it could be either the diff's pinion gear or ring gear. you will have to open up the diff and look for the damage.

I have a Volcano EXP Pro, and the stock battery lasts maybe 7-8 minutes.  Is this normal?  I understand from this forum most of the time you need to update to LIPO' s being the best.  I have looked at so many batteries and chargers my eyes are spinning.  7.4 5000mah batteries from $20 - $200.  Charger/balancer from $30 - $300.  What do I buy???  Can anyone one please help???  I don;t want to spend a fortune just have something that works good.

Do I need to change ESC, and do I need to put some kind of shutoff thing because of the LIPO?  As ya'll can tell, I'm new to this stuff. <span class="info"> </span>

I have a volcano s30 with a sh.18 engine the block cracked around the motor mount has any body els had this problem ???? . Not very happy with the sh .18 engine it only has about three quaters of a gallon of nitro run thru it .Is there another kind of engine that will work on my volcano s30 woould apprieciat any help I could get .

Thats pretty surprising, the sh engines are very good. A good replacement and powerful also is the os .18 cvrx, its pretty much a direct fit and a very good engine. You should use the engine replacement program and get another sh.18 engine, they are very good engines, it will be a much cheaper route to go.

Thanks . I took the engine apart and found that the piston rod is rubbing right in the spot it broke . I bought the truck off ebay  can i still do the engine replacement program.

anyone have any issues with the on/off switch on the reciver not working? the plastic around mine broke and now it wont turn on, though it was because of weak batteries but put a fresh set in and still nothing, or is it possible that the receiver is bad? i have no response from either the throttle or steering, and cant even hear the hum when you first turn it on

ok so i think the receiver on/off switch broke on my volcano s30 and the plastic under the switch is broke. I get no response from either the throttle or steering. I thought first it was dead batteries because i left it on, but even with a fresh get i get nothing. anyone else has a similar issue,

is the power switch a part of he battery tray cover or separate

RE: Redcat Racing Volcano Thread
 
on my volcano s30 the plastic piece broke i just put it back on and put a piece of black tape on it haven't had a problem. Check the wires going to the switch if they are broke you can try to solder them with a pen point soldering iron. The switch is separte
