So i bought my stampede back in January of last year i believe. It started its life as a Xl-5 but is now inches away from being a full vxl model.
Whats been done:
RPM Trans cover
RPM camber links
RPM front a-arms
Wheel bearings all around
I had it looking like my actual truck for a while
Anyways lately I've been debating a couple of things
Buying a slash 4x4 roller and using the electronics from my pede to the slash, then selling the rest
or continuing further and making it better.
As you can see i have an emaxx. Good and bad have came with purchasing it, good as its a blast to drive (minus the drive time), bad as in i want my stampede to be more like my emaxx. Its nice not having to get up every 5-10 min and get the emaxx out of tall grass. So naturally having the emaxx has made me say whats the point in having a pede if i have the maxx.
Now the pede was my first real RC so i have a special bond with it. This is why im not just jumping and selling it. So i was wondering if people could help me out with suggestions on upgrades, mods, etc so i could re like this pede.
Now i know theres tons of threads out there on upgrades for the pede but this is more of a build, peoples opinions,ideas and questions for MY pede.
MY next purchase is a 2.4 system
1)How much would a pede with my set up be worth? i have another full roller that would come with it.
2)I see this protrac upgrade. How does everyone like it? With the addition length of the rear a-arms would i have to buy a different set of cvds? I was thinking about going with the protrac upgrade with the powerstroke shocks.
3)I figure one reason my emaxx doesnt get stuck it because the kind of tread it has. What would your recommendations be for a tire with more grip? Same size or bigger, i think these small tires on a pede look horrible (opinion)
4)I would also be looking for a good tire for a dirt track. I went to a track last summer a couple times and the slash guys were pretty impressed how i could keep up, usually people with pedes only bash.
