    sounds like your low needle is too rich, try to lean it a little, here's a video for you to watch about tuning, this may be the problem. if you clutch spring is bad it wont be able to idle and not move, it will stall when you hit the brake.

    With the os cvrx 18 in a tsunami with a 14 tooth bell smaller than normal clutch shoes and single speed direct drive should it be able to do wheelies?

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Wow its been over a year since i last posted I guess that can be a good thing.. well anyways i was driving my volcano sv today and driving wise it runs great but i can not get my idle very low. I tried the screw under the air filter and that really didn't do anything. I checked to make sure my clutch and spring were ok... which they are. So what am i missing to get my idle lower... If i unscrew the idle screw to much then when i hit the brakes my car wil die.

    Thanks Jared

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Im a new Nitro owner. I have a bone stock Volcano SV. Thanks to this forum and all you guys, I was able to Safely break in and tune my engine. Man I had the thing Screamin on a nice flat parking lot. I swear it looked like it was trying to lift the front wheels as i launched from a dead stop. And as I hit top speed, I could see the tires balooning! Musta been close to or over 30 mph. I DID have to tune it back down a bit as I hit 300 Degrees head temp, ( which scared me, lol.) Richened the HSN and am running in 220 230 range, which feels right. Still Fast too!
    Man, I love this thing! Gonna work on some up grades now......
    P.S. I have had NO problems with my clutch or clutch bell, except at break in, when I almost SMOKED them. But that is a story I'll save for my next post.
    Happy Holidays to all...........

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I don't think there is too many problems with the transmissions anymore, so you should not have to be too worried but it is a good idea to keep a spare around.

    As far as upgrades and parts you can checkout www.tricountyracing.com
    We have bought many things through them without a problem and they are cheap, just send them a message! Otherwise there is a couple other dealers on here that can help as well.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Im trying to Install after market shocks on my Volcano SV Truck. I read in this thread that Traxxas T-Maxx and E-Max Shocks will fit. So I bought a Pair of T-maxx shocks to experiment with. The Problem is that the upper shock mount is different from the Volcano upper shock Mount. Has any one else Actually accomplished this mod? How did YOU do it? Can you explain and/or post a picture?

    Which part keeps moving around and coming out? The dogbone or the knuckle (drive shaft that comes out of the rear diff case)? If the drive shaft is coming out you have a problem inside the the rear differential. It is likely that you are missing an E clip on the drive shaft which drives the main drive gear inside the diff case. If you have a manual there is an exploded view of the diff case. If you do not have one you can download one here Redcat manuals

    Even with limited or no experience you can take this thing apart. They are not too difficult especially if you have the pictures to go with it [&:]

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Can you take a picture of the part and post it here? It should not be too bad to fix. Just remember where the stuff was when you take it apart. It helps to lay the parts out in the order you remove them for reassembly.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    hi guys i'm new to nitro rc's and im just waiting for my truck to arrive. i'm just wondering if anyone has any special tips to set it up to run good in cold temp? i'm in northern minnesota and i dont want to blow up the engine because i had it set wrong. also where is a good place to get upgrades for the volcano? i got a feeling the a-arm on it will be plastic and will have a better chance of breaking in the cold. also what parts would be good to keep on hand? i mean which is the most common part to break?

    thanks any help i might get it is appreciated

    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.

    Hi Jay,

    wrap the cooling head in tin foil to keep the temps up, you want the engine as close to 200 degrees without making it too lean for break in. you dont want it too hot either, a temp gun would be good to have in real cold temps outside. leave it plastic, its cheaper to replace a plastic a arms then replacing bent aluminum ones and what they are attached to . get a couple of front a arms and steering knuckles, maybe a few spur gears too. i get all my redcat and other rc stuff from http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/servlet/StoreFront
