    Those wheels look nice, and they're dyable, but I have no idea what type of wheels an associated uses. RPM doesn't label what size hex it uses, just says it's for a 3/16 axle.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I'm excited about the race this weekend. We had about 6 trucks on the track a couple weeks ago.

    Supermagician when are you gonna start racing your E-firestorm. If you havent already that is.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Ill start racing whenever I can, but not before I get my airtronics radio and some proline bowties for the rears on some new rims. itll be hard because no one at my track run electrics, so I'll see what I can race.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Here's a link to a little movie of my bone stock EFirestorm. There's a lot of vids of hopped-up brushless eF's, someone may want to see one stock before they buy...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taaQvjSXZUY

    This thing is tough too. I was chasing around my nieces in their Power Wheels Jeep and was constantly banging into their wheels, twice got the nose wedged under their wheels. And of course, once, it got completely run over squarely by their back wheel. The body got crunched (that popped right out), and the ESC popped loose (that popped right back in). Wife's family was shocked since they'd never seen a hobby-grade vehicle before...

    I'm enjoying it mightily!!

    I'll be sure to race it again at my local track this weekend, and watch the slash race again.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    the rpm rims will fit but you may have to order just rears, bring your truck to your lhs and see if the rims fit, if your lhs is cool they'll let you try them on. also i was running a checkpoint 12x2 brushed in mine before i went brushless and it kept up with the brushless guys, if you got the cash to get one it'll keep up, just remember to oil the bearings before break in, and after

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I punished my E Firestorm today, and I finally broke something! It was just the spur, I'm amazed that was all I busted so far.

    Some quick vids of the punishment:

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I have broke my output diff shaft anyone have found a fix for this ? my e-fs is only 2 weeks old I buyed it brand new...




    ////


    maybe BAD ESC SETTING ( too much power ) ?

    maybe SLIPPER NUT too MUCH TIGHT ( I used it to get wheelies on demands into tarmac/grass from my lipo 2s 7.4v )


    ////


    there is my ESC setting :


    brake amount : 50%
    reverse throttle : 60%
    punch control : 50%
    drag Brake : disabled
    start power : low
    motor timing : lowest
    arming time : 1.5 seconds
    throttle dead band : average (0.1000 ms (*)

    throttle curve = default
    brake curve = default


    ////


    PS : I run it on Mamba Max 5700 / Mamba Max ESC

    Forget all settings.
    Just start lubricating the diff shafts and rear axle on both ends of dog bones.
    You are running them dry.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Would do.
    I use a syringe to apply grease.
    Since there will be dirt mixed with grease after a run or so, I first give it a squirt of WD40 to loosen the grease and then reapply grease using pressure of syringe. This replaces the old dirty lubricant with fresh lubricant.
    I save opening up the rear part for lubrication even now and then

    Did you take the vid in widescreen? Looks like youtube scrunched it. The guys at my local track asked me and my pal to run novice, we'd be the only people running HPI, how on earth did you get that many HPI owners together at once?

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    That was a great race. Looked like you lapped a few people.
    Did you get 1st place with it? Was you running it stock from the box?
    You did change your springs I could tell you had yellow ones on the rear as well.
    I think I saw 1 rustler in the video. The rest were AE and Losi trucks.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Mine is starting to wear some as well, but it didnt wear that bad. You need some grease on the end of that dogbone.
    Do not run those dry they will wear out even faster. I might have to replace mine also after a few more races.
    I'll probably end up taking the ones out from my RS4mt.
