    Back in the Saddle

    Finally brought my Stampede back among the running after having not driven it in the last 4 years, especially since it'll be 20 years since I bought it in February 2019. Did a few updates like new chassis tub modified to accept the Traxxas 7600mAh 2s I bought for my E4T 2.0 last spring in place of the older tub I had bought and modded to fit a 7 cell stick pack and lower the ESC to better clear the stadium truck bodies when I run them slammed down over the chassis like this one.

    Now it already had the RPM Towers, casters and carriers, arms, Slash 2wd rear skid modded so I could use the also modded Proline Slash 2wd chassis brace, Jato driveshafts, VXL system, slipper clutch, and 2075 servo swaps, New Era front bulkhead, Kimbrough servo saver, 1/8" Associated hinge pin for kingpins, ect. In the last several years I had swapped over to the monster truck body mounts and front bumper when I put the Gate Crasher shell on it, RPM trans case, XX-Long front arms, Slash 4x4 rear arms and carriers, L and XXL GT-R shocks, and changed over to the TQi radio that also came with the E4T2.0 and TSM Rx, and Proline Trenchers and Desperados.

    Well, here's a few pics taken after work today

    And a short video of it doing some test hits until the 19t pinion fell off, where I kinda hit the house and gouged the body a bit. The impact isn't in frame, but you can hear the hit and me go "Ooohhhhhh" in the background around half way through it.

    Picked up a new pavement body for the Pede, a JConcepts Illuzion Hi-Speed body for the Rustler VXL. Also going to use a set of Proline's Stampede sized Street Fighter tires on their Chromed, deep offset Desperado wheels that I bought back and assembled with duct tape in 2012, both of which are disco'd now.

    Mounted and painted pics to come later though, need to see if I have the cans of Model Master Viper Blue Pearl I want to shoot it with that I thought I did. Going to the Museum of Science and Industry with my Father tomorrow too, so I'm going to be a bit busy during the day and possibly wiped out by the time we get home.

    Looking good. I love to slam the bodies as well. Whats the first body?
    Whats the overall height? Under 7"?
    I like the second one too. I run Rustler bodies.
    I've gotten the height down as low as 6 1/2"

    The first body is the now discontinued JConcepts GateCrasher, originally a crawler body then reworked into a replacement body for the Monster Jam Stampedes, not sure on the overall height with that body, but it is loooooooww

    Here it is next to a VXL Rustler and Stampede, mine in the furthest from the camera.
