Build your own Traxxas Stampede 4x4
Seeing the wheels move for the first time on an RC car you built yourself, not only gives a feeling of satisfaction that's hard to match, but also provides unique insights into the engineering and mechanics of the car. A great way to make learning fun - with the added benefit of having an ultra fast RC car, capable of wreaking mayhem wherever it goes when your done!
The Stampede Assembly kit includes everything you need except paint and tools - even all the electronics for the car, except for batteries and a charger. Simply follow the detailed step-by-step manual, choose your favourite colour for the body and you're ready to get building!
The Stampede 4X4 is built on the proven, shaft-driven 4WD system and innovative modular design of the award-winning Slash 4X4. The chassis fully integrates the electronics and battery compartment for an efficient and compact layout, and maintains the high center ground clearance that gives Stampede its monster truck stance. The high ground clearance drastically increases the off-road versatility that allows you to tackle rougher terrain and bigger obstacles. The Stampede 4X4 feels planted and secure at speed, even on pavement and in other high-grip conditions. With a top speed of 48+ km/h and a high ground clearance that allows it to drive over anything. The Stampede blasts through grass and conquers any obstacles. The waterproof ESC and receiver allow the Stampede to blast through puddles, mow through mud and shred snow for wild all-weather fun.
The XL-5 ESC of the Stampede 4x4 can run on a wide range of voltages, making it really easy to get to grips with the new car on cheaper, less powerful 7.2V NiMH batteries, and simply purchasing more powerful 8.4V batteries once the driver is experiences enough to handle it. This makes it a really good starting point for kids for example, as they can start out slow and upgrade as they learn, rather than getting bored or having to get a new, more powerful car to keep them entertained.
Titan Power, unstoppable driving
With the included Titan 12T motor and XL-5 ESC the 1/10 Stampede 4x4 offers strong performance that makes the car a total blast to drive, while still being an easy way to get started in RC cars. The integrated cooling fan pulls cool air through vent tunnels molded into the motor plate to keep temperatures down for faster speeds, longer runtime, and extended motor life. The XL-5 Electronic Speed Control offers high current handling, EZ-Set one-button setup, and smooth high-frequency control. The XL-5 comes standard with three drive profiles, low voltage detection, thermal shutdown protection, gold-plated connectors, and incredibly low resistance - all features that were previously reserved for significantly more expensive cars. The patented Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for unrestricted current flow with todays high-power batteries.
Delivered with all electronics, except batteries and charger
The Traxxas Stampede 4x4 1/10 assembly kit comes with a Traxxas TQ 2.4 GHz radio system and receiver, XL-5 ESC, Titan 12T motor and 2056 Water-Proof high-torque Servo. The clear body is pre-cut and comes with masking tape for the windows and decals, making the paint job a breeze. Tires and wheels are included, but you'll need some tire glue or CA glue for them as well.

We recommend using Traxxas EZ-Peak Fast Chargers and Traxxas 8.4V NiMH or 2S LiPo batteries with a minimum capacity of 3000 mAh. To maximise speed and run-time get the Traxxas Power Cell 7.4V 5000mAh 2S LiPo Battery (requires EZ-Peak Charger). For beginners we recommend the Traxxas Power Cell 8.4V 3000mAh NiMH Hump Battery.
*Top speed of 48+ km/h with 7-cell battery and included optional 28-tooth pinion gear.
