    It doesn't hurt to have a few extra spur gears on hand.
    They do wear out from time to time and it stinks to have your day cut short by a $3 part.

    That looks awesome!
    I always wanted to put a VW bug on my pede.
    Sorry, but I just might have to copy your idea(I promise I'll paint it different though)

    I haven't tried it with those other models but I'd bet that it wouldn't be compatible with any other models.

    As far as the stiffness of the wheel compared to the traxxas TX, it's about the same...

    The 5700kv has plenty more torque than I could use or even need in a pede.

    It's a little different than the stock one, plus it's aluminum.
    I'm not much for modding a TX but for just $2.80, I couldn't pass it up. Plus I was ordering something from the place anyways.

    I buy all my parts from Towerhobby or thetoyz.com, and occasionally liquidRC.
    thetoyz.com and liquidRC has the faster shipping, but thetoyz has a better selection than liquid.

    Looks great, I lowered mine too with the slash front body mount, and did something similar to what you did with the rear.
    I agree that the stock stampede does look ridiculous with the body so high.

    If you use a 3s I'd gear it way lower, maybe 12 or 13t pinion to start.
