Stampede for Christmas

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Let me start by saying, I am hooked. Been flying for 2 years now and decided to try a vehicle. Thought the Stampede would be a good point to begin. Managed to get one for Christmas. Took it out to a site where they are building new houses. Dirt piles, ground torn up etc. Was a little muddy from all the wet weather but what a hoot. The tires (and my shoes) were caked with mud. Climbing, jumping, trashing it around. What a blast. Took in on the pavement where they are building, so it was pretty dusty. At full, the dirt was flying 20feet into the air off the tires. Doing donuts. It was a riot. I have 2 3200mah batteries, so I had some decent run time.
I can see the money leaving my bank account now. I need nitro. More power and more speed. Guess I have to figure out what to get. Likely a revo 3.3, t-maxx 3.3 or a Savage X. Just what I needed, another hobby. LOL
Anyone in the Sarnia area into monster trucks? I gots me some learning to do.

Merry Christmas

Sounds awsome Jack! Glad your enjoying your new truck! It is serious fun though eh? LOL!

I just got my new Losi 8ight before Christmas. Haven't run it yet but I'm getting excited about giving her a try.

Its an off road nitro buggy with a 4.27 engine. Real heavy duty stuff! I want to do some competition racing with it this coming season.

If your thinking nitro, I've seen the Savage X and its a very impressive monster truck. I think seeing that your just starting out, the Savage X RTR is a great value. Just charge up the batterys for the Rx and Tx, fuel her up and away you go. The kit version of the X requires building and all the proper setups and doesn't come with a radio system although it does come with some upgrade parts and a bit larger engine.

You can hold this truck up at sholder height and let it drop to the floor and it won't bottom out on the chassis. Its suppose to be one of the very best monster trucks made for jumping, and I believe it!

There are a lot of real nice machines out there so you've got a choice to make. Just thought I'd offer my opinion on the Savage X for you to consider! When I get a Monster truck, it will be the Savage X!

Oh, and about having some learing to do........Remember, experience lays at the bottom of every jug of fuel! You have to burn it to earn it!

Yeah, I looked at a Savage X rtr. That is definately my next truck. Good and solid and takes a beating. There are no tracks near me that I know about. (an hour to London for a track) so I don't see a lot of racing in my future, just bashing. May have to sell a plane to get it. Wife might get a bit upset if I bring home another "toy". (up to a dozen planes, a couple of helis and now the stampede. And I only got into RC 2 years ago)
However, I will keep my eyes open for a good deal.
