Hook it up bro, i like the volcano as a single speed though, i think the 2 speed would not work well on the volcano.

the gearing on the redcat 2 speeds is too high, the tornado has small wheels. the volcano has nice snap as it is

you would probably have a hard time routing the exhaust, i dont know if you would have the room behind the engine.
