    Servos Sticking wide Open

    I have a Traxxas 4-Tech .15 that I got from a buddy.

    I have it all fixed up but I was wondering if anybody else is having issues with the servo getting stuck on full throttle randomly while driving it?

    Last time it did this I almost burned up the engine before I managed to get the car shut off.

    Is this a radio problem?

    try readjusting the carb/carb arm. loosen the carb/carb arm, and with the engine in place move the carb while moving the bellcrank with the servo. When the carb runs smoothly, tighten it down. Then move it some more to make sure its in th eright place, and then tighten down the carb arm. also make sure your bellcrank is smooth. if there is a groove on it, its time ot replace it. Hope i helped!

    Sounds more like a mechanical fault than a servo fault
    check all linkages are not binding
