I always use a dremel to open up the header where it connects to the engine. It adds performance because it reduces back pressure[sm=48_48.gif]

U could buy any side exhaust hi-performance system and it should work. I believe there all the same size.

Bahahaha guys today my friend friieeeeeed his volcano .. he didnt know how to break it in and so he went to the local hobby store, and they told him to put it facing a wall/stairs. So he gets home and he didnt relize that when he got the car he played around with the throttle control on the radio. So the thing was tryin to move and it fried his spur gear, his flywheel is discoloured and his air filter is melted from the bottom lmaoooo!! [sm=tongue_smile.gif]


That thing mustve been in the high 400s

$186.00 off of RCU. It was this cheap because the guy thought the motor was seized. Turns out, it was set to low on the idle. Now, it runs awnsome. U want me to shot a vid so u can see it?

It depends on your liking and expericence. The Revo has a lower center-of-gravity so it doesn't roll over as easy. The T-MAXX has more ground clearence and its a bit faster. I couldn't do a vid today but I will try tomorrow.

It could be to lean or to rich. Try going back to factory needle settings.

Any normal lenght hot glow plug should work. Don't get the long ones that are for traxxas. My brother fell for that one.

Hi every one....i haveing a big problem here....
I have one Volcano and i have some radio problem and my car crash...so this is not the big problem because i can fix taking new parts....
The big problem come when i start disassemble each part of my car to check what is good and what i need buy new....
So now with the new parts i'm with a big problem because i do not remember how mount again.
I check the manual but do not help too much....
I'm here to check if some one have a manual teaching mount again.
Or maybe with pictures of the details to help me a mount again...

Tks

Maybe if you take some pictures of the Shock Plate front and back.
This gonna help me...because i have a Exceed Rc Infinity too and some parts is the same of the Volcano.
I know the Shock Plate is the same but the parts where i connect the wheels is different.

Tks
