    In that case put the stock motor back in your truggy I just think you got scared the past two weeks with some fast guys there so you think you need a faster motor I see that HOME track advantage getting a little smaller! LOL

    RE: Redcats Monsoon Thread

    Also I spoke to benny today and he said you guys were messing with him about getting rid of his truck. I let him drive my monsoon with the new motor and big bore shocks and he is now going to buy a Monsoon!!! Just kidding. He did like it though the way I have it. Was real surprised.

    He said both of you were doing good. Said you guys ran like 2 tanks through running each other and he did not have to go out and flip. Heard billy wants to get rid of his buggy real cheap too?

    RE: Initial Impressions of MONSOON truggy.


    ORIGINAL: tommie!

    Do a search on engine break in and tuning a engine after break in. Take your time and be patient and methodical...also learn about nitro fuel and its properties and nitro engine care.

    Also get in the habit of checking for screws or nuts and bolts backing out due to vibration. If you are just starting out in rc, I would recommend driving around on ashphalt for the first bit until you get used to the car and if you ever have screws fall out, you have a better chance of retrieving it!

    Screws that screw into metal should have loctite applied to CLEAN threads and screws that screw into plastic can use a little super glue. Loctite is not to be used on plastic as it reacts with the plastic and makes it brittle.

    Its the basics really that should be covered by the hobbyist so there are no hidden surprises.


    No blue loctight on plastic? Sounds like everyone RC manual better have a reprint they all recommend loctight on many metal screws to plastic parts..
    There\'s a right way and wrong way to do everything and the wrong way is trying to make everybody else do it the right way

    RE: Initial Impressions of MONSOON truggy.

    Well, just upgraded my brakes on my monsoon from 2 disc brakes to 4 disc brakes. Just like the lot more expensive truggies!! Everything just bolted right up 100%. All you need is the disc brake assembly from redcat, PART #81028. It comes with 4 rotors and 8 brake pads. All you have to get extra are 4 longer bolts that hold down the assembly to the diff, about a 1/4" longer. Looks awesome don't you think[8D]

    I wonder why they do not come from the factory this way. They are already set up for it.

    Some do come different for some reason. I think some might be a batch sent out before a small upgrade, not sure. I do know some have only 3 body post holes, 2 in front and one in back and on those monsoons they are plastic. On others like mine for example had 4 body post holes and aluminum thicker posts. Nothing major, shock towers are the same, just the mounts are bolted to them and are aluminum. Try contacting clermont hobby to see if he can get you the parts. [link]http://www.clermontmotorsports.com[/link] He is pretty good about getting parts.
