    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    you can get lead weights with self sticking tape on one side from auto parts stores. the contest is here, on top of the redcat forum, its a sticky, and only wheelie with the tsunami is off a jump, its a single speed and whelies easier now off the jump with the single speed but besides that, its all stock.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    The Jato has tons of power in such a small package. The tsunami weighs way more. Another thing that hurts the tsunami is the rotary carb. rotary is not as responsive as a slide carb. If you could put the traxxas 3.3 in the tsunami I bet it would wheelie for a few seconds before it totally tears up teh drivetrain.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    Dont get me wrong. The os cvr is a great engine. Plenty of power but not as quick as a slide carb os engine like the os 18tm or cvrx. If you look at your carb on teh stock vx engine thats a rotary carb.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I forgot the cvrx is available with the 11j carb. So both the sh and os engines you have are rotary carbs. The cvrx is still a great engine.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I think you will be fine. ehroof runs a cvr on his redcats with no problems. I have not heard of any diff problems. I have seen drive shafts break. I installed a Peak Racing Diablo .15 on my sons tsunami and the first run out it snapped the rear drive shaft in half.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    lol, good motorsaver aif filter, 30% nitro (be careful of temps, you may need a different plug), and a good header and tuned pipe will bring it to life.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    Wait you said the last thing you need is more power that will tear up the drivetrain now you want more power. If you dont want constant problems just keep the os stock. The tsunami cant handle more power than the cvrx. My Diablo is a .15 size engine but it has alot more power than the vx .18. I dont think it has more power than the os engine but it does have higher rpm's over the os. Normally the diablo goes for just under $200.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I think it will take more power than the os has stock it seems to have less power than the sh 18 I took out of it maybe i have to tune it better.


    Ehroof is there a header and pipe that I can get from my lhs that would work? Or do I have to get the redcat parts?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    hpi rs4 header or tmaxx header will work. the os has more power than the sh for sure, the sh is a nice engine but the os has more power.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I really liked the sh it ripped great. I guess I have to tinker with the os a bit to get it to run better. Its hard to start.

    Ehroof Is there a better glo plug starter than the one that you get with the starter kit? Whats the best plug to run in the os?
