Should Be it



Unfortunately it was 35 degrees and rained all damn day :angry:
But i was still able to Heat cycle break in my motor in my garage by just putting the rig on a stand! Blow me stupid rain :D Hopefully i completed it correctly since it was my first time using this method :hehe:

Heres a few random snapshots:

very nice

should of picked up some spurs
Thanks :]

I'm guessing these throw spurs often?

I'm sure ill have a whole box full of parts in about a month because when a part goes out ill normally buy 2 or 3 to have extras!

Sweet how do you like it?

And yeah mine was on the pricey side 49.99 :\
It was the only one i could find locally and i pretty much had to have it to break it in right

I hope you didn't buy the "super" charger yet... they are a waste of money on these types of engines due to no way for you to control the timing of the exhaust port. Better off just spending the money on a faster engine than trying to make a RTR engine fast.

Not saying anything to be mean, just trying to help you avoid burning up your current engine. Do a search for it, you will see.

Otherwise, looks like a nice rig. :)

i got my firestorm like 2 weeeks a go too! lol i need new rear tires though haha.If i were you, i would invest in a failsafe, as the guys say, 20 dollar insurance plan, It will apply full brake when your batterys are going dead, the car is going out of range, and if the frequency is interupted.

I've been using 2 OFNA ones for 4+ years and the only thing they do, is their job. Go too far, it engages, batteries get low, it engages, shut off remote, engages.
