awesome car, handles like a dream, crazy fast on 3s. typical top notch quality from HPI. HPI has always taken care of me with my blitz and im sure if i need something for the firestorm it will be no different. GO HPI!

HPI Racing E-Firestorm 10T Flux RTR Brushless w/TF40 2.4 Radio, Battery & Charger
I bought this truck becuase I love the durability of HPI and I wanted something i could race in the stadium truck class. I already own a Blitz ESE, so it seemed like the prefect fit since nearly all the ESE parts interchange, the only exception being main chassis and a few other odds and ends.. the ESE parts are firmer and can be dyed you favorite colors if you want to customize your Fstorm which is a bonus. this little truck has been plenty durable and plenty fast, almost too fast, even on 2s. It takes some tuning to get it to work on the track better. The kit takes well to tuning changes. I went with the MIP ball diff, AE green springs on the back HPI white on front, 2 degrees camber, 35wt frt 30wt rear, race spec tires, and it seems to be working good now. It has been a lot of effort, but it's been a labor of love. Not sure why, but this kit has a special spot in my collection. If you want a fast, durable basher that can wheelie like no other, this is your truck. If you are looking for something that you can race, it's going to require some time and dedication, but the payoff is there if you are willing and able. This truck is down for whatever. it's been putting the spank down at the track on some AE and Losi products, which is always nice.. =)

i really like the firestorm . its my 1st electric truck,it out ran my nitro rustler off the start&stayed right with it at top speed.youneed a lipo battery for sure way better.if you plan to buy one check out all the after market aluminum parts.the only down side to this truck was a lot of plastic chassis parts break(im pretty hard on them) super fast handles well. worth the money.really simple to work on,good begginer to intermediate model. i would buy another!!!!!!!!

excellent RC, for battery against the NHM does not work properly! I customized the car and bought two lipos 3300 m / ah 35c 7.4 volts. Reinforce your in the front of the car in aluminum. by shocks in the front and rear "anti reversal wheeling" the top! I had fun in the forest .. with dead leaves on the ground .. you need a tester lipo (around $ 10) essential to avoid damaging the lipo. Quality cars except on a sidewalk or damaged ... I have a 50mp / h, but spare parts are readily available ..:) I have repaired and is ready again without any problem .... several races Graville, clay, and I bought a set of tires on tarmac for change "tires pro" with very tender gums ..... and I m brightness ... of France Stéphane
