    Sticky: Jumping and Bashing the old Nitro Stampede.

    I put a couple of tanks through it the day I filmed this. That hard landing at 0:40 happened early on and it knocked the exhaust header loose. After that the engine kept getting leaner. It wasn't...

    The E-Maxx is a fair bit heavier than the 1/10 models that system is used in. If you're not running heavy tires and you go with a high gear ratio for more acceleration and less top speed it might...

    The 40 series tires Proline makes - Mashers, Trenchers, Big Joes - are a bit wider and have a more aggressive tread pattern which would help with traction.

    I would look into a Savox servo. I have an SA-1230SG in one of my 1/8th scale trucks and it has no problems turning the wheels.

    I run the standard traxxas glow plugs. After 5 gallons of fuel I'm only on my 3rd plug. I replaced one after the break-in process and another a few gallons later.
