    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The short answer is, the rims and tires that fit the Associated B44 (4x4)will also fit the Tornado S30.. (The rears for a B4 will alsofit the rear, but ya need fronts for a B44) If you do a google search for Associated B44 rims and tires you should come up with pleny of options.. Sorry I dont know the exact diminsions of the wheels and tires though. Although they do use a 12mm hex on the rims.. Cheers!

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    could be any where from a unplugged servo, bad servo, loose link. no link. turn on the controller and reciever box. then pull your throttle. what does it do?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Hello Forum,

    I have a Tornado that I just cannot keep running! It will not idle low enough that the wheels do not turn and it very difficult to keep running at low speeds. I need help and guidance.

    Thanks
    Ed

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    is it broken in? how much fuel has been through it? is your filter clean? how do your fuel lines look? take off your clutch bell and have a look. it could be your spring broke or there is something hanging up.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I have a Tornado BB, It runs fine is broken in and everything but as soon as it shifts into 2nd gear it dies. I have adjusted the screw to make it shift sooner, later all in between. No matter where it just dies when it hits 2nd. It hasn't always done this used to shift fine and drive great, just recently started. Any ideas?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    whauburger,

    Try going back to factory settings on your needles. 2.5-3 turns out on the high and low speed needle and then tune from there. It really shouldnt be dieing because all its doing is dropping the engines rpm and going back up. So it might be a tuning issue.

    Thanks,

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Hey all,
    Well, I finally got my Tornado out and running. I'm pretty pleased with the engine. In the past I've had trouble keeping my trx .15 engine running, but this one ran really well without cutting out dying. Except when it was on it's back. Which happened quite a lot at the track I was running it on today. The car acted pretty much like it does in some of the videos I've seen of it. Bouncing around like crazy on a rough surface makes tougher to control than it should be. Going to fast and hit a rough spot - flip on it's back. Take off from a jump, rear compresses, kicks the rear up- on it's back. Any advice on how to adjust the stock setup to handle the bumps better? What sort of oil is in the shocks from the factory? It seems pretty light to me, and doesn't seem to offer much damping. Anybody had any success in getting these things to handle better?
    Thanks,
    Rob

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    try 45 wt oil. then set up the shock so when you drop it and lift it up the shocks will extend a bit more. just try soft spring settings

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    CUHRYTDUH,It seems like you've stripped a spur gear. This seems to happen a lot if the gear mesh isn't correct. Check the little hole on the bottom of the car with the gears showing and check and see if one is stripped. Next time you set the gear mesh, keep in mind the Tornado likes it as tight as possible without binding.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    i recomend to go electric if ur now coming to the hobby. also make sure u can readily get parts for it. but the clutch bell thing was with the older ones. the way to stop the dogbones from falling is to take a little o ring or piece of fuel tubing and put it in the cups. that stops them from being loose and falling out.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Check the setscrews in the drive cups. (where the center dog bones connect.)check both drive cups, on each center dog bone..

    Note: If your spur was stripped, you'll see that it's missing teeth. Make sure the spur and pinion/clutch gears have all their teeth and also make sure they're still meshed together properly..

    check all the gears and that everything is solid. thread lock anything that isn't tread locked. then break it in.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums and was wondering if I could get some questions answered about my Tornado. I'm currently in the process of breaking in the engine but can't complete due my throttle/brake servo not responding to pistol remote. When I start to turn everything on and fire my car up, everything works, then after about 3-5 minutes my T/B servo doesn't respond to remote, but my steering servo has no interference. Then, sometimes after my remote stops responding my car goes full throttle, and its making my break-in very hard to finish. I've changed the batteries in car/remote 3 times, not near any power lines or fences, and checked to make sure all wiring to the receiver is plugged in right and tight. Any answers will be greatly appreciated so I can found out whats wrong. Thanks for your time.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    You say that you changed the batteries in the remote but did you change them in the car. The symptom that you describing is what happens to me when my batteries are low. I never know which batteries are low so I change out all 12. Try 12 new batteries and you should be good. I'm only able to get about 8 tanks out of a set of batteries. Keep in mind that you should install a good fail safe because the one that is in that Rx/Tx is worthless. Once that fail safe kicks in (no response between remote and car) you have about a minute to get to the car and shut it off because after that it's full throttle. An aftermarket fail safe will still kick in and save your car and your engine.
