Are you talking about the throttle return spring? If so, the one from a savage or about anything else should work just fine

How does your engine run? I haven't started my Tower Terror in over a year, but I always had a lot if trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

Really considering selling my Tower Terror...It does not have an engine this was ruined while trying to remove the flywheel for an engine swap. The truck was ran up and down the street a handful of times and never saw dirt. Every time I would go to run it the engine was a real pain to keep adjusted. How much would anyone be willing to pay.

3 glow plugs from Tower Hobbies in original unopened package.
EZ start system from Tower Hobbies never installed still in bubble rap.
heavy duty Futaba steering servo from Tower Hobbies never installed still in original package.

Thanks for the tip. How does your MadBeast run. I have an Exceed Forza and it runs really good for such an inexpensive Nitro buggy

I traded it off a long time ago, It ran real great, pulled wheelies. The only upgrade i did to it was put clutch shoes and springs from hpi savage on it. unlike what everyone else says lol There just haters lol I had one of there 1/10 scale buggies it ran great to.

Just out of curiousity....does anyone have a Tower Terror the may want to get rid off? i miss mine so much that i went and bought two more of these off of Ebay. One I put a Picco P3 on it and it is the fastest thing around! The other i am going to be converting it into Brushless. If anyone has one hit me up.....i may be interested in getting it. Cheap trucks....but SUPER durable and ungodly fast.....

They are a great size, and a very simple and durable design. It's really too bad they quit making them
