    How big do you mean? If taller tires are all you're talking about, then there's the Masher 2k's made by Proline. If you mean larger as in the ones they stick on the E Maxx and trucks of that size,...

    If the trucks don't already have them, I would highly recommend an RPM front bumper. A cheap upgrade that will save you downtime and money in the long run because it provides a much wider area of...

    The thought is sound, the using EMaxx axles, but it isn't doable. The problem is spacing on the spur gear side. There is little tolerance as with the current set up, and as big as the 3905's axles...

    It's all in the manner in which you drive the Stampede. If you try to drive it like a race car, it will tip, there's no question about it. It won't tip as easily as some of the trucks it's compared...

    They wouldn't need to widen the chassis at all. Just run the shaft underneath the battery tray, so the battery could fit in the location it does. The battery then pulls double duty as a source of...

    The 'Pede's clearance will help, as it isn't dragging its belly like the Rusty does, so there isn't as much friction to slow it down. The common thing that hinders both is 2wd, but the 'Pede can go...

    Even if it isn't 4wd, I would search high and low for the green to buy a mini 'Pede.

    I also completely support the idea of a 4x4 'Pede, so long as it stays similar to the current 'Pede in the...

    What can I say? I'm attached to my 'Pede. I've owned it since the XL-1 days and I have loved it ever since I first saw it in an issue of R/C Car Action. I don't see me ever getting rid of it. For me,...

    I wish that was the case. How awesome would that be though? And Traxxas could keep the skinny chassis, just run the shaft under the battery bay and push the steering servo to one side. (maybe the...

    I'll second the Losi 8ight shocks. Not much work or hardware needed to mount them either, just some fuel tubing and some small washers to keep the shock in place. They're a little longer than the...

    2s not that fast? If geared right a 2s will crease 50 mph, so if it isn't that fast, what is fast to you?

    Have him get you a Castle system (or better yet, a system from Tekin). If you opt for the Castle system, have him give you the $50 you'll save in cash. ;)

    The rear shocks from the 8ight T are longer, that is true, but you'll need to modify your arms to get the 8ight's shocks to fit (unless you're running Flextek arms). The RC8 shocks fit with no...

    Longer front arms will change a few things and with those changes, comes new parts. For starters, you will need longer steering and camber links. For the camber links I went with ones from a Jato....

    At 2250kv, the RX8 should be just a bit faster than the 2200kv Castle system. I say "should" because it's theoretical and even though 50kv adds up, it doesn't add up to a significant amount.
