    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I got a tsunami ultrawide for Christmas and during break-in the brake was set way to high and we burned up the clutch bell, what do we have to replace. The car won't go very fast and the acceleration is decreased. The clutch bell is a blue color.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I had an os .18 cv-rx in my volcano sv pro but neither I or the LHS could get it to run so Ill have to send it back for warranty repair. I installed the team infinty .18 after a good cleaning with some carb and choke cleaner and it fired right up and runs awesome. How can I adjust the throttle arm to not totally kill the engine when I put it in reverse/brakes? Also sometimes after running for a few minutes the throttle dies to to about 15% and after I pick it up and juice the throttle a couple of times it picks back up like normal until I run it out of fuel. This seems to happen whenever I am down to about an 1/8 of a tank. I have venom temp gauge/fail safe and the temp reads about 250 to 280 but after I stop the engine the temp drops 20 - 30 degrees in about 20 seconds. What is an acceptable temp range to run it in. It still has a fair amount of smoke when running it hard so I think I can still lean it up a smidgen more. Thanks for any helpful tips.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I just answered my own question about the throttle cut back because of the failsafe, duh...should have looked it up before I asked. But what about the reverse/brake thing?

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    you need to turn the idle screw clockwise to keep the carb open when you hit the brake, 250 is a good running temp when you running it pretty hard, no more than 280.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I replaced my front left dogbone because it disapearred and since that happend it seems that when I juice it sometimes the front wheels take off like a bat out of hell but the rears don't have near as much power. Is there anything I can do to limit the temp to 270, maybe make it more rich at the sacrifice of power. It gets frustrating having the fail safe cut it back all the time.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    ok so hopefully im going to pick my spur gears up from redcat tomorrow and i need help on meshing them. i know how to do it any everything, i did that last time and i still stripped it. i put notebook paper in and pushed it up against it, when i ran it it kinda almost binded, so is that too tight. Should i be pushing it together or just letting it be snug or what? how hard should i push it together? any other advice on meshing would be greatly appreciated.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    there should be a little play between the clutch bell and the spur gears, just a bit of play. you sould be able to roll the car without any binding.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    ok so i got the gears in my volcano, put the header and rpm pipe on, with a high flow air filter from all about fun. its way fast im so happy with everything and the direct drive, hopefully i dont strip anymore gears. but i have a problem, i set the hsn to 2 1/2 out and it was runnin great, did spit test and was too cold, so i leaned it 1/8, ran great still cool, leaned it another 1/8 and it bogged when i floored it when not going fast or from a start. what is this, it couldnt be rich right, cause it was runnin good before, and i dont think it could be lean cause it was still not hott (spit couldnt sizzle even when sitting on the head for a bit). so can anbody tell me what is going on with my truck?? btw its a 1/10 volcano vx18

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    That's how you tune the motors you lean it out till it starts to mess up then you back it off an 1/8th to a 1/4th turn and thats the best it will run. If its still running cool after the best tune then you need to wrap the head of the motor with aluminum foil because its to cold outside.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I bought a temp gun to get accurate temps, but its not really needed to tune if you have a good ear and watch the smoke. Maybe try a new glow plug or get a hotter one. Sometimes the sweet spot is hard to find. Make sure you are revving it up to clear out carb between adjustments. Also it can be hard to get temps up when it is cold. Check carb opening to make sure servo is adjusted properly and brake is not engaged. Once you get the high speed to lean/bog turn back to rich side untill it runs better and start leaning the low speed needle. Hope this helps.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    i kinda looked a little bit about fuel, but didnt really find anything. i heard that nitrotane is the best fuel power-wise, then O'Donnell's second, what is a good fuel for my vx18, i run 20% O'Donnell's right now, should i stick with that or is there something better?
