    Defiantly. This http://www.spcracing.com/index.php?productID=153 whenever they get some. Plus http://buy.traxxas.com/product_info....oducts_id=9155 Then you'd be set. I run this every weekend. I should actually pay attention to how long i can run, but i don't.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    2s Lipo and as much C Rate as you can get. Obviously check the dimensions.

    I personally prefer lighter Lipos eg. 4000 mah because making the truck lighter makes it faster and more durable.

    Depends On how you drive also. I bash, so I want longer run times and don't care about the weight.

    I wish I would hav asked this question a few months back. Having went straight to 3s, cost me a LOT of money and little run time with my pede.

    To my mind a Stock Stampede 4x4 VXL is not really build for 3s. The Motor and ESC get much too hot and the drive shafts are too weak but absolutely perfekt for 2s Lipo.

    If you want to go 3s you need another ESC/Motor and Mips (at least at the rear)

    2S is a good place to start like the guys said and then get use to it and get the aluminum bearing adapter part number 6893x its a must.And then upgrade driveshafts if you want to run 3s or plan on putting a more powerful motor and esc in .....peace
    Famous last words...watch this!!!!
