    Driftdragon - we aren't too far apart. Thats a heck of a motor to put in a firestorm, heck, its a lot of motor for a 4x4SCT on 2s, I can't imagine what its like in the firestorm. I put an 8th scale motor in once but it was too heavy so it was hard to appreciate the power.

    Never did, but I am sure they would perform the same.

    Thanks again, I am just curious how much different the offset would be.

    Good point, they are zero offset and the storm uses deep offset wheels. Don't do it, the truck will be two inches narrower and you will notice it.

    Yeah, it looks like they are going to release something new. The photos show the current release with a new body. I doubt there is a new firestorm, my guess is they are coming out with a new graphics package. Unfortunately, stadium truck is on the decline everywhere. If it does come out I would be interested in it, though, I am currently driving a durango.

    The box says 77+ MPH and it looks like the ESC is different so it looks like it has a re-vamped powertrain.

    Let my wife drive my truck the other day. 23 seconds later she hits a curb at full speed and breaks the front wheel off. I told her she drives it like she drivers her car. She didn't like that much

ID:	2040431Hi Guys, im a total newb to the forum and to my Firestorm Flux. Got it a couple weeks back, its the model with the 4800 Vector Brushless motor + Vapor (Sidewinder2) Castle combo. Really impressed with it overall.
    Running it with ONYX Duratrax 5000mah 25C 2s LiPo's charging with Hitech X1 MF
    Changes i have made so far:
    - Airtronics Mx-V Controller + Receiver (replace stock conroller)
    - Dynamite Robber Speedtracks tires+wheels for road running (had to drill center slightly bigger as was a bit smaller than HPI rims).
    - Castle quick connect (on order)
    - TBC...


    Can other recommend some good hop ups or setups / battery types etc that will enhance this already great car?

    Welcome to the forum and the firestorm. There isn't much to do to it, I would say to make sure you have loctite on the servo saver nut and just enjoy it. There aren't as many mods available for the truck now that the Blitz is all but dead but there should be enough out there to satisfy you. I ran a carbon fibre chassis at one point with mine. If you get time I recommend you going through the past 100 pages or so in here that have been written, you won't need to read the whole thing since a lot has been repeated.

    One thing off the top of my head would be to get a faster metal geared servo for it. Choices are limitless and depend on what you can spend.

    Thank you for the response and advise Nitro-Rob, sorry for the late response. Great i will look into the faster servo, have noticed the stock one is a little slow.
    Found out that in my area there are also not many people who run 1/10 or electric for that matter. So ive ordered a 1/8 Buggy - JQ "THE Car" Nitro which should arrive next week so quite excited for that too.

    You are lucky to be in an area where nitro is big and popular over electric. My nitro buggy and truggies were sold off this spring and summer. 10th scale has become popular here which makes sense since there are more indoor tracks for 10th in the winter. That being said, I don't know if I will be able to race stadium truck since its popularity is down in this area compared to the buggy and short course classes.
