I've finally decided to build a Stampede 4x4 to bash with. I want to have a truck that I can take anywhere for some fun running and jumping, but I don't want to have a big truck like the E-Maxx. I was inspired by DiggerPede's Gatecrasher Stampede and Thomas P's Stampede, so thanks guys! So far on my list I have:
- Stampede 4x4 Roller
-Pro-line 2.8 Trenchers on Desperados
-RPM a-arms on all four corners
- Spektrum SR300 receiver
-Savox 1258 servo
-Kingz Head aluminim motor mount
-STRC aluminum bellcrank
-RPM shock towers (front and rear)
- STRC aluminum c-hubs
-RPM rear bearing carriers
This is my first traxxas 4x4 truck so I will have questions along the way, so your help is greatly appreciated. I have a few questions to start:
- How do I RIT dye the chassis? (I want it to be black)
- I purchased the slash 4x4 rear body mounts to lower the shell, but the guy at my lhs said the fronts wont work. Is this true, and if so what should I use for the front?
- What motor/esc combo would you recommend for a basher running in "nature" mainly on 2S? (I may try 3S with this truck but not now)
I will try to update the thread as the parts come in. This will be a slower build due to school and work, but fun nonetheless. Thanks for the upcoming help!
