Default throt cut on 8uaf

Iv noticed that the throttle cut function on the 8uaf is only about 40 %. When I am at idel and engage the cut via one of my switches its not egnouf to stop the engine. Is this something I need my travel to be at 100%? and then just trim out my idle?

Default Throttle Cut

The way I adjust my 8UAF is as follows:

1. Set your throttle trim to full down position.
2. Adjust your throttle ATV for closed then high. (Make sure if you have an idle stop adjustment on your carburetor that it is adjusted to allow the servo to drive the throttle full closed)
3. Return your throttle trim to the center position.
4. Run the engine and adjust your idle with the sub-trim. Later you may tweak your idle with the regular trim.
5. Set your Throttle-Cut to whatever percentage is required to close the throttle.

Hope this helps!
