    Awesome Synnergy, that is great help. Slick Rustler! Is that the Arrma Typhon body on it in the last pic? Thanks for the help!
  2. Best wing mount for a Rustler buggy conversion?

    Hey ya'll, I've been itching to convert my Rustler VXL to a buggy look. I've seen various wing mount options, from Losi to HPI Hellfire but I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for. It also seems...
  3. Can I charge NiCd batteries with the EZ Peak Plus?

    Hey all,

    I have the EZ-Peak Plus, and know it states that it is only for Nimh/LiPo batteries. But I bought an old Jato 3.3 off of a friend, and the EZ-Start system came with an old NiCd battery....

    Jato 2.5 wheels/tires?

    Hey all,

    I'll be getting an old Jato 3.3 from a friend in a few days, and it still has the Anaconda tires it had when he bought it. I've heard these aren't all that good for off-roading which is...
  6. Is it just me or is the MERV more durable than the ERBE?

    Hey all,

    Been a big fan of the Revo platform since the original 2.5R version came out. I bought a 3.3 years ago when the new engine first came out, but being young at the time I didn't realize...
  7. Pede4x4 - brushed/brushless differences in the two trucks?

    Hey all, I'm looking at getting a Stampede 4x4 and happen to have a spare Velineon system laying around. I was thinking of getting the brushed version to save some dough and put in my VXL. Are there...

    Chet I love that idea. I'd say at most I'd be driving two trucks at once with my girlfriend and I racing, so if I got a TQi receiver I'd be good to go. Thanks much!

    jcpede, yeah I'm not proud of it. Haha I actually gave it to my dad hoping he'd get into the hobby and I don't remember which one of us actually put it out there but either way it wasn't the greatest...

  11. Old Traxxas Rustler - Transmitter only works to about 20 feet?

    Hey guys, I have the old Traxxas Rustler from around 2006 (not the original from the 1990s). It sat on my porch and was slightly exposed to the elements for, oh, only about 3-4 years or so. ;) I...

    Awesome, I didn't realize there were so many options.

    Swamibar looks good, but I got a question (maybe dumb) - will I have to remove the rear skidplate to install it? The four holes to install...

    Aftermarket wheelie bar?

    So I broke off my Stampede VXL's wheelie bar at the skate park the other day, and it was a huge pain having to click back into place all the time anyway. Any recommendations for a good upgrade? I...

    Stampede VXL throttle comes and goes

    Got a used 'Pede brushless from a friend for very cheap. Everything ran great for about a week, but now when I first turn the truck on I get steering, but no throttle. No sound from the motor or...

    Gas powered (not nitro) RC?

    Hey all,

    I remember reading an article a few years back in RC Car Action or RC Driver about gasoline-powered RC cars/trucks expecting to make a big come back and become the "next big thing". With...

    Great, thanks so much for the help everybody. Turns out the used Stampede has its rear shocks mounted on the furthest mounting position, so perhaps adjusting those will help a little - I'll also put...
  22. Rear Stampede shocks too squishy - nose dives during jumps

    Hey all,

    Less than a week after getting a Stampede VXL and LOVING it, I met a guy who sold me his old 'Pede XL-5 (upgraded to vxl motor) for dirt cheap. Needed some work, but I have it up and...

    Cool, thank you all for the replies. You confirmed my suspicions haha. I have taken my Pede to the track just to play around, and you're right it is indeed a blast just to drive around. Hard to make...
  24. Can the stampede be viable as a race truck?

    Hey all,

    I've been in the RC hobby for a few years, but know next to nothing about racing - so if this is a dumb question, you had your warning. ;)

    Most of the RC racing I hear about is...
