what upgrades will be best for my elec. stampede

I'm just courious which up grades will be best for my stampede. I have ordered 2 sets of bearings 5x8 which will fit the stock carriers and 5x11 if I decide the change to the RPM carriers (also is it worth changing to the bigger bearings?). Input is always appreciated.

5x11's are a must. You will blow the 5x8's in a heart beat. They are not strong enough to handle the size and weight of the truck and tires. Other upgrades would be the RPM wide front bumper, and if you plan on going faster you will need the aluminum idler gear. Also you might want to look at upgrading the shocks by either totally replacing them or getting the traxxas aluminum caps because the stock plastic one's tend to pop from jumping.

A ball diff and some Proline tires will help a lot too. You can also make some adjustable camber links using Lunsford Ti turbuckles and some Du-Bro ball joint hardware.
To finish first....first ya gotta finish!
