    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    you can boil them in water for 15 minutes or so, you can bake them in the oven at 300degrees for 15 minutes or so, you can use acetone and put it aound the edge of the rim to break the bond of the tires and rim or you can use a knife and carefully cut then loose, i personally prefer the boiling method.

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    when you hold it up in the air does it turn easily, does it turn when driving it? if so, most likely the servo saver is too loose

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    it does, its just when its still, and i ahve the servo saver as tight as possible, also i switch the side of the saver cuz it kept getting caught and destroying servos, would that have anything to do with it?

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    make sure its set loose enough so it absorbs the shocks from driving it

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    if you set the servo saver too tight it wont absorb the shock of the tires hitting something. you have to keep is set a little loose so it will give instead of the servo giving and breaking or stripping the servo gears.

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    another problem im having is that the pull start seems to only catch once, every once in a while it catchs more and starts, is that the one way bearing going or something i can fix inside the starter

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    sounds like the one way bearing, what fuel are you using, if there is too much oil it can cause it to slip, the sh engine has the one way on the inside of the backplate, you can take it out, clean it with carb cleaner, scuff up the shaft it goes on with steel wool and usually this will let you get some more time out of it. just be careful to make sure the one way shaft is clean after you scuff it up so you get no pieces of steel wool in the engine.

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    k well not having the servo saver tight brings another problem, when it turns the to parts come apart more then normal, and would break cleaner work on the bearing?

    with that high torque servo it should move the wheels when on the ground, just check and see if the servo arm is moving and just the servo saver is not moving.

    take the servo off or the horn off the servo and see if it has any binding in the steering, tooks like there is binding.

    Looks like the right dog bone is bent which could cause binding ?

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    Kael,

    Check your steerring plate. These are prone to bending and if bent just a little all the steering will bind. I have had problems with My sons steering but then made a fix for it. I have a tread about the avalanche steering which seems to be the only weak link that I have found and so far since I did the fix I have not had any problems. Check the plate and I bet its bent. All it takes is 1 or 2 bad landings on one of the front tires and the plate will bend. It should be perfectly straight.
    The one with the most toys wins. I think I may have a good chance of winning.

    the servo works fine without the horn on it, ill check the steering plate, i tihnks is good but if its a slight bend that might be it, if i but i on upside down would that cause a problem

    RE: "OFFICIAL" Redcat Avalanche thread

    I dont think you can install it backwards. You should also have to sets of bushings that are in the plate that if installed wrong it will bind. Did you have the plate off for some reason.
