    RE: "OFFICIAL" Himoto / Redcat Racing 1/10th BUGGY

    hello all. Just wanted to brag a little about my himoto cyclone. I am certainly biased seeing as how I am a newby and have only owned one nitro car and that only since x-mas. However it still bugs me to hear people flaming these buggies. The only problems I've had are ones that I created myself. The first time I really got running after break in My buggy broke after about 5 whole minutes. IT seems that they don't stand up well to high speed front in collisions with brick houses. My point is that I really think most breakages are due to driver error. Anyway after fixing a front lower arm and finally determining the true function of the idle adjustment screw I was up and running. Since then I haven't had a problem one. And I haven't been easy on this car. I even broke the fabled "don't let your friends drive your RC" rule. And in his yard instead of mine. It's a lot rougher and we bashed the car up pretty good. We noticed after refuelling that the body didn't want to line up with the fastener holes anymore. We soon figured out that we had bent the rear shockproof bar in, BUT IT WASN'T BROKE! I just bent it back out and put the body back on. That beats ordering new parts, because you snapped instead of bent, some high dollar super rigid material, six ways to sunday. All in all I,m really glad I went with the himoto. I was able to get into the hobby for a minimal amount of money and although getting started was a little frustrating I'm having almost to much fun with this buggy now. Oh and in case your wondering why I would let my best friend drive my car, (and believe me he was not easy on the thing) it's because I have to get him hooked on the hobby. He has a bigger yard than I do. Just about track size I'd say! Later folks! P.S. This is for all the newbys: Dont let it get you down! It took me more than a month to get the hang of this nitro stuff. Just keep reading posts and asking questions. Go ahead and shave your hair so you dont have to pull it out, but DONT GIVE UP!!!! You'll get it running!!! Good luck! J-boy P.P.S. Thanks everybody1 t
    Dude! I could beat you with a stomper!

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Himoto / Redcat Racing 1/10th BUGGY

    I too am new to the whole world of nitro RC, but for the money I spent on this buggy, $169 it cant be beat for a starter car. The buggy started up on the 4th pull and after a few min of tuning ran like a champ during its breakin period. I cannot complain about this buggy at all. People need to set their expectations low and realize that these vehicles are great starters into the hobby. There are 2 things wrong with the buggy, the front a-arm broke because I smacked into a concrete patio pad (anything plastic running into concrete will break and it is not redcats fault that I was a tard and smacked into it), and the throttle trim stopped working but a quick call to redcat racing resulted in them sending me a new controller asap for free. I have since ordered replacement parts for my buggy and have started looking into bigger and badder nitro rc vehicles. My friend has a Thunder Tiger SSK which he paid $300 for and every time we run it something breaks. If you are into doing huge jumps and running over boulders these vehicles are not right for you, if you would like to get into the hobby for minimal $ this is the way to go.

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Himoto / Redcat Racing 1/10th BUGGY

    Devin,
    Just an FYI, I broke the same part (tree attacked me) and was able to repair using 2 part epoxy and joining the pieces together, after set up I reinforced with 2 part putty epoxy and its working great. It's also alot easier than completely removing the a arm and installing a new one.

    If you hold the car in the air, the wheels will still spin with the car on the ground, it shouldn't move. It might try to jump or hop a little but other than that, you might have to lower the idle.

    If everything is tuned well, it will take off quick, not sputter at high speed, when the car is on the ground it should idle nice with out the car moving and the last thing the temp should be around 230-265.

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Himoto / Redcat Racing 1/10th BUGGY

    It really depends on the model. The redcat 1/8th buggy is most compatible with other brands. I am sure in time, there will be alot of upgrades and more compatibility with other brands.

    Hey, i was out driving my car today the tornado xl and i begin to hear a loud noise like a grinding noise. when i turned the car off i tried to push it and the wheels would stop moving and it would be hard to get past that part of the rotation. i was wondering what it could be and how to fix it.
