    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    1. did you break it in? and How did you break it in? and How many tanks?
    2. did you take the temp while you where running it?
    3. A hot engine stalling and being very hard to start but starts easily when its cooled off is a sign of a blown engine.
    4. Can you run it when it first starts for a minute or two then it stalls?
    5. When you go to start it right after it stalls, is the compression low, very easy to pull, if you hold the car up by the pullstart, will the car stay in the air, when cold or hot, especially warm?

    sorry to ask so many questions, i think you may have a blow engine, sorry to say, 2 turns on the high needle seems a little on the rich side for break in.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    1. yes i broke the engine in the way the book says to and i used 5 tanks
    2.no i dont have anything to use to take the temp well i have a laser thermometer at work that i should grab some time
    3. ......... i hope thats not the problem and i dont really see how i could have blown the engine..... but that could be....
    4 exactly
    5.well no i cant hold the car in the air by the pull start (the engine is warm), but sometimes i seem to get dead pulls like the rope slipped but the pull start is brand new the knot on my last one came out.



    and dont worry about all the questions i feel like im starting to get somewhere anyways. and when i broke it in i didnt really know about tuning it i just went by what the book that came with it said

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    i think i might make a video of what my car is doing so maybe someone that sees it might really know whats going on. it seems like all my problems came at the same time the pull start knot came out so i had to replace that and my servos went wacky (they run normal on reverse settings) but my car ran awesome until that pull start broke...

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    the easy pullstart is the one way bearing in the pullstart, you can usually clean it out with brake cleaner or carb cleaner. I am sorry bro but it sounds like a blow engine. An easy temp tester is the spit method, put some spit on your finger and wipe the head, if it sizzles and pops right away its too hot, if it evaporates slowly in like 5 seconds or so your ok. You can use water too, lol, just put a couple of drops on the head.

    one last question. If my engine is blown is it repairable at all? Or does it mean I need a new engine?

    you can install a new piston and sleeve

    http://redcatracing.com/itemdetail_part.asp?partno=r005

    or for 50% off you can just use the engine replacement program:

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    Ok so i was back on page 3 and 4 about the clutch spring and stuff. I was told it was the clutch spring. It was the clutch spring, it broke. I put a new one on and its doing the same thing. Im about to take it off and see whats wrong. I didnt completely tighten the engine down i just lined it up and put it on the stand and i pulled it and the tires spun. Not near as much as before but they still spin. Any suggestions if i mighta done somethin wrong?

    If you have a short tight track all you need to do is put in a single speed trans and go for it[8D]

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I should be receiving my Redcat Tsunami Ultrawide nextweek and was wondering which would be a better setup to use the clutch bell setup posted by ehroof or by Syclone354? Also Syclone354, did you end up making a thread on the upgrade, I couldn't find one.

    Thanks!

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    So is the tsunami pretty durable? I am so confused on what to get for my first nitro. $189 is very intising, but I don't want to be breaking parts all the time. Will this hold up well as long as you don't beat on it to bad?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    As long as its not tall grass because its a buggy and there is not much ground clearance under a buggy. But if the field grass is like anything around me it wont work well.

    how high are youtalking? If you plan on running in the grass, you would probably be better off with the avalanche.
