    stampede semi-crawler conversion

    I'm very new to the rc world. I just got a stampede 2 weeks ago and I love it. I'm a college student so it gives me stuff to do on my free time. I want to know what upgrades I can do to make it more crawlable. I am not looking for a major crawler im looking for something that will still do about 30mph but still climb a lot of obstacles and be able to keep up to a point with an actual crawler. I am looking for suspension upgrades that will give it more height and more flex. I know that the stampede has great upward travel but not any downward travel. Also more torque power to help climb stuff. Price is not a major factor because i can save up for the stuff but I would like prices of this stuff to be reasonable, like a best bang for your buck idea. Thank you in advance for any post and ideas.

    If you get a sensored brushless motor, you will have all the low speed power that you could ever want. A Castle Creations Mamha Max Pro with a Novak or Tekin brushless motor and lock your differentials will turn your truck into a crawler.
