Default RedCat Volcano (Only Please)

Yep i got one and have found bits and pieces of info here and there about it. Thought we could get our own designated thread. Any issues you have come accross with the "Redcat Volcano" please share it here. Do not tell us how we should have bought something else. We didn't and please don't waist the time typing here. Issues i'm interested in are.

1-Has anyone actually driven it alongside another 1/10th scale truck with comparable motors.

2-Has anyone tried to actually race it.

3-Problems and how you fixed it.

4-Good stories of what you have done with your Volcano.

5-Best place you have found for parts.

6-Any existing well known parts that do fit.

7-Thank you for helping us fellow Volcano owners, and hopefully i will also be able to add some good info.

For a guy with less than a year of experience you sure post a lot trying to sound like you know what the hell is going on.

But I love those avatars!

I did a simple yahoo search on redcat volcano and came up with this. Really easy to find. Probably less time than it took to ask the question.

When you first get it plug in and charge the glow plug ignighter wether you are going to use it or not. It takes 10 hours to charge so don't plan on going out with a buddy later in the day. OOOOps

I havent had too many of these come into my shop up here but i know one thing to hop up is you can use 2.2 1/10 truck wheels. From what i know the originals are weak at the hub. Although the 2.2's would be smaller in diameter it will give far greater response, durability and tire selection.
