We have the Proline Masher 2000's on our 'Pede. Made a huge handling difference on the track and have been a great tire all around.

The masher 2000 only comes in the soft (m2) compund. Softer tire material but the foams fit well so the combination results in a great improvement over stock.

Fellow Pede owner here, just two things to say -

1. The best place on the web to talk about traxxas Stampede's is at Traxxas Stampede Forums

2. One of the best (if not the most indepth) place on the web to see how to upgrade / fix parts is Mis'behavin

3. Pede's rock, glad to see more owners out there.

Okay, so it was three, sue me. I look forward to seeing you in the Traxxas forums

IS the rustler faster than the stampede? ANd how much difference is there in ground clearance between the two. Im trying to decide which would be better to get for my first RC truck

both trucks come from the factory with the same motor/gearing. the rusty will have it out of the hole due to the tire size/gear ratio. our 'pede has passed rusty's on the track. get them out in the grass....'pede all the way!! there is a little more ground clearance stock with the 'pede and with moving the shocks this can be improved too

Alright the more research i do it looks like the stampede is what i want. I dont like the body that comes on it though, where is a good place to look at some prepainted ones that will fit on the stampede?

Hey all,

I'm back after some cpu issues. Where have all of these 'pede drivers come from? I love it!

I would:
a) check with the local track, if any, to see what they commonly race and go with that.
-OR-
b) ask what kind of rc experience you have. If its your first rc truck the 'pede is better in my opinion cuz of the durability.

I made my Stampede fly yesterday. Here's the math:
7t single+3300's+jump=FUN!

PCBliss, most any 1/10th scale body will work with the 'Pede. You may have to get a little creative with mounts, but the results are worth it and there are a ton out there for choices. Stadium truck bodies on the 'Pede's look cool

Red Z: Dan are you getting the proper clearance before take off?

I have seen a lot of bodies for the Maxx series of trucks, these will fit also (from what I've read) with some slight modification to wheel wells and body mount reamed holes.
