    How do you make a stampede go faster?

    For some odd reason my Brother's stampede Stock is very slow. When he full throttles it it starts out slow then builds up only a little. Is his motor dying?
    Any suggestions on how to make it go faster

    i don't know the stock xl-5 real well but the motors are known to die quite a bit so its definitely a possibility, but i'd get a 2nd opinion before going out and buying a new one or upgrading.

    so have you had the big gear off if so your slipped clutch might not be tight enuf. or have you ever cleaned your titan motor out? you might need to get some computer cleaner
