    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Cool thanks.

    Nice picture mate, I haven't been able to find a picture of a close up of the shockwave, thanks

    Edit>

    So I'm getting the shockwave for my birthday and before I even run it I'm going to do the mods...

    Car:
    TORNADO XL - $99.99 -------------- http://www.redcatracing.com/itemdeta...partno=TORNADO
    Nitro Starter Kit And RC Tool Set - $19.99 -------------- http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/s...ter-Kit/Detail
    Traxxas Top Fuel 20% Quart - $8.99 -------------- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXJM38&P=ML

    Upgrades(Needed):
    Hpi 17 Tooth Vented Clutchbell - $14.99 -------------- http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/s...-vented/Detail
    Traxxas Clutch Shoes/Spring T-Maxx - $7.39 -------------- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=++&search3=Go

    Extras:
    Associated Muffler RPM Tuned Side Exhaust - $18.39 -------------- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBMH0&P=7
    HPI Aluminum Exhaust Header Nitro 3 - $12.99 -------------- http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXBTB5&P=ML

    So all of that will get me running good for under $200 I guess. I could probably talk them into getting me the car,starter kit and fuel for me. Then I would enough money for the the clutchbell and spring at that time, then once I get paid for painting a garage I could get the pipe and anything else. Is anything else needed?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    you should be good with that bro, you dont really need the clutch bell and spring, it should come with a steel one and better spring and shoes.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I ran into the first problem w/ my Tornado today. The throttle servo isn't working correctly...the servo only opens the carb ~1/2 of the way and sometimes gets stuck there. When applying the brake the servo makes a loud grinding/ticking noise and doesn't move the rod at all.

    When I broke the car in I noticed that the spring on the servo rod was sort of warped, but the servo worked fine. I tried adjusting the grub screw at the end of the spring, but that made things worse. Is the spring the problem, or do I have a bad servo? And what parts would be available at the LHS?

    I can post pics if it will narrow the problem down.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    take the stock steering servo and move it to the throttal and use this for steering

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXDWF8&P=RF

    there are cheaper options but this one works great. btw the stockers are crap and anything futaba or hitech is an improvement.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Yes sounds like the servo went away. Mine actually came apart while installing on the new aluminum upper plate.. So I replaced it with a Hi tec servo I had laying around. Works good.

    I took the servo apart today and a few of the gears had missing or chewed up teeth, but what could have caused this within 10 tanks of fuel, including break-in?

    Also, would the LHS have a replacement spring or something comparable for the throttle? I can't seem to find a replacement on Redcat's site. Thanks guys.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    It is not a redcat because the redcats only have 1 a-arm on each side and the tank is different. Here are some pictures of a redcat. It is all stock except for the clutch bell, exahust pipe and [&:]tires.
