Default WTS: HPI FireStorm Brushless 1/10 Stadium Truck (Fully Hopped Up + Castle SideWinder)

Letting go of this speedy and fun truck to make room for new 4WD 1/8 buggy and to concentrate on the rest of my trucks. The FireStorm has been set up for 3S Lipo (takes 2S as well of course). This truck is a blast to drive and bash. Wonderful ride. Tremendous amount of power and torque. Wheelies on demand but if you control the throttle, it’ll accelerate to top speed in a blink of an eye thanks to the Castle brushless system.

Guaranteed to leave a grin when you throttle it. Been doing backyard bashing mainly (on dry grass and tarmac usually). As you can tell from the pics, condition is really good. Comes with 10 LEDs to light up the night (1 red rear LED needs to be replaced though)! Lots of spares available. Shell’s been bashed but it’s still a beauty as shown in pc. Scratches on under carriage (what’s new?) But all these won’t won’t affect the performance at all . Picture shows my first set of tires on the truck so you can guess how much mileage this truck has seen. Upgraded with lots of Blitz Pro parts. Fully hopped up such that you can relax and just play.

I can sell it ARTR or if you need Rx/Tx, just need to top up a bit more.

For those who need more info, I’ve tried to be comprehensive and compiled them here. You can’t believe the amount of money that had gone into the truck:

2. 103373 Blitz Gear 88 Tooth
3. Plus the parts you see in the picture (Stand not included. Tx/Rx & batteries are optional extra)

A new FireStorm @ TaiSing would have cost you S$549. Hop-ups + Spares cost more than US$560. But like the norm in this hobby, letting go all the above for just $400.

This truck is ARTR. Here’s what you need to get going:
1. Radio + Receiver

Default Upzzz....

Forgot to add that the LED lights installed in the truck are of the programable sort. You can program the lights to go from 50-100% brightness based on trottle inputs. e.g. Brighter lights when you accelerate, brake lights when you brake. Steer left, left blinker comes on etc.
