    Hi dude welcome to the forum and the addiction I would go for the 3800kv because if geared correctly you could run 2s and 3s and tons of fun.......peace

    2400kv is another great choice, but needs 3s to really wake it up. I use it and have no issue with temps geared 17/54 on 3s. Runs about 38-40mph-ish. The 2400kv fits with little mods to chassis and requires a new mount for esc. The 3800kv is a drop in. Both are good popular choices...and a big upgrade over stock.

    3800 is my recommendation. It can manhandle that truck. It'll give you 45-50mph easily, which is flying in a stampede 4x4.

    I've tried larger motors in one, like the 2400. It was very powerful, but the 3800 seemed to be the sweet spot.

    +1 on this, i have the funny car 2400kv motor and a mmp. It was fun at first using 4s and watching parts fly. Now i've used castle link to detune it and mainly run 3s. But, it's great not worrying about temps even running 19/54.

    Love my 3400KV and SCT! Really took the truck to a new level! Drops right in to which was nice and it was only like $100 for the motor and ESC. I was having temp issues to and dropped to a 9T pinion. No issues now at all and crazy wheelies, non stop fun. Oh, that power did do some damage. Snapped quite a few stock axels and upgraded to MIP's.

    If your going to run 3s your temps would be lower with the 1415 2400. If you're planning on running 2s then the 1410 3800 if the way to go. Make sure your to get the mamba max pro for sure the sidewinder can't handle the 4x4 and keep low temps.

    Like everyone else has said, it depends on how many cells you're going to be running.

    I used to run only on 2S, but now I only run 3S.... that being the case, I stuck the 1415 2400kv in there. Freakin' awesome.

    A little bit of dremel work is required to get the 1415 2400kv in, but the 1410 3800kv is plug and play.

    3800 and mamba monster 2 right here, geared 13/54. On 2s you'll get 34mph on 3s 50mph.





    Ooops on that last pic.. My truck is a photo bomber.
