    There are good $60-80 dollar options. * You will feel better when you feel the performance difference throughout the pack.
    I will look into some new packs this summer.

    Good location for RC.  You will be 5 min from the TORC track in Waterloo.  It will have most of the same guys that go to the barnyard there.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Hi, after having stored my firestorm for months I thought yesterday why not taking it out, what I did today. Until it totally stopped working after 5 minutes of bashing. I was cornering full throttle when it happended, tried different lipos, switching esc on-off, didn't see the slightest sign from the esc, no bips, no lights. Any thoughts ?
    The esc is a flux motiv,welds are good on the outside and the car was stored in good conditions.

    No smells at all, esc was tepid, same as the motor. I'll test the current with a multimeter if I find one. If no results I'll send an email to hpi, the components have a 2 years warranty, not sure it'll work tho.

    Do you have a castle link?  If so see if you can link to the ESC.  Sounds fried, though.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Thanks for the tip-off, it works when I plug it in. What could it means now concerning the failure ? Switch is dead ? Wire is cut under the conduit ? I guess I'll have to find by myself haha.

    Yeah trace all the wires out with a meter and find where the break is.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I just got me my E Firestorm flux, I work in Afghanistan does anyone have any input on what I should be running in this type of environment? I like to do a little of everything bash, go off roading with it and speed runs on the concrete at my work. My first truck I bought while I've been out here was the Savage XS Flux speed demon from hell and bashed it to hell (which has been on the shelf broke for the past 4 months).

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    A different wheel/tire set up. I put my pro-line trenchers on desperados on and it seems like it's making my motor run extra hot. I would run the stock tires, but i ran them with my 3s venom 5000mah 35c lipo and blew the seal so now they are drying right now. Also what gear ratio should I run if I'm going to be running mostly off-road with my other friends that have cars out here. Everything is stock right now I'm just trying to get some ideas of things I should get. The most important thing I want to do is be able to run for more then 5 mins and not have my motor over heat and cut off.

    I like pro-line dirt-works on 2.2" dish rims for offroad and speed runs. As for gearing you need to pick up a temp gun and gear by temps, A good start would be a 16T pinion and go from there just do not let it go over 200 degrees...Better yet try and keep it around 175-180

    You can also get a fan for the motor to help keep the temps down.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    the trenchers are a bit bigger than the stockers if i remember right, i know with badlands (about a 5inch tire) i had to down to a 16t pinion with my CC4600 motor and even that was hot... if you're playing with tires and dealing with temps i'd get the RR pinion pack best deal you'll find on pinions and you get a t on of options with them.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Red - Yeah I like the pro-line style tires. I'll look into those. I'm sure I could find a fan and try to do some type of modification, it's just that I am very limited on tools out here.

    Lug - Thanks that helps me out playing the guessing game on what I want.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    You can buy one that snaps on the motor and you just plug it into a spare slot in the receiver for power, Castle makes a nice one. You can also get a new motor mount for the storm that has a heat-sink that will pull away some heat

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    There isn't much that needs to be done to the storm, tighten the servo saver when it gets loose and add loctite.  Other than that its set up to work in almost all conditions and situations.  The fan is a good idea if you are dealing with a lot of heat - if you find heat is a problem (get an IR thermometer) then install a smaller pinion by 1-2 teeth.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Yeah I'm going to have to adjust my throttle response on the remote. I was able to run my 4200 7.2 completely dead and ran my 3300 8.4 and over heated my motor to where it cut off. Does anyone know where to buy that snap on fan?

    Thanks Red, I found the exact same one on Tower for $1 cheaper. Trying to build me up a list of things to buy to use my coupon.

    Get a IR temp gun for sure, You may have to mod the motor guard to get the fan in there....No biggie tho.
