    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    How do you put the clutchbell together ? I am having problems with shredding my 47 tooth spur gear on my tornado buggy; have gone through 5 of them regardless of how i set the gear mesh.
    I have an sh18 engine; will this work for mine?
    If so can you send me some pics on how this is done.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    alright guys now im having tuning trouble. i had my car tuned for about 60 degrees farenheit(outside temp) and now that its 80 degrees it runs terrible. if i do a high speed run then turn round and start to do another it doesnt have enough power to make it move. ive got the hsp at 3 turns out and the low speed flush cuz that seems to be what it used to like. ive changed the plug and fixed the fuel tank leak. also when i try starting it, it will run for a second and then shut off, so i keep trying and i gotta sit and pul for 15 minutes. its starting to get old and the guy that wants to trade is taking forever to reply.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    hello, all. Got a Tornado BB, broke it in according to manual and it ran beauty right from first pull. Fourth tank was just idling around, running at 140 degrees,decided to open it just a bit. It shifted in 2nd and I backed out of it, di this a couple times. Third time or so I noticed a clicking sound when I was slowing down. Sped it up again and no shift... but it did click when slowing down. Insepected the Centrifugal clutch and noticed the arm moved outward, half the travel it should with no resistance. I tried turning allen in to tighten spring but it still had no resistance. Now I have had this a couple hours and I'm taking the transmission out to get a closer look at the clutch . It seems the spring is fine but the ball will not go all the way to the arm... Is this something that can be fixed? should I be looking at why the ball doesn't make contact or do I need a new clutch, already? Any helps really appreciated, thanks

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    your grub screw most likely came out. did it seem like it accelerated slower? if so then you will need a new two speed clutch

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    No the grub screws were both there, actually looks like the bottom of shifting lever where balls rubs against got deformed, or at least doesn't look perfect. Does anyone know is the ball supposed totravel all the way through the clutch housing, eg: if shifting arm is out of housing will the ball go all the way through the channel? or does it stop short of falling out? I wouldn't mind replacing it if I got more then 100 feet driving, was kind of hoping a baddecision would be cause of my first replacment parts.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    i have no clue about that ball thing, i didnt think there was a ball in the 2 speed clutch. is it what the arm pushes on when its lifted up?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    It is not shifting because your stuck in second gear. Check this tread out bro. This one is from way back. Read post # 20 about half way down [link]http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_4207842/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm[/link]
    You will have to take it out and clean it.. This is an age old problem with the 2 speed clutch. The little thing takes a beating when it shifts. I went though 3 of them before I got a good one. Just my 2 cents.
    One more thing make sure the steel pin is there in the spur gear.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    You broke your spring That goes around your clutch. Take your clutch bell off and you will see your spring has broken. Try replacing with this one.[link]http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0095p?FVSEARCH=4146x&FVPROFIL=++&search3=Go[/link] You only use the spring. Good luck bro.

    Check this Thread out and look into buying the Hpi A885 clutch shoe.Clutch spring

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    thanks for the ideas but thinking its not dirt, thisbuggy is brand new, only driven 200 feet on clean pavement at 1/4 to half throttle, the clutch was shiney in my hand. I think the arm is damaged where the ball makes contact but can't take arm out without destroying clutch, so guess I'll order one, then maybe destroy this and see if right, thanks again.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Any ideas on how to keep the gas tank from letting air into the lines? When my tank gets below about 1/2 tank, and I hit some little bumps, my car gets a lot of air in the lines and chokes out. Was thinking of some rubber grommets at the bottom where it mounts to the chassis. Not sure yet.
    I didn\'\'t do it, or at least I don\'\'t remember doing it...

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Put it back to factory specs and tune from there. Its probably tuning. If you have a crack in your tank then you wont be able to go high rpms because the engine cant suck fuel to it anymore, it needs pressure from the exhaust.

    check your air lines for leaks first and if it aint that just spend the 5 bucks and get a new tank instead of replaceing the rubber and check for cracks in the tank
