    Most Old School Stampede on Here?

    Anyone running old school electronics on their Stampede? My sons truck is a mix of old electronics and new body.

    MC330CR Futaba ESC (circa 2001?)
    Stinger Motor
    6 year old NiMh GP3300 pack
    Recently upgraded 2018 servo to 2075.

    The speed control is still being made/sold today!



    I wouldn't imagine anyone still running anything older....Manual speed control?

    Yes, it does and works really well. It's the same price it was when I bought it.

    Futaba esc's were not known for being innovative. But you could beat on them all day long without skipping a beat. My pede used to have a MC210CB which is now in my Jr.T and still working perfectly.

    Slightly off topic, but I kept it old school with a couple of FLM goods peeking around the photo gallery thread. Gotta give back to those who paved the way

    Yeah pave built an original MSC pede and sprayed it up to as close to whats on the box as possible. Thats the only one i know of in mint condition - if i remember right he bought it before it had even been built once and just built it for his shelf.

    I have all the original parts and electrics from my old pede but the whole thing is in pieces now - i dont even like brushed ESC systems now i have tasted brushless let alone an MSC. I could put it all back together and run it if i wanted but i have enough work on my VXL pede rusty and other 2 non traxxas's im working on. What i did like about the MSC was that they wont roll down a hill with no input like an ESC will, the truck could be on any angle and it would have 'breaks' that held it there - very useful feature!!

    My middle 2 kids have Pedes that are vintage with newer improvements. One of them started life as a 3610 and the other was a 3601. Both are xl-5's with vxl gear on them and they both have the original vintage bodies. My youngest has a vintage but improved to an xl-5 Rusty. Again, with the original body. I have sold of the xl-1 esc's and the msc's as well as the 2018 servos to fellow forum members. What I like is that the parts from 1997 can still be used on the trucks today. Traxxas rocks!!!!

    Nice find. The good ol' days. All black plastic. I still have the original Stinger from probrably 2004 and I can't tell you how we abused that motor for years! Never cleaned it and it still runs to this day. Not great mind you, has a bad section in the power band but still is good in a pinch.

    Rag- Yeah they are 2.2 Imex Claw Dawgs on RPM Revolver rims. We bought the truck for $60 and gave it to my 6 year old daughter for Christmas. I then purchased an xl-5 combo, vxl links, vxl bearings and carriers, and the rims. The tires were part of a trade that I did for my Mamba Monster combo.

    I am with you on the Rusty build as I have started one, AGAIN!!! I love my Pede and the ANZA Slash was alright, but I really like the characteristics of the Rusty. My ANZA chassis sold today so I bought some Proling Dirt Hawgs mounted on Desperado rims. They are front offset of course since I will be using the Protrc suspension. Hopefully my Raptor body and Slash 4x4 wheels will sell soon so I can buy the rest of the stuff. I will keep everyone posted.

    What I started out with...





    The Parts. All working, including the Stinger. Btw... The thing gets CRAZY hott... Thats why they call it the Stinger lol.



    STage 2 of remodel





    Stage 3




    now the Old parts are put together in a Stocker... All the old electronics still work, and the body that came with it, im bashing right now. I never painted it, and it came un-painted since I purchased it with a Kit, and a Old skool Futaba FM Radio... lol. Bought it when I was 13. Its so awesome the Pede came out in 1994, yet its stronger than ever, and still sold new models.

    Original. Built it myself... its never been run. 1995... that was the first year of the stampede. Oh, it has all original electronics as well. They were hard to find, but worth it.

    Oh dear, Im correcting the surfer himself pav, 1994 was the first year of the Stampede

    Btw... Those capacitors on the MSCs. They are known to come undone easily, and if they do, the truck stops working until plugged back in. Im sure that caused alot of folks to upgrade to the yeller XL1 at the time. Thinkn the MSC was busted. lol

    U got Futaba 3003s in there ?

    Capacitors Its right there on the photo Pave showed, and in the corner of my Photo... With the white zip tie holding it to the connection wires.

    I remember braking a bunch of Castor blocks when I was 13 years old. Till I purchased my first alum ones, which at the time were Generic, Locally made Aluminum Castor blocks. I stil have one of them, and I might just have to make a necklace out of it. lol.

    Yup, your right absoloot... I mistyped that. This one IS a 1994 though. I knew it was the first year of production. (according to the manual and paperwork anyway). just didnt remember what year that was.

    Capacitors, resistors, it's all the same to this basher. lol. If you remember the movie quote: "Are you gonna make it all 220? Yeah.. 220, 221 whatever it takes."

    I dug around in my closet and found my old MSC and Trinity brushed motor I had in my old Pede. I see the capacitor you're talking about now. This sure takes me back... to about 2002.



    Trinity motor complete with the original 18t pinion. I can't remember how many times I stoned those commutators...

    Ding Ding Ding. We have a winner. Wow, what a nice truck. So jealous of this. Great job.
    The Stingers from back then seemed to be built so dang tough. We straight abused them for years and they just did not give up.

    Thanks for the post.
