    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Have you swapped the rear arms side to side to make the wheelbase longer? That will help anyway.....

    do any of you have any advice on how to keep my front end down.
    Loosen the slipper.

    With the weight of the battery in the car...Take the spur gear cover off, jam a peice of cardboard or paper folded up a few times between the spur and pinion, and roll the rear wheels of the car backwards. Loosen the slipper to the point where the front end just tries to start coming up but then falls back down on its own weight. That's a good point to start from if you are interested in keeping the front end down and protecting driveline comoponents like the rear wheel axles (I have actually broken an axle). If it is still doing wheelstands at that point you cna go back in and loosen it a tick and see how that works out for you.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Glad your back. What have you done to your E-firestorm, because I race mine also.
    I have ran the stock tires and they work just fine at my local track.
    I also switched the springs around like you have suggested and it jumped the jumps alot better than it was before.
    I have you to thank and influceing me and many others to buy this truck for the track.

    Let me tell ya I can stand toe to toe with T4's at my track.
    My first day at the track the T4 guys were like "WOW" what a cool truck you picked up.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I dunno he had buggy wheels on it also. That's odd....On impact he was maybe going 50-60mph.
    I also noticed he ran a 10-cell pack in the truck, that's nuts!! lol
    So that damage is acceptable at that speed. He clipped the curb and it flipped in mid-air. WOW!!

    This is the video I liked: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMCfk...eature=related

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I'm running the same thing the guy above is running also. I did it because it works, the stock spur and stock slipper pads were not that great.
    You cant even remove the stock slipper pads because they are glued to the spur gear, I thought that was kinda crappy, so I swapped it out.
    I'm running the stock 19 tooth pinion also. Nothing wrong with the stock pinion it was mainly the way the spur and slipper pads that bugged me.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I'm running a 9.5 LRP/Associated motor thats 4700kv. Thats basically all you need for a 2wd truck at my local track, I made all the jumps with it.
    Plus I have 100kv more than the flux version would have, I think it has a 4600kv motor. Dont know how much a difference that would make.
    I have been running 3300gp's that came from radio shack and 3600 elites from cheapbatterypacks.com, they are saddles but fit this chassis just fine.
    It was a bit faster with the 3600 saddles. The 3300 Gp's still lasted a good 8-10 mins.
    Brushless motors dont drain packs as fast as brushed motors would.

    My slipper pads and spur gear come apart upon removing the nut, didn't stick at all. [8D] I always thought it should be so?
    Worked fine for the past months, still going good after having Novak brushless installed a month back.
