Exclamation dropped the stampede

Anyone who owns a 2wd stampede knows its a bit of a challenge to handle. Esp with a brushless power plant. So I took off some short ass shocks off of a nitro chassis laying around and put them on good ol' Stacy here�� handles soo much better. Not perfect but definitely doesn't flip as much anymore. Just wanted to share

lowering the suspension like that on most MT's makes them easier to handle. For instance the Savage can't turn at any type of speed if the pre-loads are on the shocks, but if you remove them all the ride height drops, and it becomes able to turn without rolling over.
The reverse is also true raising a vehicles COG with shocks makes them roll over easier in turns, and wheelie easier.
