    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Those are all 4 wheel drive and shouldn't have different tires from front to back. The buggy at the 1/10 model has a narrow tire in the front but everything about the tire is exactly the same as the back[:-] The Trucks you see with the rib tire on the front are ST's (stadium truck) and the front tires only guide it. Actually if your into challenge for driving you should get an ST[&o]

    ehroof---I have a different car question for you. I remember earlier on you said you had a jato also, right? I finally took mine out and got it broke in and ready to go. After that I just wanted to see how it was to drive and honestly I think it sucks. It's fast as hell but almost uncontrollable. Needless to say I wrecked it, of course, and took out the whole front right side. Lower a arm, tie rods and the steering stuff. My question is are the aluminum parts worth it on those since the front ends are so weak or should I stick with the plastic? Maybe the aluminum would help hold it on the ground more? Any advice to hold it to the ground better? It seems to just want to either pull the wheelie or when I hit the brakes it will start spinning and go into an uncontrollable wipe out.

    You need to get the flat pack rechargable batter and put it in the middle and get that battery off the back bumper for beginners. second you need to get the rpm replacement arms, they are guaranteed for life, get the front bumper too, the anocanda's are not so great, even on road, i put the gladiator pro line on the rear and some 2.2 rims. this will make it handle better off road for sure otherwise the rear end is all over the place. Richen the mixture a little and it will calm the engine down, you can also put some lead fishing weights on the front bumper.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Try changing the glow plug and make sure the igniter is charged. If you still get nothing try and turn the engine over by turning the flywheel. If there's no resistance the engine is shot. I went through the same thing in like a quart of gas. The o.s. .18cv-rx is a great replacement though. No problems yet.

    Thanks again for the help. I have some parts on the way. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'll have to look into the tires. The ones on it do not want to stay on the rims for anything. i glued the crap out of them but they still rip free in a couple tanks of gas.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    yes i have changed the glow plugs and agusted my needels to a point were the engine should run poorly... and i have a fully charged igniter that i am using.
    I have turned the flyweel many times to see if there is any change but it is still the way it should be.(pumping the piston proprely). I also took my engine appart to try to find a probleme but no such luck.
    Help me?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Is it getting fuel pressure? Do you prime it? There's still good resistance on the flywheel? Check the plug and igniter out of the car. Make sure the carb is open a little (1mm-1.5mm) Maybe put a little fuel into the carb to see if that helps. I couldn't figure mine out for a while. It acted like it wanted to start and would for about a half a second when I flooded it but that's when my engine was shot. The large amount of fuel I would dump down the carb would create a half @$$ seal and it would fire a few times then die. Do you have a roto starter? They are nice when you need to keep turning the engine over to try to make it fire. If you still can't get it started maybe ehroof might know more. I'm still new I just bought a ton of these cause I had the money to waste.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

I really wanna gte this thing started cause i paid enough money for it and my friend has an electric one and i have to show him up... It will run in idle ONLY with the igniter on. The dies about 30 seconds later and there is nothing i can do about that. The ignitor and glow plug are both fine and i have tried multiple plugs too...

    No. It should only spin when engaged by the clutch shoes. If it engages as soon as the engine is running, the clutch spring has failed in some fashion.

    In answer to your second question, I would order the replacement spur gear along with several other commonly failing or necessary replacement items such as the clutch spring, shocks, lower A arms, C-hubs, hex screws for the engine mounts (unless you've already Locktited them), hex screws for the muffler header (again unless you've LockTited them), dog bones, and probably a couple of other things I've forgotten.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    alright, yea as soon as i start it, it spins, which keeps the wheels spinning no matter what i do unless i shut it off.. i got extra lower arms for front and rear, and the hex screws for the engine were prolly not locktite in the beginning thats why im having these problems, so ill get some locktite (is that a walmart item or no) and locktite them. so, my order will be the large spur, and the cluth, i didnt think it was supposed to spin, but it does.. thanks

    Remember to get Blue LockTite, not Red. Blue can be cracked loose. Red is more or less permanent. It should be commonly available at any hardware store or hardware aisle. If your car has a two-speed tranny, I'd also get the little clutch that handles shifting. It seems to be another wearing part that eventually requires replacement.

    Your servos will eventually die so start thinking about suitable replacements. Either vibration or nitro (or both) attacked the mounting arms of my throttle servo and they eventually cracked off.

    Dog bones? You've got spares of those already? You'll eventually bend one, especially in the front. Also get the pins that hold the lower A arms to the differential assembly. Whack the front end hard enough and you'll bend those too.

    Let's see, what else came loose on mine. Oh yes, LockTite the drive cups for the dogbones that run from the tranny.

    flywheel's are kinda a pain in the butt. The easiest way to get it off is to grab the flywheel with a big set of pliers so you can loosen the nut without turning the engine over. Once the nut is loose you should be able to just pull it off. If it doesn't come right off use a small flat tip screwdriver to pry it from behind.
