    You could paint a new body similar to the old one.

    Here is mine.

    Yeah, eBay might be your only hope as it's been years since that body was used. I have one also, not in great shape.

    I have one too, in pretty bad shape though. Im not sure whether to restore it or just chuck it to be honest. They are so thin that putting it on a brushless setup would mince it in one run. Very nice for a shelfer though

    Several times I've seen these old bodies in NIB lots. Usually I see them in lots of 8-10 for sale.....don't get bid on very much either.

    I have a complete, original Stampede from 2002 that's in part in my closet. I think I'll re-assemble it and take some pics to post.

    Did the stampede ever have the natural nylon color parts or was that just the Sledgehammer?

    Mine had almost all black parts including the transmission case, but the spur gear was white.

    Ya.. It was like an off white, pukey color. lol. its funny... It ran NO slipper clutch. All direct drive baby! Now a days, that would not survive brushless power systems...

    Re-building a pede, I noticed all these little differences between old pedes, and new. Real interesting. Like they used to have narrow hexs in the front, including drive shafts/axles with a shorter thread. Thats one example of new vs old. Also, the rear body mounts, looked like the front.

    The old black plastic, was just straight plastic before it was nylon reinforced. U can tell cuz its like "shinier" Than the new plastic. Which I prefer better in either color.

    The pede never had white plastic. But the sledgehammer was sold with both white (originally) and then later on in black. The sledge and pede were both available at the same time for a few years.



    Absoloot... the hexs are different and so are the wheels to make up for the difference in hex width. Like you said, lots of little differences. The rear skid plate is different as well.. as is the bulkhead I believe... its all very very small stuff... but stuff you notice as you go.

    Man, I have run into ALOT of those older rainbow bodies over the years as I buy and sell older trucks. I had about 10 of them at one time... 3 of them were nearly brand new. if you keep your eyes open you can still find them. But you may need to be willing to buy a whole truck to get the body, then sell off the truck.

    Man Pave those are nice trucks. Do you still own both or at least one of them? Very nostalgic time pieces there. I'm not so fond of the white plastics, but the black one is sweet.
