    Its time :( bye bye stampede

    So Ive recently become unemployed. Laid off for the winter and i have bill to pay. So she is finally being parted out. The thing that sucks is i cant post hardly anythign here because there is very few things actually traxxas on it.








    Topped it out at 57mph. Im very proud of this number due to it was still a truck. Not a rusty looking thing. Never got around to breaking 60 because i snapped the chassis in half and gave up. I'm sure i will purchase another oneday

    chassis is snapped in half. So ready to run would be out of the question. Ive been debating on buying a chassis and repairing it. But if i sell it just as the truck i wont get much im thinking. You never get how much you have put in but i have a lot of money into this thing

    Sorry to hear the news T. As far as rc's go, you had a good run with this stampede there's a whole lot of top quality parts on this truck and if it looks anything today like it does in these pics, I have a good feeling that you'll get some return on it. Farewell, bud, but hope to see you back soon.

    Well Oaks knows how much this truck means to me. I mean ive been working on this single truck for almost 2 years. Ive dumped over 1k is upgrades and repairs. He is actually going to send me a chassis so i can put a couple more packs threw it. i dont know if its a good thing though because im going to want to keep the thing. At least i have a bandit with the vxl system to sell first.

    On a side note its crazy how the only names i recognize are oaks and digger pede. I almost feel like a senior member lol

    Oh and thanks oaks again. People like you are the reason this forum is so amazing.

    Have you considered selling just some of it. Maybe putting the transmission back to stock, selling the castle system and your bandit roller and putting the VXL system back in the stampede? You could recoup a decent chunk of money that way and still keep the base of your truck.

    Just a really quick suggestion... keep your charger at least. When you do get back into the hobby at some point its one of those things youll appreciate not having to buy another one.

    Selling a stampede is a hard thing to do... I feel for you man. Leave the stampede till LAST, just in case things change.

    Generally you should get around $150 for it. They sell for about $225 new. $140-150 is reasonable I would think.
