The modifications look real clean and as if they belong.

They rate the motor at 50,000 RPM. I wonder what it can really turn under load and with that ESC? Our gas engines turn 14 - 18,000 RPM. If you get more revs out of that set up then you don't need a two-speed to get it faster than a gasoline setup.

I wouldn't want to run this truck in dirt or especially water/mud. I couldn't imagine how hard it would be to clean or how much you would ruin with dirt and moisture.

I also agree with the visceral fun of a gas engine. I had a 1/10 electric truck before my Firehammer. Once I heard that gas engine idle and scream I was hooked on gas!

Still, very cool modification.

Believe it or not that motor and speed control is just as water proof as a 2 stroker.

I would like it if someone else was buying and charging the batteries it takes to run that thing.

Its so much easier to charge a little receiver pack and fill a gas tank than it is to charge up those batteries. your still back to the run for 10 mins and charge for hours. i like the charge for 30 mins and run for 5 hours type deal i get now, or at least thats what im supposed to get my batteries are always messed up. i get about a tank and a half on each charge.

there is no way that E-hammer would hold up to what i put my gasser through. i can just see those motor wires wadding up and shorting out the batteries and burning the truck to the ground. I wouldnt touch it even if i had the cash.
