    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Thanks ehroof. I'm starting to melt them on my car. The bb has no problem. I'm probably starting to get to the point where I have the gearing to extreme but I'm not ready to give up yet. lol

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    in my honest opinion, put a single speed in your offroads, the gears will last much longer, you'll have more power all though out the rpm range.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I've got one in my bb pro, but like i said it has the os18cv-rx in it.

    I'm running the redcat tranny and the bigger hpi bell.. I was being awful hard on it, the only time it wasn't going full throttle was when I wrecked. I had a set of the yeah racing drift tires on it (almost hard plastic) and was able to go sideways for 20ft or more. It was fun but stopping fast was not an option. lol It just slides like it's on ice.

    Maybe a vented bell would help??? Do they make one? Who made the teflon shoes? There's no info.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I got an answer to my melted shoes. I guess it's a bad thing to make the car idle too fast. I just liked it because it had great reaction and I never really needed it to hold still, never died either. I'll try to idle it down and see if it gets rid of my problem or not. I'll let you know tomorrow. If he was right that's probably the same thing that happened to my hurricane.

    d3d5---I would just run it till it blows. No point in getting rid of something that works good. I have had three engines in mine so far. The stock infinity, a smartech 15cxp and the o.s.. Trust me you'll blow it up soon enough, just have some patience. lol This is something a parent would say so it kind of ages me but, there's no point in fixing what isn't broke.

    sure, just send it in, get the sh .18,if yours is good, wait until redcat gets them in. they should be here in a week or two.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I have the Tornado XL, its good n all, but I had it about a month, and I notice that it is getting pretty beat up, bent shock towers, broke the exhaust manifold (and redcat is out of stock!) and I bent a dog bone into a boomerang. Anyways, I need something that can take more beating, I looked at the BB Pro and looks like its pretty much all aluminum, so should hold up more. on the redcat side theres a BB to BB Pro kit for $194.66 right now. Will the kit work for my XL as well since the Tornados are close to the same? I notice the Tornado BB is $189.99 and the BB Pro is $259.99, difference is $70, so why is the kit $124.66 more than the difference?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Even solid aluminum you will bend stuff. i have the bb pro and all the upgraded stuff you can find and I still bend things constantly. The only way to stop bending stuff is if you can drive without wrecking and jumping. If your looking for something better go with the hurricane. It's just as fast as the stock bb pro and will take a lot more abuse.

    the bb and the xl have different suspensions, one is pillow ball, the other uses a arms. if you want something that will take a beating, get the hurricane, monsoon or the avalanche, they will take whatever you throw at them, expecially the avalanche

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    it depends on the car you have, there is a diff in the front and in the rear. The drive shaft connects to them, there are gears inside that turn the 2 driveshafts that turn the tires. Most 1/8 buggies and truggies have a center diff also, this allows for adjustment of how much the front tires pull compared to the rear tires. The 1/10's mostly have a transmission in the center with a spur gear that goes to the front and rear diffs and has egual power distibution.

    I hope this helps you understand, basically the diff is the front or rear end and in the 1/8 buggy's and truggy's its also the center (tranmission)

    you can but you have to be careful not to over rev the engine since there is no resistance its easily over revved and you can throw the connection rod(part inside engine that connects the piston to the crankshaft)

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Is it bad to run the engine from straight header? I couldnt resist running my tornado today and the header is broke pretty much in 1/2, so actually it not even running straight headers, but its loud. is that bad for the engine? hopefully redcat will get more headers in stock because my rc almost sounds like a dirtbike in my backyard.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    you really need the header, the exhaust from the muffler put pressure in the fuel tank to push the fuel to the carb, if its not right you could be running lean and blow then engine. here's a link for a header: http://www.clermontmotorsports.com/s...nnector/Detail
