    IMHO, not sure the driveshafts are needed if you stay on 2S LiPo. As for the motor mount and bearing adapter, check out King Headz. The bearing is larger and lasts longer/works better. I used the Traxxas aluminum parts on my Pede 4x4 and love them.

    I would get MIP CVD's in the rears if I were you. Expensive, but worth the investment.

    Also, get an "outerwears" shroud. Will definitely help get rid of grass, dirt, small rocks, etc from entering the chassis.

    Yes, the MIP CVD's are more worth it.

    The outerwears are a very nice "first" mod to do on your part since your using the stampede on snow a lot. You can also check out the JConcepts "Chassis Over Tray" if you want another alternative besides the outerwears shroud.

    Oh, the driveshafts are definately needed w/2S LiPo. I kept twisting mine and breaking U-joints on a 4200 NiMh. I've had MIPs on the rear for about 8 months and this weekend the front MIPs will be going in after tearing up one of the Integy XHDs that I had on for about 4 months. Unlike MIP, you can't repair those when they break.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There are a couple of parts that I have broken during my first few runs:

    1st mishap: Stub Axle Carriers (Front)

    2nd mishap: Golden Horizons Alum Gearbox (Connects to rear lower control arm)
    Rear Shock Shafts (Don't forget the shock oil)
    Tire glue (Running with LiPo Batteries i.e. Lots of Torque)

    Also these part (Better safe then sorry)

    RPM Gear Cover Black (Prevents dirt from getting into the gears)

    Traxxas Bumper Front Slash TRA5835 (Much better bumper protection for your Stampede)

    I have a Stampede VXL

    Front and rear arms are the same. For the MIPs you do need a designated front and rear though due to different lengths.
    Summit, ERBE X2, 4pdes, 2pdes, etc lol
