    They stopped making the T and now only make the HT, Basically the same just different body shell and tires.

    I have this truck and I love it.
    i use Firestorm for half year. Firestorm very durable (i haven't broke anything)
    difference between T and HT only in painting.
    i buy brush version and it run out of the box (with 6 cell nimh) nearly 30 km/h
    now i use brusless combo and it run 67km/h (with 6 cell nimh).
    I recommended to buy this truck.

    technically the HT has a full set of dirtbones all around whereas the stock storm has ribs and ground assaults out back....

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread



    I was wondering if anyone has run proline gladiators on the firestorm as I was thinking of getting a set.  Would you get them for the frnt wheels as well as I'm currently using the ribbed again.  The track I tend to drive on is generally hard packed with some loose sections.  I've tried holeshots (no good for me) and calibres seem ok but I wanted something with a bit more bite.  Also are most guys running stock gear pinion setups.
    The reason I want new tyres is I tend to lose the front end into corners regardless of which soft/hard springs use.  Wondering if I need some extra weight at the front?
    Anyway, thanks guys as any advice will be helpful.. 
    Dave

    no they are not water proof, But if you check youtube you can find videos on how to water proof it yourself.

    I used gladiators and loved them on all surfaces. They wear very quickly on asphalt. I think they were a little heavier, though, than most tires.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Hey guys,
    Mounted my new RPM front and rear A-Arms: what a difference it makes.
    The front stock were really poor in quality. The back seemed ok but changed the whole setup.
    No more issue with ESC though. Again, I am VERY happy with my LRP 4600 mAh / 8.4V: wheelies on demand.
    My LHS also replaced one of the leaking shock in 2 days!
    Have painted a new body shell white. Pics soon...
    Now awaiting for:
    <meta charset="utf-8">RPM Rear Bearing Carriers
    RPM In-Line Steering Blocks
    <meta charset="utf-8">ProTek 5x11x4mm rubber sealed bearings
    Once this is done, will probably change the servo saver for the INTEGY alloy sttering bell crank one.
    Then that will be me done.
    I like the truck; 2WD you get a real sense of driving. Having more fun than with with my brushless 4WD buggy.
    Have a good WE,

    Take a look on the dimensions....You'll understand if you compare it to any car servo..

    I use this on a 4wd truggy.It's very good.
