    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    now for something related. i notice that the grub screws on the universal joints i guess u could say. or like the drive shaft driver things on the ends of the shaft for the trans. they strip out so easy. also the screws under the engine do to. it seems like they started using lock tight but the screws are cheap metal so u cant get them out, they just srtip. so i think im gonna take as many as i can out and replace them with traxxas screws or something idk

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread


    ORIGINAL: p3t3v3x53

    he ehroof this doesnt have much to do with tornado bb's but have u ever been to barnstormers racetrack? is it good? i have a tornado bb and i want to race it there but it looks like they only to 1/8 buggies. but they do t-maxx's too so i could race mine there to but id rather race the buggy

    no i was never there but i am sure you can run on off race days, most tracks run 1/8 buggys and truggys. bring them both and see what happens, they are probably closed for the winter, track anyways.

    replace with stainless screws, traxxas are basicall the same screws. use blue loctite to put them back together and you'll be ok

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    nitro engines like to run rich when its cold out. dont lean it to the point it bogg's or you will ruin the engine. temprature and humidity play a big role in tuning.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Ha that sucks man the same thing happend to me. Rims are hard to get they are always out of stock all i did was glue the rim back together and it worked just fine. Just normal super glue should work just fine and as far as taking the tire off just peel it off. It should not be too hard you might have to get a knif to peel it out. did you already get you some new rims?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Clermont Motorsports has the rims in stock. I did the same thing, well my dad did. He was going about 40 when he rolled my Tornado BB and cracked/shipped both left side rims. Super glue works very well, and I see no reason in having to buy new rims unless they are totally ruined. As for the tire, what I did to take mine of was squeezed it together and then ran a flat head screwdriver on the glued edge.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    ya the super glue works great lol. just patch the rim back together. I tried getting my at clearmont. when you click all of them it says 0 available. you might call him and he might have some. The redcat website is always out too. I wrecked my avalanche at work and tore the whole right side up. sucks and i finally got the parts and then i need a bearing i had to order now lol.

    i boil them in water for about 15 mintues, usually comes right off the rim, i use a medium ca glue to put the tires on.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    does boiling them really work? cause i jumped and landed on ice and the wheel rolled away and im not gonna glue it back together cause the spokes broke and it will just break again. but i have smartech tires and rims and i have been using them but i dont like the tires. and i want to put the redcat tires on the smartech rims but iv tried taking the tires off my t-maxx cause i wanted to buy the bowtie tires but i always rip the bead

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Man I'm really sorry to hear that, but I think they was thinking alone the lines of not a hard boil, just enough to start boiling, but we learn from our mistakes. hope it work's out on the next round.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    sorry bro, i do it all the time, you need a big pot of water, if you dont have a big one, just do 2 rims at a time, i have always done this and it works, you can dull the chrome finish sometimes but the tires always come right off. I have heard about putting them in the oven but i wouldnt do that. I have heard of using acetone also but have never tried that.

    just put some truggy tires on it and a truggy body, you may need to put a smaller tooth clutch bell but see once you get it going. i had a winner pro onroad, single speed, got rid of it a few months ago. they are 12mm hex so i would reccomend the tsunami wheels and tires, they will fit.
