Been a basher for some time with my Stampede 4x2. Some small upgades were done including a castle sidewinder esc and brushless motor. I bought a Stampede 4x4 on Thursday and took it out for a rip this morning. Wow- am I ever dissapointed. It is very slow compared to my 4x2; both out of the hole and top end. Heck, it wouldn't even lift the front wheels off the ground to do a wheelie on pavement. It was so long ago that my 4x2 was new that I can't remember if it was slower when brand new.
One of my buddies has a 4x4 that is totally stock and it is so much faster than this one and he is also running stock batteries.I guess what I need to know is do these 4x4's break in and get going or am I going to have to step up to a bigger motor or do some other mod's? I was hoping that after spending over $400 on a new truck, it would be quick out of the box with never ending wheelies and speed.
Any advise or ideas how to make this slow pede much faster would be welcome. Of course I checked all connections and screws and everything looks ok.
