    Exclamation Throttle linkage problem/carb binding

    Hey guys, I have owned a tmaxx for years now and decided to bust her out of storage and get back into the hobby. My original 2.5 had many gallons of use so I decided to start fresh with a new 2.5r. I'm having a problem with my throttle linkage to the carb. When I go from WOT to closed the carb is not closing all the way. Everything is moving freely up untill I connect the last piece to the carb. The engine is factory new and yet the carb feels slightly sticky when moving in and out while connected to the low speed needle due to friction from the small amount of play. I'm not too sure I have the entire linkage set correctly. I will include a video demonstrating my problem. Thanks for the help I'm advance.

    That's easy, mover the stop collar closer to the slider so it puts more pressure on the spring which will push the carb closed when not on the throttle.

    Loosen the circled collar & move it closer to the slider.
    Look out for the tree/crunch!

    LiPo? Naw NITRO!!

    That worked for me. I've also seen people add stiffer springs but not sure where they got em.
