yup, only one setting, easy to do, just not great for fine tuning.

I was looking at my manual and I have the same pic on page 10. If anything I think page 6 is the most helpful at pointing out where everything was. It's still a little misleading because the idle mixture screw and the idle adjustment screw are on the otherside on my carb. They're where the throttle lever is pointing to.

Haha, If you're feeling adventurous trying turning all the screws you see and try to take notice of how easily they unscrew or if they end up taking somthing off. I know it may not be the best way to go about it but atleast you'll figure things out eventually. I mean hey, you're a mechanic you're supposed to be good at this stuff [8D]

to bad we all didnt live closer so we could actually drive em together, i dont know anyone that is into the rc hobby, so i drive alone then come back to my comp. to talk about it, would be funner to be sitting around with abunch of you guys instead of typing on my comp. but this is the best i got, i spend more time on here than flying or driving i think.

Lol, i'm right there with ya. Fortunately i have a nice little dirt track about 20 mins away where you can always find a few people messing around with their rcs. I'm always a little intimidated talking to them since they all actually know what they're doing. But hey eventually I'll figure things out.

Hey guys I'm planning a trip to the beach tomorrow and was wondering if I should take my buggy along for the ride. I'm not sure how badly the sand and salt will wreak havoc on my parts. Since pretty much everything but the screws on the car are made of aluminum I don't think I have much to worry about. Of course I'll clean it off real well after I'm done. Any thoughts?

clean it well before you even go there, so it will make your job easier after the beach
i guess you could also cover the shocks with those special covers too, but maybe that is a little far fetched..
have fun!
it sounds like there is going to be alot of it!!!
tell us how it was when you come back some picks or vids [sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

Haha, thanks for the advice. All i know is that there are going to be donuts galore. There should be some nice dunes that I could have some fun with too. I'll try to get some pics or a video, should be interesting. Hopefully I won't run it into the water. [sm=drowning.gif]

With the engine off play around with your throttle control on your remote and try to get the setting to be the most neutral as possible. So when you let go of the throttle the brake doesn't engage but the throttle is also in idle. If the car still wants to take off on you then you may have a broken clutch spring or it could be as simple as your idle screw is just open too much. Hope that helps. Let us know.

Hey guys, I need help with some new tires for my buggy. I'm not sure exactly what will and won't work. I measured the tires that came with it and they measure about 15mm wide for the front and 20mm for the back. I also know that the hex nut the rims attach to are 6mm. I don't want to pay more than 15 bucks for a whole set, I was looking at e-bay and that doesn't sound too far fetched. If any of you all know where I might be able to find somthing to fit my tornado that'd be great.

I worked on tuning my syclone today, I found out that my needle valve is supose to be set about 1 to 1 1/2 turns unscrewed from closed position, i found that in the manual on top of page ten, that is alot different then what you guys are running, i wish i had the high and low speed adjustments instead of just one needle valve, it is so hard to tune, i still dont have it but it runs good enough to flip and cartwheel and bend the shock[>:] but hey it was fun, if anyone has this engine also is there any advise you could give me, mine runs good as long as you dont go full throttle right away just slowly bring it up then it starts cutting out once in awhile, it has a no gas coming out of exhaust like before and a tank of fuel last longer than 3 min. i just cant get it dialed in. i made little adjustments and drove for a minute then made more adjustments, i ran 3 tanks in it then it got dark and is still not tuned. i might have to find someone to help me and teach me how to set this bad boy.

maybe change the carb, those single needle carbs are impossible to fine tune. They are easy to get going but not to get exact. i had a car a couple of years ago with the single needle carb and never got it, even the guy at the lhs said the same, new os motor. So i sold the car for like $75 and bought an hpi.
