    well i don't know if your an idiot or not but these things aren't junk. You just need to know how to maintian them, and have experience driving. the spur gear broke because you didn't have it meshed correctly, or you meshed it correctly and didn't loctite the engin mount screws, or you hit a ramp and landed on the rear wheels with too much throttle.

    edit: don't fool yourself your so called brand name rc's will have problems with them too, it's just part of the hobbie.

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    winged, i bet you either have it meshed wrong, or you land on the throttle. something is wrong, its not the quality becasue tons of people on here have no problems. do you know how to mesh correctly?

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    Well you need to make sure that they are all lock tighted, because the vibration can shake the screws loose. how are yu meshing it?

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    ok this is what i do to mesh the gears. i mount the engine with no locktight and with the screws loose. i then put a thin piece of paper between the spur and cb. then move the engine to make the gears contact, push a decent amount, make it snug. then holding the engine right where it is tighten the screws under the chassis. Then pull the piece of paper out, it should be folded like an acordian but it shouldnt tear. then put the car on the ground and push it back and forth, or do it in the air, it should roll smoothly with no binding. then i put a screwdriver on the spur from the left side of the car and the move the clutchbell. there should be a little bit of play in the gears, a small amout, if i had ot guess maybe like just under a mm or so. if there is no play redo it and make it looser, if there is too much play redo it and make it tighter. then once the mesh is set right take one screw out at a time and locktight it, and put it in and do the same with the next 3. you get used to it the more you do it, but thats what i do and ive had my spur for months now and have gone through probably a gallon and half, and the spur is still in great shape

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    thats why ur spur gear stripped because it wasn't meshed correctly, and ur right about these rtr they should be called "artr"(almost ready to run) because you do have to do some little things befor running

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    i didnt move anything cause i have these little neddle nose pliers that worked great.or i might have already cut the brace off im not sure.but i bet if you took off the muffler you prolly could get to it easy
    ps i have a volcano s30 not sure what you have



    or u need some thing to wedge the screw on the bottom and un screw at the top.like a little screw driver just so u could hold the lock nut tight

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    Quick question. What wheels does everyone use on their Volcano? I'm going to be picking up an EPX Pro and it seems that the front wheels for the Traxxas Stampede/Rustler would be the best fit on all four corners. Am I wrong?

  25. #1325

    RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread

    Any 2.8 rims and tires will work, if your using the ones for the Traxxas Rustler/Stampede/jato then you want all 4 rears.
    Dealer for..Redcat, Traxxas, Associated, Cen, Racers Edge, RD Logic, Losi, HPI, E-flight, Himoto, Venom, Heli-Max, O.S...etc
