    OK, my dillemma is that i have a rustler and got tired of it, so pretty much it's sold. So, i've decided to get a new stampede. I am very experienced at driving big trucks so i don't care about the whole wheelie thing. With that aside, does anybody have any comments about it, whether they are good or bad.

    P.S-if you suck at driving and broke something, ignore this topic

    maybe i came off like a smart a**. I guess that's why no one responded. I just really want to know about these stampedes. I would also like to know if anyone has any suggestions for off road equipment. I already have Masher 2000 tires, RPM rims, a high torque stock motor, a 3000 mah battery, a new Intellispeed 8 turn esc w/reverse, and a hummer body for looks. Does anyone want to add to my list of offroad gear that i may need? I feel all this stuff works for me but there may be a better option out there. That's why i ask for assistance.

    probably not the best idea but add some weight to the front end.or change your gearing so it doesnt have so much torque
