I'm looking to buy a firestorm but i want to change the body. There is'nt any other bodies made for the firestorm that interest me .I was looking at the venom t 10 its a 1/10 scale body so Iam sure i can make i fit . Im looking for a pick up or suv style body so if anyone know of any other bodies hit me up.

yhea I like the colour to. Was not ment to be this colour actually. I made a mistake by spraying black over the yellow to soon to the black came thru, but looks green not black now. A friend of mine said it looks like the same colour they use on the new BMW M3 - Phoenix Yellow.

Yhea!!! Post your's when done. I would like to see how it looks, sound like it's gona be wicked.[8D]

whats next for the mustang? Are you going for looks or performents? I think you should put new shoes on it . that will make i pop, maybe some crome. I hope they come out with some new hopups like a 4 wheel drive convertion are some thing for more power. can't waint to get mine money a little tight but Iam working on it. keep up the good work on the mustang keep me posted.

hey
i know this thread will be bias but..
what do you think of the hpi mt2 18ss kit compared to the hpi firestorm
i want something i can do jumps with, go fast and not too hard to drive
i like the idea of doing wheelies with the fire storm, can you make the mt do wheelies?

what are the pros and cons of the 2 cars?

They came out with a bigblock kit.....New Era sells them...Its in the new RC driver...They show one with an Ofna.28 in it....Wonder how that would run?LOL Can u say Jato killer?It would be close,if u could put a 2 speed in the firestorm then it would be over!!!And they go about 42mph stock from what the magazines say!

Hi Ya. Mustang looking preety sweet, but i havent had a chance to test it yet. You know work and all that. I need to get some pf the body stands so that I can raize the body by like maybe 5mm just so that I have the room for the shocks. I want to also change the rims and and get better on road tread. Someone also told me that I should change the clutch bell to have more teeth as that will make it better for riding on road. I 'll keep you posted, I should get some picks out this weekend.

Whats goin on guys?
I got my first r/c car when i was 13 , a traxxas stampede. After that i wanted to go bigger i decided to buy a hpi mt-2 , an amazing stadium truck. I then went to a Monster gt, a 1/8th scale swift, and a mantis, all great trucks. After selling all these and no longer wanting to be in this hobby( to much $ as u all know) i read this forum . I purchased a hpi firestorm, what a truck ! runs like a monster. Put a tunned alumminum pipe on it , great acceleration. Let me know what u guys found out for some upgrades, and what runs best. thanks

ben, your high or low speed needle is too rich, if it bogs down and then picks up again its cos there is too much fuel in the engine, lean it out a bit. and with regards to your pull start not recoiling, take it apart and put it back together, I've done mine about 3 times now, its a little tricky at first, but now I can rebuilt my pullstart in about 5 minutes and have it back on my truck straight away. trust me, its simple enough!
