Stampede 4x4 hopups? - 04.03.2013, 12:46 AM

Ok, so I have almost finished the hobby room upgrades, and in the process i have "unearthed" the remains of my pede 4x4.

I was in the middle of a wheel driveshaft upgrade that used a mixture of MIP savage and revo parts.

Stupid stock sliders were blowing out after about 2mins. I bet the truck has less than 10mins total on it.

Anyways, power system will likely be a 1410 castle on 3s thru a mmpro.

Looking for mid 40s top speed, will run regualr pede wheels and tires.

RPM arms and teckno hubs on the truck. Using 12mm hexes right now but may switch to truggy wheels and 17mm hexes if the 12s can't handle it.

Any recommendations?

I just finished tricking out a 2wd one for a friend of mine's son. Here is what I did..

FLM Extended chassis
ST Racing Concepts Heat Treated Polished Steel Lock Nut Style Hinge Pin Set (Black)
RPM73612 RPM Hybrid Gearbox Housing & Rear Mounts (Black)
Losi Ten T shocks all around
LOSB2907 Losi Shock Standoff Set (4)
RPM80372 RPM Front Bearing Carrier Set
TRA3632A Traxxas L/R Aluminim Caster Blocks 30 Deg (Blue)

SPTST3639GM ST Racing Concepts 6mm Heavy Duty Front Shock Tower (Gun Metal)
ST Racing Concepts 6mm Heavy Duty Rear Shock Tower (Gun Metal)

I tried to make it bomb proof...I also added Proline tires. I am sure I am forgetting a few misc. items. Hope this helps

2. MBX-5T 1520, MMM ON 5S
5. TEN T 2650 T8, MMP ON 3S

Back to modding my pede 4x4.

Working on a hybrid MIP CVD setup. Using MIP savage front center shaft, with old MIP emaxx axles. Using the techno rear hub carriers and the techno front knuckles. Had to get 4 bearings in custom size to fit the techno carriers and have a 6mm ID. Also had to go with 6mm ID outer bearings.

Using a few of the teflon shims to get the drive pin in the right place to use techno 12mm hexes with 6mm bore. Had to trim the drive pins down slightly as they are too long for the hexes.

On the diff side I had to remove the std outdrives, which are 5mm, and swap them for non brushless revo/maxx outdrives, with 6mm. The original 4x4 pede outdrives are actually stepped down to 5mm, as the diff cup is the same as an revo/maxx at 6mm. Not a bad swap, and they should be stronger. I could have swapped to full erevo spec diffs, but I plan to only run 3s and a 1406 motor so I doubt the diffs will have issues.

I could have just bought the upgraded x-01 style drop in shafts, but they did not exist when I started this mod about 6 yrs ago, and they still run the small bearings and outdrives.

All of this tomfoolery will result in a much stronger than stock setup. I will post pics.
