    PeterV, not sure if you could pass this along or not, but I think it would be awesome to have adjustable body mounts for this. A true 1/10 e-revo would be awesome, but the stampede would make do if we could change the look a bit more than the high-rise body position.

    So i know its not quite out yet, but it looks so good. I've got a Savage XL and am thinking about switching back to electric and hell its faster so its all good. How does everyone think it would fare as a general purpose basher? Too top heavy for the highspeed runs and jumping?

    This will be a big hit. A 4WD Monster truck with plenty of power and only requiring one battery. Wonder if there thinking of the same thing with the Rustler although I know the demand for a 4wd stampede was high.

    I'm with you Catalyst, adjustable posts would be a nice accessory. If Traxxas doesn't make them, I'm sure someone else will.

    Would love to see some snow action, like they did with the E-Revo and Summit

    I would totally jump on this if the price were alittle more friendly.

    Just opened mine up and ran a battery through it briefly in the cold. Nice truck. Plenty quick, seems to handle decently as well. Have to wait for daylight to really have some fun.

I already have everything onhand out of a car I just sold....It just needs a home.
    You DO realize this is NOT a racing vehicle right?

    hahahahaha you DO realize its a MONSTER TRUCK right?
    See lots of other people do realize it, and thats why the Stampede has been around for so long, because its a great MONSTER TRUCK...

    AND..so what.....just because it's not a racing vehicle it HAS to be only offered as a RTR? That's very narrow minded thinking. There is NO reason that this cannot be offered as a KIT along with a RTR...it would be a lot more appealing to those that already have the electronics and/or don't want the stock electronics.

    I already had the electronics of my choice for one so I just bought a new roller on feeBay. It was hard to pass up for $160. After running it I say it's a total winner! No, it does not handle like a 4wd buggy or stadium truck but it does handle well enough to make it a blast to drive.

    Traxxas doesn't do kits. I wish they did, but they don't. This subject gets beat to death everytime an RTR is announced.

    I am sure there isn't a large audience that wants to spend more on electronics then what it costs rtr. Traxxas can keep it more affordable by not offering it in a bunch of different versions and having to come up with different packaging etc. But doesn't matter. Something tells me even if it was a kit, you wouldn't be happy about something else.
