and the slide piece. Sure you'll have to replace it now and then as it wears out, but either steal them from your sis/GF/Wife. . .
