    RE: Redcat Racing Lightning STR UPDATE!!

    mendota is full of drugs anyways my lightning is working . A friend came over and worked on it. He never worked on a nitro car before and he got it working great. He adjested the links and tuned up my motor . Little sucker flys now. He only flyies rc planes but wow he adjested my car less then an hour including breaks and motor. I think this is a very hard car to drive though. Oh anybody there is one thing, i cant hear my car when it shift gears, cant hear it, is that normal?

    RE: Redcat Racing Lightning STR UPDATE!!

    you should be able to hear a change in the rpm's of the motor when shifting. if you can get a video with sound and get it from start to end and we or i should be able to tell you if its shifting or not.

    you may be running it too rich, try leaning the high speed needle like an 1/8 to 1/4 turn and see if that helps

    If your ever up the road towards Modesto stop in and say Hi / sounds like your not hitting 2nd, those little buggers like the motor tuned real good to hit it. Listen to ehroof or have your friend take the tips and apply them to the car, you will be suprised................good luck[:-]

    modesto pretty far lol. Is there a car club there . Well I just ran my car keeps on stopping, I ran it rich then lean it a bit. But car
    is going pretty fast but yet i don't hear it shift. Maybe mine is a 1 speed? LOL funny thing a cop pulled over and didn't say anything
    damn buger is damn loud even if i replaced the muffler. I am using the muffler from helipro black hawk helicopter muffler. INstead that plastic muffs. if it doesnt shift, is it wrong to run it like that?

    RE: Redcat Racing Lightning STR UPDATE!!

    no but you can try to spray the shifter with wd40 and adjust the grub shifting screw on it, one is for holding the shifter on and the other is for adjusting shifting times, its in front of the 2 spur gears, silver, you will gave to turnd the tires to see it.

    RE: Redcat Racing Lightning STR UPDATE!!

    i do have some some 3 in one multi purpose oil, lubricates, cleans and prevents rust. its a 8 oz can, would this works? I think it is

    RE: Redcat Racing Lightning STR UPDATE!!

    Hello guys, I am new to this hobby and I have a lightning from redcat. It doesn't shift gears, yet its a bit fast. Some guy said
    it is faster then my other car which its a traxxas rustler. Now I busted two teeth on the big gear of throttle number 6 on the manual which is on 15th page under sleeve pipe of throttle. Can anybody help me to get a new one from different brand and why this happens and how
    to fix the tranny to shift on second.

    thanks
