    IMHO, not sure the driveshafts are needed if you stay on 2S LiPo. As for the motor mount and bearing adapter, check out King Headz. The bearing is larger and lasts longer/works better. I used the Traxxas aluminum parts on my Pede 4x4 and love them.

    I would get MIP CVD's in the rears if I were you. Expensive, but worth the investment.

    Also, get an "outerwears" shroud. Will definitely help get rid of grass, dirt, small rocks, etc from entering the chassis.

    Yes, the MIP CVD's are more worth it.

    The outerwears are a very nice "first" mod to do on your part since your using the stampede on snow a lot. You can also check out the JConcepts "Chassis Over Tray" if you want another alternative besides the outerwears shroud.

    Oh, the driveshafts are definately needed w/2S LiPo. I kept twisting mine and breaking U-joints on a 4200 NiMh. I've had MIPs on the rear for about 8 months and this weekend the front MIPs will be going in after tearing up one of the Integy XHDs that I had on for about 4 months. Unlike MIP, you can't repair those when they break.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There are a couple of parts that I have broken during my first few runs:

    1st mishap: Stub Axle Carriers (Front)

    2nd mishap: Golden Horizons Alum Gearbox (Connects to rear lower control arm)
    Rear Shock Shafts (Don't forget the shock oil)
    Tire glue (Running with LiPo Batteries i.e. Lots of Torque)

    Also these part (Better safe then sorry)

    RPM Gear Cover Black (Prevents dirt from getting into the gears)

    Traxxas Bumper Front Slash TRA5835 (Much better bumper protection for your Stampede)

    I have a Stampede VXL

    Front and rear arms are the same. For the MIPs you do need a designated front and rear though due to different lengths.
    Summit, ERBE X2, 4pdes, 2pdes, etc lol

    Hey guys, Here is an update of what i have now for my pede,...

    Still Waiting for my King Headz and Proline Badland tires,

    1.? Are the stampede 4x4 and slash 4x4 MIP CVd kit same? will the MIP for slash4x4 fit for pede4x4?

    2.? And I need some help with you guys? Cause i dont know how to mount my GoPro cam on my pede? any suggestion? Help?

    3.? And i got some problem with my new Traxxas 3s lipo 6400mah, when i am using it, fully charged, when im pulling the throttle slowly like trying to be a crawler my esc blinks red slowly and no more power on my motor, just for the steering, i need to unplug and plug it then green light again, and when i try to pull it slow, red led comes out again, but using it in pull throttle and high speed seems to be ok?

    need some help guys,.....

    i did contact traxxas via email, and they ask me to sent them my motor and esc for repair and inspection, but it will cost me $100, and? i will be out on bashing for long, so i am still looking for any help that will not need sending my motor and esc to traxxas,

    And next thing to do is make an account on photobucket so i can show and share my pede with you guys,....

    I would have to retract my statement about the stock driveshafts. I put Proline Trenchers on my truck and on the 3rd run, snapped an axle! I just out another stock one on it for now until I can fund the MIP's.

    What's the "C" rating on the battery. Some people will say it doesn't matter, but I had a boat load of problems with a 20C. Swapped it out for a 30C and it's worked perfectly every since.
    Also check your connector to make sure you are making good contact. I have a Venom battery that is arcing. Will be buying a Traxxas connector from LHS soon.

    Happy Bashing!
    Bash'em, then Bash'em, then Bash'em some more!!

    25C, its the traxxas 3cell lipo, 6400mah, so it should work just right cause its made for pede right?

    before (Traxxas steel constant velocity shafts

    after MIP CVD X-Duty Shafts, F/R



    i did some DIY for my pede, exhaust or intake fan installed with my over tray, no connector to be connect or disconnect, simple put your overtray and the fan will work.

    Did you move the pin to the "other" hole? The one closest to the pressure plate? With exception of the driveshaft yoke/outdrive on the right of the pic (I'm running a Tekno driveshaft), it should look exactly like this following revo-spec mod (note last pin-hole to the left of the pic is vacant):

    here

    the traxxas steel constant shafts works great, but in some point they also have great weakness, pins doesnt have any hex screw, only rubber cover holds them, once the rubber pops up, game is over for the shafts

    Just disassembled mine. It rubs a little on each side when not braced/supported by the other. Does it rub when connected to the driveshaft and chassis?

    yes it does, the shafts looks like it can get more deeper into the diff assembly, so it would rub more badly and worst if running
