RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
whats a good rim to use. I got a pair of Proline bow tie tires coming for the back. These factory tires just don't cut it. I run more on pavement then dirt. What is a good tire for dirt, when I decide to run dirt.
Also what is a tuned pipe and header that will bolt straight on.

If its the stock plug, there only good for a couple of runs. Use an A3 plug. Did you mess with any of the settings on the engine? Do not touch the low end needle (the one in the center of the throttle arm on the carb it should be flush) If it needs to be broken in turn the high end needle clockwise gently until its resist, then turn it out 2 1/2 turns. Make sure the head bolts are tight and the carb and o-ring are compressed down onto the throttle body. (don't force it) Use a hot glow starter and it should start with a couple of pulls. Let me know?!

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
i'd say that ur glow plug is bad

What is another brand of pull start that can be used on the BB
Mine uncoiled and broke. I don't want to deal with redcat if I don't have to

Now one of the back wheels won't turn. It rotates when the RPM is very high, but other than that it won't rotate the same time as the other does. It locks up, but i can turn it by hand

ehroof 03-11-2007 09:27 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
you mean wont turn when you are driving it, like it wont spin?

frekbynature2002 03-11-2007 09:39 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
Yes, it starts to turn high higher RPM than usual. The others turn fine but not the 1 back. I thought something was maybe jammed at the dog bone, but I found nothing. I'm able to turn free by hand, but not when driving

ehroof 03-11-2007 09:40 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
sounds like something inside of the diff, when you turn it by hand does the other side turn in the oposite direction and visa versa

frekbynature2002 03-11-2007 09:48 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
yes the other turns oposite direction and vise versa

ehroof 03-11-2007 09:58 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
wow bro, thats a little crazy, when you are driving it, does that one wheel stayed locked up, it doest spin?

frekbynature2002 03-11-2007 10:03 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
yes, causes me to dig a hole cause one side locks up. When i get it going, it pulls cause of it and i have to run it hard to get it to spin just a little. I'm at a stand still with this one. Thought a rock was jammed, but nothing is there

ehroof 03-11-2007 10:14 AM

RE: Redcat Racing Tornado Thread
 
i would say its inside the diff, or a bearing is going bad, it only happens when it is under load
