Default NTC3 nitro throttle return spring ideas for slide carb motors?

Can anyone help me with any ideas on setups for a throttle return spring? I have a couple ideas but want to see what you folks out there have it set up. Thanks.

When I was running a NTC3, I used a rubber band from the needle valve assy. around the pivot ball on the other side.

I did what Red said except instead of a rubber band, I just cut the top off a small balloon and stretched it to fit. Works great on all the Itilian and Japanese engines.
