yeah, its a nice filter, and yes, most plugs are the lower the number, the hotter the plug.

Thanks bro I noticed that I was missing something i have the whole thing taken apart so I can clean it all up change the bearings re lube the diffs and all that stuff. Im just starting to put it all together and noticed that I was missing something in the back. Thanks for the picture its the bumber that I cant find.

Do you know what the sealed diffs are out of? The ones you can put oil in?

I figured it out. I meant some diffs have grease in them and some have oil in them. Mine have grease and I really dont like them. the whole bottom is open on the non sealed diff.

You ask about some pics of my hot dog Tsunami.........I've sold 2 like this using the Volcano shocks painted black so the blue wasn't so ugly and this truck is as sturdy as a Tsunami can get for anything you want to do. Its a terror on a baseball diamond and will drift as good as the lightning on the smooth hard dirt........pull the trans and go single speed and take off the back shocks for a rough track...........No engine right now because I'm trying to fit an exhaust on this on and another. Rear exhaust SH .12 .....1.48 hourse for the Tsunami and Team Infinity .27 rear exhaust going on the Volcano with 2.6 Anaconda tires if I ever get time

Hey guys,

I am new to the RC world. (I am sure you all are tired of hearing that)... Well I just bought my first Nitro and it is a tsunami. I was reading this thread and found the clutch bell stuff on the first page. I know this has been addressed several times already. but I need a clear answer. If I buy the parts listed on the first page is that all I need or do I need to get bearings and such.

I also read where you guys are putting rims and tires on them. Is there a way someone could put together a post with the links so I know I am getting the right stuff. I just don't want to get the parts and I need something else or I got the wrong part. lol know what I am saying...

Sorry for all the noob stuff

One more thing, I like the tsunami but I broke my lower arm in less then 24 hrs of getting it , my friend and I both got one at the same time and we were taking them up and down the road. Then we hit head on at about 25 hph each lol both truggys broke the lower arm but I got some better ones on the way hope they are here Wed.

Any way I have a ton more questions but I will wait on them lol, sorry no hobby shop where I am. so I read fourms and such to learn

Thanks
Mech

I think something is wrong if you have to re-fill it after 5 minutes

Thats a no on the fuel tank, 75cc is the standard for the 1/10 I think, and i haven't had time to check out mods on the Redcats for a while.........................if your doing a lot of WOT then thats about all your going to get is 10 minutes[]

I think it is too rich... After a run of a few tanks I have oil all over the place!! I try to lean it out a 1/8 turnon the hsn but it dies under a WOT and has no power.. Not sure what is wrong with it..

I need to get a problem resolved and say I'm sorry to eminentguitar I sent him the extended hubs stub axles etc and his dog bones don't fit........I haven't looked so I didn't know that the Volcano type differentials are used in the Tsunami now so they don't come with the 8029A or 8049 dog bones stock. When you put in the new hexes and stub axles you will need to get the 89.5 mm Dog bones instead of the 87 mm that come stock. Sorry if I caused any of you guys a problem I wasn't aware of the change
