    UPDATE!!!!!

    got rid of the VXL3m due to it overheating every 2 runs and installed a hobbywing 60amp esc. i broke the receiver though so i need to buy a new one for this truck.

    also got a new stock traxxas body and modified it just a little to reduce pressure build up in the bed. pics to come later today or tomorrow.

    very excited to get this truck back up and running again on 3s, should be seriously fast.

    I ended up parting the truck out. Built another Stampede but havent really thought about trying this again. Beating the 72mph Wheely King shouldnt be much of an issue as long as i can keep the front end down.

    Maybe I will see what i can do this weekend. Get some speed runs going again. I have quite a few 3s packs laying around along with a newer radar gun.
