Ehroof,

If I purchased the SH .18 engine from Redcat as an upgrade to my Tornado BB, would this be covered under the Redcat engine replacement program if it were damaged or broken during use? I could not find any clauses that state YAY or NAY. [&o] What is your take (being a Redcat dealer et al..) I may need to ask Darin at Redcat? Thank you in advance.

The only thing that goes in that are the bearings which just pull's out or push them out with a small screw driver and the drive cup which you remove the hex nut by just pulling it straight off there's nothing holding it in unless you have the nut on it that holds the wheel on, then you slide that little bar out of the hole and pull the drive cup straight out then you can take your bearings out from there.

You don't have to get the spring or the clutch bell they fixed that prob a while back.

You need the OS A3 glow plug it will come with one but after the engine breakin you will have to change it, did you get a starter kit yet or is it coming with one. And you can get parts and upgrades from here.

os a3 is a great plug, most good hobby shops carry os, so you shouldnt have a problem getting them.
