    I just got a Stampede too! what all have you had to replace so far? I swapped out the stock chassis for the slash one for a longer wheelbase and added the swaybar kit. If you decide to run 3S be ready to replace the driveshafts!

    It is NOT water proofed im sorry to say man. I had mine through 5 puddles and fried the Rx, I had checked and tightened the case, but thats by far not the worse part of this truck. if you have not yet done broke driveshafts then buy new ones. broke the first SET on 3s witch i can under stand, but the last 2 SETS were on 2s. MIPS is what im going to buy, If you go with these remember to put blue thread locker on them and check them before and after each run. I love the truck but after 3 stock driveshafts in 2 runs im going to say I might not be buying traxxes anymore. Its not that they are a bad product........Its just i am sick of paying $500 for a brand new truck and then putting $130 in it just to drive it more then 20 mins lol

    I can honestly say my driveshafts faild due to my hard driving but Im going to be upgrading to the steel driveshafts. And I have had mine completely submerged several times with no problems except the tires being weighed down by water lol

    Yah dont know what it is with my traxxes trucks. I cant seem to get good ones lol. My slash was fine. water proofing as great and I broke the shafts due to a lack of driving skills. lol. Now the brushless motor gone and the diffs are gone. have had that one 2 months This one just seems to be a piece of crap. Oh well I am using it to get a few friends into the hobby so it will be there problem as soon as i make it a sound truck that will stay together. lol

    Weird had mine right under water although I was running 2s and never let it stop. ill see if madaddvent got a video of it. Water came right over body look like a submarine. lol As for braking stuff after running it in to only pole. lol Only pole in 500miles of me I trashed steering bellcrank , housings differential front, bulkhead front.. good news is it only cost about 20$ to repair all..also burned up set of spur gears didn't mesh them right and tried catwalking with it.. So haven't replaced anything that I didn't brake my self.. Cant blame traxxas for my bad driving lol once I do brake things im going to try replace them with aluminum and rpm parts. any upgrade info is good info

    Ive ran mine into some deep muddy water at a ditch area near me that I like to run in and it still works perfectly! I destroyed 3 driveshafts and blew 3 tires off the rim last night when I was bashing with 3S ordered up the steel driveshafts. I really suggest getting Proline 2.8 Trenchers they are great youll be surprised just how much more traction youre losing with the stock tires! Also make sure you tighten up the slipper clutch mine went lose on me a few days ago. This is my Stampede 4x4 VXL, I switched over to the Slash 4x4 chassis to make the truck a little longer.

    looks good, I like how body sits on it.. Now u have me thinking lol.. I haven't tried running 3s, still just running 2s. I seen a guy who had 3s in his slash 4x4 and it was pretty much uncontrollable.
