The E-Firestorm 10 HT features a clean new silver/gunmetal/blue scheme to really turn heads. The DSX-2 body comes completely trimmed, decaled and mounted for the ultimate in ease. The intricate paint designs feature an action sports inspired layout for concours quality appearance. And you can always customize your truck with any of the clear or pre-painted polycarbonate body shells from the huge assortment of HPI bodies and other manufacturers as well! For great looks, the E-Firestorm 10 HT also sports a new set of shiny chrome Scorch 6-spoke wheels that are now wrapped in an aggressive set of officially licensed Yokohama Gelolander M/T tires with enough tread and traction to conquer any surface you put in front of it.
TOUGH is the word that best describes the E-Firestorm 10 HT. Everywhere you look the critical parts have been designed to withstand the rigors of off-road racing. The key to durability for any 2WD stadium truck is the transmission, and the E-Firestorm 10 HT tranny is extra tough, using all metal gears to easily handle the power of hot electric motors. Inside the tranny is a sealed planetary differential with, again, all metal gears for extra toughness. Everything is protected by an adjustable dual-pad slipper clutch mated to durable 48 pitch gears, with tough steel dogbones and axles to transmit the power to the tires.
The Firestorm's design heritage is easy to spot in the E-Firestorm 10 HT. The stealthy black color theme is purposefully applied to the sleek curves of the composite nylon main chassis with strategically center-mounted batteries, servo and transmission. The proven tough suspension from the Firestorm is carried over for maximum durability. Subtle features like threaded shock bodies and hex head screws point out that the E-Firestorm 10 HT is not your average RTR truck, it's a whole new level of design for the RTR class.
The E-Firestorm 10 HT uses a race-inspired design to give owners full control over suspension adjustments for excellent handling on surfaces like open fields, parks, and even to your local racing track. The lay down steering servo and low profile transmission help provide a very low center of gravity (CG) for quick response.
A full set of turnbuckles allows you to adjust camber and front toe. The rear toe and anti-squat angles are adjustable using pivot blocks, just like on the high-spec racing trucks. Silicone oil-filled shocks absorb all bumps and jumps and keep the tires on the ground. The shocks even feature threaded shock bodies for easy spring adjustments, while 3 upper and 2 lower shock mounts give a multitude of tuning possibilities. A full set of 14 ball bearings provide maximum drive train efficiency for faster top speed and durability. Wide-track suspension gives the E-Firestorm 10 HT superb control. Providing all of the traction is a set of officially licensed Yokohama Geolander M/T tires.
As with all HPI cars and trucks, you get a full, in-depth instruction manual with step-by-step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your truck for maintenance and easy servicing. The manual also includes a handy parts list and full-scale drawings of the parts and hardware. The included HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box!
