    The stock engine is good and runs well. The os .18 CV-R is a good engine that will have slightly more power and tune like a dream. I run it in an RS4 and wish I had it in my firstorm when I had it...

    .32 Big boy, you have to upgrade your shocks - my recommendation are those from a Kyosho RT6 or Losi 22t 2.0. Best big bore shocks you can get.

    The cage and engine mounts and few other things were from Newera Models. I don't know if they are in business or making firestorm parts anymore. The blitz roll cage won't work on a firestorm...

    For bashing and play I say have all the power you can and the castle motor is great for that. For racing nothing beats a sensored motor with just the right number of turns for what you are doing,...

    The four pole nature of the motor is what is killing you. For racing the 13.5 will be soft and controllable and the 8.5 is about the limit you can put in one if you want to drive straight on a...

    900 is very high, 500 is 32.5 (its not a linear scale) my guess is its over 60 or so. The springs that come with the powerstrokes are probably fine, getting a tuning kit of springs is overkill. If...

    I've reduced my once very large RC fleet of vehicles to just a handful and the lovable RS4 made the cut. I only drive it a few times a year and it likely won't be replaced but I can't part with it.
