Default GS Storm and Storm Cl-1 Thread

Hi, I'm Brett. I have two old Storm Pros that just won't quit. Also an Option Team Fioroni Storm that's still a shelf queen, but not for long! I know Marcus is dusting off his CL-1. Who else has the old Storm or CL-1? I'd like to start a GS thread to share set up tips and chat about our Storms. I think it could help GS just a bit if people see this thread and see what a competitive and durable car GS makes. My old Storms are still competitive in the right hands(not mine!). So please share your experiences with these great buggies and trucks. Most underated car on the market? I think it could be. Hope to hear from some of you soon.

Default Crash Story

Yesterday, GS Storm RTR, the old one, full speed on a long straight away. The track is a tennis court turned into an track. Loses reciever battery at full speed, car tracks straight. Straight to the end of the line, jumps the barrier and strikes the well streched chain link fence a foot or so from the post. Damage: None. A 5 yr. old RTR. They were durable then, and they've improved since. By the way, you can pick up the CL-1 Advanced PLUS for $340 at AMain right now. I should mention that I have no affiliation with GS or AMain. I just want to see GS grow stateside. Kind of nice having something different at the track. Happy Thanksgiving

Default gs

Whats up Brett, I love my Advanced and still think it is the most under rated car out there, I know it's the strongest. I will have mine back together by next pay day, or the next time my D8 brakes lol.

Default Hey Marcus

Glad to hear you're still working on it. Let us know when it's finished and maybe even post a pic somewhere. I'm not familiar with this site yet so I don't know what's possibe. Talk later and happy racing. Oh yeah, and Thanksgiving to.

Default After-market bodies

Does anyone know which of the Crowd Pleazer bodies would be the best fit for the Storm CL-1? Obviously the one chosen will need a bit of trimming, just looking for the best choice. Thanks guys

Default cl-1

I run the MBX-5 proline body on my CL-1 but most MBX-5 and Kyosho 777 and Ofna bodies fit, trust me I have had a few. The blue one is MBX-5 the orange one is Ofna and the green is 777 and the other one is the GS body from the RTR it fits the Advanced to.

Default body

The 777 body fit better but the MBX-5 body looks killer. It's just a tight fit. To tell you the truth I like the stock GS Advanced body the best.

Yeah, the oem would be the best I'm sure, I was just considering price since I like to paint. I can buy two Pro Lines for the cost of one GS

Havn't taken the pics yet. I'll take three pics of my 3 Storm Pros with the three good bodies and some under the hood shots of the Fioroni Storm and the engine I'll be putting in it, a NovaRossi Rex P5. I'll take pics of the Advanced kit, havn't started it yet. Do you have some GS stuff Derek? Seems like I remember you from another thread, not sure though. Tell us about it if you do. Later, Brett. Of course, you're ST1. Guess I could of just scrolled up to. DUH
