Kato 10-1247 noisy run at speed

Recommended Posts

Yikes, that sucker is loud. But it sounds like you’ve isolated the problem. Hope the fix works.

Well I took a look at it today and found no space in the motor mount in which to fit a shim. However, I did find that the body wasn't clipping on to the frame quite all the way on one side. It was only off by a fraction of a millimeter, but once I got it to fit, the noise was all gone. I haven't let my guard down just yet though. Things I fix sometimes have a way of pretending to be fixed until they find the perfect moment to reveal the problem to still be there. But I've run it around a few laps both directions, and all seems to be well.
