I haven't posted a build thread anywhere since my rc crawler days years ago, figured it would be fun to post one for my stampede 4x4 I've had for a little over a year. About a week ago I figure I would rebuilt it and finally ditch the VXL-3s System all together. Just got back into rc after a 5 year hiatus around may of 2012 with a crawler then an MT4-G3 which disappointed me in many ways. Bought the Pede around September of 2012 and have been happy with it since. It was ran primarily on 2s until the summer of this year then 3s from then til now. I have MIP axles all the way around to start along with tini shafts and aluminum caps. Had trenchers on desperado's but i've stripped those multiple times now so I'm ditching them for 17mm.
Heres how it sat a few months ago when I had installed a few new parts.. and dyed the chassis
Parts I had ordered when I did that (+Proline slash 4x4 body post kit)
Move on 3 months I have the car stripped down awaiting parts
Got some Traxxas aluminum rear carriers from dollarhobbyz
Then earlier today I got a few more add ons including Losi 2800kv 4 Pole motor, MIP 17mm Adapters, and RPM stablemaxx 3.2 revolvers.
I'll install it all after work tomorrow and get some pictures up, I already got the trencher tires off the stripped out desperado wheels I had from before and trimmed beads. I get paid thursday and plan on ordering a whole bunch of parts for it as I am tapped out right now (Darn bi-weekly pay) I'll Update with the parts list going into it tomorrow.
