E-FIRESTORM 10T RTR – HOT UPDATES AND COOL NEW FEATURES! The E-Firestorm 10T is already a popular, durable and quick truck, so how could HPI designers possibly make it better? By adding crystalless 2.4GHz radio gear to make it easy to drive with your friends and waterproof electronics that allow you to drive in really tough conditions! We didn’t want to stop there, so we added a LiPo battery safety cut-off to the speedo, tossed in a powerful 8.4 volt battery pack and charger, plus AA batteries for the transmitter! To top things off we’ve upgraded the looks with stylish chrome-plated Split 5 wheels and a sweet all-new design for the bodyshell!
The E-Firestorm 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 means your E-Firestorm won\’t be stopped by wet conditions like rain, snow, and mud.
2.4GHz RADIO SYSTEM
Controlling the E-Firestorm 10T 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.
WATERPROOF SPEEDO with LiPo CUT-OFF
Unique to the E-Firestorm 10T, the waterproof SC-15WP electronic speed controller features a LiPo battery cut-off to make your driving time safe as well as fun! The kit comes with a powerful 2000mAh 8.4v NiMH battery which doesn\’t need a cut-off, but if you want to use an optional 2S Lithium-Polymer battery the speedo stops the motor and other electronics drawing power from the battery before it reaches the lowest safe voltage level. This makes sure any LiPo battery isn\’t discharged too much, extending its lifetime while protecting your batteries!
100% READY TO RUN!
The E-Firestorm 10T 2.4GHz comes with absolutely everything you need right out of the box! You get a powerful 8.4 volt battery for huge acceleration and maximum punch, a handy wall charger for safe and reliable charging, PLUS alkaline batteries for the transmitter! It absolutely does not get easier to get right into off-road driving!
TOUGH is the word that best describes the E-Firestorm 10T. 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 10T transmission is extra tough, using all metal gears to easily handle the power of hot electric motors. Inside the transmission 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.
COMPLETE RACING SUSPENSION
The E-Firestorm uses the tough suspension design and suspension geometry from the nitro Firestorm 10T truck for extreme ruggedness, durability and great spares availability. The extra-long suspension arms are damped by adjustable long-strock shock absorbers, and turnbuckle camber links can be mounted in multiple locations for fine-tuning of the handling. All of the plastic parts are moulded from tough nylon for impact absorbtion and strength. At the front, alloy steel axles spin on top-quality rubber-sealed ball bearings for the best efficiency possible, while at the rear, strong steel outdrives, dogbones and axles ensure you have the reliability and ruggedness to take on the most extreme terrain.
The shock absorbers are professionally assembled and filled with real silicone shock oil for consistent shock action no matter the conditions at the track. Fitted with big coil-over springs and equipped with threaded adjustable shock bodies, the shocks can take big hits and are easily adjustable for all racing conditions. Steel turnbuckles let you make fast adjustmnents, and different mounting points allow you to adjust roll centre for advanced race tuning. The front and rear wheels use HPI 12mm \’step\’ type aluminium hex adapters, letting you use any HPI rear wheels you have in your collection on the front OR rear.
The E-Firestorm 10T features a brand new pre-painted bodyshell in a cool \’megaprint\’ design. The DSX-2 body comes completely trimmed, decaled and mounted for the ultimate in ease. The intricate paint design features an extreme sports-inspired layout for a concours-quality appearance. 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! To set off the new paint schemes, the E-Firestorm 10T is topped off with a set of chrome Split 5 wheels
