    It doesn't look like there's much room to be gained on this truck. I'm sure you could wring out a millimeter or two somewhere, but it won't be like the 2WD where you can gain a centimeter or more in...

    Those may not fit. The battery compartment size, according to PeterV, is 142 x 48.5 x 25mm. The specs on that website aren't terribly precise; I've got one of those batteries which is advertised at...

    You seem to misunderstand the purpose of the transmission on a conventional truck like the 2WD Stampede. It's not an automatic transmission, capable of adjusting the gearing based on your speed. ...

    Eh, the landing is the tricky part. You could catch air like that with a touring car.

    I doubt it very much. It looks like the front end is totally different from the old model. Stick with RPM...

    No, I almost never drive mine around my house. The terrain is not interesting at all. I usually go to city parks and schoolyards, particularly those with lots of hills or rough terrain. It's a lot...

    The 4x4 Stampede looks like exactly the truck I've been waiting for since I first got started in hobby-grade RC - a capable 1:10 4WD monster truck (Maxx and Revo are 1:8, no matter what Traxxas...

    I think a better way to look at it is "sensored is finally catching up with sensorless." In fact, most of the new features attached to modern sensored controllers are nothing more than a sensorless...

    That doesn't mean the motor can't handle any 4x4, it just means that particular model of truck can't be geared low enough to suit that motor. The lower the gearing, the less work the motor does. If...

    Of course not. The standard Titan 12t could pull it off, and all the people saying otherwise are being overly dramatic. It's just a matter of gearing the motor low enough that it's not being...

    Why would they gear it differently than the Slash, if not lower? The only other possibilities are that it's geared higher, which would be stupid, or the same but with a slightly different...

    I'm sorry, but "new gearing to accommodate bigger tires" isn't ambiguous. There is only one possible valid interpretation for that sentence. It means they've allowed for lower gear ratios (smaller...

    Bigger tires help you float over obstacles. Smaller tires turn and accelerate more quickly. There's also a big difference in the tread pattern.

    You can divide by 1.5 to go from a 48p gear to a 32p gear with the same diameter - that is, a 48p 86t gear is roughly the same size as a 32p 57t gear. That's pretty much irrelevant, though; all that...
