you will also need new pull starters and one way bearings for the engines. The starters will fall off before the first tank of gas is out. Then, the engine will pull away from the plastic gear assembly, and grind it off. So, buy new gears right away. You'll red permatex the screws down on the engine mounts, but they will vibrate loose.
New exhaust manifold and gaskets aint a bad idea either. These screws will also fall out, and drop the parts somewhere in tthe snow. You'll wanna be running right away after that, so, get the screws too..
Red loctite dies not work on these. Tried it. Wont hold. The metal parts have to be surgically clean, and the loctite needs 24 hrs to set.
Spare engines aint a bad idea either. The motor blocks will crack in the cold.. so a couple of these are needed.
I can send you pictures if you like of all this...
Better idea? Take the volcanoes back, and get an associated MGT 4.6. Nice 8th scale thats hard to kill, and your LHS has the parts. No mail ordering from redcat and waiting up to 10 days to get the parts.
Just letting you know the real deal, and i do have pictures of my poor volcano.. after her first tank of break in fuel.
Best advice?? Loctite eveyry metal to metal screw.. CA glue every metal into plastic screw.
After EACH half tank of fuel, take it all apart, and do again.
Do not jump these cars. you'll rip the primary plastic styrene gears out.
Dont waste your money on the front universal joints either. They will break right off as soon as throttle is applied...
And do remember... try to have fun!!!
Just enjoy all the maintenance.. have fun, and learn something.
