    RE: air leak in my redcat sh 18

    Are you reffering to the nut/bolt that holds the carb down? It should have a little rubber O-ring sandwiched between,you can try loosening it,push down on the carb and tighen back up. I had to do this plus some rtv on my sh .18 (for some reason I wound up with a Caldera with the sh .18 that was riddled with leaks). Hope this helps...

    Throw some gasket maker on it before getting a new engine.
