Two-wheel drive stadium trucks can be some of the toughest vehicles to drive consistently. I’ve seen many seasoned four-wheel drive veterans humbled by a small block two-wheel drive stadium truck. The stadium truck simply requires you to be on top of your game the entire time you’re behind the wheel. In sort, it’s isn’t about grabbing a fistful of throttle all the time, but rather about finesse and skill.

When one thinks of two-wheel drive stadium trucks, HPI probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, that might be about to change thanks to the Firestorm. It’s a rugged chassis approach, powered by a .18 cubic inch motor that will appeal to bashers and most club racers. Of course, the incredible looking body shell makes sure you’re the envy of the rest of the track as well!

So let’s dive under the hood of this latest release from HPI, and then head out to the track to see exactly what it has to offer!
