RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Yeah, the difference between NiMH and Lipo, especially when you hit 3S and higher, is insane. I wanted to hit the higher speeds to hang with the nitro trucks, and wanted the punch to come out of a...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

THe difference is that you are running NiMH, where I am running 3S Lipo. Night and day difference. It is like having two identical cars, while one has a 2.5L 4-cylinder and the other car has a V-10...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Well, I have, but there are times when you want the extra power.

It just came down to the fact that this is not a race truck. If I want to race, I should get something more suited to that and...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Well, I took my e-Firestorm to the track yesterday to race. The race itself was only 10 minutes, but I got a solid 7 hours of practice and qualifiers and stuff like that, so it was time and money...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Well, I mean I will race them around the track and bash with them and see which one I like better and then sell the other one.

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

My buddy and I are gonna try racing our E-Firestorm Flux trucks and see what happens.

However, Traxxas just announced the Slash 4x4 and I am definitely getting one of those! Completely...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Anybody else having issues with Castle ESC's blowing up?

My buddy has an E-Firestorm and he has gone through two of them... Both the stock one, and a Mamba Monster Maxx...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

I have considered that, but I want all my electronics to be waterproof. Servo already is. I want the ESC to be as well. The receiver I can put in a balloon or waterproof case because I do not have...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Well, my diff gears disintegrated, but that was pretty cheap to replace and rebuild. The 5700kV motor simply runs too hot with 3S lipo no matter what gears I ran. Burned out two of them. I have a...

RE: How to Maintain Your E-Firestorm and Other Gear Diffs

Cool, I found the case and gear set at Tower and ordered up a set. Thanks!

RE: How to Maintain Your E-Firestorm and Other Gear Diffs

Anybody have a part # for the E-Firestorm diff, and where you can order it? I don't want to rebuild mine, I would rather just get the whole thing, already assembled, just add some grease and go.

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Anyone know where I can buy a new Diff for this truck?? Two of the bevel gears in my diff just fell apart, busted chunks of metal all inside the diff.

I don't really feel like rebuilding it, I...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

I hate nitro. Nothing worse than wasting a tank of gas to tune it, and then the temp warms up during the day and you have to tune it again... I had a 4WD Traxxas S-Maxx 3.3 and I spent more time...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Well, the problem is that you bought an off-road stadium race/bashing truck and are using it exclusively on the road where you are running high RPM constantly. If the street and high speed runs are...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Hmmm... Well, I tossed in a 15T pinion and will play with that, but if I cannot get temps under control, I may have to try another Velineon 3500kV motor and stock gearing. I will keep the Mamba...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Well, this motor hit 200 degrees as well after 20 minutes of bashing.

I am not convinced that 3S LiPo is simply too much power for this kind of application. I see some people claiming that they...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

What kind of paste? You mean like Artic Silver 5 used for CPU heatsinks? I think that they have an epoxy version of that stuff which should work great.

Once my rear bumper is installed, I will...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Besides, Aluminum still bends pretty easily. I always preferred the tough nylon parts from RPM. They take a beating, are damned near impossible to snap, but they flex more than aluminum which...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Hmmm... I considered a heatsink and fan. Problem is that the fan will get clogged with dirt and grass in about 5 minutes unless I seal it away, which would then hurt airflow.

I can do a...

RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

Ok, I am sure that the answer to my question is buried somewhere in the 111 pages of this thread, but I will ask some forgivemess for just asking instead of pouring through 1000 posts and hoping that...

RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

I use ribbed tires up front, and for the rear I have a set of Dirt Works, or I have a set of ProLine Gator-something... large, square and fairly stiff spikes, really digs into the dirt and grass. ...

RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

I like the Slash because it is more scale, looks good and is very durable as a basher. And yeah, timing a bashing race is kinda cool itself.

The DT may be faster and handle better, but it is...

RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

Last night I actually broke a rim, one of the Losi stock rims with an HPI Geolander on it. Was driving along, bashing in the back yard, and suddenly the wheel goes flying. I thought that the nut...
