    The aluminum shock towers on the extreme forza/tornado do bend incredibly easy. they should be re-engineered by the manufacturer or made using a stronger aluminum. But it is an easy way for the retailer to make a quick $40 for selling the upgraded ones.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    If your shocks are filled properly and don't leak 40wt is plenty good..........your going to scrape even with 90wt but 40 keeps the travel loose enough for good all round handling [:-]

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Just about any of the standard ground recievers will work, The one thing I will suggest is if you don't have the aluminum upper plate you should get one. The reason being that you need to get the battery away from the reciever. The cheaply made batteries that all come from China splatter electric impulses that interfear with the RF and can cause problems.............including run away even with a failsafe

    What? that's the rottiest rot I ever heard. Batteries do not exhibit this kind of behavior. Even cheap ones. Poorly made servos on the other hand - they'll cause you problems.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The air filter isn't the greatest. I will work o.k. but you have to keep up on cleaning it. Definitely worth $15 to get a better one. Don't forget about a fuel filter too. It will save your carburetor.

    It really no problem getting dirty as long as its away from your RX, You can also put in a 3 way plug that allows you to charge the hump pack without taking it out or unplugging it [:-]

    When you get your truck let me know how it is I`ve been considering getting one. I have a monsoon, hurricane and tsunami already might as well keep going right.
