Traxxas Stampede

So there it is: a Traxxas Stampede. It's so much fun to drive around I'm rather reluctant to tear it apart. I'll have to take some care to retain the ability to run it as an R/C car.

The stampede is a 2WD Monster truck. It has a single servo for steering and is capable of 30 mph. I'll reduce the gearing so that it has more torque and a lower top speed for safety.

If you look carefully you can see that the front-right tire is askew. That's because I ran it into a curb and broke the front right caster block. It's currently awaiting a new caster block so it'll run again.
