for the single speed one, this comes with the bearings, not the washers: http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/s...-vented/Detail if you mean the 2 speed then no, it doesnt.

I just took these off my stampede and they fit right onto the tornado with no problem. idk if they've been posted before, but if not than here they are

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXDUZ6&P=M (might have the wrong link, but the ones that fit a rustler/pede)

Ok…..
I managed to fit some T-Maxx Shocks on my Volcano SV. The only thing you have to modify is the Top shock mount. If you buy the T-Maxx Shocks from the LHS, the kit has all the spacers you need. You also need to buy 8 socket head cap screws 3mm X 18. Also from the LHS. The Pictures should be self explanatory. I posted pictures of the truck with stock shocks in back and T-Maxx shocks in front so you could see the difference in Bore and Spring size.
I went with these inexpensive T-Maxx shocks because I wanted this to be an Everyman sort of project. You can get these Shocks on E-Bay for less than $20 shipped if you find a Bargain. This Mod drastically improves the driveability, and thrashability of your truck.
I gotta give a shout out to nitro_racer_1 , who’s Buggy Pics inspired me. Also Nantucket, who’ s Volcano SV rocks!. He pm’d me some info as well.

To take full advantage of it you can change the exhause port duration to a lower number (compared to the transfer port for your state of tune and combination) than it would in comparison to a naturaly asperated 2 stroke. For eg alot of intake charge will blow out the exhauste port and not be forced back in by the pipe like it is suposed to with a supercharger with the exhauste duration of 190deg and transfer pot duration of 145 deg but If you run 145 transfer with a exhause duration of 175 deg it will stop some of the fresh air fuel charge from blowing out the exhauste out. This is one major concideration you need to look at if you are trying to use a supercharger thew whole engine needs reworking to make it work in most cases. Not saying how well or if it is worth it. As well the exhauste presure pushes the fuel into the carb and if you try to up the presure in the carb with a supercharger it will not get enough gas to run properly. I personaly would just run a higher percentage of nitro which is alot like using nitrous and I would jet it right if that didnt satify me I would port or replace the engine with a better one. These engines dont rev to there potential to begin with so I would look into that first. just my 2 cents. I have a RC Car chassis dynamometer if anyone has a project to be proved if it works or not I would be more then willing to help them out!

Quck question fella's, does anyone know if there are any other brands that the 47T throttle gear can be compatibel with the Tornado BB? I had the same problem as above that the gear was chewed up and rounded out. Looks exactly like the picture above. Any suggestions. Trying to buy from local hobby store then paying outrageous shipping costs and days waiting.

I found some Tamiya tires that fit. SP-1240 (51240) for the front and SP-1241 (51241) for the rear. The description is "High Density Spike Tires K (4WD/Rear, 62/35)"
They come with foam inserts.
I'll let you know how they go after a few runs.

Hey Pede....
I used the SPACERS that come with the Shock kit. And I just threaded the 3mm X 18mm Cap head screw into the top shock mount.
I will try to take a Better Picture when Its Daylight and post it for you.

I have yet to see any metal spur gears for these Rc's. I've heard that the two speed trannies are a pain and eat gears often. I have the single speed HyperSpeed by Exceed. Went through two main gears but they were my fault. As long as you have the right gear mesh you wont have any problems. The spur gear I have in there now has been in there for over a month and shows no sign of wearing.

If its your first i would learn to drive good first (not saying you cant drive but they take some getting used to if your new). With mods anything will fit. But you can drop in a sh 18 from redcat, and get the engine replacement program and get it for 45 bucks. Great improvement, great engine. And there is a os engine, i think the cr-vs or something like that which is even better, but a lot more expensive, and also the os tz, which ive heard is nuts. But you'll probably be blowin out your drivetrain by then.
