Storm Watch: ELECTRIC FIRESTORM!
New from HPI Racing is the ready-to-run E-Firestorm 2WD 1/10th scale electric powered stadium truck. In the fiercely competitive electric 2WD truck class, the E-Firestorm separates itself from the competition with extra toughness and a long list of race-inspired features… all at a price that beats the competition.
HPI's First-Ever 2WD Electric Truck
Erik Shauver, designer of high performance HPI vehicles like the nitro Firestorm, Hellfire and the Pro 4, was the go-to choice when it came time to add an electric 2WD truck to the HPI line-up. Using his Firestorm design as a starting point, Erik set out to design a truck that blended the toughness needed for an entry level truck with the adjustability of a competitive race truck.

 
The Firestorm's design heritage is easy to spot in the E-Firestorm. 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. And subtle features like threaded shock bodies and hex head screws point out that the E-Firestorm is not your average RTR truck, it's a whole new level of design for the RTR class.

 

Built Tough
TOUGH is the word that best describes the E-Firestorm. 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 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.
 
Performance Driven Design
The E-Firestorm 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 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 pointed in the right direction.
 
Electric Power
The E-Firestorm 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 15 turn Firebolt motor, controlled by an electronic speed control for complete control over throttle, brakes, and reverse. Add your choice of batteries like LiPo, 6-cell NiMh, and even 7-cell NiMh; they all fit easily in the E-Firestorm battery slot that gives secure and tool-free access to the batteries.
 
The Complete Package
From the tough all metal transmission gears to full adjustability of the suspension geometry, the E-Firestorm sets a new standard for ready-to-run stadium trucks. Full ball bearings, 15 turn motor, reversible ESC, silicone oil-filled threaded shocks - it's all there on the E-Firestorm, precision built from the factory. 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!
