  Anyone out there could tell me how and with what losi part I could
modify my RC10GT to use the little spring return system that the GTX has?
I feel the need to do that mod because as the carb on my truck wears out,
slop devellops in it and the idle can't stay constant from neutral to
brake, because, when I brake, even though there is a spring between the
collar and the other... thing, too much pressure is applied and the
engines slows down and sometimes stalls.  With the GTX's setup, the servo
pulls the spring.  And wether the truck is at idle or braking, the
pressure applied to the carb via the extension spring is always the same.
 I need the part numbers!  It all consist of a simple spring and an
adapter to mount on one of the engine scews, from what I read in a mag.  
Am I right?  Thanks for helping.  Now, click send and post...

well i haven't gotten to installing the motor in my gtx yet, but from what
i can tell from reading the manual, you're right... the part number you're
looking for is A-9409... this includes both the throttle return spring,
and the eyelet... the manual shows the eyelet going on the rear motor
mounting screw, and the spring going from the eyelet to the inner hole on
the carb throttle arm...

hope this helps...
