    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I lost my wheel hex and the pin that holds it in place on the wheel axle. I thought when i ordered the wheel hex it would come with the pin but i guess not. does anybody know the part # for the pin or do i have to order the whole axle? thanx

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I looked in the manual but there is no part number next to the pin. But I dont know what assembly you would have to buy to get that pin. I'll take a look on redcat's/exceed's website to see if I can't find it. I'll post later, have to run out with the wife. Wal-Mart fun fun

    Those things can be a real pain, if you can't find them at redcat, HPI pins off the RS4 will work just the same. A little tip for you is to put some silicone glue on the pin before you insert it. This way it won't fall out when you remove you wheel but well come off easly when pulled or pushed on.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I in all my years have never seen such a thing. The starter shaft broke in three diff. places. This came out of the 3.3 in the shockwave. Thank the lord I had a spare 2.5 to throw in it till I get it cleaned up and fixed.

    Dont bash Traxxas, we have three of them in this house and they all hold up very well. Only broken parts are due to us doing stupid

    It seems to me that your a rookie and have no clue so I'll take that comment with a grain of salt. As for the shaft its an O.S. that is not even a year old.

    Haha i was just messin, you know like when something happens to a non-gm car, its always because its not a gm lol, but only because im a chevy (gm) guy. So basically its saying that i like redcaty more. Sure traxxas is a good brand, i dont like them personally, but it doesnt matter, cause thats my opinion haha.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    You need a failsafe before you run again. Thats a MUST HAVE piece. Spare parts are cheap enough to buy online instead of asking people in here. Better luck next time dude. As for a wider front bumper, I think you'll have to make your own. I haven't seen or heard of one for these buggys.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Ahhhh Randall Jennings hahahaha. Inside joke lol. But anyways i had a bumper on an old volcano that just used the four screws under the car that hold the diff case on. and it was really cool, till my gf was driving it and then drove it too far and supposedly couldnt control it, well it ran all the way across the park, through the street, and hit the curb on the other side at full speed. All that broke was that bumper. Snapped clean and i just took the screws out and removed what was left. Worked great.

    What about a RPM bumper for a Traxxas Rustler or Stampede? I know they're wide as hell and can br screwed on from underneath.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    engine fix since my tornado dosent have a spring to bring the throtle back to neutural (spelling) rig up a small spring to connect to the throtel linkage to run to the back where the wing is easy fix and you wont need to buy a failsafe (waste of money) there is even a video on youtube for it but i have been in contact with Cameron Redcat the owner and thats what he does even on his $2500 truck i put the failsafe in and all it did was make my tornado take off like a bullet also a failsafe wont do crap if you cant shut your motor off without pinching the gas line and the motor is full out so you do the math would you rather a car still be out of control with your motor full throtel or have a $5 spring to snap it back to neutral ??? lol i know my choice i will have some pics up soon
