    RE: HobbyKing Orange DSM2 compatable receiver

    The image showing the small particles between the leads might be showing an issue. Looks like maybe some assembly residue that didn't get cleaned away. Whether it's a real problem or not depends on...

    RE: Racing my tornado epx pro

    Okay, thanks. I've ordered some Lightning body posts. Iguess if I remove the outer 2 of the 4 battery supports, the side of the chassis will keep the battery from moving around too much especially...

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    Did you have to make any mods to the car to fit that battery in? The stock battery mount is tight on the width and the height.

    RE: Racing my tornado epx pro

    Has anyone designed or found a different way to hold the battery in a Tornado EPX? I bought a Turnigy hard case lipo, and I had to widen the car's 4 battery supports, and the 2 posts are barely tall...

    RE: HobbyKing Orange DSM2 compatable receiver

    I have two more on order. Hopefully they'll be good. The three that I have now Igot in May and June, so I think it's too late to return them.

    RE: HobbyKing Orange DSM2 compatable receiver

    Ihave three of these that Ibought in the Spring this year. Haven't had much time to use them, but have always had trouble getting them to bind to my DX5e. I'd have to try binding a few times before...

    RE: Remember your first RC?

    A Tamiya Grashopper with Futaba Attack AM radio in the early 1980's. Still have it, but way back in the 80's the hard plastic body broke up and the car has a lexan body.

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    Not much traffic on this thread! Is there a better thread for the Tornado EXP Pro?

    Anyone replace the front steering arms with the blue aluminum ones? I bought a set for my Tornado EXP Pro, but...

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    I put a 2S 30C LiPO in it and that solved the problem. It is blazingly fast on acceleration now. The 2000 mAh NiMH that came with the car just isn't good enough.

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    Well, I can't test my theory about the battery yet because the folks from whom I ordered the new battery shipped the wrong one.

    In the meantime, has anyone else had problems like mine? Not able to...

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    Well, it turns out that this already has ball bearings. The wheels are a little sloppier than Iwould have thought with bearings. Maybe that will clean up when Iget aluminum hub carriers.

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    The wheels turn freely, although I'd like to put ball bearings in this car if I can ever figure out which ones to buy. I guess it's time to get an infrared thermometer :-) I've been looking at them...

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    I put a Spektrum SPM1600 receiver voltage protector on my receiver thinking that the receiver voltage droops under heavy throttle. That helped a lot. I get more run time, but I still can't make full...

    RE: *RedCat Racing Tornado EPX Thread*

    Hi All. I just got a Tornado EXPPro on Friday. I'm having a problem with short run time. I only get about 2 or 3 full-throttle passes up and down the street in front of my house before the car...
