Here's a few...





Got two XTM X-Cellerators in there... The nitro just blows the Tornado BB away... I bought it for my older Brother, (30), and he broke it by running it into a curb. I'm in the process of fixing it for him now...



All stock! Man, these things were so clean out of the box!!!





Here's my baby with all of the upgrades done... She's a beaut!









That's all for now. I have too many pics of tearing it down, rebuild... I'm thinking about snatching up a Backdraft. Can't decide if I want a RC10 GT or Traxxas either.

Well, I tighten all screws every time after I run, but I didn't know the screws would back out of these aluminum arms as much as they did, and I lost a dogbone... No biggie, the thing still runs better than ever, even with 3-wheel drive! I'll go pick up a few sets at the hobby shop in a few days.

I used loctite today to take care of them all, and they haven't budged. I'm so happy that nothing has moved or broken! Took them out a few minutes ago, and still have to tune-in the girls. Her's is running way to rich, and she doesn't care. As long as it runs for her, she's happy!

Do newer Vortex come with those tires? They look like what is on the Exceed short course truck. My Vortex came with the tornado tires. Also, is that a slash sticker for the bed area with the fans and fuel cell?

Redcat sells 2 types of RTR Vortex Trucks 1 The EPX PRO is a Brushless and has diff tires. 2 The EP model has the bigger tires (shown in pictue) and has a brushed motor and is about half the cost. I believe the EP brushed model is IDENTICAL to the Exceed Rally Desert Truck only diff I could see was the Graphics on the Body. As for the fan artwork Yes I used the Traxxas Sticker as a guide but re-created the graphics (I used Corel Draw) Created my own stickers to custom fit the smaller body space on the smaller Vortex area. If you tried to just use the original size of the Traxas from the Slash, they would not fit well or look right.

Just thought you would want to see my latest Redcat. Its thAftershock and its 1/8th scale brushless 4WD with dual Lipo batteries all stock! Speed Gun clocked at 47 MPH staight out the box no aftermkt mods. Alo you get a basic trickle charger and standard AM Transmitter for onl $359.00 The only thing you have to do is charge the batteies and 8 AA 's for the Transmitter and you screaming down the track at blinding speed

Glad you like it.

Its funny. I have one in my office out of the box so I can look at it while I am working. I love how the body and graphics came out. It has become my favorite Redcat.

Post some video when you get some time and have a great time with it.

Wow some really nice cars out there.

Not sure if many post this RedCat though.

Here's my Tornado EPX all stock, and except for the receiver, all original. I love the way it works all around, handling, acceleration, top speed, etc.

I agree tornadoguy, the brushed ones are great, top speed isnt the best for speed runs but its plenty fast for off roading, or on tight tracks like my local one. But i kept smokin motors so i went brushless and its amazing.

They have incredible speed right out of the box, very powerful. I have sold all that arrived for my shop already.

Do you have any better specs on the motor? Can the ESC handle an upgraded motor?

Wow those are some great pix!! NICE CUSTOM PAINT JOB!! that has to be without a doubt the best looking Redcat body paint job. Most of my Vortex's are trashed from the Arizona Sun melting them when I race at the the track. There Lexan does not stand up to the heat very well. its abit Ironic because Redcat headquarters are rigt here in Phoenix. here are a couple pix of My Lighted (but melted and warped) Body Vortex and my Aftrershock. All of the fans and grill stickers were created by me although I admit I copied the Traxxas Slash stickers because the are the most realistic for short course trucks. Unfortunately I can't find any "Clear" Bodies for my Trucks so i can only add on to the "stock" (print) paint job they provide. You should enter it in RC Trading Post (an on line RC store) they have paint contest all the time and I am sure you would win.

Hey dude, just to let you know the SLASH BODY should work. The wheelbase on my Backdraft fits perfectly with the jconcepts shell. Just a thought. I have been of the forums for so long I dont even no where to look there are soooo many ndw thing on here. I have many I could list but its not right if they are for customers - anyways I will have posts on here for the redcat with a racebody - should looke great I hope
The site shows from redcat is 525 but in person is 535 which is the same as the slayer slash. Still very nice truck dude - ours will be here next week.
