Whats up guys, Wanted to share with my social group. (Stampede Anonymous) and show what a Fed addiction can lead to. I've been doing some "catching up" as my financial situation has gone back to normal, and wanted to share with the folks whats up. The Pede is getting all new elecs, and I got two more trucks to complete. So stuff is needed. Plus a few thangs like extra parts, and stuff for the next build... lol (at least im part the denial phase right?)
Ive already showed the new batts and charger, I purchased from Senior DiggerPede, but wanted to throw it in for the effect! .. Btw.. Big Bores are super hard to find right now. They are back ordered everywhere. Found these on RCPlanet.com which is located locally. But A bit of luck has they had arrived that same day, and they had posted the "In stock" status before the truck even had arrived. But as far as getting em from Traxxas goes. They are back ordered for like a good month and a half for all distributors.
The whole view... Guess the backdrop is part of the pic, as Ive been workin on a new workspace also. Excited to have it finished! I drove THREE HOURS for that perfect table that was height adjustable, and leveling and perfect fit in the space intended.
First of two of these comin. Super excited to replace the Older Sidewinder...
As per Baldys recommendations. Venom 3300kv motor. Can handle up to 4s. On initial (desk) tests, It seems to get up to speed faster than the Vel, but it may not go up to as high of stop speed..
Also, Its a 540. But significantly smaller than the Vel. Especially since its finned, and the actual motor can is MUCH smaller. If this thing was equal size, itd blow it out of the water for sure.
Powerstokes! Funny story. Went to LHS, and they were out of Big bores. So they made me a deal on these. 80 bucks for the pair. Nothing too special, but worth not passing up. Didnt like the way they'd look on my Pede, Especially since my ladies has RPM shock guards, and I want some thangs matching. So il leave em for the next build.
These are going on my truck, and the older ones (well new older.. still in perfect condition) are goin on her truck.
The Batts as also may been seen...
For my lady. Was originally gonna get her the GT2. But... I thought about how the adjustability of the GT3 was very useful for me, and came in handy, and they were all sold out of the GT2 period. So.... I picked this one up. Anouther FlySky GT3B. Anouther option was I have a New condition, 27mhz FM traxxas radio, but the reciever alone was 30 bucks to fit in the waterproof box. This remote was 35.. NO brainer. This way i dont have a huge antenna and interference to worry about for her either. Good thing this was suppose to be a simple truck for her. lol.
Took my Traxxas wheels off, Stripped and am installin on hers. Picked up new ones for mine.
