Well im not to sure about hopups, im sure integy makes some aluminum parts.Tires are all up to you but I think you sorta limited to size, but proline makes quite a few different styles from street to dirt and lots of different tread patterns. Look around find what you want.

Just 2.2 tires are what you need....depends on what you do with it......bow ties on the rear and edges on the front for the track or dirt.....if you do alot of road bashing then get a set of road rage tires.....Check out pro lines lineup of tires for 1/10th scale stadium trucks.
I'd say get a new engine but the stocker is a real screamer in the Firestorm.
New body for looks
look here:
Penny Racer with Air brakes(only one in Canada)
Paris Junction Hobbies/Morgan Fuels/Ebay
Better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool

i have a friend who has a firestorm and i would say what RCcanuck said put 2.2 tiers on there. the stock engine works really well with the car but it you could always buy the tuned pipe it would all looks and a little performance.
