Or will it always be a Stampede since thats what it started as?
I see a lot of people swapping chassis and bodies here. Do you still consider it a Stampede after you put a different chassis on it and a body meant for a different model? My son and I had this conversation a couple days ago. We pretty much agreed that whatever it turns into, its still a Stampede. Just curious what others that have done this refer to their vehicles as.
We're planning on picking up Slash 4x4 chassis, larger wheels/tires and using E-Maxx bodies sometime in the near future. Then usng the left over parts, slowly build up two more Stampedes.
We've just started in this hobby a little more than a month ago and its getting addicting.
I think it is all a matter of opinion but in my head it is really based off of which chassis you are using. If the chassis remains a Pede chassis then it is a Pede, if you convert it to a Slash chassis the truck is then closer to a Slash so it becomes a Slash....just my opinion.

I'm with Dad on this one. I replaced replaced quite some parts, but I have the feeling the heart is still a Stampede.
Body, wheels, arms, drive shafts, shocks, motor, ESC, and what not are not stock anymore, but for me it's still my Stampede.

Chassis for sure. Like Dad said.
