    RE: -=OFFICIAL HPI FIRESTORM THREAD=-

    Do you think they will ever make a SS kit as they never made any Rush kits? Looks pretty good if you want 2-wheel drive but I have been running 4 wheel drive on all 3 of my race vehicles do not think I could ever go back to 2-wheel drive. 4-wheel drive just handles SO MUCH better! It does look like a very good beginner truck like HPI advertises it as.

    That truck looks like a knock off of two other STs released this year

    A SS kit could be cool. However, they would need something new brought to the table instead a copy of some other great truck.

    RE: -=OFFICIAL HPI FIRESTORM THREAD=-

    there were two ST's released this year? LOL. this truck looks like it has more in common with the old Nitro Rush than any other stadium truck IMO.

    I suppose that HPI is just some company that copies other peoples' designs, eh? more to the point, the Firestorm was probably in the late stages of development when the GT2 came out, so any resemblance to IT is either completely coincidental, or you just can't tell the differences between two different stadium trucks.

    I like it, but after serious deliberation, I don't plan to buy one

    I just bought a ducati, I went electric over nitro... tuning hassles on something with two wheels persuaded me to go electric. Besides, they are getting faster runs out of the electrics when modified... but either way, check one out, they are definitely cool!!

    as for the Firestorm, I thought about it, then decided to pass... I don't race, so I'd rather run 4WD, and besides I have entirely too many rc cars!!

    I am going to quite going to HPI web site and looking at it as the more I look at it the better I like it. I do believe it is going to be a great truck and give some others a fit on the track.

    don't hate tower, hate HPI. Tower is not at fault, its HPI and their manufacturers of the products for the delay. When a company states a deadline and can not make it, they are forced to tell their retailers that its going to be pushed back.
