    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    All diff cups will get worn out under enough use. Just buy some new ones when you need to. I put a body from an rt-4 gp and the cvds & hubs from it as well onto my firestorm.

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    If the motor is too hot then it's geared too high(too slow) if the esc is too hot then it's geared too low(too fast). If they are both over heating then the application is too large.

    I had been racing a xxx-t. Lets just say that this truck makes the xxx-t look like a twig when you put them side by side. From what I have heard the only weakness is the front pivot block which can...

    Why did you guys get alum. rear arms? From the looks of things the rear arms & shock towers should never break & the front arms should just break once in a blue moon.

    Anyone know about these boats?

    I'm curious if anyone has experience with these boats. It looks like they could be made into a great little pond toy for under $100.
