    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    Those parts will take some time to install, but as long as you keep up with which screw goes where either you or your son could do it. A trick that helps me is to print out a parts explosion of the vehicle and place the parts and screws I take out to install stuff on their designated areas on the explosion. It helps me keep track of things, and keep in mind that you will have to remove other stuff in order to reach the clutch bell.

    Alright thanks for the advice. This thing seems like it'd be fun to add to the collection. What kind of jumps can it take?

    the 13/18 will give ou much more low end but make sure you get the needle bearing and bushings for it too.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    I JUST BOUGHT A BUNCH OF 47T SPUR GEARS FOR MY XP , I WENT TO PUT THEM ON AND NOTICED THE CUTOUT FOR THE ONE WAY BEARING IS MUCH BIGGER. THE PART #S WERE CORRECT ON THE BAG AND THE GEARS WERE THE SAME SIZE. DID REDCAT CHANGE THESE. THE ONE WAY BEARING ON MY CAR APPEARS TO BE A 10MM AND THE CUTOUT ON THE NEW GEARS APPEARS TO BE 14MM. MY SUPPLIER INSISTS THESE ARE THE CORRECT PARTS. HELP!!!

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    ehroof, i am thinking about buying a aluminium exhaust pipe. Does it make a difference or does it just give it a cool sound.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread

    The car is not that responsive to the transmitter, I changed all the batteries so could the crystals be going bad. I also can't get it to run right like before, it either sounds like its flooding or not enough fuel. I tried adjusting but I have to adjust while I'm running it, longer I run it I have to make adjustments to be able to keep running.
