    Stampede protrac kit question

    I have the 2nd stampede with the plastic camber links. I just ordered the protrac kit and the rpm long rod ends. However I am a big fan of the strc blue aluminum camber links. I want blue camber links. What size do I need? I read the whole protrac thread but I'm so confused. Can you guys give me a list of all the links I could use?

    There are two sizes...39mm link which is Part number 3737A and a 49mm link which is Part number 3738A

    I use the 39mm on the front and the 49mm on the rear of my Stampede and it's Protrac'd.

    Let me give you a really valuable piece of advice. DONT buy aluminum camberlinks. They are NOT strong enough. A set of traxxas VXL camberlinks are strong and cheap. Sure, they aren't blue. But colored bits aren't so pretty when theyre busted.

    This is very true. The VXL links are made of steel instead of aluminum like the blue ones. Matter of fact one of my blue links is bent right now.

    Just the roll cage for now. Ran a Son-Uva Digger body since they first came out then I got bored with it so I just decided to try out Roll cages on my Stampede and Rustler. I tend to switch things up when I get bored.

    The only time I use the aluminum links are on my rustler but that's to save some weight and for speed runs had a red set on my pede and off a 5 foot jump it busted two of them

    G-Rustler, what wheels and tires do you have? Also, what gears do you run?

    Those are HPI Wheely King wheels/tires called the "Mud Thrasher"

    I usually run 3s lipo on 19/86 gearing.

    I just bought some proline f11s (2.8) premounted with super swampers. I'm not too happy with them. They weigh .75lb heavier then the stock setup causing my motor to overheat. Running new vxl with 19/83 gearing and 2s lipo 5000mah 25c.

    Try going up a few teeth on the spur gear, that's a pretty tall/heavy tire setup for that gearing

    Hello,
    Can you tell me the best store to buy Traxxas in New York?
    I'm Brazilian. I want to buy a Stampede model. I don't know where to buy.

    Thank you for your help.

    How are the swampers in terms of ballooning? I have used the Trenchers and the grip is awesome, but they balloon like crazy. Wondering if the closed cell inserts helps on the swampers?

    I haven't had a chance to really run it fully yet. Just ran it about 10 mins the other day. Hope to run a few packs this weekend. I'll keep y'all posted. I changed the gearing to 16/83 so we will see how the temps change. Thanks for the advice SirioRevo.

    Fish, this actually sounds like a great idea... Got any pics of that? Does it give you any clearance issues?
