    RE: OFFICIAL Redcat Racing TRUCK thread

    Hey Guys

    Happy New year and all the best for 2007

    I have a small issue and i'm racking my brain about it.
    I took my truck out the other day after a few weeks down time and the last time i took it, the truck was goig insane, it was so quick i was amazed, This time it seems to have taken a drug and slwoed right up but to the point where it doesn;t even sound like the engine reaches it;s normal rev's, I have check and the brakes are not too tight, the truck moves freely but the gears do seem to make alittle friction noise. i also noticed my tyres are pretty essed and they are very flat whouch can add to the slowness but not to the extent it is now...

    I wanted to know if it could be my motor? Do you think it needs a rebuild?

    I have replaced the glow plug, but it is the same one i was using when the truck was going well,
    I have cheded the fuel and the temperature seems to be good and the carb is opening to the fullest amount...

    The other question i have is, Does anyone know of a supplier that wiill ship me an entier Gearbox setup, I noticed that when my spur gear went the one i replaced it with was not quite made the same as the orginal was, and since then the gearbox has not been sooo happy, I need one shipped to South Africa as i have moved back home... Anyone know someone that will?

    thanks for all the help.
    Cheers

    im not too sure about a gearbox or a link, but i think your engine might just be dirty. did you use after run oil in the engine before you put the car away?

    clermontmotorsports.com might ship it there or allaboutfunhobbies.com if clermont wont you might have to email allaboutfunhobbies because he doesnt have all his parts on his website yet

    and for the motor thing you prob just need to retune it check the faq thread i posted 2 things about how to tune the engines

    RE: OFFICIAL Redcat Racing TRUCK thread

    Hi All

    Ok cool, i'll try those sites out,

    Yip i use after run oil 1 to 2 drops everytime, i'm pretty strict when it comes to being clean on my truck, now that i'm back in S.A i got all my tools, I clean it with a compressor and then check all the parts etc, I though about the retune which i tried while i was there but the truck is running at the right temperature 220 F to 230 F.
    The one problem i did have but i don;t think it is related is the battery holder that holds the batteries for the servo's melted on the negative links, i replaced that and since then no issue, but i can see that even coming into feature.

    I'm going to strip it this week and then i'll see if i can find anything weird.
    My girlfriends cousin bought one of these trucks from London, He managed to put the metal plate that holds the spur gear on through the spur gear, so in other words it cut the inside of the spur gear out, quite a interesting one, so once i have fixed his i'll move onto mine.

    Is it possible to be running the right temperature and the truck not to be tuned right? i always got taught that you try get it to run 220F to 230F and then you fine???

    Thanks

    RE: OFFICIAL Redcat Racing TRUCK thread

    everyone has thier own way of doing it, but i recommend the heat cycle method, thats what the guys on here told me. it worked well for me. i cant find the link on it, but maybe you can do a search on it.

    RE: OFFICIAL Redcat Racing TRUCK thread

    that is the correct rotostart backplate, you need the one for the .12/.15 engine.

    RE: OFFICIAL Redcat Racing TRUCK thread

    Zack221....thanks for the info. I'll order these parts and have them on hand to repair my truck when they fail. How will I know for sure when to replace them? I know it sounds a little silly asking these types of questions, but I figure I have to learn one way or the other. This thread is great..lots of good info...thanks again.

    RE: OFFICIAL Redcat Racing TRUCK thread

    retired ... you'll know when/if your clutch shoe spring goes if the any of the following conditions are met (I would know, went through two of them before getting the Traxxas one):

    [ul][*] Hard time starting your truck on the ground, starts fine while it is off of the ground and wheels spin fast, but stalls when you put it on the ground[*] You cannot push it freely forward or backward without hard resistance (other than the brake being on)[*] You hear a metal on metal grinding noise coming from the clutch bell area
    [/ul]

    Also, if you install the HPI 17 tooth racing clutch bell housing, you can actually peek in behind it to see the spring. That is how I know it broke the second time I could see it was loose.

    Hope you don't mind me replying to ya ... [8D]
