People do race the XTM x-cellerator but from factory it is a little lacking from the start .... Its just a little 199.00 job that XTM did.... but read about the rc10gt2 it wasnt motor problems it was the diff....causing it to wind high and not put out.. Driver error.

throttle control is a big deal with high powered nitro trucks. expecially 2wd

this truck will be tough. ive seen some nasty crashes with the mbefore. casing huge tripples, landing on one front tire only from like 7 feet up. they can take a crash for sure. keep it clean though. that will keep it runnign longer and smoother.

What servo saver would you recommend for the stampede. I've been using a standard airtronics servo, the servo's fine, but I keep stripping the servo saver adaptor thing on the stock traxxas servo saver.

lowgeared, any fuel will work for breaking in an engine. im not sure if there is a "break in" fuel. just use what you are going to be driving with. as for flyers and stuff, just go around the shop more. meet some people who come into it and that work there.

jko- i use my stock servo saver. if it doesnt fit tight, then you need a smaller one, but im not sure what you should use. sorry
