more then likely the clutch spring broke. It its just the end you can easily put a new bend on it. I did it with mine and it lasted for a while before I had to do it again. After the second time it broke I replaced it. You'll have to pull the cb to find out for sure though.

ok i think i found the click and hang up it is coming from the brake. the metal disk flops around i can move it back n forth im not sure if this is normal i think it should be tight on the drive shaft.

ok nevermind nothing wrong with the brakes its defanetly the rear drive shaft. hmm how do i xplain it. if you look at the drive shaft coupling on the transmision side the pins that go into the slots to stop the shaft from spinning in the coupling are warn and one of the pins actually slips out of the slot and drops inside the coupling the pin on the other side stays in place im not sure on what part should changed either way it looks like a ***** to change i can get the set screw loose on the front drive shaft ill try some pb blaster on it anyways i can probaly still drive it till it breaks completly while the replacment parts are on the way it doesnt slip during driving i also noticed that the pins made groves on the inside of the coupling grove im sure this is normal wear and tear but ive only had the truck for like a month now

Yeah man thats normal wear and tear they dont last long and when you try to get the set screws out try to heat them up a bit thay have lock tite on them and heat is what is used to break it free. I put the hpi mt2 drive cups on my tsunami because I was tired of them wearing out all the time. My brake disk does the same thing man sometimes it hangs up.

You can also try adding an o-ring to the drive cup to take up some of the play in the dogbone

got a new air filter setup today from my lhs. its made by ofna its mutch larger not sure if it adds more power but it makes me happy looking at it also picked up some e-clips body clips and a quart of fuel. my lhs doesnt sell 20% by the gallon anymore only 33% and im sure 33% wouldnt be good for my tsunami.

retro you need to post some pictures with the new filter.
You could run the 33% but you might have to go to a cooler plug, it might cause the engine to run too hot.

hey just wondering is it safe with the single speed redcat tranny to just run power to the rear wheels (2wd) by droping out the front shafts????? because iv bin breaking my engine in with only 2wd cos im waiting for a drive shaft . plus i was thinking any way 2wd will take a lil more load of the drive train because is will wheel spin more like it does and not hook up and break stuff .

the hpi racing Yoky geo-landers are a great tyre there only 2.2 but are super soft and sticky , i run them on the rear . but i think there $15 or so a pair so that only leaves $10 for rims .

uhoo I made mine 2wd and it was killer hard to controle and the rear diff didnt like it very much and your just going to add 2 times as much strain to the powertrain. Even if its spinning its still hard on things
