HPI Racing 10551 E-FIRESTORM 10T DSX-2 TRUCK 2WD RTR RC Model Bil (Röd)
Nitro performance and electric convenience!
The HPI E-Firestorm is the first electric 2WD truck to be released by HPI Racing, and is the product of years of research and the collected knowledge that has made HPI nitro trucks so successful! Ready to go right out of the box, the E-Firestorm is factory pre-assembled and pre-painted, built from tough nitro truck parts and designed using the latest computer software and engineering know-how.
The E-Firestorm fills the gap that once existed in the HPI kit line-up, becoming the first-ever HPI electric 2WD truck! Being the first in a new line of groundbreaking RC kits is never easy, however HPI designers have taken inspiration from the amazing Firestorm 10T nitro truck as well as top-level racing trucks.
The design of the E-Firestorm is unheard of at the price level it will be offered at – previously, there were only two choices when it came to electric 2WD RTR trucks: very expensive yet fragile watered-down race trucks, or durable low-cost trucks with limited performance. The E-Firestorm is the first truck in this segment to offer tough race-level quality at TRUE Ready-to-Run prices! You get the handling and performance of the top racing trucks as well as the durability and value of other RTR trucks!
The unique chassis of the E-Firestorm is all-new and totally new to the HPI line-up of kits. It is made from a moulded composite plastic for high rigidity, and is modularly designed so the front and rear suspension parts can be removed or added when maintenance is required.
To enhance the durability of the chassis, the interior is braced longitudinally and the front and rear ends feature extra bracing to help keep the suspension doing its job. The deeply upturned sides of the chassis allow the ride height to be set very low for an off-road truck, but prevent the sides of the chassis from digging in at extreme suspension angles.
The chassis is designed with a perfectly smooth, countersunk underside and angled side pods for extra cornering performance. The heavily braced, modular front end bolts on with four steel hex screws, providing the optimum amount of kick-up for top off-road performance. The rear suspension and transmission also mount onto a single modular place for quick and easy maintenance.
The E-Firestorm uses the tough suspension design and suspension geometry from the Firestorm 10T truck for extreme ruggedness and durability. Extra-long suspension arms are damped by adjustable shock absorbers, and turnbuckle camber links can be mounted in multiple locations for fine-tuning of the handling. This makes the E-Firestorm nimble and easy to handle in all conditions!
The E-Firestorm uses the same front suspension as the nitro Firestorm, so you know it will be tough and long-lasting. The entire front end of the nitro Firestorm can actually be removed and bolted right on the E-Firestorm! This means that not only will spares be easy to find, but the tough front end parts of the Firestorm are the standard parts of the E-Firestorm. The rear end of both trucks share several parts as well, including the hubs, shocks and turnbuckles.
15-Turn Firebolt Motor
Giving the E-Firestorm the ability to get over and around anything is 15-turn motor, the HPI Firebolt! This fixed-endbell motor has the grunt and power to give the E-Firestorm plenty of acceleration and high top speeds! With standard ‘bullet’ connectors, the Firebolt can work with any electronic speed controller or can be replaced by a faster motor to give you even more speed and torque.
Finishing off the E-Firestorm is an all-new DSX-2 sleek racing body! Pre-painted in flashy racing colours, it will definitely look the part at any race track! It is pre-cut and pre-drilled so there is absolutely no preparation time required, just fit it on and go!
