    I think most st trucks only use two screws to hold the motor....that being said maybe you should work on the balance of the truck so it lands on the wheels instead of the motor.
    touche redfisher, but I thought this truck was indestruckable ?

    I maybe landed 4 times on the back and boom, screw threat busted, bravo !

    Wanna make a point here for all you guys saying that this firestorm can take anything: you were wrong, the nitro version maybe (never owned it) but the flux of course not, parts will start breaking quickly if you like to play wild

    I ll get a longer screw i think

    Hold on Turbo.......I never said the flux was indestuctable,...I said the non-flux firestorm is due to the low out of the box speeds....I have always said that the flux is much faster and you will break parts alot more....You have to look at this way,no rc is going to take abuse like that and not break...Anyways keep up the good work.

    YAY!  I just rebuilt my diff for the first time in my Storm and also replaced the diff shafts which were badly worn.  Definitely wasn't hard at all.  I put in OFNA 30,000wt diff fluid since stock is the same and don't want my fluid leaking out too quick.  Everything's smooth as a baby's bottom now!   Oh and i also threw some gear lube into the tranny as well to keep things nice and smooth.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Just wanted to confirm that the all aluminum front makes the front pretty much unbreakable

    As most of you know by now, I am the guys who kept breaking parts. Especially on the front when jumping or hitting the front wheel.

    Since the full aluminum upgrade, I have not brake anything, and boy did I crash, jump, crash spin.

    Also regarding the broken flux motor screw threat, I just used the other two unused holes by rotating the motor 1/4 turn, the 3 wires are now a little short so I will have to find a new base for the ESC

    Photo of the setup posted a few page back. And again, thanks goes to Redfisher for his ongoing support, without him this thread would be DEAD! (i'll try to contribute once in a while too, if i may....lol )

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I'm wondering if the diff shafts wear faster with bigger and heavier rear tires?  When I upgraded to the Proline Gladiators that's when I first noticed significant wear of the shafts and they are a little bigger and weigh quite a bit more than the stock pin tires.  I've since switched back over to the pin style tires since my Gladiators actually didn't increase traction on my track, the pins seem to work quite well.  For cornering my Proline Blade front tires worked much better than the stock front tires.........got rid of a quite a bit of understeer.  Just some fyi to toss to u guys!

    @ Redvanmafia

    Yes, i got the flux so high speed + front wheel impact would break either the bulkhead or suspension arm


    @ lcb1978

    This is what I got

    http://www.neweramodels.com/item.cgi...=&part_id=9533

    http://www.neweramodels.com/item.cgi...=&part_id=8908

    The front aluminum suspension arm + FRONT SUSPENSION ARM MOUNT + FRONT ARM BRACE were purchased as a set on ebay for dirt cheap. Be aware that only the front NITRO aluminum suspension arm fit the flux, the NITRO rear arm will not. They are currently no FLux version aluminum arms.

    Where can I get a heat sink for  my Sidewinder 4600 that fits around the motor cover? Seems to run a little hot in my 'Storm, maybe I should also gear down. . . I do not care if I have to do a little motorcoverectamy to make it fit.

    I'm confused, what setup do you recommend then to reduce shaft wear ?

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    i was just giving an fyi.  essentially there's many factors that contribute to shaft wear...motor torque, wheels/tires, slipper setting, on-road vs off-road use yada yada...
