Good morning forum! I have a few questions I need answered please. Forst off let me say I bought a used Stampede 2wd. All I know about it is it has the Xl-1 Esc if that can tell you how old it is. Anyways I upgraded the Motor and esc. I bought the EZ run 60a/ 4000kv motor. 8.5t. I honestly don't know what any of those specs mean. Im just bashing with this thing. But what I need to know is.
1.) Do I need to upgrade anything else on my truck like new pinion gears or anything like that. I currently have a plastic pinion gear ( i don't even know how many teeth their are).
2.) What about spur gear? Mine is currently bowed/bent. It still functions though. This is also plastic.
3.) What gearing should I use? I'm more worried about longevity in the motor. I don't need it to go as fast as possible. I obviously want it to go fast though.
I am going to upgrade the battery to Lipo in a few weeks. Is there anything I should know about with this? I know I need a lipo battery and charger and solder the traxxas connectors on the battery. Other than that is it just plug and play.
4.) Final question. Im getting my son a Stampede he is only 6. He wants the Grave digger Monster Jam model. Would I be better off getting him the regular stampede model? I heard the Monster Jma ones don't come with as good of Radio transmitter and some of the parts are cheaper to help keep cost down. What do you guys think?
