I am a new owner of a 4x4 stampede vxl. I bought the truck brand new along with a 5000mah 3s 20c dynamite lipo. I love the truck, been running it pretty hard on grass and asphalt and so far nothing has broke, but I need more. What can I do to make this truck faster? Motor/esc swap, 4s, gearing or ???? I know I will end up breaking stuff with more power but as things break, they will be replaced with stronger parts. I plan to use the truck on grass/asphalt and dirt. So what do you guys recommend to make a bad stampede? Give full detail on motor/esc/gearing/lipo etc.
if thats not fast enought for you on 3s, you need an XO-1!!
I have the 2wd Stampede and alot of guys tell me to replace all bushings with bearings (which I will be doing soon). Have you done that ?
E-REVO MMM - Stampede 4x4 6s/3s
his truck is a VXL 4x4, his truck already has those options - but, yes, it will CERTAINLY make a difference if you are using bushings!!
I'm not talking about increasing the power a small amount. I want to see a difference. I'm ready to spend some bucks on a motor/esc/lipo change or ??? I just don't know which to get to make it bad.
There are many options available it really depends on how much of a boost in performance you are looking for. One of the most popular set ups for this truck is a MMP/2400kv motor set up run on either 3s or 4s lipo.

if you want it faster get the castle 1415. if you want it uncontrollable get the mamba monster esc with 2200kv or 2650 kv motor
MMM 2200 kv with 2-3S in series and you got one bad truck!
God is good.

Just make sure the rest of the truck can handle the power or it will costs lots dude....peace
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
The RX8 2650 would be my first choice and the MMM 2650 the second. I run both. You can run 3 or 4s with either, you'll need to upgrade the driveshafts and wheel hexes. I would highly recommend going to 17mm hexes and wheels with this type of power but I have been ok with Badlands and the 12mm hexes running 3s with the MMM 2650...
Sorry to change the subject but rastus what rim and tire do you have on that it looks awesome.oh and i have the 2400 and mmp in my pede 4x4 night and day difference 3 and 4s.
