I sent my stampede vxl 4x4 into traxxas on 12/13/10. Got it back today. When I first got my truck it was very loud and made a grinding noise. There was a lot of play in the driveshaft. Now its back and the noise is a lot better. Also the driveshaft is tight. I cant even move it back and forth with my finger like I could before. The strange thing is the note from traxxas said there was nothing wrong with my truck. But they did something...Oh well its back and I'm happy. Time to bash.
