Tower hobbies probably is the best, but i believe there sale ends tomorrow. for 30 dollars off... it came to like 233$ Shipped.
i think there normal price on there is 254$

But theres other places you can get it. i havent really shopped much around for one. just tower. since i always order from there.

Believe me the Firestorm is not a POS. It rips, it keeps up and beats the best of them (GT2's, Losi Adam Drake 2 etc). I have been racing mine at my local club, and am very impressed with it.

I don't know if you noticed but they won't have them in stock until late may. At first it was late Apr, then early may, and now late may. Every other place has them out of stock also.

hey storm
yes that is right. i`d go with 20%. that what i use.
i sent you an e mail.
one more thing. its a good idea to have a few glows plug on hand.
they do sometimes burn out while trying to tune a new rich engine.
feel free to post back here and lets us know how it going.
we are all here to help you. after all this hobby is about having fun.
