    Who all has upgraded to the 4146x traxxas clutch spring? Do you notice the diference in rpm does it launch harder?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    i have it but i never used the stock one, but it does take an extra milisecond to take off, it has more stall, but it just shoots ya off. its cool.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    so you could probably set up the ide a bit too? Higher stall speed = more power on the launch. But is this the ticket?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    i dont know about the idel, you could try, it really just depends on if your car sounds good when in idel and if it doesn't move. really all the traxas one does is give yo ua higher stall, so you'll need more rpm, then when it reaches the appropriate rpm, your car will just shoot of. it does have more hesitation so it wont be as immediate, but it will give you faster acceleration. you can only notice the higher stall difference when you try taking off at really low throttle, if you floor it, it will go.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I was just meening if the stall speed is higher you could set up the idle to just below the engagement rpm and then the hesitation should be gone right?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    New question. Whats the difference between a tornado bb & tornado xp? I found on ebay a xp for sale from jemsmarketing for 145 it says it has a .18 engine in it, and I just ordered a bb for 125 But I thought the bb ment big block eg the .18 engine instead of the .15?

    I'm new to the RC world. Anyway, will the above work on a Tornado BB(thinking of buying one)? Also, do you need a starter kit, glow plug? Like I said I'm new and just need the info to help decide what I need to replace at initial and what to buy.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    yea get the starter kit. but i would say not to get the 2sp tornado, get the xl its not as fast but you will have alot less problems with it.
    if you noticed the high end rc buggys are 1 sp and the xp, like i have and the bb are two sp. its just to complex for all the dirt and sand, jumps, crashes and such.

    i just run mine in the parking lot now, every time that thing gets dirty somthing stops working.

    someone told me this before i got mine and i wish i would have.

    the bb comes with a 2 speed and a .18 engine, the lx comes with a single speed and a .16. i would suggest the bb since it has the pivot ball suspenstion, just upgrade the clutch bell and the clutch spring and you should be fine. i have 2 of the xp's and i make one a single speed and kept the other a 2 speed. The biggest problems with the these are the clutch bells and springs, once you change them you are fine.
