    If you just get the replacement caps, and not the extendable body posts, you will lower your body by about the size of the posts. Works really well, and really easy to do - and pretty cheap as well.

    Very happy with MIP X-Duty's. No issues in the 2 Stampedes that have them. Take your time putting them together, make sure everything is aligned right and let the thread lock cure properly.

    Suggestions for a better body mount?

    My kids and I both have issues with the pins to mound the bodies - as well as the battery. I've modded the battery holder to use velcro, but the body mounts remain an issue. Is there something...

    I've had good luck with Boca econo sealed bearings and am also trying some Yeah Racing stainless bearings - also very budget friendly.

    I believe some play is required to deal with chassis, especially on direct front or rear impacts, or bad landings.

    Anyways, our 2 stampedes have a lot of play there as well and it hasn't been a...

    So could we! Would want to add some more lipos to our collection, and I've been eyeing a slash to go with my kids stampedes - after a few upgrades I really like how the hold up compared to my XS.
