    Red face Specialized rear washer for the stampede

    Hello everyone.
    First time poster here.
    I don't see much movement in this forum but its worth a try anyway.
    I created a specialized washer to deal with the problem of the rear holes getting damaged fairly quickly after the first few tumbles.
    You can see them here.

    Currently I'm going through a testing period to see how well they hold, but I wanted to check if any of you guys would be interested in those so that I can put them for sale in the near future.
    Any input is appreciated!

    Nice fabrication, 3D-printer?

    Most of us just use some drywall tape and Shoe-Goo on the back side of the body to keep it from ripping out.

    Deffinatly look like something traxxas should already sell. Good job. I use regualr white plastic washers, they dont contour to the body well.

    Yeah, I watched those Shoe-Goo tutorials on youtube. Since traxxas provides washers for the front holes but the back holes are the inconvenient shape they are, I decided to make a washer that can take advantage of that shape and distribute the impact forces evenly without damaging the plastic around the hole. This should also work as a quick patch/reinforcement on an already damaged hole. Yes the washer is 3d printed.

    That's a great idea and execution!

    I went the cheaper/easier route of moving the posts in about 3/8" and drilling new holes because of the way the factory set is.

    DennisNC, brilliant invention! Is the plastic dyeable? How about clear plastic?

    I previously just used black rubber washers, Shoe Goo and cuss words.

    Nice! Its to late for the Body I have. I ripped massive holes in it. Its sad because it made me lose Pins. I need to buy a new body, but not until I find something to keep it from ripping. I might be interested in a pair.

    Maybe offer it in black or white if possible, and with a matching regular washer for the front?

    yeah when I got the stampede and first tried to put on the supplied washers I was like what the heck. I used a set of dykes and trimmed the factory washers till they fit over the post. But yeah I would want a set too.

    I have a thread on this stuff from a while back. It is what I use on the inside. I am honestly telling y'all. This stuff i great for so many different applications. Not only your RCV, but many things outside of the sport. I have fixed 3 speakers that came apart at the seams. Be a rubber like substance, it moves with the speaker. Good as new. It drys to a rubber like substance and is INDESTRUCTIBLE. Awesome stuff. Its real purpose is for filling expansion joints on buildings. Can be found online or at any roofing supply company. If you buy some you truly, will not be sorry you did. My 35 cents worth. comes in different colors too!

    Very good idea!! I'd use them for sure on my 2 Stampedes I've destroyed so many bodies and I just use the white washers but they do not fit that well and when the body is getting really bad it still pops off.
