I have had my Firestorm for about 2 weeks now and absolutely love it! This thing is quick and handles nicely at speed. I am going to change the clutch bell to an 18 or 17T to get a little more pop out of the corners because I run on several tight tracks, but other than that I will run as is for now.

I will warn you to look at the brake...they ship them (or at least mine) with little to no brakes, but just did a little adjusting and they work fine now. Not only adjust the quick adjust but look at adjusting the brake plates a little closer.

Anyone thinking about getting one will not be disappointed, especially with this only costing $260.00.

I will post pics soon.

my brakes work almost too good but i did turn in the adjuster knob on the servo rod a little.... i agree with LT. 725.....this handles really nice and it just keeps revving out....the top and bottom end are pretty snappy.[sm=thumbs_up.gif]

on paved road it grips awesome.... but it will do a burnout if you give it full throttle and turn it [sm=stupid.gif]

Pics...sorry for the bedspread, but I am traveling now and in a hotel.

Forgot to mention in my last post that I did add a front bumper (modified an Associated one) because I have a tendency to bump into things!

I have been on pavement, gravel, and dirt and the thing grips pretty dang good on all of them. Obviously it grips better on pavement, but you have to expect that. And the thing jumps great. I was able to clear a 25 foot tabletop on the local BMX track. Keep the RPM's up because the front has a tendency to dive.

here is a question....why is the tubing so long to depressurize the gas tank? why is the tube so short for the fuel intake? shouldn't that be switched?

the fuel tubing is to pressurize the fuel tank, not to DEpressurize the tank. it's long to keep the engine from running erratically.

it's a nice lookin truck, i still may have to snag one for a basher ST
