Traxxas offers a number of vehicles based on the popular Stampede platform. The Traxxas Stampede is one of our favorite trucks and has been the basis of many RC Driver monster truck projects over the years. There are a ton of upgrades available for the Stampede base, but for this particular project we are going to stick primarily with Traxxas factory upgrades. Who knows what better to upgrade than the factory and Traxxas offers some pretty impressive parts to boost both durability and style on anyone’s TRX machine. Don’t have a Stampede, but have a similar Traxxas vehicle like a Bandit or Rustler? You’ll want to watch this video too as many of the parts shown here will work on your vehicle. Now take a look at Part 2 of our Traxxas Stampede Base Project build series to see the installation of the Traxxas optional aluminum steering caster blocks, steering blocks and rear hubs.
