Are these Firehammer's any good?

Sounds like a good deal but do not have the extra cash right now. If I did I would love to get these. Make one an onroad and the other an offroad. I want one of each.

I have the Firehammer MT. They have their weakpoints, but all RC's do.

If you decide to get one, it is strongly suggested that you purchase the following:

Steel Pinion gear, large alloy mount, eventually a tuned pipe, eventually an alloy motor mount.

I think the first two are probably the most important and the only place you can get those currently are from a place called HobbyThek in Germany.

I like my Firehammer MT a lot. I also have a Baja 5b by HPI. That is probably the best one out there, but that depends on who you ask.

Lucky enough for me MLH carried FG's and will soon get in MCD's Both of my FG's i got i put on layaway ) Layaway is your friend. it only kills you knowing you have it but have to wait to get it

Im not 100% sure but last time i checked. Rcnutshobbies.com had a layaway plan for there stuff. the company just recently moved to texas but you can double check and see whats up.
