    Standup:

    Here is a link to an online conversion chart that will allow you to convert cubic centimeters to cubic inches and vice-versa. Kinda handy to have when looking at engine sizes since some companies use one measurement and other companies use the another.

    RE: -=OFFICIAL HPI FIRESTORM THREAD=-

    I need to quite looking at the Firestorm as the more I look at it the more I want it and that is all I need is another RC truck. I sold some in the last couple of years, as I do not run all I have now. But you know one more and I will have 20 a nice round number. This hobby is more addicting then drugs. The tires on it would work well on the track around here. Any one that has the Firestorm have they ever owned a HPI 18SS engine and is the one in the Firestorm better? I sure hope so. Wish they would make a kit with out an engine like the Hellfire SS.

    hehe the firestorm beckons....you know you want it but i have not driven too many nitros but i can definitely appreciate this one.... not so much a begginers car....really quick and agile....i'm going to put a hump pack in for better servo response and might splurge for new electronics [X(] when i have money...which will be a while ha i'm always broke and when i get some i blow it [:@]

    YA I put a venom 2100mah hump pack in my reciever very quick response, highly recommended! Although I had to modify the plug to get it to plug into the truck, no biggy.
