The ready-to-run E-Firestorm Flux, HPI’s first-ever brushless motor equipped 2WD 1/10th scale stadium truck is now better than ever! HPI has taken the proven platform and added a 2.4GHz radio system, a more powerful ESC/motor combination, waterproof electronics, an 8.4V battery pack, AA batteries for the transmitter, Split 5 chrome wheels and two fresh new paint jobs. The updated E-Firestorm Flux let’s you drive in wet conditions and has a top speed of over 50 mph with on-command wheelies!
VIDEO Features: The E-Firestorm Flux now has a waterproof receiver box to keep the 2.4Ghz receiver protected form the elements for glitch-free operation. A new SF-10W waterproof steering servo and a waterproof Flux Vapor speed control mean your E-firestorm won’t be stopped by wet conditions like rain, snow and mud. Chassis: Composite nylon tub 3mm (0.12") thick Drive: Rear wheel with steel dogbones and axles Motor: HPI Flux Vektor 4800kV brushless with Neodymium magnet, oversized sealed ball bearings, four pole rotor for more torque and triple insulated windings for long life Electronic Speed Control: HPI Flux Vapor, waterproof, handles 3S LiPo battery, Linear Torque Braking for better control on corner entry sensorless tecnology and cross cut aluminum heat sink Radio: 2.4GHz with high-torque steering servo, failsafe and waterproof receiver box Battery: 8.4V Plazma 3300mAh NiMH with Deans female ultra plug Battery Charger: AC wall type with Standard to Deans adapter Transmitter Batteries: Eight AA Wheels: Chrome finish Split 5 2.0" (51mm) wide, 2.2" (55mm) diameter with 12mm aluminum hex adapters compatible with all HPI 1/10 scale vehicles Front Tires: Front Line 4" (102mm) diameter, 2.1" (53mm) wide Rear Tires: Ground Assault 4" (102mm) diameter, 2.1" (53mm) wide Transmission: Low profile 2.6:1 ratio with all metal gears and dual pad slipper clutch Shocks: Four silicone oil-filled composite body Suspension: Assembled with captured hinge pins, geometry and components from Firestorm 10 Differential: Sealed planetary type Spur Gear: 87 tooth 48 pitch Pinion Gear: 19 tooth 48 pitch Body: Pre-painted and trimmed DSX-2 Caster: Adjustable front and rear toe-in, caster/toe-in refers to the angle of the front suspension when viewed from the side of the car Camber: Adjustable, camber refers to the angle of the tops of the tires from vertical when viewed from front or behind vehicle with dual pad slipper clutch Steering: Bell crank with cam-type servo saver steering arms laydown steering servo position Warranty Period: Two year limited The E-Firestorm flux takes the durable E-Firestorm platform to the next level with amazing performance from brushless motor technology. The updated Flux brushless system includes a Flux Vektor 4800Kv brushless motor that is controlled by Flux Vapor waterproof electronic speed control. The new motor/esc combo is now capable of handling a 3S Li-Po battery pack for a blazing top speed over 50 mph! Experience the extreme power an efficiency that brushless technology offers. Controlling the E-Firestorm Flux is easy with the HPI 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. If the truck loses radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop. Tough is the word that best describes the E-Firestorm Flux. Everywhere you look the critical parts have been designed to withstand the rigors of off-road racing. The key to durability for any 2WD stadium truck is the transmission, and the E-Firestorm Flux tranny is extra tough, using all metal gears to easily handle the power of hot electric motors. Inside the tranny is a sealed planetary differential with, again, all metal gears for extra toughness. And everything is protected by an adjustable dual-pad slipper clutch mated to durable 48 pitch gears, with tough steel dogbones and axles transmit the power to the tires. The E-Firestorm Flux uses race-inspired design to give owners full control over suspension adjustments for excellent handling on surfaces like open fields, parks, and even to your local racing track. The lay down steering servo and low profile transmission help provide a very low center of gravity (CG) for quick response. A full set of turnbuckles allows you to adjust camber and front toe. The rear toe and anti-squat angles are adjustable using pivot blocks, just like on the high-spec racing trucks. Silicone oil-filled shocks absorb all bumps and jumps and keep the tires on the ground. The shocks even feature threaded shock bodies for easy spring adjustments, while 3 upper and 2 lower shock mounts give a multitude of tuning possibilities. 14 ball bearings provide maximum drive train efficiency for faster top speed and durability. Wide-track suspension gives the E-Firestorm Flux superb control. Providing extra grip and control are square-pin Ground Assault rear tires, and asymmetric dual-edge Front Line tires keep the E-Firestorm Flux pointed in the right direction. The E-Firestorm Flux takes full advantage of all of the benefits of electric power; it's quiet, clean, powerful, and truly plug-and-play, no starter or fuel needed! Blazing power comes from a Flux Vektor brushless motor, controlled by an electronic speed control for complete control over throttle, brakes, and reverse. NiMh to Li-Po battery packs all fit easily in the E-Firestorm battery slot that gives secure and tool-free access. As with all HPI cars and trucks, you get a full, in-depth instruction manual with step-by-step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your truck for maintenance and easy servicing. The manual also includes a handy parts list and full-scale drawings of the parts and hardware. And the included HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box! Includes: HPI Firestorm 10T Flux Stadium Truck, brushless motor, ESC, 8.4V 3300mAh battery, wall charger, six AA batteries, 2.4GHz radio with steering servo, Front Line front tires, Ground Assault rear tires, DSX-2 painted body and instruction manual Requires: Building and track equipment
