    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Whats up everyone,

    Need some help.... Have a brand new out of the box Tornado BB and was following all the steps to break in the engine. Tested all the electronics with fresh batteries and the tested the engine.. Both worked like a champ. All of a sudden the controls just stopped working... Checked all the connections and made sure they were tight... Changed out the batt's for new ones and nothing... Let the car sit for about an hour and everything works again... Then 5 min's later the electronics just quit... This has happened now about 3 times. Any clue what's up? I am new so please break your answers down into plain english... Just kidding But please do.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    ok i got it running without the power loss but while i was working on it i was putting pressure on the rubber boot that surrounds the low end needle and noticed air bubbles forming in the barrel of the carb. does this mean my carb is bad?

    sounds like you got a bad radios setup, call redcat and as long as its within 30 days they should give you a new one. actually you should upgrade it, for less than $50 you can get a decent futaba setup.

    what is the problem you are having? If its running good and not overheating, i wouldnt worry about it.

    here you go, with a little patience you can do it or he can, if there is a problem, just come here and we will help.

    1. upgrade your 2 speed clutch bell to: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...4&I=LXCLR2&P=K + http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...4&I=LXDHM0&P=K + http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...4&I=LXCLR9&P=K
    you may need to widdle away a little of the upper plate post so the gears clear it

    2.upgrade to this clutch spring traxxas 4146x : http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=++&search3=Go

    Replaced these parts on the Tornado XP. Can you tell me what differences replacing these individual parts was supposed to make?? Just want to make sure that we are getting the right response with the replacements. Thanks.

    it will stop the spur gear from stripping in the first few tanks of fuel also the spring will last alot longer than the stock one, you may see some more top end since there is a tooth more on the new clutch bell you put in.

    this header will fit nicely: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXBTB5&P=ML

    try retuning the whole engine, start with 3 out on the high end and flush with the collar on the low end. Maybe you have something clogging the low end needle? take it out and try to clean it out inside, be careful with it.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    make sure there's not a hole in the fuel or pressure line, also make sure the tank cap is sealing good. if you want some nitro engine reading, check this out: http://www.*********.org/cars_eng-tuning.htm there are alot of good links and information there

    Stock carb, bottom right.

    Also if you haven't tried it yet, you can take the carb aparts and pull out the O-rings and run to the local Hardware store and see if you can match them up, sounds like the O-rings are worn out.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    can i paint my block or will it cause overheating?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Don't paint block, the paint will trap the heat in. Besides the nitro fuel just peel the paint off. If you really want to change the color of your block you need to take it apart and anodize it. but you have to dip it in a solvent to get it clean first, it's a stinky messy process and takes some practice, but looks cool when you get a handle on it.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The hurricane XP has been discontinued from Redcat, but about ten other companies are building the car, there's no shortage of parts, unless your stuck buying from Redcat exclusivly and don't know that it's the same car as the Earthquake [sm=wink_smile.gif]. You can get sulfuric acid from a hardware store, it comes in a plastic container to put in a battery for a riding lawnmower. Anodizing is pretty simple but be sure to do it in an area where there is good ventalation, it stinks to high heaven [sm=52_52.gif]
