HELP! Does anyone know if the nitro engine on my Volcano can cause interferance with my radio controls? Here's the deal. With the engine not runnning the controls work flawlessly 10 20 40 60 feet away and more. But when I start the engine the radio controls are irratic or dont respond at all. If the motor isn't causing it what else can it be? I've replaced beatteries several times charged the reciever battery and tried a new one. Checked all connections on the truck. Checked the crystals. I dont know where else check. Please Help

The motor should not cause any interference. I've had 3 diffrent trucks and never had that happen. R u using a rotostart or something electronic to start it?

actually the motor can cause interfearence. Check the antenna, make sure its not broken anywhere or touching metal.

Hey everyone, forum is still great and helpful! I have a question that may be dumb or may not be. I noticed on my volcano that i can move the spur gear from front to back inside the differential box until it hits both sides (casing of diff box) either way. Is this normal or is something wrong? Doesnt really seem to be hurting it but thought i might check and see what you fellas thought.

i found the upgrade made a good improvement all around. You need to use a 13 tooth bell with it though to keep low end power.

No i Havent checked inside the diff yet but upon outer examination it appears fine, and works fine. I will have to check it out this afternoon after work. It has been that way for a while, i didnt believe it was right. Thanks tho overdrivest ill examine it further. I was hoping someone else had the experience of this same problem if its even a problem. Ill check it out and let you know. Thanks so much man, and any one else that offers help.

ok good, because i actualy prefer the low end to high end, but high end is always fun too. And i did get the 13 tooth in the package from clermont.

i think there is a 42 tooth but it give more high end than low end power, more teeth more low end on the spur and the opposite on the clutch bell

02112 and 05112 are the only ones you can use for the single speed setup (clermont) the other are for the electrics or the other cars and stuff

os or sh .18, uprgaded header and pipe, direct drive tranny and 13 tooth clutchbell, t-maxx shocks, motor saver air filter, port and polish your engine sleeve, and there is probably alot more, this is just my rookie opinion, you should be asking eroof. Hey eddie you wanna help me out here?

Be pacient. Just wait for the dogbone to come in so u don't break anything else. Nice Volcano by the way and also, it won't be 3 wd drive. It will only be two because of the way the differentills are designd
