Default E-Firestorm vs. E-Firestorm Flux

Is there any other difference between the E-Firestorm and the E-Firestorm Flux besides the CC Sidewinder brushless system?
Are the components in the Flux stronger to compensate for the increase in power?
If I drop a Sidewinder system into a stock E-Firestorm do I essentially get a Flux?

Thanks in advance.

or you could drop in the new havoc 3s 8.5 ballistic system and have a much smoother ride and you could run 3s....[8D]

I am fairly new to this hobby. What is speed and acceleration difference between the two? If the non brushless can go up to 25 mph (without any mods), I would be quite satisfied.

Thanks

you would have to run a 7 cell battery and go up to a 21t pinoin to hit 25 with the non-flux storm.
