    RE: wont be runnin for a while

    the only thing is, when you are takeing it apart take out the glow plug first then remove the head then the sleeve then the back plate then the conecting rod then the clutch and fly wheel then remove the crank. check it all for scratches. and if the conecting rod is gone might as while buy a new engine... what engine do you have?

    RE: wont be runnin for a while

    Nothing to it... Take the backplate and head off, if your conrod isn't in pieces use the ziptie in the port trick to help pop the sleeve off. Conrod/piston comes off the crank just about TDC (with some gentle coaxing).

    There's my Readers Digest Abridged Version...

    do you have a redcat engine

    If you got an upgraded motor through redcat it will only cost you half the cost of the motor

    Redcat Racing has one of the best engine replacement programs in the industry.

    For as long as you own your vehicle, Redcat will replace your engine no matter what happens to it. Burn it up, wear it out or beat it with a sledge hammer, Redcat will replace it for same or upgraded motor for only 1/2 of the retail price of the replacement motor you want to buy.

    insted of buying a throtal return spring online (for 2 or 3$ highway robery) go down to rona or Home depo take your rc with you and go to the springs and choose one there it is about 50 Cents for one there!

    RE: wont be runnin for a while

    Ya the only thing is take your rc with you and choose a spring that will pull the servo back then the reciver is off but not to mutch that the serco boggs and is rilly slow... so get a light spring but one that will pull it back

    and glad i could help!

    RE: wont be runnin for a while

    ya the throtal return springs are more reliable than fail safes... if your falesafe has a batterie (witch i doubt) it will be ok, but if the power is cut to the fail safe you are screwed! but throtal return springs are a wonder i am going to get one tomoro when i go to my bilders suply
