Default RE: Redcat Racing Hurricane Thread

Ok guys, I am looking for a part that has been eluding me for last year, i have looked many places for this part, it is the only part I cannot not find, maybe someone here has found it and can provide me with a link. Not sure what the part is called but I will do my best to descride it. So this part is for a hurricane xp, it located on the front upper dump brace, this part is what the front upper shock mounts on, the upper shock cap has a plastic bushing or spacer that goes into the eye hole of this cap, now this eye hole and bushing mount to this part and attaches to the dump brace, it is aluminum and it is threaded, it acts as a spacer to keep the shock upright and inline with lower mount. I would apreciate any clues to locating this part! Thanks

I have talked to nick last year about this, he said they don't have that part available because it is not considered a wear part, as far as I am concerned every single part on these little machines is a wear part! I guess I could try again!

I have been quite brutal to my Hurricane and this part has almost seen its life. All it takes is a pretty good crash to ruin this part. I sent another email to Nick I will for surely keep everyone updated! With the warm weather on its way and this jump sitting in my shop, I know I am going to need one this season.

Hello Firebird. Thanks again for the wheels. Was almost done breaking in the new engine and ran into the neighbors basketball goal base. Broke the left front suspension arms. Of course Redcat was out of the upper arm. Got the alumimum upgrade coming so should be back at it this weekend.

If you dont mind replacing both sides, I have a set I believe would work.

My Guess is that it is the battery pack connections, make sure you tape them or use a rubber band so they dont wiggle out. I would strongly recommend getting a hump pack.
