    My fleet is only two trucks large. Given the amount and time I have to play, it's more than enough to keep me busy.

    Larger clutch pads so in turn a larger surface area to grab. It's not really a big deal with the VXL setup but it sure doesn't hurt. If I upgrade the power plant later I'll already be running the...

    A ways back I had a 2WD Stampede that I had for years but had seen many, many upgrades. After buying my 4X4 Stampede and re-lighting my interest in the hobby I decided my 2WD Stampede was a bit rough...

    I have both 2WD and a 4WD Stampede. I don't much care to use the 2WD one anymore. The 4WD is just a more capable truck all around. The 2WD spends too much of its time with the nose in the air, among...

    Thanks.

    Blew a shock out yesterday and bent a shaft. Luckily I kept extra front and rear shafts on hand. However, after using both spares up in 3 weeks, one on the 2WD and the other on the 4WD I...

    IDK. The more I look at it, the more I am considering picking up one when they release. It would be the perfect little backup 4X4 to go with my P2DE and P4DE.

    It's a neat truck, though I can't see a purpose for it in my stable. I'd much prefer my 4WD Stampede with low gearing and some heavy diff fluid and have the benefit of larger tires. But that suits...

    I prefer to keep the waterproof electronics in the 4WD truck. The SCT system in my 2WD truck isn't really any faster than the VXL anyway, just has more programming features and a minor increase in...

    As for bodies, I'm not sure. Probably a couple of Silverados from ProLine. But that's a ways off.

    It's a toss up between a 2013 ZL1 Camaro or a 2014 Z28.

    How about both? The two together barely add up to a Ferrari, lol.
