The ready-to-run E-Firestorm Flux, HPI's first-ever brushless motor equipped 2WD 1/10th scale stadium truck, is now better than ever!
We've taken the proven platform and added a 2.4GHz radio system, a more powerful ESC/motor combination, waterproof electronics, an 8.4V battery pack,
AA batteries for the transmitter, Split 5 chrome wheels and two fresh new paint jobs. The updated E-Firestorm Flux let's you drive in wet conditions
and has a top speed of over 50 mph with on-command wheelies!
The E-Firestorm Flux now has a waterproof receiver box to keep the 2.4GHz receiver protected from the elements for glitch-free operation. A new SF-10W waterproof steering servo and a waterproof Flux Vapor speed control mean your E-Firestorm won't be stopped by wet conditions like rain, snow, and mud.
The E-Firestorm Flux takes the durable E-Firestorm platform to the next level with amazing performance from brushless motor technology. The updated Flux brushless system includes a Flux Vektor 4800Kv brushless motor that is controlled by Flux Vapor waterproof electronic speed control. The new motor/esc combo is now capable of handling a 3S Li-Po battery pack for a blazing top speed over 50 mph! Experience the extreme power and efficiency that brushless technology offers.
Controlling the E-Firestorm Flux is easy with the HPI 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. If the truck loses radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop.
TOUGH is the word that best describes the E-Firestorm Flux. 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 Flux 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. And everything is protected by an adjustable dual-pad slipper clutch mated to durable 48 pitch gears, with tough steel dogbones and axles transmit the power to the tires.
To help get your new E-Firestorm Flux running as quickly as possible, a rechargeable 8.4V Plazma 3300mAh battery pack and AC wall charger are now included, along with Plazma AA's for your transmitter! Just charge the battery and you're ready to start driving!
The E-Firestorm Flux features two new pre-painted color choices, Orange/Silver or Yellow/Pink. 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 Flux is topped off with a set of chrome Split 5 wheels.
The E-Firestorm Flux uses 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. 14 ball bearings provide maximum drive train efficiency for faster top speed and durability. Wide-track suspension gives the E-Firestorm Flux superb control. Providing extra grip and control are square-pin Ground Assault rear tires, and asymmetric dual-edge Front Line tires keep the E-Firestorm Flux pointed in the right direction.
The E-Firestorm Flux takes full advantage of all of the benefits of electric power; it's quiet, clean, powerful, and truly plug-and-play, no starter or fuel needed! Blazing power comes from a Flux Vektor brushless motor, controlled by an electronic speed control for complete control over throttle, brakes, and reverse. NiMh to Li-Po battery packs all fit easily in the E-Firestorm battery slot that gives secure and tool-free access.
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. And the included HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box!
From the tough all metal transmission gears to full adjustability of the suspension geometry, the E-Firestorm Flux sets a new standard for ready-to-run stadium trucks. Full ball bearings, brushless 4800Kv motor, waterproof electronics, silicone oil-filled threaded shocks - it's all there on the E-Firestorm Flux, precision built from the factory. And with a top speed of over 50 mph you will have the power you need for extreme off-road driving. Top it off with your choice of a bright red or metallic silver custom screened DSX-2 body and your E-Firestorm is ready to hit the dirt!
