    I didn't watch your video too closely, but you are definitely missing your throttle return spring.

    It attaches like this on the carb:

    Comes in this set of parts:

    One end goes around the hsn and the other goes below where the throttle linkage connects.

    HSN = high speed needle housing, the other end goes around the throttle arm just as the diagram illustrates

    Wow, I watched the video! Your servo saver is fragged. You could put ten springs on there and still have problems! That goldish steel ring between the throttle & brake is a spring steel split ring sort of thing. Take the saver apart and reassemble per the manual. I have had my screw come loose before(no pun intended) & that spring gets dislodged from the groove in the saver. Good vid by the way!

    Most guys switch to a slider/spring throttle setup. Less slop than the stock saver thing.

    This is how I have my current X setup, the horn on the servo is solid:

    The "sliders" and collars are just traxxas parts.

    These were linkage setups on previous savage's I had:

    well it only took one run with the savage to lose the carb return spring, not going to get another one. i will look into what olds97 recommended and i have a few ideas of my own.

    you must of not clipped it right, because installed correctly those thing are hell of a hard to remove!!! check the teeth on the servo saver all so. they could be stripped...

    You may be right i may have put it on wrong. i think i found a better setup to replace the whole mess. that is if Irma don't blow us away.
