Default I want to buy new car. Stampede or rustler.

I have a firestorm flux currently and was wondering what you would get as a second car. Stampede or rustler? Kinda like the higher up ride height of these two. Think I should get stampede with higher ride height and ability to jump or rustler not as much ride height but more top speed? Suggestions would be great.

The Rustler is a stadium truck exactly like the Firestorm so since you're choosing between getting a new stadium truck or a monster truck, I would recommend the Stampede.

Yep +1^^. I would get the pede. Actually I would get the slash and put the 2.8 wheels and tires, and different body on that instead of getting the pede. Now you will have a longer wheelbase and better handling over the pede.

Go 4wd you won't regret it! You already have a 2wd so give the 4wd a try.

I'm more of a beginner and I read up that 4wd would be a bit harder to work on?
