Jus mount a smal hairband between the ballink on the carb and the main needle. If you need more tension then just wrap the band 1 or 2 times arround the main needle.

I second that...

You can get small hair bands from your local drug store/walmart/target in the hair accessories aisle.

Make sure you have a good strong throttle servo because trs or bands are know to wear cheap servos out.

I like to use a small inner tube. It is the same as using the hair bands but I found the inner tube when cut nice and thin last a bit longer and it is fuel resistant. You can even stretch it out if you feel it is too strong for your servo until it is good for you. One inner tube or one package of hair bands is a life time worth.

so go figure, i went to my local smooth lot and set up a track with my brother tonight to get my car set and ready for practice tommorow morning , and the first tank i ran we were going at full speed and my pack died on me sending the car in a full throttle high speed spins and the straightening out , it came toward me so it flipped over my foot and rolled 20 feet and landed upside down , the full RPM and no load on the rear end blew out the main clutch and blew out my side belt and pully(who knows what else haventtaken it apart yet) sending parts to god knows where, and go figure i had the hairties and i was gonna put them on after that tank, and the funny thing i only had about 1 min. left of fuel in the tank ... a $.10 hairtie and excitement cost me around $35 for parts for the rear of the car , hope the engine is okay .... Moral of story TRS are super impoirtant when racing full race cars ..lol
