    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    lol, what did you do for the spring to fly out, you have to hold that little wheel in so it doesnt fly out with the spring.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    yeah i held the wheel thing but nobody told me i had to take the lug nut looking thing that goes in the center out of the old one and fit it in the new one, so i thought i had the wrong one for a few hours trying to fit it on with out the thing on it. and then after countless hours of trying to stick on there i took it off of the engine and *BOING!* it flew off and bounce of the walls in a big ball of tangled coil. redcat didnt email me back about the warrenty yet though. do u know if i can get my money back or get a free new one

    Hey guys, newbe here and wondering what after market air filter fits the vx .18? Also, I believe my engine is leaking fuel. There is fuel around the bottom of the carb. and under the cooling head, is there anything I can do without replacing parts?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Hey guys, I need some help here. After a few laps around the track, my tornado bb stopped moving forward. When I give it more gas, it just revs louder. When I shut down my engine, I noticed that the car can be pushed forward, but when I try pulling it backwards, it seems to be locked up. Is my clutch broken? What are the parts I need to replace?

    I would say check the one-way bearing in the tranny. My buddy had the same problem last weekend. His was just dirty to start with later on the bearing started to spin freely in the gear.

    Integy makes air filters for almost every size engine. As far as the leaks go try to go through and tighten everything up and check the O-ring on the carb. I've noticed some engines just seem to leak a little from the front bearing too. Don't really know if there is a purpose for it but it might be to lube that bearing.
