    Darin , I want my radio to work !!

    I contacted Redcat sales with a question , I'll just post the email for you and the response.

    Q: I was driving my Tornado XP today and the Radio went crazy. For no reason the brakes locked on the car and the only way to onlocked them was to turn off the transmitter. The car was on a straight away and just stopped. Then while I was trying to figure it out the throttle servo just started going crazy on its own. I shut the radio off for three or four minutes and it seems to be working. Is this a common issue ??

    A: It is. All you have to do is let it sit for a while and let the Glow plug cool down.

    Thanks,
    Violette

    Um, I really don't want to stop playing everytime the engine gets up to operating temp!!

    LOL, They need someone at redcat that knows about their products. Seems as though they just started to sell a product without knowledge or research. Glow plug cooling so radio works. hmmmmmmmm

    Yah know, I'm going to say something and this is really really stretching .... If I was driving my car with the battery hanging off the head < are you getting a good visual yet? > maybe , just maybe there would be the slightest chance of some tiny bit of radio static. Hey ... maybe this has a new thermal radio ... heh heh ... no batteries in the desert heat ??

    maybe richen your high end needle valve, would make the plug run cooler thus making your radio system work better[:-]

    Hey try switching your glow plug with the crystal from your radio.
    That way if your radio runs hot you can cool down your crystal....lmao

    That made no sense but was funny at the idea of it....

    I hope you do get everything straight though....

    RE: Darin , I want my radio to work !!

    Thanks Chopper ,

    Well , at least if I'm not having a total blast driving the car , I'm having fun with it some way or another !! LOL The bad part is I thought I broke a steering arm because of Radio interferance . Did I? Or am I buying parts for a car that is self destructing ? Last time it went crazy it went full throttle and smashed into something. Tweaked the chassis and broke a steering arm. So that cost me 10.00 bucks to repair the steering , and seeing that its not bent really bad I'm not going to worry about the chassis. It loohs to be tweaked just a little near the front bumper. Ok , thats a new issue, I accidenally ordered a wrong part. They cancelled that part of the order but are giving me a store credit ?? I charged the $%^&%^&&*(&*^&*%^(* Thing !! Credit my #$%^#$%^#$%^#$% ing credit card !! I do know I will NOT deal with Redcat direct for parts anymore. I should not have to ask for my money back , should just happen when the order was cancelled.

    Ok , thats my next post If I cannot get that fixed !![:@]
