best-selling Stampede was the first high-performance monster truck and it's
legendary ruggedness has made the Stampede name synonymous for monster truck
Today, the Stampede has a hot new look, innovative features, and of course,
more power to boost the fun quotient even higher. Combine the increased
horsepower with the tall, drive-over-anything ground clearance; ultra-tough
suspension; exclusive waterproof electronics (blast through puddles, mow through
mud and shred snow); and easy operation, Stampede will quickly become your
favorite for all kinds of monster truck action. Stampede is still the first name
in high-performance monster trucks.
Stampede is one monster truck that doesn’t know when to quit! Crushing cars,
catching big air, and popping wheelies have never been this much fun. There is
no other truck available that offers Stampede’s unique style, capability, and
reputation for durability. When it comes to speed, the Titan 12-turn 550
modified motor and racing-style Magnum 272™ transmission propel the Stampede to
speeds over 30mph*. The integrated cooling fan in the Titan 12T pulls air
through the motor keeping it cool. Airflow is routed through cooling channels
molded into the motor plate. A cooler running motor delivers faster speeds,
longer runtime, and extended motor life.
Stampede benefits from it's family lineage incorporating advanced Revo®
technology to bolster performance. The Magnum 272 transmission is fully sealed
and comes equipped with efficient and precise ball bearings and an advanced Revo®-Spec
Torque-Control™ slipper clutch. Revo-spec Talon™ 2.8" tires provide sure-footed
traction no matter how extreme the terrain is. The aggressive Talon tires are
pre-glued and mounted on bold 2.8" All-Star™ mirror-chrome wheels. Based on the
proven Revo Talon tires, the versatile 2.8" Talons grip the pavement, tear
through rocks, and have the ability to kick-up massive roosts. The tires include
performance-tuned foam inserts that provide extra stability on any surface.
Sealed Electronics Extend Your Driving
shocked enthusiasts with the release of our exclusive watertight, sealed
electronics in the E-Maxx that provided the freedom to drive where you want
to drive through water, mud, snow, and other wet-running conditions that
wouldn’t have been possible before. Now the Traxxas Rustler is Ready-To-Race
with this waterproof technology. The new XL-5 electronic speed control and the
mini receiver are sealed against the elements giving you the freedom go places
you might not have thought possible. It opens up a whole new world of adventure
and fun. Wet muddy tracks are no problem for the Rustler.
harness the power of the 12-turn motor, Traxxas bolted in the high-performance,
waterproof XL-5 electronic speed control. With ultra-smooth, high-frequency
operation and high-power handing capability, the XL-5 makes the Stampede as fast
as it looks. EZ-Set® one-button setup makes it easy to adjust or change
profiles. Traxxas' exclusive Training Mode™ profile cuts total power output in
half and leaves the brakes at full strength. It’s the first controller of its
kind that has a 50% power profile. Training Mode is designed for young or first
time drivers that want to learn the ropes before unleashing the full power of
the mighty Titan 12T motor. This makes the Stampede perfect for almost any age
driver or skill level.
quest for ultimate speed began with the battery connector. As today’s batteries
store more and more energy inside their cells, traditional battery connectors
became a roadblock, unable to deliver all the energy the battery is capable of
outputting. The new Traxxas High-Current Connector opens the door for
unrestricted current flow.
The Stampede comes fully loaded with innovative performance options like a
fiber-composite chassis designed for exceptional rigidity and enormous ground
clearance. Battery removal is made easy by the quick-release battery hold down
latch. In addition, the factory-installed planetary differential never needs
adjusting! Just take the Stampede out of the box, charge up a battery, and go
have fun! If you’re looking for an all-terrain truck that is perfect for monster
bashing or wheelie-popping thrills, look no further. Stampede is all you need.

Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor The
Stampede comes with a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with internal
cooling fan. An industry first for this class of truck. The Titan’s over-sized
armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures) is equipped with 12-turns
of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling capabilities.
Lower running temperatures are achieved with the integrated cooling fan. The
Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and is designed for consistent torque
and high speeds from run to run, without fading.
Beyond the specs, the Titan 12T is made for rock crushing torque, hardcore
wheelie launches, explosive jumping, and just about any other 4-wheel fun that
demands real horsepower. Be sure to check out the videos to see it in action!
Waterproof Electronic Speed Control
Designed and engineered by Traxxas, the XL-5 Electronic Speed Control handles
the elements while smoothly supplying power to the motor. This high-performance
ESC is packed with impressive specifications that are normally only found on
more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-5 features a completely
waterproof design, three throttle profiles, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-8
cell compatibility, and built-in BEC. High frequency operation combined with
ultra-low resistance make the XL-5 an efficient and ultra-smooth fully
proportional speed control. An exclusive feature on the XL-5 is the patent
pending Training Mode™. This profile reduces the overall power output of the
XL-5 by 50% making it easier for young or new drivers to develop their control
skills before unleashing full-power operation. The XL-5 is manufactured by
Traxxas to ensure the highest level of quality and support.

Waterproof Steering Servo
A monster truck needs a powerful steering servo for responsive performance, and
Traxxas delivers with the 2056 high-torque servo. This waterproof steering servo
uses O-ring seals to keep the fun going when things get wet. Waterproof for
all-weather action, the 2056 provides 80 oz-in of steering muscle. That's twice
the power of typical "standard" servos.
Stampede's innovative receiver box is fully waterproof, yet it's easy to access
the receiver maintenance. The exclusive patent-pending design holds a 4-channel
micro receiver that saves weight and provides reliable, long-range R/C
Channel Micro Receiver
A four channel Traxxas micro receiver gives you additional room to grow! The

made from the highest quality nylon composites. Many parts including the
chassis, shock bodies, and transmission housing are molded in gray for a fresh
Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
Revo technology is utilized to manage the increased power from the Titan 12T
motor. The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction
material and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide
consistent traction control. The semi-metallic friction material remains stable
across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can
count on, run after run. Spur gears can be removed and replaced without altering
the slipper adjustment.
Talon™ 2.8" Pre-Glued Tires with Foam Inserts The
advanced Talon tread pattern is the same proven design used to provide excellent
traction on our highest performing Revo and T-Maxx models! The soft compound
rubber hooks up for maximum acceleration and great grip on a wide variety of
surfaces: dirt, grass, pavement, and rocks.
The mirror-chrome All-Star™ wheels feature a lightweight horizontal bead that
holds the tire to the rim even under extreme rpm. Performance-designed foam
inserts are standard and all tires come pre-glued from the factory to get you
rolling right out of the box.

Titan 12T motor fan to pull air through the motor for superior cooling.
Ready Magnum 272™ Transmission
Stampede’s Magnum 272 transmission is assembled with new all metal gear
internals riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth
48-pitch gears, power is delivered quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint
driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt
Ready Planetary Gear Differential
The composite Traxxas planetary gear differential now features a steel ring gear
with a nylon gear housing for long life. It uses hardened steel internal gears
for maximum strength during rigorous off-road bashing. This type of differential
requires virtually no maintenance and its efficient design puts maximum
tire-shredding torque to the wheels.
Solid, durable camber links take the guess work out of set-up and are captured
to keep you on the trail even when the going gets rough. Captured rod ends
provide unmatched durability and they simply won't pop off.
4" Ground Clearance
With 4-inches of center ground clearance, the Stampede goes places other trucks
can’t! Stampede easily tackles real world obstacles such as tall grass, curbs,
Slider driveshafts are extremely durable, and they allow greater articulation
for increased suspension travel.
The included TQ radio system includes a high-power transmitter with a specially
designed comfort grip, a precise high-torque steering servo, and a compact
