After eye balling the 4x4 Stampede since it's introduction I have always talked myself out of it. Either because I wasn't in the hobby at the time, or I wanted something else, etc...
Well, after working 51 hours overtime this last pay period and later finding out I apparently received a raise a month ago and didn't notice until today...which shows how much I pay attention to the pay stubs...I decided it was time for a gift to myself for all that hard work
Stumbled into the LHS, asked him what they were selling 4x4 Stampedes for. He's pulls it straight off the shelf and sets it right on the counter in front of me.
SOLD! I say, lol.
I could have saved a deal of money ordering it online but my local shop has been in business with the same people behind the counters since 1981...and they have been so good to me, I had to just spend the extra and get it now and support them too.
And. I. LOVE IT. My other RC, a 2WD Castle SCT powered Stampede is down with a bad servo saver but had a hot battery, so I immediately set the VXL to LiPo and hit the yard. Very happy.
Will post a couple pics later Any recommendations for starting mods feel free. I don't plan on running it on 3S, if that makes a difference. Given the space I have 2S and 30MPH in my trucks is plenty.
