    Toughest stampede body, little to no modifications!

    What's the toughest aftermarket body you guys know of for the stampede 4x4. Changing the body mount posts or slight modifications I can deal with, not trying to do anything major.

    Pretty much looking at the pro line ambush with that roll cage, seems pretty legit.

    Get whatever body you want and do the drywall tape and shoe goo mod. There are lots of videos on YouTube that tell you how to do it.

    I have destroyed so many shells over the years! My favorite ultra-tough body for my P4de is a Traxxas Rustler shell. It takes only a bit of tinkering to get it to lay level. I use the Rustler shell on my P2de as well.

    Come to think of it, I have never even had to repair a Rusty shell. My Slash bodies are suffused with Shoe-Goo and drywall tape!

    I went from needing a new body every few weeks to needing a new every 6 months at least after fiberglass drywall mesh tape and shoe glue. It works so good. I even put in the washers where body holes are.

    I need just one more rc, then Im done,

    I like painting new bodies, so I don't care how many I destroy, but I never seem to go through bodies that fast.

    When I first got mine I ran a pack in the morning before work. 2 packs through it at lunch and at least 2 packs in the evening. 5 days a week. On weekends at least 6 packs a day. Within 2 or 3 weeks I was already adjusting slipper from being to loose. So thats a lot of run times. Then when I got my first lipos and brushless setup.... it prob spent more time sliding down the street on its lid than it did on its wheels lol! So you can imagine how quickly i was going through bodies...

    I need to add the washers on mine next time. That's smart.

    If theyre any suv bodies still out for the stampede.

    Ive always found Suv bodys are stiffer.

    Thatll be my next rout.

    Thanks, on fronts if using a big fender washer youll have to bend it a little to match curve of hood.
