thanks dennis, it fit perfect, i put the hpi 15tooth bell on it but the down side is that it is raining so i didnt get a chance to try it out, hopefully it will be better with the single speed and the bigger tires. Your the best bro

i have the electric 1/5 ninja, i think nitro would be a pain in the a** on a bike, i will probably get that eventually. LOL
heres a picture of my stock tsunami, i have changed the clutch bell to a 2 speed hpi set up and changed the clutch spring, may change the rims to chrome.

You guys are way to obvious. Have you no shame. Redcat should rename the forum.
Maybe Tank will.....

I am confused by the tank thing, actually the whole comment he made is a little confusing, does anyone understand what he was trying to say?

Dunno either. Tank bought Redcat Motors. Tank did not buy Redcat Racing, that still is owned by me and we are moving it next week to a new location.

the Tsunami is a great truck, aside from the obvious clutchbell issue, which Redcat apparently doesn't think enough of their customers to get taken care of.

What I don't understand though is why the volcano pro doesn't have the Tsunami wheels/tires and the 2 speed, LOL

and yes, I understand that would effectively make it a Tsunami with a Volcano body...

I heard thru the grapevine that redcat will be getting hardned steel clutch bells and better springs on their stuff in the next couple of months.

ok, got to run 5 tanks thru the tsunami before the rain came down pretty heavy. i just started to lean it out a little. have the 2 speed shifting good, just need to tune in the next tank, maybe next weekend. The truck handles nice, and has the same speed as the tornado xp i think. will know more as i start to tune it, overall i really like this truck.
