    Its as good as they say it is.

    Well finally came across the right deal this weekend. I found a guy through the local classifieds looking to trade RC's. I ended up giving him my Flux xs in return for his Pede 4X4. Mine came with a near complete roller for parts, no battery,no charger. From him, I got this



    Ive wanted a Pede 4X4 for ever. I read soooo many good reviews on it. My Traxxas RC trucks went in this order of purchase, many I had at the same time

    Tmaxx 3.3
    Revo3.3
    Stampede 2wd Brushed
    Tmaxx 3.3
    Slash 4X4 Vxl
    Mini Revo 1/16 Vxl
    Revo 1/10
    Stampede 4X4

    And I'll tell anyones whos interested this thing is wicked. Not the fastes no, but sure it a blast to drive and bash with. I purchased this H2 body and painted it on Saturday. Turned out pretty good. I also installed RPM front bumper, bearing carriers and lower A-Arms and wheelie bar. I installed these 2.8 Mashers too. For now running 2s 5000Mah Lipo and havin a blast with it I highly recomend this truck. Traxxas we salute you

    That's great that you found a truck that you wanted. The p4de will be a blast to drive around and bash with. I really like the mashers and the hummer body, they make the truck look aggressive! If you wanted to continue the black look, you could dye your chassis black with some RIT dye. Have fun with it!

    That looks great. Nice trade! When you say it's not the fastest, that is only limited by your wallet

    Nice trade dude. Awesome well built all purpose RC. Now slap a proline protrac kit on it and you will really enjoy it that much more. Take care and have a blast!

    Hmmmm, it seems a Summit 1/10 is missing from that list... Enjoy your pede, it looks really awesome! What motor/esc is in it? I'm guessing the stock VXL?

    What does the protrac do ? Widen the rear wheel stance ?

    Yeah stock 3500 vxl / esc for now. Gonna save for the MMM for my E-Revo first, and yeah thought about the Summit a few times

    Protrac gives widens the front and rear of pede, but gives you a square track width to wheelbase ratio. Not exactly the best setup for such a short wheelbase.

    I don't think it is. People will talk about stability but add another 5 inches to the width and it will be even more stable.

    I got mine fairly level, mounted it slightly differently to suit my posts - but had to loose some of the front fenders to go with the trenchers:
