    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Can someone here tell me, when your in forward and you hit reverse, should the tires lock up? Or does it take a while to slow down then stop? My e-firestorm doesn't lock up the tires when i go from forward to reverse, but if i'm in reverse and hit forward it instantly jumps forward. Any idea's of this is normal? Thanks.

    its not a bad thing if they lock up, and yes going from rev to fwd will not ease it on and that isnt good for the gears you should loosen your slipper

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    If you just want speed go with the VXL. If you want something you can race go for the e-firestorm. You can bash the crap out of both of them but only one can you tune to race (stock that is).

    When I go from forward to reverse the car breaks as it should. The tires may lock up a little but that is more if I turn when breaking (hard turn 180 or something like that). It also depends on what surface I am on.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Just got back from a great bash. Setup 4 jumps 1 ft up to 3 ft and prob like 20 degrees (nothing) up to about 50 for the 3 ft jump. I think I can truly say that since nothing broke on this car I am just going to have to start making things up to go buy new parts. This was crazy one jump was about a foot and 1/2 over my head landed perfect. Others were lower but did not land as well (many cartwheels). This thing just kept going. I am very happy with my purchase (already was but even more now). I would absolutely recommend this truck to anyone looking for a great stock ST. I really can't wait to get brushless and better servos. For now though I think new tires will be my first purchase and then a better battery.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    i like mine to just need to decide on either a speed passion or mamba 5700 i only will race mine no bashing i just picked up some ae springs and will retune the shocks and fill the rear diff with 2k diff fluid. im probley gonna end up with the mamba system just cause the price tag and it comes with all the soft ware. and i have to get rid of the rtr body i just cant stand the rtr look of it. its been a loooong time since i bought a rtr LOL. really wish this was avalible as an ss kit. still i think i made a good buy i just cant get over how cool this gear diff is is about time somebody put this in a 10/th scale. mabey things like this and lipo/brushless systems will help get electric racing back on top.[8D]

    On road and surfaces like tiles and sidewalk, yes, my truck does not stop at a blink too. But I was told it was probably part of the design, as this is meant more as an off-road vehicle, or a safety feature to protect the gears.
    Once in the dirt, the rear skids around nicely when brake/reverse is applied.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    If you have replaced the receiver than you need to set the ESC back up or you will have no brakes at all. I found this out the hard way and there is no instructions on setting it up either.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Well, the brakes wasn't strong straight out of the box, but it worked for my purpose (leisure) and where I play (offroad).
    But I think I may have somehow damaged the stock HPI esc, now the truck don't hit full throttle even when the trigger is all the way in.. Power is not consistent, usually slow in fact, and the esc heats up quite a bit more.

    So I got the esc replaced with a new Futaba unit tonite, and the truck appeared to have recovered it's speed and much more. With the new esc, I can slam on the brakes and the wheels lock, or ease it on to slow the truck down. Still need to hit the track tomoro to check out if the truck is really fixed though.
    Am I the first to have a problem with this esc? [&o]

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    The main problem I heard about with the E Firestorm was supposed to be the ESC but I couldn't find any specifics. My truck arrived in the box, with the ESC in 3 pieces floating around. I assumed that was the problem everyone was talking about as I wasn't able to get mine to stay together. I ended up gluing it with tire glue and plan to replace it soon with something that will run a brushless motor eventually.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I have not had a problem with my esc yet. Well it was not saying connected to the chassis but I fixed that and haven't had a problem yet. I think I may have finally hurt something on the car but it I have not examined it yet.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Hey guys, I own a brushless stampede and it is very fun. However I just found this track by my house and I dont think that my stampede will work all that well there. So do you think that i should buy a firestorm or shoul I wait and get the firestorm flux? 310 seems like a lot for that truck. I think that i will just want to drive it in the stock class. I have batteries and chargers and all that good stuff. So i would just have to get the car.

    Or should I go for the nitro version of the firestorm?

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    i have a habit of always wanting to throttle at full everytime a buggy is stationary
    just love the torque and after that seeing it catching a decent speed
    anyway are you sayin it will tend to spin out and has characteristic of a 2wd buggy?

    Unless you loosen the slipper. You can use it as a traction control almost. But its still best to just learn some throttle control. LOL

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    what can i say? im the throttle happy type
    and is loosening the slipper goin to help?
    cos if im to loosen too much the slipper will just be too loose to even move the truck
    and is this thing ready for a brushless set up out of the box?

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I would say stock (with crappy batteries) I have hit like 20-25. With better batteries I am sure it would be more like 25-30. Still it is plenty fast for what I am doing with it at least right now.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    not 100% yet but I think I am going to get the SW / 5700 combo but might go for the mamba max 5700 combo so in time I can get the 3s lipo going. Considered the 6900 but not sold on it yet however it is the same price (actually 5 dollars cheaper). Has anyone ever ordered from Bishop Power Productions? How were they? I think even with the coupon at towers I cannot get the mamba max and 5700 or 6900 for that price.

    What I need to change the gearing at all, looking at Castle Creations web site I need to up the spur gear just wondering what people have seen / done so far.
