    So much fun!!!



    Yet so dangerous



    Now I REALLY need better tires!!! Currently I have it geared (13/50) to 53MPH with 30% throttle punch and 3/8 turn out on the slipper clutch.
    LOL what happened? Did you reverse right into your foot?

    I am about to order the same pack, was looking for something decently priced for a 3's battery, thanks for the post it directed me to what I was looking for. As well I want a really good 2's for when my sct 3800 comes in. How's this or is that to many "C"?

    I am going to probably sell the SV2 ESC, and most likely my VXL system and then get the MMP to run those 3's packs, I also have a 11.1v Venom 4000mah 20c.

    We were comparing slash bumpers, RPM to Traxxas slash bumper. I know your all into the truck today lol. R you throwing tires yet? Mine are starting to tare away from the rim.

    That's a pack I plan on getting at some point. There's no such thing as to many c..... the least I would get is a 5000mah 30c, for a CC combo. Less than that, and you may find yourself reaching the batteries limits on now and then. With a vxl, a 4000 25c is the smallest I used. For the vxl, a Promatch 5000 25c would be fine but, if your getting a Castle system, you may as well get the better battery to feed it like the one you linked.

    I would have gotten a MMP but I like the idea I can pop in into the ERBE if that one fails Too can NEVER have too many "C's" Better more then you need then not enough.

    I already threw a tire on 2s, messed up the plastic hex so I got the Tekno aluminum ones as a replacement. RPM wheels seem to be holding up so far.

    Having a hard time deciding on Pro-Line Mashers 2k or Dirt Hawg II's. I wanted to keep this thing a stadium truck but my urge to bash it is getting the better of me...Maybe a "Mid"-Revo type of truck for bashing? Bigger than a MERV but smaller than the ERBE.

    Nice, were gonna have a bunch of people raving about promatch in here lol. I have to wait a few weeks for a house bonus before I do some more "big" shopping. I can maintain the truck without making waves but I also wait for the right time to spend bigger bucks. Keeps the piece, ya know, can't wait to jump on the band wagon. I've been buying Promatch for a year now and my batteries and charger really do a great job.

    I picked up a 680b+ charger from Promatch a while back with the A30 power supply, the bigger one he has. It works great. I bought a second set up from him recently but just the combo deal for $135 I think. Well anyway, it comes with the 680b and A20 power supply. This combo will charge at 10 amps all day. I got the big ps the first time because I didn't think the A20 could push the full 10amp charge, but it does. I charge them at ten amps once in a while if I don't have a ton of time to bash.
    I don't now of any other charger that will be at your door for $135 and charge/balance at 10a AND it has lots of functions to boot.

    Pro-Line Mashers 2k on 2.2" RPM Wide offset Revolvers. They are 5" tall and ~2.4" wide, they are actually the same width as the tires I had on previously. Wish they were wider.

    Oh Ok sweet. I have those rims lol. Just need to glue my mashers to them. Have those as well as the 2.8 Badlands. By the way nice looking pede dude. That is sick I need a new body even though I just got a brandnew one. And I hate it LOL. I got the parma gravedigger 1/10th scale. And well, simply put. I think it's ugly and I don't even want to use it haha. If I do I will just because it's stronger. Need to buy a new body though.

    I think it looks wider because the suspension is lowered a hair (~5mm) and the body is low as possible.

    I'm sorry as I am sure it's somewhere in the thread but to lazy at the moment to skim through it. What body is that? Is that the crowd pleaser?

    Run Review:

    1. Speed = Check! Easily +50MPH
    2. Power = Double Check! Even with 30% punch control and a slipper 3/8 turn out had globs of power everywhere.
    2. Traction = Much better!!! Pro-Line is the BEST!
    3. ESC Temp = Fan off the entire time.
    4. Motor Temp = Max 170 degrees (*though most of the time about 130*-140*)

    *Keep in mind ambient was 85* today in sunny San Diego

    Right now I'm totally happy with the build. I got it to where I wanted it at Only other notes is the swaybar isn't doing jack...I need to find a stiffer bar.

    + RPM Slash 4x4 rear bumper


    Just in the nick of time. Stock bumper (*actually the wheel bar mount) broke off at the bottom mounts and body taking on a lot of damage.

    Yep, it ain't pretty, but it works.

    I'm having alot of trouble fighting off the Masher urge. But I really think a 30series option will be coming.

    The mount is a revo brushless edition esc mount. You can pinch a screen in between the mount and esc to keep debris out of the fan.

    haha...not really. Just bought a used Losi Ten-Te coming in the mail next week Depending how well that goes will determine the fate of the Stampede. But in all honesty, there isn't much more I want to do with the Stampede.

    Options are:
    1. Keep the Ten-Te
    ____a. Sell the Stampede
    ____b. Convert the Stampede into a Slash or BackSlash
    2. Sell the Ten-Te and keep the Stampede

    Durability! Thicker shock shafts, aluminum bodies, and stronger shock caps.

    Looks! = pretty

    Forgot to mention I replaced the Ten-T shock pistons with ones from their tuning set. I currently running #4's in the rear and #5's in the front with 35wt oil all around. The rear is still a bit too stiff, I ordered the silver springs (softest) and going to try to run them in the rear.

    I'm sure the AEsc4x4 would mount up...problem is finding a set right now.

    Sorry I don't have an exact measurement on the Ten-T shocks, but they were about 2-3mm longer then the stock shocks. I internally limited them 4mm all around so now they are about 1mm shorter then stock.

    You running the fronts on the front and backs on the back?

    I am thinking of buying a set for the wifeys Slash VXL or possibly swapping my P-L's to her slash and the Ten-T's on my Pede
