    check your drive cups. They might be worn causing alotof play in the dog bones.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The cups from the HPI MT2 also use 5mm shafts same as Redcat, so you can fit those and use the thicker MT2 dogbones too. Eminentguitar has done it, so send him a PM for details.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I just got my Tornado S-30 today and I am EXTREMELY impressed by the quality of the product

    My only thing is that when I opened the package and did a preliminary inspection of the contents, I noticed that the transmitter was rattling alot. As soon as I opened the battery box at the base of the transmitter, a small piece of plastic fell out, and the unit still rattles[sm=confused_smile.gif] Other than that, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the quality of the car or anything else that came with it.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    My friends Tornado BB hasn't been run for about 6 months and when we tried to start it today it wouldn't start. It wasn't getting fuel so we replaced the fuel lines but it still won't get fuel. Also, when we turn it upside down fuel comes out of the fuel tank at the lid. What do you guys think is wrong?

    That's what I thought, will I have to buy a new tank or is there a way to repair this?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    You should be able to replace the o-ring, check & see if it's broken or miss seated. You can remove it & reinstall with a little grease that might help.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Just how waterproof do you want it? you can easily achieve splashproof / snowproof but running underwater isn't really achievable.

    You can remove the servo and put a balloon around them. It's a little bit of work but it's not hard once you get the hang of it. FIRSTLY smooth off all the sharp edges of the servo mounts so they don't tear the balloon. THe cable should come out the balloon neck, and then ziptie it real good. Pierce the balloon with a pin through where the servo shaft is and push the balloon down around it. Slop a tiny bit of grease there and put the servo horn back on. Putting an o-ring there (if it fits) or a teflon washer is probably a good idea just so the horn doesn't rub against the balloon and tear it. If you split the balloon when you remount the servo, then just slop some superglue on there.

    Do the same with the receiver and batteries. Seal the bottom of the housing where the cables leave. The box housing the battery and receiver is pretty splashproof as it is, so you don't need to go all-out with waterproofing here.

    Nitro will eat at balloons after a few weeks, so you'll need to refresh the balloons occasionally so keep an eye on their condition.

    Put some tape across underneath where the transmission gears are exposed, just to keep too much splash from coming up under there.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    you can use plastic dip or rubber spray to waterproof servos too. just be sure to tape off the part that moves..lol balloons do work great for the receiver and batteries. never seen one on a servo..

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    you probably have a loose grub screw. pull the 2 speed back out and make sure they are tight with blue lock tite. and make sure the ones coming off the diffs are tight too

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    the motor dropped right in, i have 2.5R brand new laying around and was thinking about dropping it in my tornado bb, would it be a direct fit. I was looking and it did not seem like would lign up with the trans. did you have to do any mods, and did you use the stock 3.3 clutch with a diffent clutch bell. any help would be appreciated.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    the redcat clutch and bell fit the 3.3 flywheel fine. when i used the 2 speed i think i had to use a dremel on the chassis where it mounted(the bell was too close and 2nd gear on the bell rubbed first gear on the tranny). I think i only grinded away 1/8". Make sure you have a screw to hold the engine to the chassis with a big head on it if you grind away some of it so the engine wont move around.


    anyways guys i sold or ruined all my redcat/himoto cars. I'll probably be off this page for a while...If you need something let me know...I might get another tornado when then finally release the metal tranny...

    Have fun and good luck guys!
