    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Well my guide said that if it is still going when the idle screw is backed out to put the brake on, thats how i fried my first tranny I had the brake on all the way on the first one ( i am new to nitro so i got the idle screw and the low speed needle mixed up) But this time on even a 15 degree of incline it stops moving forward, so i put the brake on just barely. Do you still think that is the clutch spring, because i really don't want to take the engine out after i just took every thing apart to replace the tranny. I will do wut ever it takes though

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    i don't think it's the clutch spring, especially if it's new. I noticed with my landslide and the sh .18 motor that it didnt' want to idel low enough, i notice that that the carb doesnt' return all the way closed so you can use a throttle return spring, check out redharris on the Himoto RCU forum and ask him about his throttle return springs. also once i got through the break in and leaned it out to a good perfoming tune, the idle seemed to go down.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    it ain't the throttle spring i know that, maybe your right about the tuning, i mean the brake is not on that hard so i hope i don't go through another tranny. Once i tune i will post about if the idle goes down are not, I have had the car since the 5 of January and i am still tuning. Oh i cant wait for it to work well!!!!

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Thats alot of tune time. Try turning your LSN out 1/8 turn. It'll bring down the idle a bit and it should stop it from creeping. It after you do that, you still feel that the idle itself is too low and it's cutting out, then turn in your idle screw 1/8 turn. Tunning tips tp remember, HSN is first, LSN is second and after that if you need to adjust idle, that's done last.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    ok guys, here it goes. im absolutly brand new to rc. (newbie). i have owned a tornado bb for exactly 1 week. got it on trade. ran it couple of times and now seem to be hooked!!. with that said, my probl is that when i go to use the pull start, it seems to pull very heavey and hard. took the plug out and it pulls easier but still not smooth. almost like too much compression. pulls about an inch or two then catches and becomes hard again. busted a knuckle already, bled all over the place, not cool!! did i break something already?
    no jumps, no accidents (yet), just pavement. any ideas?? please help.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    im a newb to but it sounds like u hydro locked it. i do it all the time when i am tryin to start it. u need to take the plug out and turn it over and pull the start. its kinda hard to do upside down but u can do it. or u can do what i do and just put ur ignitor on it and pull so it burns the bit that is in the chamber till it starts

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    thanks for the reply!! ill give it a try in a few mins and let you know. i was thinking that maybe the one way bearing was bad or worse yet the motor was shot. i took off the pull start and it seemed ok. im pretty new to this so when something goes wrong im thinking the worst.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I've found the easiest thing to do is heat the motor up to about 175-200 with a hair dryier. After that 2-3 pulls and she fires right up. But yeah if you over prime the motor she'll flood on you. Never fun but it happens.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    When it gets tight at the top of the cylinder, thats normal. these engines use the "pinch" at the top and if you dont have any pinch, you dont have a running motor

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I knew the stock servos were no good from the start and I wasn't going to take any chances. So I ordered some Traxxas 2075 waterproof servos. They give me 125oz of torque and no problems. As soon as I got my buggy the stocks came off and went right in the trash. I heard alot of bad things about them. Anyway, what kind of Hitec servo did you throw in there?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I will tell you this though. My throttle servo is pretty twitchie. I thought it had something to do with the failsafe, so I disconnected it and it didn't help. I have read that sometime when the Linkage is close to the motor head, it'll give issues like this. They say to put some heat shrink tub on it but that didnt help much either. Oh well, it is what it is. Good luck dude.
