    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    Just got my monsoon from clermont hobby and it has been way more then I expected it to be. The only issue I had was during break in when I could not get it to run more than 10 seconds at a time. Blistered my hands pullstarting it through two tank fulls and trying to see why it would not stay running when I found out the hole from the exhaust pipe that goes to the fuel line to pressurize the tank was never drilled out. I had no pressure to tank and had to keep priming it. Drilled out the hole myself and used a set screw on the end to only allow exhaust pressure to tank and it runs fine now. Redcat is supposed to be sending my lhs a new pipe for me no questions asked, Great service their. And one other small issue was when I changed the shock oil, one nut inside a shock had come loose but no big deal. Great truggy and a bargain.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    Ciao, i have a Searover by HSP (the taiwan factory that made the truggy for Smartech Redcats and Himoto ) it's the same of the Monsoon ,and i think that it's very strong.
    The truggy run and jump ,jump and run and never crash;
    moreover it has a nice price.
    My vote is 8/10
    If you want see a video panoramic of this truggy please go here:

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    Anyone have the aluminum upgraded arms on the monsoon yet. I was wondering if they are actually heavier than the stock arms and how do they hold up when you crash. I have been told that when you put aluminum arms on some cars that when you crash the arms will break other parts on the car becuase the aluminum arms do not give or flex any. Are they worth buying?

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    Is there a Two Speed for a Monsoon? I am looking to get a Monsoon but I think it would be too slow.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    It is slow right now, but once the new clutchbells come out, that will change. The 10 tooth is geared way to low.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    Anyone had any problems with the foam inside there stock tires. After about a month I noticed that 2 of my tires feel like half of the foam is missing inside. They are very soft in a couple of spots feeling like they are empty. I had this problem only once before on a ofna buggy I had but only one tire and when I took the tire off 3/4 of the foam was gone!, no particles or anything inside the tire. Ofna warranteed the tire for me but could not say what it was from. I called redcat about this and they said they could not warranty it but I would like to know if I am doing something wrong to cause this. I just spent 80 on proline wheels and crimefighter tires for my mantis and will probably by the same for my monsoon but do not want to mess those up either.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    There is a lot less trouble with aftermarket foam for inside the tires. But I have found the high speed on the street with pin type or knobby tires, they get so hot they sometimes melt the foam. There are other inherent problems but just don't buy cheap foam[]

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    The bad thing is I do not think I can replace just the foam becuase I read before that someone tried removing the tires from the same set of wheels that I got which come in chrome on the monsoon and it actually distorted the rim and messed up the chrome on them.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    That's a problem and if it were mine to take care of I would very carefully strip the tires off without hurting the rim and glue some new ones on with good foams in them.[&o]

    The vtx truggy has a 11 tooth that is the same as the monsoon. I have not found another yet. I hear people saying they modded theirs but nobody ever has any pics and if you do what they try and tell you like what you just tried with the motor mounts (I tried that too) it does not work. I spoke to nick at redcat yesterday and he said they should have some available in a couple of days that they are going to send out. I have been waiting for one too.

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    how much ground clearance (inches) does the monsoon have? I currently have a stampede and is good for where I drive it but, how much does the monsoon have? I would be driving on a rocky area.
