HPI RTR Firestorm 10T Gets Updated

Apr 28, 2011 No Comments by

The HPI Firestorm 10T combines HPI’s legendary durability with the high performing, nitro burning, Firestorm stadium truck platform. Built to conquer whatever you throw at it, the already well-equipped Firestorm just got even better! It still packs the same all metal gear drivetrain, extremely powerful G3.0 power plant and aluminum tuned pipe just to name a few. It now comes loaded with an HPI 2.4GHz radio system, two fresh new body graphics, shiny chrome Scorch wheels, and bonus accessories to get you up and running – glow igniter, fuel bottle, extra glow plug, 4-way wrench, and Plazma AA’s for your transmitter and receiver!

The Firestorm 10T has it all: speed, handling, value and great looks… all in a convenient ready-to-run package that gets you out of the box and running in no time at all.

2.4GHZ EQUIPPED

The Firestorm 10T is controlled by the HPI 2.4GHz radio system and keeping the 2.4GHz radio equipment safe is a sealed radio box that protects the receiver and battery and features a new routing system to protect the wiring harness. The radio box features a convenient position for the on/off switch, and even has room for a five cell receiver battery should you choose.

NEW LOOKS

The Firestorm 10T receives a fresh new graphics package with your choice of a pre-painted DSX-1 body in an eye-catching blue/yellow/black or orange/white/black paint scheme. The finishing touch is a fresh set of jaw-dropping shiny chrome Scorch wheels.

FULLY ADJUSTABLE

The Firestorm 10T puts all of that power to the ground with fully adjustable suspension featuring all-new geometry, vertically adjustable front and rear camber links, adjustable shock positions, silicone oil filled shocks with threaded shock bodies, adjustable wheel base, adjustable rear toe-in and anti-squat. All of the adjustability built into the Firestorm 10T makes a truck that is already fun to drive even more fun by giving the driver the ability to dial the truck into driving conditions.

HPI TOUGHNESS

All of these features are tied into the sturdy dual deck chassis featuring a thick 3mm aluminum main deck that serves as the backbone, combined with a tough steel center brace to maintain consistent gear mesh between the spur gear and clutch bell… even on the hardest of landings. Keeping the center of gravity low was a priority so the Firestorm was designed with a lay down steering servo and a low profile 75cc fuel tank with an internal fuel filter to help protect the engine. Hooking all of this power to the suspension is a durable low profile gearbox that uses a low 4.11:1 gear ratio, a sealed and tunable planetary gear differential, a dual pad slipper clutch, and all-metal internal gears, making for a super tough and durable drivetrain. Traction is handled by new Ground Assault tapered pin rear tires and Front Line ribbed front tires for multi-surface handling and long life.

Customizing the Firestorm will be easy with front and rear 12mm hubs allowing you to use the same wheels front and back. Also included in the package is the new DSX-1 fully painted body with custom graphics and adjustable height body mounts. The RTR Firestorm 10T has it all: speed, handling, value and great looks… all in a convenient ready-to-run package that gets you out of the box and running in no time at all.
