    hi my name is Alan and I'm looking for transmission gears, Have Redcat Tornado BB with 2 speed, transmission gears are stripped looking to upgrade. Does anyone know what I would need?
    Yea me too. I put a traxxas 2.5R on my Tornado and my tranny gears are gone now. Do they have a upgrade from the plastic one?
    Ehroof told me himoto is working on a metal 2 speed tranny. Not out yet. I said screw it and went to the single speed in all mine until they release the metal ones. Haven't changed a gear since.
    Is the 1 speed just as fast. the 2,5R was too much power for the gears. Id like to have good low end and decent top end. I want my cake and to eat it too...LOL. So how good does the 1 speed do?
    With that traxxas engine you should still be giong pretty quick. Mine with the os 18cv-rx was faster then my buddies bone stock with the 2 speed.

    i know these fit...i have them mounted but waitin for my old tires to wear down some more before i use them.
    if you DO get them, use the foam inserts that come with it and be sure they are glued on good.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    how come they both say front? i need a fronts and backs.

    will just getting rear wheels for the front and the back screw anything up? if they dont i'll just get rear wheels for the front and the back and get the rear tires.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The shifting is all done in the tranny. Your first gear is on a one-way bearing, the second gear has a little metal pin coming off the side. there is a little round metal piece that has 2 allen set-screws in it that does the shifting. It basically has a spring holding in a metal slide so at a certain rpm the little slide piece will come out and catch 2nd gear. If it's not shifting fist check the allen screw that goes straight in. That one should be tight. If that's held on there good you can adjust it on the second allen set-screw that goes in at an angle. Tighten it for later shifting, loosen for earlier shifts. Only takes a little bit. No switches, it's all done with centrifugal force.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    ^ good explanation about the shifting! I finally got to take the tornado out for a couple runs after changin the clutch bell (2speed), clutch spring and putting in a new 2 speed trans thingy loll. The car runs like a beast!! The top end is ridiculous compared to stock! Although i still think my car is stuck in 2nd gear, it doesn't have a good low end...not even enough to do decent donuts. Its either that OR the new bigger teeth made that much of a difference which i didn't think it would AND i just dont have enough road for it to shift into 2nd which means even more speed when it does!! ...buuut i think its just not startin out in 1st gear. anyway i didn't have much time to tinker n sort it out...i only ran 1 tank before i had to pack it in. quite a tease! .....oh and my front tires kept comin off lol. forgot to glue them. lost 1 in the trees and spent about 10mins lookin for it lol[:@]

    and my gear mesh seems a little too tight. should the color be wearin off the gears (the purple and gold) after 1 tank? and they seem to make a wining sound when the car is moving

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    your gears might be too tight, thats why they might be whining, sometimes mine wines, but its always fine. and the color might be coming off cause its either cause its tight or your engine is really hot, or your clutch is rubbin a lot and gettin way hot.

    Take off the second gear...rofl The only way I have had luck with the gears is by going 1 speed. The only time i run 2 speed i have 3 spare trannies sitting here so I can drive more then 2 tanks.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    My buggy had tons of problems.It hasn't ran normally in months.When I press the throttle I have to wait a few seconds for the buggy to move and when it moves it's very slow.I have replaced the receiver and the servos and I still have radio problems.I think maybe my transmitter has a problem.Is there any way to check?

    Is it the servo with the delay problem or the engine? If it's the engine the tuning is off. Most likely the adjustment in the center of the rotor on the carb. If it's the servo make sure all your batteries are good.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I replaced all the electronics for about 65 dollars. I got a hitec agressor remote with one regular servo and a high torque servo now it worcks much better. The stock stuff sucks. Go to your lockal hobby shop and get new stuff you will thank yourself once you drive it for the fisrt time with the new electronics.
