    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    First take off the air filter and look into the carb. When you apply the breaks the opening sould be about 1 mm. Turn the screw ccw for faster idle (bigger opening) and cw for slower idle and a smaller opening.

    Yeah it looks like it'll be a pain in the as$ to do. Just play it safe with the stock set-up and you'll be fine.

    i guess i'll use their single speed from red cat but a jato 3.3 engine and clutch bell

    probly a 14t with the tire/wheel i'm using..... not as big as a truggy's but bigger than stock

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I must be a freaking idiot. I have a redcat lightning and seem to have it out of tune and dont know what the hell I'm doing. I wish I could get it to it's factory setting again. And I really wish I had not started messing with those tuning needles. CRAP.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    HSN- 2 3/4
    LSN- Either 2 or 1 3/4
    Idle- 1mm gap ( dont know turns on that one)

    That'll bring you back to stock.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Setup Problems - Wheels Spin even though idle scree is down all of the way. We also tried to adjust the speed needles.

    We are in the process of breaking in the engine. Have run one tank of gas. Now ready to do the figure 8's, but cannot until the engine is running and the wheels are not spinning.

    Thanks for your help.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Ok put your needles to factory settings

    Hsn- 2.5-3 turns out
    Lsn- flush with the collar
    And then put your idle to about 1mm gap, take your air filter off and make sure the gap is about 1mm.

    Make sure when your braeking in your engine gets to at least 200, but no too hott. You wanna run it rich and give it extra fuel, but not too much.

    Your idle should be good at those settings, also pull on the pull cord, if the wheels wanna turn with it then your clutch spring is broke. OR if your car wont stay on unless moving its broken

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    With the needles set right and the wheels still wanna move turn your LSN needle out 1/8 turn. You'll notice later once your done break in and tunning for performance, that when you turn you LSN in it'll also bring the rpm's up. Which is fine as long as your still getting performance out of it. Once you done adjusting you high and low speed needles, turn out you IDLE set screw till it has a nice easy idle to it. But for now, just turn you LSN out a hair.

    While breaking in my sh .18 my buggy kept creaping on me. I turned out my LSN and it calmed it down till I was done break in.

    I think "Down" all the way would raise the idle. You want to back the screw out to lower the idle.

    Turn your clutch bell by hand there should be no metal-on-metal rubbing feel or anything like. If there is then the clutch spring might be busted causing the clutch to be always engaged. In which case it'll never idle low enough not to spin the wheels. Busted clutch spring happened to me at break in.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    well i started on my 3.3 trx 1/10 tornado today...... alot of parts are on the way...... not the stock one thats my daily beater... new purple skid plate is the project one

    plans: anodized purple aluminum- plate, links, fuel and air filter, control arms, window screen, and wheeels
    6kg high torque servos, 3.3 jato motor, stock differentials, single speed trans from red cat [] possibly mt2 trans
    fm radio with stub antenna
    jato piggy tailed upgraded jato shocks
    possibly truggy wheel and tire.... little bigger than stock rears
    dark silver(charcoal metalic with anodized purple screen for window cut outs
    carbon fiber wing and race pipe[8D]

    it should be a good build and will take a 4-5 more weeks til completion because i'm buying a truck this week from my shop i work for

    here is my work table in my room i made with some custom shelves along with my stock vx.18 tornado with a taste of my purple screen in the front window and my traxxas bandit anaconda wheel/tire combo

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Are the Traxxas Jato shock a perfect fit for these buggies? I really need some new shock. I added some thicker oil to them and even used a couple of those black spacers they give you to help stiffen it up. But she's still all over the place. I think it's more the sring than it is the shock. Any suggestions?

    If you don't like the arm throw then get some shock stoppers, that will stiffen it up for you [:-]

    What do you mean, "shock stoppers"? You talking about those black spacers that clip on around the shock?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The black spacers are for setting preload (ride height) not spring stiffness. They don't make the springs any stiffer. If you place so many in that you lose any static droop then you end up with a very bouncy ride.

    If you want stiffer springs, then buy stiffer springs! The Jato ones might be good, I don't really know how stiff they are. Most Stadium trucks and the like have fairly soft springs, you might need to look into shocks intended for a heavier truck.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    With the Idle screw closed, shouldn't that bring up the RPM? I know on my sh .18 it does. Turning it out lowers it. That may be your problem there. If not then it would only take a few minutes to get the motor out and the clutch bell off to see if the spring is broke. Simple fix really. Good luck

    It should be OK its the length of the wire that is important for the signal............it can be just as bad if its to long as to short though. Do a field test and make sure its working and for heavens sake put a fail safe on it [&o]

    If your idle screw is backed out all the way it should shut off [&:] if your getting a low idle and its still trying to move......the clutch would be the first place to look [:-]
