    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    Thanks for those links, I just got my replacement clutch bell this week but I'll order these next. These look pretty durable too. My clutch bell only lasted about half a gallon, is that normal or horrible? The teeth split off the bell so I ended up with the two gears and a short piece of pipe. I also have a smartech speedy tiger and that clutch bell has lasted a while, almost two gallons.

    Question: On the tsunami, or any other buggys or trucks for that matter, do we need to have that piece inside the muffler with the holes on it? I took it off cause it felt like it was restricting flow and now the cars fly! I'd say at least 25% increase in speed. I am having to run a little rich on the low speed needle though to keep'er cool. I still have it if I should put it back. Thanks.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I have a customer that blew the spur gears from the bad clutch bell I ordered replacement gears for him and sent them out.
    He says they don't fit. here is the part # from redcats site 06032 any one else had this problem. This is turning into a real disaster for
    me. He bought 3 trucks and all have had problems becacuse of the clutch bell. Now I have to buy replacement parts from tower
    to fix the clutch bells and the parts I sent him from redcat don't fit. Help Please.

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I'm confused I thought there was only one spur gear that drives the rear axel. The other gear you list I thought was an option to change the gear ratios to increase top end speed?
    Help please

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    Heres a Tsunami Truggy conversion. I ordered the front and rear shock towers for the tornado, as well as the wing mount and parts. Now the body sits down lower on frame and truck looks nice. I also went out and bought a pro-line crowd pleazer body today painted it up and the truck looks sweet. Here are some pics:

    I bent a dogbone today so thats why its a 2wd setup in the pics, still ran great.

    Yes, this is a Redcat Tsunami Truggy

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I also adjusted the screw on the tranny to stay in 1st gear, truck flies even on just 1 gear. I had it at the track yesterday and it did about 10 cartwheels at about 30mph at the end of the straight away, flipped over a two foot wood wall and landed on all 4, unscaved. I've read some posts that redcat or himoto cars are cheep and break a lot and I was very carefull with the truck when I first got it. After about two months I've only spent about $6 on broken parts and jump and flip it all the time. These things last. Any Tsunami owners out there also have hurricanes or Torpedas, can they also take the beating?

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    I ordered a volcano front bumper and added it to my tsunami. hopefully it will help it live a little better (maybe not quite so many bent shock rods). I also obviously painted my axles bright yellow!

    RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

    Copied from my other post, good info

    Well, between our 4 tsunamis we have now, we have broken at least 3 or 4 of the rear drive shafts! They sheer right off on one end or the other right at the ball. I found that the "local" (30 min drive) Hobbietown USA carries a HPI 6x57mm dogbone part number A553 and they fit right in perfect. These hpi shafts look much heavier duty at the ball, and also feel like they weigh considerably more. They also cost $1.50 more a pair than the redcat ones from Clermont, but after comparison I think they will be worth the money.
