Is the Traxxas Stampede a good buy?
its not too bad, but i would go with the e-maxx
YES. I have had my pede for over 2 years. It has been to he** and back. I still haven't broken anything on it. I've only had to replace a few batteries and that's it.
the gears the servos in my 2 cousins stampedes stripped already.
the chassis is strong, and the motor isnt bad either. its a powerful truck, but if you get it, definately get a better motor, and some extra batteries.
you can upgrade to better gears that wont strip out.
the motor that comes with it is a peice of crap but it is a little faster than the odler stock ones since it has a less turn arm in it.20t.the old ones are 27t.
they make much higher quality RC kits but for the money it is pretty good.oil filled shocks in it are pretty good for jumping and off roading.
