    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I have recently bought a redcat racing tornado bb and after a month i got bored of the engine that came with it (vertex vx-18) and i would like to know which brand name engines would be a direct fit onto my r.c. Also i am really interested in this engine but not sure it fits,it is the same size(.18)and has the same carburetor type(rotary),the engine is called:O.S. .18CV-RX w/11J Rotary Carb .The description of the engine sais ''Good for all ready-to-run 1/10 scale cars & trucks that require a pull-start power plant. Especially suited for off-road trucks'', but does not say anything about 1/10 scale buggies.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Has anyone else had a problem with bending the drive shafts? I bent three out of four in two tanks of gas. Is there a better replacement?

    I almost forgot, I also lost the front dive shaft leading from the tranny to the front diff. and the coupler on the diff.. Am I being to hard on it or are these normal fixes?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    1. put a small piece of fuel tubing in the drive cups, just enough so there is a little play in them, too much play and when the chassis flexes the dogbones pop out or bend. that little fuel tubing should help out alot.

    2. paint them a flourescent orange so you have a better chance to find them if you loose them. Its no really normal to bend and loose dogbones, i lost one last week on one of my onroad kyosho's in the front so anything is possible. You need to make sure the grub screw in the holder is tight and put lock tite on the screw too, actually you should put loctite on all the screws that go into metal.. the blue thread locker, not red.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    LOL I like the idea about painting them orange. I walked up and down the street fro an hour searching for it. I ended up robbing one off an old smartech car. I used little o-rings instead of fuel tubing and so far so good. What about he bent drive shafts? Should I stick with the originals or go with the others?--#06047--upgrades-- I couldn't find the stock ones according to the numbers in the back of the manual.-06061-- What would cause them to bend? It's happening to my on road car too but it never sees any kind of jumping. Just the occasional "whoops".

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    i dont know why they would be bending, the only time i ever bent one was on my volcano when i kissed a curb and on my mutilator when my son hit a steel pole with it. I would suggest emailing dennis at clermontmotorsports.com and making sure you get the right dogbone, from what i understand, the numbers are all messed up and i would hate to guide you in the wrong direction. i dont have the upgraded shafts but i havent heard anything good about them from what people were saying on the forum.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    not really, I took it down the road and back to let it hit second gear and then went through my yard. No jumps but when i turned it did a hell of a barrel roll. i still seems drivable even with the bent shafts i just don't want the vibration to ruin something else. I just figured being solid aluminum that something else would have been bent in order to bend the shafts.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    thats what probably did it, the aluminum took the shock and passed it on down the line and your dogbones were binding and bent.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    would a hobby store have dogbones that would work for replacement or is that something I have to buy from redcat racing?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    they might, i needed a dogbone for my kyosho and an hpi rs4 fit, i just had to grind the pins down a little, take the bent one out and straighten them and see if the lhs has something that will fit. i bet there is something.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I have two sets of the 06047 and they dont fit the BB. They're too long. 06022 is a little too long as well. I just didnt run the ball screw in as far and loosened up the steering. As far as I know, redcat doesn't have them either. I' just patiently waiting...

    Nice to see you back ehroof... You're the man.

    EHROOF... EHROOF.. EHROOF is on fire.!!

    the #8 is good for a .21 or .28 but a little on the cool side for the .18 redcats, they like the a3.
