Default ZDZ 40RV setup

I have a ZDZ 40 RV and plan to put it in my H9 260. This is my first gasser so I have a question about throttle setup. The throttle has a spring return, do I disable the spring? It seems to me the spring would cause undo load on the servo and increase power consumption. Any suggestions on the method to disable the spring if this is the proper course of action?

Dear Sir, You may simply "unsnap" the spring to release the return tension but do not remove it as it will keep the throttle butterfly biased against one side of the throttle body to prevent wear from vibration.
Thanks,

Thank you Mr. Dooley. I see now how that would be the best course of action.
