For a mostly stock Stampede 4X4, what upgrades/adjustments are necessary for it to be ready for harder landings with bigger jumps in a backyard? (bigger = ~ 5 feet high, give or take).
I know that with offroad driving, it's better to have softer shocks, but my front shocks right now just seem way too soft to provide any sort of protection with hard jump landings. (bottoming out). Which springs and which shock oil would be recommended for a balance between offroad handling and shock protection with jump landings?
I assume that a-arms will eventually break, and will replace those with RPM when needed.
Which upgrades should I do right away prior to more jumping? In the next day or so, my RPM wide front bumper should be arriving, so that should help with accidental nose-dives...
I'm loving the Stampede, and am anxious to take it to the next level and start practicing more jump control. (without destroying the Pede)
