    I Got Lucky - TWICE

    Today I was given a couple of older Stampedes. They’re not in great shape, but they and their radios have been stored in boxes for a long time. I’m between image hosting sites for now, so here’s a description.

    Model 3606
    Old, white spur gear with teensy little slipper
    I think it’s the VXL-1 ESC. Huge, crude, giant blue heat sinks
    Model 2015 27mhz receiver/BEC. Also giant
    “Stinger” motor

    Any rough time frame for these things? Any ideas where to find [b]vintage[\b] exploded diagrams?

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, XL-1 ESC.

    I’ve narrowed them down to 2001-06, based on electronics and paint schemes.

    Took a hike through Kamp Krusty today. (Tore down the Stampedes.) There was so much electrical tape, silicone caulking and some gooey red stuff! Not sure if anything works, or if that even matters. Kinda cool to find unopened parts bags and a charger that looks brand new. Also 2 XL1 escs, 2 27mhz radio systems and a few crusty old motors.

    The downsides are the mildly weird sized bushings in the uprights. Does anyone know if the transmissions use bearings or bushings?
