Default Return spring

I have an impulse pro that I need to put a return spring on.I'm not allowed to use a rubber band it must be a spring.I have a airtronics 94358 servo that seems a little stiff but works great.Any ideas or pictures that you guys have would be great ..

Return spring on a 94358 isnt that kind of pointless...

MOST hobby shops carry throttle return springs. Team Losi makes a good one and its about 3 bucks. You could use a spring ment for a exhaust manifold too, you just hook one side to the chassis and the other to either the horn or the carb. Depending on the rules, you will have to mount it to the carb if it is a ROAR rule or the opposite side of the horn (if its on the horn it could be bad if the carb linkage pops off). Exhaust springs might be too much tension, so I just get the Losi one.

Good thing they make you use throttle return, I've seen too many runaways and its usually because they don't require it.

Look like we can't pun the TRS on digital servo........it will stay there if Rx battery in low.

For me I put digital servo on the steering and analog servo on throttle.
