    The pede is the best basher

    I have 3 traxxas vehicles: Slash, stampede & T maxx. In my opinion, i like my Pede the best for bashing in the backyard. My Slash is the best on the indoor track & my T Maxx collects dust. ($7 for a glowpug-geez!) I only have 1 VXL system right now, so i took it out of my slash & put it back in my Pede. I had forgotten how much fun this truck is! I recently finished up a 1/10 scale rock crawler baja bug body that fits well. I really like the tight turning radius of this truck, especially if u don't have a big bashing spot. I had to take out the dremel & smooth out the little ribs in the battery compartment so i can use my hard case lipos. I hope to be posting pics soon when i learn how. I'm just wondering how many of you guys agree that the Pede is the best basher.

    I love my Pede, I run it in the backyard and just have a blast, I thought of getting a gas R/C or a Traxxas Rally car but what would I do with the Rally car. I can't do have the stuff with the Rally I can do with my STAMPEDE.

    First off Welcome to the forum!! Tons of good help around here!!

    I have to say I own quite a few different models myself. I always go back to the pede for all out funness. Nothing like wheelying and bashing around the yard. Plus there are tons of hopups from many different companies. Things to make it your own.

    A slash converted over to a mt with pede tires is best imo. Just my opinion though...
    Sit down, buckle up, hold on, pay me...

    Oh, ok. Yes, i'd like to see a pic of a slash monster truck! That's kinda ironic, cause i put my stock slash rim/tires on my stampede & really like it. They go well with the baja body.

    As you add more and more power to a pede, it will benefit from a longer wheelbase. The slash steering system is also beter than the outdated pede steering...

    I like the Baja! have you ever thought about putting slash tires on the front & leaving stampede tires on the back?

    I'm also curious as to why the bellcrank steering of the slash is better than the stampede steering? I have both & like both. I like the way the stampedes steering is so tight, quick & responsive. I also think the bellcrank steering of the slash is better suited to the track.

    Is it something to do with bump steer? I will say that i have had a couple of servos break on my stampede & have never had a servo break on my slash or T-Maxx, both of which have bellcrank steering.

    Less bump steer, shorter toe links are more durable, saver spring in the crank can be adjusted...

    That's only if you upgrade to the 4x4 bellcrank correct?? The stock slash uses the same design w/o a spring but with a servo saver like the pede. That was one of the best upgrades I did on my slash.

    Bought a new slash 2wd VXL last july, it has the "upgraded" 4x4 bellcrank on it stock. Think its just the VXL models tho, not sure

    I'm sorry rag6. I stand corrected by jem450r. The vxl now includes the upgraded 4x4 bellcrank. Thanks for correcting me jem.

    It works great as an upgrade on my Slash. I use an ERevo servo guard with a few mods to protect the link to the servo.

    Appreciate the correction. It does show it as an upgrade just for the VXL Slash. Guess I should look before i speak. It does note to be new, just not sure how new. LOL

    I don't see why it's used on the slash 4x4
    However I think it will help on the slash

    It utilizes a spring as the saver. Instead of stripping your servo gears this takes the brunt of the impact.

    That basic style is used on the ERevo and EMaxx too. Just in a bigger form.
