not true.. i run a even faster throttle offroad, so I can control the truck in the air better..you will not upset the mixture by running a faster throttle servo.. you will only have problems if the motor is not in tune

Someone mentioned a while ago, it may have been Rene C from Serpent, that having a fast throttle may not be so good. Aparently, if I recall correctly, having the throttle reacting too quickly can lead to an upset in the mixture. The idea being that the mixture in the carb takes longer to re-settle, i.e. can't respond quickly enough to the new position of the throttle.

Not sure if there was a concensus of agreement on this one or not. Anyone else know about this?

Cheers, Mark.
My problem with a fast throttle servo is, (and I suspect others may have the same problem), that my throttle control is not good enough to avoid breaking the rear end loose in turns. Thus I dial down the throttle speed to compensate for my spastic trigger finger.

I think the issue here is not getting the tensions out of the throttle linkage, so that the servo does not hum at neutral.
Whoa! Are you saying that there shouldn't be a hum noise when throttle is in neutral? Mine makes tons of noise!! How do I fix it? The spring??

Hum noise occured when there is load in tension .........aka from throttle return spring, I don't use digitial servo, still using old school analogy and there is small little hum noise occured when it is in neutal cause my throttle return spring is actually pulling against the servo........but almost 5 years now, the servo is still work like new.

Rookie is correct. I use an elastic hair band from the high end needle to the knob on the carb slide as a safety return. Thus the spring is redundant. The spring on the 710 is a bit long so you can't unload the compression on it completely, but you should be able to get it to a very slight hum. The distance from the servo arm to the carb slide is farther in the mtx3 and you can get all the hum out.

A little off topic now.........I've got the XRAY mail letter a while ago regarding their new NITRO car.......and from the website, it said it is nitro, but noted "HINT: it is not a touring car..."

What the heck will that be? Nitro TANK? I just hope it is not a TC, and I think it will be a 1/8th

you guys have it all wrong, it is a new lawn mower, with auto-run and even comes with the starter box. all new aluminum bulk heads and everything. adjustabe camber for making those turns on the tight lawns, threaded shocks for changing the ride height for different grass that hasnt been mowed in weeks. that damn Craftsman is kicking everyone's arse.

here is what I make it out to be like

I do not understand it... I set-up my servos really nice. No hum from my KO2344 & 2343. On the throttle/brake servo I placed the servo horn at a slight angle, with the throttle side of the link slightly forward... The throttle is perfect, but the brake is my problem. I CAN'T GET IT TO RETURN!!! When I apply the brake, the linkage stays in the forward position.

WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

Oh yeah, I also bent the brake linkage so it does not hit the attenna....

You didn't miss putting that "C" shaped plastic on the brake cam did you ?

Just make sure that the notch (on the car - near the brake shaft) slides into the groove of the "C" plastic and the actual brake lever fills in the rest of that groove. You will notice that when you push the lever on the direction of the braking action, the groove on "C" plastic will widen (being held by the notch at the bottom and the lever at the top), and when you release the lever, the tension on the "C" plastic will force it back to the original position (nuetral). Hope this makes sense.
