    Redcat Tornado S30 Help

    So today my dad and i took our two tornadoes out for a run. We both got them started around the same time and started driving them. After about 1 min of running mine stalled out and quit running.Shortly after his did too. This has never happened before. We have tried troubleshooting the problem multiple times. First, we check the glow plugs and igniters and they were all red hot. They are also flooding very easily. And once they start up for that first time and then stall, they will not start up for nothing. We then came back later that afternoon to try and see if they would start. They started but then they stalled really quickly.(and then would not start again) All of the parts are stock except for new spur gears and a new exhaust gasket.Anyways, any help would be awesome! Just tell me if you need any more info.

    It's hot out, they'll take some tuning. I'd start by checking the idle set screw. Hot air is less dense and you probably aren't getting enough oxygen.

    Probably so, we figured that it was flooding itself because when I pulled the glow plug out fuel it was just spilling out.

    Yeah, sounds like that's your problem then. Did you make any adjustments before? What time of year was it?

    Well it's very aggrevating because it will start up just fine then it will die very soon after running it. But then if I come back later (after it dieing) it will start fine again. After dieing it will not start for nothing unless u wait a few hours.( not even the slightest hint) I'm guessing its because the fuel has Afevaporated out or something.

    RE: Redcat Tornado S30 Help

    It's look like too rich or fatten. Come back with HSN 2 1/2 from bottom and LSN flush. Don't prime, Tornado don't need anymore, just when you drain all fuel.

    Check around if you rotary carb don't jam sometime or block with pullstart, check allways before run. Maybe it's time to clean your carburator in this case.

    Good luck!
