    steering question

    I keep seeing bell crank steering listed for the stampede. is this a real thing or just to get you to look at it or buy it? If it is a real thing how does it work and is it worth changing over to it?

    I'd imagine your seeing the bellcrank for the Stampede 4x4.

    A 2wd stampede with a good servo and a good servo saver is probably the most sharp steering traxxas out there, being one of the very few traxxas cars without a bell crank. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

    If there was a like button, I would have clicked it on this comment.
    The simple and effective steering on the 2pede is great.
    The slight increase in bump-steer is way outweighed by the lack of slop.
    Still my favourite truck, Iíve tried most...

    On the Rustler forum they are talking about putting Stampede style steering in Rustlers...
