I'm not that sure, but I think these bodies would be a good fit for the E-firestorm. Anyone can correct me if I'm mistaken.

The direct-fit body for the E-Firestorm is the HPI DSX-2. I just picked up a clear DSX-2 body at my LHS this weekend. I want to run the original style body painted-up for racing for now just so folks at the track know I'm driving a different truck, not another Losi or Associated.

I don't think the DSX-1 body for the Nitro Firestorm will clear the rear shock towers.

Pro-line makes the Moab tires. They have a version for 1/10 trucks for 2.2 size wheels like what the E-Firestorm uses. Should run about $15 (online) or $19 (LHS) for the pair. There's a larger version of the tire for T-Maxx/Savage size monster trucks.

any 200mm will fit you just have to drill the holes for body posts and antenna

The firestorm bodies aren't 200mm. Maybe you are thinking of nitro TC's? The DSX-2 Is a direct replacement, but I'm guessing any body meant to fit the T4 would work because I have a T4 and the Firestorm looks similiar to it.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I am looking for an alternative to the DSX-2 body for my Efirestorm. Can anyone suggest anything? Thanks.

not really any other bodies that fit, best to take it to the hobby shop and experiment with different shells.
