Default Redcat volcano size comparison

I am thinking about getting either a monsoon or a volcano and upgrade the engine. Please post pictures of the volcano or the volcano next to another car so I can see a size comparison of how big the volcano is.

Thanks.

I you can. Thanks. While your doing that, could you compare the avalanche to the TMAXX? BTW, is the monsoon and avalanche about the same size?

I think they are on the same chassis but the avalanche has raised body mounts, different (maybe hurricane) arms and added wheel spacers for the larger wheels. At least that is what it looks like to me.

Forget snapping pics. You should be breaking in the avalanche.

I have never done heat cycling to any of my motors but I did it to a vx.18 motor today. So far everything is good.

How would the T-Maxx compare to the Volcano SV in terms of quality and performance and how things hold up to bashing? Is the volcano smaller than a stampede?

With a 2 speed and OS .18 CV-R could I get 50 MPH? How would that engine hold up?

A t maxx is a pretty good truck. The t max is going to be bigger than a volcano but the volcano will be bigger than a stampede. The t mass im sure will easily beat the volcano. Depending if you have teh 3.3 or 2.5 t maxx. A t maxx can hold up to some good bashing. Not sure about the volcano. If the volcano is anything like the tsunami it will hold up very well.

i have never broken a part on my volcano in 2 years, and i have done some pretty good jumping. its extreemly durable. in all honestly the tmaxx and volcano are pretty close to speed, the tmaxx has the overall advatage since its a 2 speed but i would say they are pretty even.

Yup. It's been raining all day here too (I asume it should being as we don't live that far apart) So you say the volcano is bigger than the Stampede. I was just looking at the demensons of the volcano and it looks smaller than a stampede. How is ground clearance on a volcano? Is it adjustable and how high could it go?

Thanks everyone and especially ehroof for the pictures.

I realize that the avalanche is huge. But, just looking at those pictures, I am wondering if the volcano is not as wide as the stampede? And I just can't stop thinking that the volcano is small from that picture.

its really not that small, the avalanche is huge bro, just plain huge, lol. the tmaxx is taller but not that much longer or wider. its hard to tell in the picture, i will take some better pictures over the weekend. the tmaxx has bigger tires and that makes it look big, the volcano has decent clearance, its really a good truck, i am very happy with it and it takes a good beating. the rustler and stampede are the same width and i would say the volcano is wider.
