The E-Firestorm Flux is just an upgraded version of HPI’s 1/10 scale stadium truck. Along with the waterproof electronics upgrade they’ve added a 2.4 Ghz Radio: a must have with any RC as it’s far better than anything AM ever was. They’ve also added a 8.4v battery and (throwaway) charger.

Although I’ve got to point out that HPI is following traxxas by both adding the waterproof feature, scaling down other popular RCs, and adding a battery and charger to the box, I will admit car looks fantastic and HPI is known for making better quality than Traxxas.
