The Traxxas Stampede holds a place in our hearts as being a fun 2WD monster truck that just about any enthusiast at any skill level can drive. But for those with a little experience under their belt, the Traxxas Stampede 4×4 is the logical next step up in off-road fun. The Stampede 4×4 has a proven rugged 4WD drivetrain that can also be found in the Slash 4×4. The brushed power system gives drivers plenty of speed on long stretches and has enough grunt to launch off some aggressive jumps. The weather proof electronics allow it to be driven in all types of environments and it’s tough components can handle lots of abuse. But as many RCer’s know, there is room for improvement and that’s what we’re here to talk to you about. There are plenty of upgrade options for the Stampede 4×4 and for this 3 Upgrade Ideas Thursday segment, we have some suggestions to toughen up the Traxxas Stampede 4×4.
