Umm whoa!!! How does that thing accelerate? [8D] I'm gonna have to say that I think it MIGHT rub a little when turning.
Those tires are frickin huge :D
rubs a little and the acceleration sucks but it is fun
im having some problems with my volcano sv if im trying to get up to a high speed my car stalls. but if i do get it to a highspeed and im trying to slow down the engine will cut i was wondering wut i should do
its either too rich or too lean, have you touched the tuning needles?
yea but the engine to me i think it is touchy i was running it to day and i was holding a constant speed (around 15-20mph) and it would stall while i was holding the throttle
you have a fuel filter on it? Did you clean the carb?
if your running to lean it will starve for fuel, too rich and it will flood, close the high needle and put it out 3 turns, make the low needle flush with the collar around it. start it up and run it, when it warms up start to lean the high needle a little at a time, like 1/8 of a turn, drive it and see if it gets better.
thanks ill try that and ill get back to you
i also have only about 3-4 hours running time on it
how many tanks? is it broken in? 5 tanks or more?
yea its gone through about 8 or 9 tanks of gas
its broken in, just start to lean it out and see what happens
i have a one more question is the stx better than the sv and the sv pro
the only difference is the suspension, the stx has regular a arms, the sv has ball joint suspension and the sv has ball joint suspension in aluminum with the aluminum upgrades.
hi im wondering about the himoto estarter is it worth the money because im dead from pulling it to start and also i keep destroying me pull starter
electric starters are good, you can get the whole hpi setup from tower for like $35, it has the backplate and starter wand, you will need to get a battery and charger. If the engine is tuned right, it should start on 2 or 3 pulls after priming it. The downside with the electric starters is that you need to have a charged batter to start the car, if not, your out of luck and have to wait for the batter to charge, not to mention its another thing to carry around to use your car.
i might just get two batteries but yeah i think im going to get one
the himoto one is only 20 dollars though and it has everything but the battery pack
i never seen the himoto starter or used it, you will still need to get a batter and charger for it, but at $20 i dont think you can go wrong.
Its one of the HSP units ehroof [:-] or the same thing[&:]
ehroof, I've got another one for you. I let one of my buddies run my Volcano SV and in the process he broke the transmitter antenna. I've checked with Redcat and it's made by Futaba. I've gone to tower hobbies and they have ten or more Futaba antennas. This one has male threads on the end. Can you please help me? Oh, that's the first AND last time I let a buddy run one of my R/C's!! Thanks again,. Pete
