    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    hey, i just got another problem. this is the first day i ran the tornado bb through the dirt, and something is binding up. it isn't the center drivetrain, it is single wheels locking up on their own. anybody have any ideas? i think dirt may have gotten into the gearbox-but as i said before, i don't really want to take that apart.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    First is your spur gear stripped? the gear your clutch bell meshes with, is that intact. if so then you have a grub screw loose on the tranny or diffs. the little grub screws come loose that hold the drive cup on. and the drive cup holds the dog bone. take the tranny out and make sure the grub screws are all tightened on the flat part of the shaft. you get what im saying?

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    I just picked up a Redcat Racing Landslide. I am having some issues with the truck. This is my first nitro car so I don't know all the particulars yet. The carb setting were all so far off I couldn't get the engine to fire at all. After some internet searching I found the online manual for my SH18 engine. I made the adjustments and it started up and idled for about 10-15 mins during break in. I think I had it a little rich. Anyway the big issue is that there was definite fuel seepage around the grow plug in the head of the engine. The glow plug was screwed down all the way w/ washer. I don't think that should happen with a new engine. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Do I need to replace the head? Also my Landslide came out of the box with a pretty serious toed out stance in the front. Is this factory spec?

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Would someone be able to refer me to a web site that sells turbo chargers for my new Nitro 4-Tec 3.3? Also, are they bad for you’re your motor?

    Thanks,

    Alowco

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Turbo and superchargers dont work on 2 strokes. Basically all its doing is forcing air into the cylinder, which means you can add more fuel, and the more air and fuel you put through a motor the more power. But on a 2 stroke the intake and exhaust are open at the same time, so when you shoot more air/fuel into the cylinder, it just blows out the exhaust, resulting is the same amount of air/fuel as without a turbo/supercharger. So i would suggest not getting one, but rather getting a bigger motor. Or if you really wanted a turbo, get a four stroke motor and put one on. But it would be best to just get a bigger better motor for more power.

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    Hey guys...my son is very new to hobby. He unpacked his Volcano truck the other night, and promptly started tweaking things. End result is that both wheels on right side no longer turn freely (and we've yet to even fire it up). We tried adjusting motor mount but that did not fix problem. Any ideas?

    RE: Redcat vehicle repair/tune FAQ

    more than likely he just overtigtend the wheels try taking the wheels of then putting them back one, the tire nuts should just be snug against the wheels, don't tighten them as much as you possibly can

    edit: make sure you have a good mesh between the clutchbell(gear on end of motor) and the spur gear( gear on trans connected to clutchbell) check out the redcat site for break in and tuning procedures
