    1/8 scale Stampede and family of Pedes

    Finally purchased some Pro Line Sand Paws. Our area of dredged river sand will be perfect for these. Had the silver with blue flame Rustler body sitting around and my sons Bigfoot body was needing a lot of shoe goo in rear so time to switch. Love how aggressive these tires look. Hate gluing them...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    While I’m gonna enjoy this for awhile i got this body and wheel combo (except white rims) in mind down the road. Gonna cost $200 bucks though so no rush If JConcepts ever does a Renegade, Firestorm, Golden year 2.2 tire this is one of my favorite trucks and that Traxxas body is a perfect match...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Sooner or later I will address the gear cover issue. After installing the Traxxas slipper clutch the spur gear sits farther out away than stock one plus the gear is thicker so just drilling a hole for the longer shaft and adjustment nut and spring and somehow covering that hole won’t work. May...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Still dwarfed by a Clodbuster. Good in some ways and part of the appeal to me. One of the reasons I don’t like Clod size wheels on them but that’s just my opinion.

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    A lot of before and after comparison pics for size. Compared to Traxxas Stampede Bigfoot that has been widened with Proline Protrac kit and front offset wheels all around.

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Final reveal, lots of body choices but I picked a Traxxas stampede Bigfoot body. $39 bucks already painted and stickered and Silver fits the overall scheme. Wheelbase maybe just a touch long/wide but with the 5200 kv motor it should get to 25-28 mph so any extra stability will be welcomed...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Now the results with wheelbase measurements. Hard to see but CPE sway bars installed also. Haven’t extended drive shafts yet though.

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    HPI body post’s. Not easy to get, you may pay more for shipping than the actual part. Luckily I have a very good hobby shop nearby with a large inventory. Crawford Performance Engineering’s sway bar kit. $9.99 plus shipping. Think this is T-Maxx parts. Gonna cut these down for driveshafts...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Biggest risk here and may be regretting it already. Only cost $38 bucks shipped from China so nearly 3 weeks to get. Shipped in a small flimsy cardboard box in a lightly line shipping envelope. Looks just like GOOL stuff that I had success with until I hooked up a battery backwards and smoked...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Hot Racing 30-50mm wheel wideners. Had lots of options here but these looked interesting. $29 bucks and lots of options stateside so fast shipping. They were way to tight, would not go together and I was very worried initially but turns out just needed 800 grit sand paper on barrel nuts and on...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Hot Racing aluminum chassis plates. $40 bucks shipped and plenty of places stateside on eBay so ships fast. Not super thick but not thin and flimsy either. Not necessary, nothing wrong with stock chassis just wanted a little bling and the stock HPI plastic chrome chassis cost only about half as...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    GPM aluminum 295mm wheelbase Wheely King upper and lower links. They cost $42 (20 & 22) with free shipping. My GPM all shipped from CHINA so took just a little over 2 weeks to get. Was really wondering after I purchased with Covid age now but shipping didn’t seem to take any longer than normal...

    W/K rebuild for brushless

    Update. Been awhile but it’s still kicking and has been a favorite of mine. I don’t really thrash on this, still have the original body scratched up and a bit of shoe goo but still very useable. Nephew’s and friends use it at times so it does get a good beating time to time from them and has...

    1/8 scale Stampede and family of Pedes

    Okay first use on the batteries and they worked great. We had 20-25 minutes run time per pack. The 100c took along time to balance on first charge. We’ll see on the second. I finally found an awesome bash spot. Some type of dirt/sand quarry next to some backwaters river area. Couple of kinda...

    1/8 scale Stampede and family of Pedes

    Purchased some cheap Chinese lipo batteries and a new charger/balancer. If they are good or junk I will let you know. Batteries are Zeee brand and came from a California warehouse location so I received them in 1 week with free shipping and pretty inexpensive. I purchased 3 hard case 2 cell...

    SMT10 running 2.2 wheels

    I just realized the answer to my question. In 2.2 m/t size Jconcepts only makes one style tire, the Ranger. Good looking on a pickup or trail rig but not right on a monster truck.

    SMT10 running 2.2 wheels

    Not sure if anyone will answer or even read this these days but here goes. I’ve been interested in the SMT10 since its introduction and now with the cheaper and improved redone RTR or build your own raw builders kit I’m pretty sure that will be my next truck. I’m not crazy about wheel combos...

    Bouncy Update!!

    I really like this build. Fun seeing the scale details. Reminds me of how I fell in love with rc back in early to mid 90’s. Congrats on a great truck!

    1/8 scale Stampede and family of Pedes

    The current stable. My 1/8th scale Stampede turned into 2 builds somehow. Chuckworks Maxpede mid motor (unpainted) and FLM 1/8 chassis(orange). Both are nearly finished other than some paint, tire glueing. Have all the electronics just need to install. I do need a 3 cell lipo for the truggy and...
