    Lightbulb 2wd stampede suspension info?

    I was wondering if someone could school me on what characteristics you get handling and traction wise by adjustment changes in shock position,softer dampen, stiffer dampen etc. I'm new to rc and hooked, I've learned a ton in 2 months but have had trouble finding info on 2wd suspension setups.

    To elaborate I just got a 2wd stampede after driving a 4wd slack for 2 months, needed some wheelies what can I say. Anyway I want to know the effects of changing the diff shock positions and stiffness on this 2wd bohemoth. I'm don't know if I need to adjust anything but if I did I'd like to know what I'm doing a lil bf I do it

    Lemuod gave great advice. Terrain, tires, driver expectations, etc. directly influence suspension setup. For my P2de, I really liked modifying it to a wide suspension a-arm configuration with all rear shocks and Pro-Line Trenchers (they are really wide tires).

    All rear shocks? Do you mean xxlong all the way around? The front are a diff length shaft then that I assume?

    I havent tried putting rear shocks in the front, might try it.

    Adding the wide front suspension arms changes the suspension geo in a good way, it adds more travel and track. Ive found my stampede works best with similar damping rates front and back. This gives the truck some squat when it drives. Ive also found adding camber to the rear helped a lot too. Im still working on finding a good toe angle. I run in a large hilly back yard, hard packed dirt and grass.

    I really like the RPM gearcase for so many reasons. My P2de, two Sla2hs, and Rusty have one. The RPM gear case comes with mounts that give 3 toe in. That's your fix! Sweet.

    Hey jvogel what parts do I need for the wider stance? Is it just the rustler arms front and back?

    It used to be a pain to get a wider stance in the front but RPM has made is very easy:

    To add to that wider stance even more: Pro-Line 2.8" Trenchers or Badlands MX28.

    Got to finish this all off with a lifetime warrantied T-Bone Racing bumper and wheelie bar:

    Unfortunately, this good looking body falls apart really quickly.
