    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    On a track yes, as you slow down into a corner, with lighter springs up front more weight will transfer to the front giving more steering. For bashing and high speed runs it'll be less effective lol...

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Adding some weight to the front will help add a little more steering. You could also lower the front ride height. Lighter springs and shock oil up front will all help also. :D

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Any "high current" connectors are good. Power Poles aren't very popular in the rc car/truck world but are definitely a viable alternative, especially if you can't or don't want to solder.

    Soldering's a snap once you've learned the knack of how to do it properly. With all my 1/8 stuff I use EC5 connectors and with my 1/10 rc's my preferred method is to plug the esc directly into the...

    Do yourself a HUGE favour and buy the $39. If you buy the $12 ones it'll end up costing you $51 as the $12 are useless and you'll end up eventually ordering a $39 crimper, and that's without...

    RE: Sprint 2 Shocks

    I have both my Sprint 2's decked out with the HB shocks from the Cyclone and if I'm not mistaken the new TCX uses the same shocks. Beautiful shocks and IMO just as good as the aluminum Tamiyas.

    Where'd you order from Red?

    A couple yrs ago I ordered a decent sized bag of power poles from powerwerx.com for a decent price. They seem to be the power pole headquarters.
