put an sh .18 or os cvrx in it, maybe a bigger clutch bell like an 18 tooth hpi, you cant go bigger than that, there's no room.

usually its the other way around, torque pipes are shorter than rpm pipes, they are longer. i dont think moving the pipe away from the header will make any real difference, changing the pipe will.

I HAVE A HIMOTO ELDORDA. IT IS JUST LIKE A REDCAT VOLCANO. I JUST PUT ALL ALUMINUM TIE RODS IN FRONT AND REAR.THE WHEELS ARE STRIGHT BUT WHEN I USE THE REMOTE CONTROLL TO TURN THE WHEELS IT WILL GO ALL THE WAY TO ONE SIDE BUT NOT THE OTHER AND WHEN I LET GO OF THE REMOTE THE WHEELS WILL NOT CENTER. HOW DO I ADJUST THE SERVO LINKAGE I KNOW I NEED TO ADJUST THE TIE RODS BUT I NEED THE WHEELS TO CENTER FIRST I THINK. AND HOW THE HECK DO I GET THIS THING TO DO WHEELIES

I can read without the caps a lot better.......................find a way to support your volcano of the ground while you center the steering.......first turn on your truck RX and then turn on your TX while the truck is off the ground...........next there is a dial on your TX (transmitter) probably a round knob........It will turn all the way to the left and then all the way to the right.........you want this knob right in the middle between full left and full right..........that will have centered your servo......Now that thats done look at your tires and see if there straight. If there not then unscrew the servo horn and pull it off (the arm on the servo) stand back and straighten your tires then very carefully reinstall your horn (servo arm) while the wheels remain straight........reinstall the screw and tighten and you have it..........setting your toe in and camber is something else.........you will have to drive your Volcano and use the knob to make the truck travel in a straight line that way when you let off the wheel it will straighten back up[&o]don't forget to turn everything off when your done[8D]

Doing wheelies your on your own

most all 1/10 bodies will fit the Volcano you just have to check real close as to what you buying[:-]

put a smaller clutch bell in it, like a 12 tooth that should give you much more torque.

it wont work, the redcat ones are too small, you need to get 14mm hex's. epoxy wont hold them in place. i am not even sure if the traxxas 14mm hex's will work, i think the cut out for the pin is too deep.

You mean make them out of metal or something. If so there are some places on the net that you can buy them, I've made a few sets of rims on my metal lathe, but let me tell you something, the metal rims are WAY HIGH dollar. Your better off just finding some 2.8 rims on the net.

Like these are 2.8 rims and tires.
