As much luck with my Slash 4x4 MT build I thought I build another one. I really liked that the Slash 4x4 was a smaller lighter truck over my Summit and Maxx trucks.
Figured I would take it one step more and build a Stampede 4x4 Trail truck. So far I have got a NIB stampede 4x4 and ebay'd off what I don't need. I have sold off the tires, radio, motor, ESC, and battery. Trying to build this on a budget. I ahve plenty of radios batteries electronics, lying arround.
More of a slow speed trucks (10 mph top speed is fine)
I have ordered a set of Rover Rock Crawler tires on Torque wheels Probably pick up pro-line 2 stage crawler insets and discard the inner one as I am running a 2.2 tire on a 2.8 rim.
That is it so far.
What do you guys think about electronics? I want waterproof. I was thinking an XL-5 with a 21T emaxx or lathe motor. I do have a xl-5 on hand and a VXL system as well.
