Default Servo Help!!

I'm having problems with my throttle and brake servo. The servo has no problems until i start the motor then the servo starts reving the motor up and down. Any suggestions???

Thanks,
David

We just helped a gal in Oz. Same type of deal. It was mostly Diagnosed by Dogman. It was the clutch being out of wack and creating a frequency that made things go banannas when the motor was started. Mostly that along with some radio issues.

No .. pull the clutch and take a good look .. broken spring or spring rubbing the bell, hot or warped bell, etc. You will prob find something wrong. It is prob creating a harmonic situation that is driving your radio crazy when you start it up.

It was the clutch... The clutch shoes had flat spots and the springs looked stretched... What is this caused from? should i also replace the bell?

If the bell looks really discolored , as in black, I would say yes. Chk for being round. If all is good, sand the inside of the bell lightly and put in new shoes and springs . Glad ya found the prob.

Switched the throttle servo with the steering servo... with the steering servo as the throttle i had no problem with the throttle and when i put it as the steering it quit working all together... So i think its just a faulty servo... sending the servo back to cen

Kinda the same deal as the gal in Oz. I tend to think the clutch started it all and prob all the interference took out the servo.
