So I've been using my Traxxas Stampede 2wd more and more. I'm really enjoying it, and I guess I forgot how fun RC can be. I've been reading a lot on the Ascender, and will be making a purchase in the next few weeks. Hopefully someone can answer this question for me. As fun as crawling looks, I don't know just how much of it I will be doing. I'm more apt to trail run, and run it on dirt roads, paths, and loose gravel/dirt parking lots. I'm quickly finding the limitations on the 2wd Stampede with the stock tires. I'm planning to buy some better tires for it. So, is something like the Ascender or SCX10 II going to work for the type of terrain I've pointed out? All the videos I've seen of the Ascender are of it crawling. I guess I'm just concerned that what makes it a great crawler, may not make it a great trail rig. Any suggestions or advice?
