    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    it cant be done, i tried last year, topspeedtoys sent me the parts to convert it but it was just not possible, i still needed more parts to try to do it, its not worth it, your better off buying a car with the pivot ball suspension.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Is there a starter that can be used on the BB instead of a pull? If so, how does it assemble and what do I need

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMVE0&P=7 this replaces the pullstart, its a direct bolt on, take the pull start off and put this on, you will need a 7.2 volt battery with a charger for the battery in order to use it.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    another question. I let someone use while I was at work. I get home and the car wouldn't start. So I called Redcat to set all adjustments back to original(they were changed). Still wouldn't run, I pulled out the Idle screw found it was damaged and burred. Replaced with a HPI one. I got the car where it will start(hard to do) but will not stay running, when I apply the brake it stalls. Would it be a carb problem now and is ther a HPI carb I can use? I can't get it to adjust correctly and there is alot of fuel/oil that pours out of the muffler when I angle the car. Please help, I wanted to go run it today.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    sounds like throttel linkage adjustment, look at the carb opening when you hit the brake, if it closes the opening then the linkage needs to be adjusted, if not it can be the clutch spring, check out the clutch upgrade sticky. the tuned pipe holds oil so when you tip the car to the side it drips out. also try 2 1/2 out on the high needle and flush with the collar on the low needle.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    when you are ready to do it let me know an i will help you out and post pictures, dont change the clutch bell unless you change the clutch spring, it will go bad eventually and you will have to remove the engine again, it sounds like the spring is your problem.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    also I worked the throttle back and fourth with the reciever, it looks as it gets stuck, jumps in the same area everytime. like there is something catching them gets past that point and goes to brake. But rotory doesn't return open when in neutral

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    you have to raise the idle screw, when you apply the brake its closing the carb, turn it clockwise until its stops stalling when you hit the brake.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    it should be a little loose not tight, there are 2 screws that hold the pads, allen heads, one on each side of the pad
