ahh sorry must have read over it, pictures were distracting!
i opted for the tamiya PS-22 light green, looking at yours i wish i went the PS-28 one instead...

Truck is looking nice! I'm waiting for them to get my power-up kit in to swap from XL5 to VXL-3s - I love my Stampede 2wd especially after going to the MX-28 tires. :)

@D3MON
It was a bit above on the post where I painted the body. :D
And don't see it as a missed opportunity, look at it as your next paintjob idea :p
@marauder
Thanks you. :)
I haven't tried the MX28 personally, I have the Louise tires on which are great but balloon like crazy. And the next tires I'm gonna get may be the new Louise MicroFiber Tires...they don't balloon...like, at all. I putted them on in the hobbyshop for a test, and they didn't balloon at all (which is incredible for Brushless + 3S).
Oh, and this thing is nuts on brushless + 3S, have fun when you get it (although I have an other Brushless System in it, but that won't make that much of a difference) :D

I'd imagine these can balloon pretty bad, I prefer traction over anything so I always feather throttle to keep the power under control so I don't really notice it. They look very similar in pattern to your tires though. Nevermind my Mario shenanigans. It's in my office. :)

Well, I bought a 2wd for nonstop Wheelies, so that is what I do. :D
And my front tires maybe, but Louise actually has two more patters which are more similar to the MX28s (one is a bit smaller. the other even more aggressive)

So, here is my first Video with this thing (and my first driving video overall).
I have made it from a lot of short videos, that the same two friends made which made the last few pictures above, so again, thanks you two. :D

This just shows what I did with the Stampede during one 3S pack, and nothing broke (Although, my spur broke not even a pack after that when normal driving, so it is possible that it got a solid hit on this ride). The metallic sound and purple piece falling of is just my heatsink, so nothing to worry about.

Oh, and the painful ''Ahhhh'' noises are from me....this is the first run with this body, so the first few scratches hurt. :p
Well, maybe it was a bad idea to drive the first pack of the body on the skatepark. 🤣

Well, enjoy, and leave some feedback if you want to, I would appreciate it. :)

So, as I told in the last update my spur went out, soooo...

New part:
  • TRX4690 Spur 90T
The spur worked again, but not even a pack after, the Servo Saver went bye bye (to be honest, completely unexpected. I did a normal rollover/cartwheel, nothing to crazy, just a regular little accident). I still could keep driving, the steering was just waaaay of. While Inspecting the truck I also saw that the front & back skidplates are both cracked. So here we are, after 20 packs.

New Parts:
  • TRX1844 Servo Saver
  • TRX3623 Skid Plates
Yes, these are no upgrades, but like I said, I will mention any part I need (as I not only want to show you my build, but also show my impressions on the durability).

Also, if anyone knows a better good functioning Servo saver, please let me know. I just don't like the fact that this was the second one that went. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm totally okay with replacing the Servo saver if it saves the servo, but maybe there is a more durable design that still works as well?

HR Servo Saver May work. Haven’t tried it on my stampede yet though, but I do have one from my Clodbuster and they can take a beating.

Whoops-a-daisy! Should have looked before I leaped on that one, Marauder. I assure you, I would never give technical advice without looking, I just don't remember seeing that when I did the stainless steel screw replacement on my Stampede. Had to replace the brand new motor under warranty, just didn't remember seeing anything unusual compared to my Rustlers. I did that stainless kit on all of my cars.

Okay, thanks a lot for the info, I will look into this, but it looks really nice. :D
Now, this will not be a part I will get right away, but I might get it if / when the next Servo Saver goes bye bye.

Well, I am 22 packs in, and the Servo Saver BROKE AGAIN.
I was driving with a friend of mine. He was driving the Stampede and had a few spectacular rollovers, but no frontal crashes. The Servo Saver went on one of the rollovers, so I'm getting an upgraded one...

Here is a picture of my Stampede together with my Arrma Big Rock Crew Cab :D
