    Jconcepts lowered mounts and raptor body are on the way! I know integy has a bad rep but i've beaten on these pretty hard, they just get scraped easily.

    I'm thinking a bright orange. I was looking at getting the jconcepts over tray also but it seems.like it'd hold a ton of heat in. Any experience with it?

    Got my motor today!!! Finally had time to install it.. ran it up and down my yard/street for a couple minutes. AND WOW almost too much power if there is such thing. Went ahead and ordered xo1 diffs, robinson racing metal spur and slipper, and mip x duty driveshafts. Hopefully i won't break anything before they get here.



    With the xo1 diffs, i ordered them off a stripped new xo1, should i change the diff oil? Or do i need to, rather?

    For sure. 17mm wheels and upgrade drive shafts. They'll go pretty quickly now with the 2400.

    Already have the 17mm adapters.. just need to get wheels/tires i'd like ones that're already preglued but i don't really want the same desporado wheels i already have. Definately want to keep the trenchers, though.

    Got my tbone bumper/servo guard today. Not too happy with the looks, but i'm sure it'll look nicer with the body lowered



    And the wheelie bar..

    With that power plant, you'll want to buy the wheels and tires apart and tape them first.

    I use the 3.2 Revolver stablemaxx Rims together with Proline Trenchers 2.8 - perfect Combo but you need to do a litte dremeljob on the rims and some sissorjob on the Trenchers. There are two good howto videos on Youtube.

    You also have to remove the trenchers from the desperados. I used the baking method for this to safe the foams.

    Also I gorilla taped the trenchers.

    I am so happy with those tires / rims now. Just awesome and no more stripped hexes forever

    Wow those look sweet! Do they not make trenchers big enough to fit without cutting?

    You can put the 3.2 trenchers on the 3.2 wheel, but it's way too big for the stampede. This combo gives you a smaller sidewall with reduced ballooning and increased handling.

    Pretty hard to tell since I have a gas stove. Also you have to be really careful otherwise the foams brittle and rubber gets soft. This happened to me one time.

    What I do is set the stove to about 4 out of 8 (don't know the temp) and check the tire every 5 minutes if I can already disassable.

    Also I wrap the tires in aluminium foil like a baked potato.



    This happened to my foams one time when I let it sit too long in the stove:

    Just my input: I like to boil my tires to remove them from the wheels. You do have to be careful though, water will get inside the tires, and can hurt a little, while working the tires off. I have used this method quite a bit, and has worked great. I boil a pair at a time for about 8 minutes. However, this method totally failed on my last attempt at getting duratrax tires of their wheels. They use some serious glue!

    Guess we'll see! I can't imagine it'll be that big of a difference. There shouldnt be much friction between the two if they're meshed correctly.

    Dude stick with stock spurs because they are cheaper and with the metal ones if something goes wrong it will pass the damage to the next weakest link in the drive train........peace

    Why do so many people want the body lowered? It's a monster truck and in real life monster truck bodies sit way above the chassis. Too me lowering the body makes the truck look like a frog.

    To me it looks just silly and not appropriate. Also the gap between the body and chassis is not looking good.

    But as everything it is a matter of taste

    Yeah everyone has different taste. I grew up watching a lot of monster jam and love the way monster trucks look with the body way up off the chassis.

    Installed the metal spur and slipper ran 2 packs through it. Runs so much smoother than stock! And it doesn't make noiticably more noise? I've seen a lot of bad reviews for metal spurs because they're noisy.. mines quiter than the plastic.

    I am stoked that you are enjoying your truck dude it was just a personal taste thing with metal spurs I would rather strip a stock one over it breaking something else in the drive train......peace

    I agree with spennie. The plastic spur gear is the perfect "weak point" in the drive train. Very cheap and easy to replace.

    But the best way to prevent too much stress on the drivetrain is to set the slipper properly.
