    I learned the hard way some time ago. I was running my TMaxx at the park one day having a good ol time when all of a sudden it just took off across the park and into the street made it past one lane but wasnt so lucky when it went into the second lane, cost me about 150. for parts . So now I have a Failsafe on all 3 of my Nitros. cost is about 30, but well worth it.

    Keep an eye out for used failsafes. I got my Ofna mini fail-safe for $15. Also, get a throttle return spring or any spring that returns your carb to idle, about $1 at a hardware store.

    You want a hot plug for small block motors. Cooler for big block.
