    Question Some qestions about the Pede 4X4

    Hi! I am thinking about buying a Stampede 4x4.
    I am almost new to the R/C hobby (My brother bought me a Traxxas slash 1/16 in '09)
    Ok, let's get started:

    1: How long (avrage) is the run time for the standard batteries?
    2: Can I do wheelies with the standard batteries?
    3: How hard can I drive it? (Jumping, bashing etc.)

    Thanks for helping!

    P.S: English is NOT my 1st language, so please report if there are any misspelings.

    Great choice for a truck... youll love the 4X4 pede.
    =With stock gearing and the included battery youll get about 25 minutes tops of average driving... maybe a bit less, maybe a bit more.
    -You CAN do wheelies with the stock battery but not nearly as well as it wheelies with a lipo... but, if you setup the slipper tighter... it will certainly wheelie
    -IMO, you can bash the 4X4 pede very hard in stock form... harder than most ever will... with a few minor upgrades it can handle just about anything you can throw at it.

    Also look into the stampede 2X4 VXL and Rustler VXL, they will be cheeper and they will require less work to keep running.
    You spelling is better than mine, and english is my only language. Just use spell check.

    Most certainly...but the real fun is flying! I must admit my 4x4 never saw it's stock battery... but on 2s lipo it was nutz! The stock battery will get you there, but for a full run of consistant crazyness then..IMO..lipo is where it's at.
    The 2x4, however, will give you more punch on the stock Nimh.

    Everything is relative. It's never going to crawl like a real rock crawler, and it doesn't have any of the main crawler features suck as locking differentials. That being said, there isn't anything that prevents you from climbing over rough obstacles slowly, and generally speaking it does have the power to do it. It really comes down to exactly what sort of terrain you're talking about crawling on and what your expectations are.
