    Question Thomas Pīs Stampede 4x4 x 4s Lipo

    Yes..thats the Q..i have only owned one Traxxas car erlier, and that was one of the first Revo 1/16 in Sweden ( http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...=1#post4073766 ) and that one was a REAL good car..it held up for almost everything..but im racing 1/16 cars only today, but i miss some hardcore bashing!!

    So, the Stampede 4x4, does it held up for some power?

    If i am buying the 4x4, what is the MUST upgrade for it to take some power

    Al info, or link would be real greatfull

    I was thinking of, 2,3s or maybe 4s lipo, sandpaws an all 4 corners, or Masher2000

    can you help me?

    Best regards Thomas

    Only thing you have to upgrade is the CVD'S. The diffs are the same as a Revo and handle way more power than a MERV could ever handle.

    There aren't many rims that work on the Stampede at the moment. It has a large front suspension design which requires 2.8" or larger wheels. You can run almost any short course type 2.2"/3" wheel and stock 2.8" wheel. Proline is just about to release a new 2.8" wheel!!! The only 2.2" wheel known to work are the RPM Revolver Wide offset rock crawling wheels due to their enormous amount of offset. I actually love the extra offset, it makes the truck much more stable so that's the wheels I'm currently running.

    You could also install 17mm adapters and run 17mm hex wheels.

    If you want to run 3S or 4S youll need to look into a better power system. The Castle MMP/SCT 2400 combo can handle 3S all day long and 4S if you wanted. It takes a small bit of chassis modding (nothing major, just removing some plastic) to get it to fit but IMO its the best 3S or higher setup you can run in this truck and will blow your mind in terms of power. Its worth it.

    That is a very poor motor choice for the Stampede 4x4. You will likely experience overheating similar to the stock VXL system if not worse, and for it to work at all, you would have to gear it VERY low. With a 4600 I'd start off with a 9-tooth pinion (the smallest they make that I know of) and even then you'd still have to cross your fingers and pray.

    The two main motor choices for the Stampede 4x4 are the Castle 3800kv and the Castle 2400kv, the later actually comes in a combo with the MMP. Both of those motors are 4-pole motors and have the torque required for a larger vehicle such as the stampede.

    That 4600kv motor would be a good choice for something like a really light 2wd buggy or stadium truck. There are more factors than just the KV when it comes to a motor, and generally speaking, it's the lower KV motors you should be looking for to get the power you need for a truck like the stampede. KV is only one factor in speed, with the right battery and gearing the 2400kv can be faster than the 4600kv would ever dream of.

    And you want to run the 4600kv on 4s? You're in for a big surprise...

    Be aware that the battery tray is pretty small, I would check dimensions. Also 4s is gonna be quite beastly. Might consider 3s as your everyday driver.
    I would do RPM arms, front and rear.

    Did you get 5mm pinions? I would just go for 1/8, save alot of money, and I'm not a fan of any type of reducer.

    Great setup. I run my pede with the 2400 motor geared 18/54 on 3 but that may be just a bit high. the gearing options you've purchased should allow you to run all day with no issues.
