Keith why dont you put the linkages on the inside hole on the steering nuckle that would help a bit (that is if you didnt already lol)

dustin you posted the 2 speed transmission, that would make 2 speed instead of single. there is the single speed with a 13 tooth clutchbell http://allaboutfunhobbies.com/store/...roducts_id/149 its what i have and i love it.
then there is just the single speed tranny http://allaboutfunhobbies.com/store/...roducts_id/465
and that way you could buy a different clutchbell. i have the 13 tooth that comes in the combo, and love it. sometimes i wish i had more low end, but i also have a top end pipe. but you guys have smaller wheels. i would just get the combo and buy another bell if you need it.

edit: i have the volcano that why i said you guys have smaller wheels (if stock)

RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread

Uhoo there is a little bit of trimming that you have to fo to get it to fit but its really easy man. That way you can run whatever gear ratio you want. Your not stuck with a 44 tooth spur gear. I put the 52 spur 14 bell on mine because I have the taller tires but its hard on the diffs

Keith what hole do you have the turnbuckles hooked up to on your front steering hubs? Mine have 2 holes

TigerDrive works well with the VX18 engine, bolts right on, all you need is a cordless drill.

im having a lil trouble fitting my hyper st bigger tank in my tsunami . theres like no room :( , cos i still need strength for the front end so its pretty hard to do plus keep it neat , so got to run the small stock one for now , 5min runtimes :( , what other tanks would be a better fit ?

eminentguitar 08-05-2008 11:18 PM

RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread
 
oh man thats a tough one can you get a picture of it for me and some dimenssions (the big tank)? I put an ofna 125cc tank in my mt2 that might be a tight fit

uhoo_01 08-05-2008 11:41 PM

RE: Redcat Racing Tsunami Thread
 
the reason i got the brand new hyper st pro tank was because i need fuel line and a filter and on ebay there was a huper truggy tank good fuel line and filter and also all the mounts and stuff Brand new unused for $22 , hahaha why not
