    RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

    hi i am new to rc cars and i have tried to fix this without asking and just reading but i dont think i did anything. so after i start the car it just wants to keep running really fast even without any gas. the only way i can get it to not move it when i put the brakes on. so i want some help on this if possible. also on a different area sometimes the engine sounds like it is going full speed right after i start it and i just want to know if this is normal.
    Thanks
    -Jean

    you need to turn the trim down for the throttle, its on the remote, small round knob, usually say th on it for throttle. it depends on the radio you have.

    RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

    when i try changing things on the controller they do not stay.(i have the FM controller) and sometimes the controller seems to freeze when i change things and i can not control anything on the car. and when i turn it off it just goes back to what it was.
    thanks for all the help.

    sounds like a defective digital controller, if its less than 30 days old, redcat will warranty it, drop them an email asap

    RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

    Greetings all !

    Just got my redcat hurricane pro in the mail today waiting for warmer weather to break it in but I was wondering what that little bag of plastic washer like things are? The buggy is awesome!! This is my first nitro vehicle I have been into electric heli's for awhile have a trex se 450 and an esky king . My friend also ordered the hurricane pro but it hasn't arrived yet

    The quality of this buggy is excellent .. I read a bit about redcat and watched the video's on youtube before getting this. Can't wait to fire it up. Got some 20% blue thunder for them too.

    RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

    you put them on top of the spring on the shock, its to make them more tense to give the shock more preload, i just loosen the spring clamp, set it and tighten the screw.

    RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

    ehroof...how high you run your shocks on your cane?>..if I put them all the way up it messes up my steering..doesnt like to turn left...lower them with maybe half inch spacers it will turn..I jump mine and dont wanna mess it up...I got a jr 590m steering servo so I dont think its that...extend them all the way out and it wants to hang up turning left

    Hmm yeah the tin foil should help it keep the heat . Perhaps I'll try breaking it in like that tomorrow .

    Which Blue thunder did you get? I had gotten the HP8 formula before my Cane arrived and someone told me that the 8% wasn't enough oil in the mix (especially for break in). So I went out and got some Nitrotane instead. I could be wrong, but I figured I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    10% Castor oil It seems possible to fry the engine with too lean of a setting but that is what makes it exciting !

    RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

    My car (Hurricane XP) is at a dramatic loss of range. I think it has something to do with the antenna but not completely sure. Any suggestions?
