    That truck is probably around 10 years old or so.

    Generally speaking, I'd go through the whole truck from the engine all the way down to the gears in the differential. Do a complete rebuild, make sure that everything checks out, and replace whatever needs to be replaced. You'll definitely want to replace the fuel lines and the glow plug at the very least.

    The N-Stampede is an awesome truck--I love mine! I would definitely consider bringing her back to life!

    Question

    OK, I have this and I am about to get started on getting this going for him. I noticed the front wheels have bronze bushings in them and are not hex like the rears and newer rc's, is he stuck with running these or can they be converted to hex adapters like the rears?

    A spindle setup is the standard setup for many of the 2WD Traxxas Nitro vehicles (e.g. N-Stampede, N-Sport, etc.). You could convert to a hex system, but I've always just stuck with the spindle. I'd recommend upgrading to 5x11 bearings, though.

    I understand so I am basically stuck with the old rims, correct?

    You're not stuck with the factory wheels. You could convert it to the hex setup or there are also companies like RPM that make aftermarket wheels for the spindle setup.

    Nope, they didn't come wit waterproof electronics back then. You could clean it as you would like to, but you'll have to make sure to keep the electronics dry.

    Question

    Ok, let me ask this; if I take the am receiver out and use a new modern 2.4 ghz radio and receiver, is it an easy upgrade? Seamless, just plug the two servos in and I am good to go w/modern 2.4 radio setup??

    A newer radio system will work just fine.

    So keep in mind, the power for the receiver will be coming from the AA battery pack, no issues?

    I don't see why that would be an issue.
