Must-have upgrades for Stampede 4X4 VXL
I'd like to buy a Stampede 4X4 VXL general off road, andWheelies.
Could you list the must have upgrades for this truck?
I don't care too much for the look, just want to get the truck tough so that it won't be easily broken in light bashing, or the differential won't strip due to lot of wheelies.
Thanks for your help.
Are the Traxxas Aluminium parts stronger than the stock plastic ones...
Had my Stampede 4x4 VXL for less than a month (actually it is my 7 year old sons) and I've ordered most, if not all of the
Traxxas Aluminium upgrade parts. Waiting for the MIP drive shafts and need to do some hard Losi springs as I'm carrying more weight due to a heavy metal roll cage. My goal is to make this 4x4 as indestructable as possible and run 3 cell regularly. I am running the RPM front and rear A-arms. Also running the Traxxas big bore shocks.
I like the look and quality of the Traxxas upgrade parts but having just replaced the shock towers front and rear. They look
great but I have to ask whether replacing all the stock parts with aluminium upgrade parts is going to meet my goal of making this super strong? I'm not a serious basher at all and prefer to run the car on moderate offroad terrain such as grass and bushland without needing to jump it high and roughing it up. What I want is a super fast tank that will be lots of fun and reliable.
So, put money aside when responding to this question, if you could replace all stock parts with the available upgrades, would it be stonger and more durable or not?
