This truck comes with a lot of bells and whistles for a great price. I have heard a ton of good things about it before just now. This is a review a URC user did.

I hope venom makes some changes.

Whoever reads this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do yourself a favor and at least wait a month or two. There is bound to be better feedback by then and we'll see if this is a cheapo or a great deal... but for now it looks like Venom needs to straighten some things out.

I found some early stampede front and rear black springs they have the same dimensions and are much stiffer what the heck I'll try em .

Anyone know the specific lengths of the springs? It would have been wise of them to keep it at 2 inch and 2.5 inch, so the Losi assortment would work... I wonder if they did

Got mine a few weeks ago , Brushed version...havent had a chance to get it on the track yet. All Ive done so far is add 80wt losi shock oil, adjusted the camber and installed a Novak Havoc spec setup with a 17.5 ss motor. Stock spur with a 25 tooth pinion. Ive ran it a few times in the parking lot and im very impressed with its handling and ability to soak up the huge speed bumps we have here. Only issues I see with the truck is the week arms.

I'm wondering if since mines back ordered if its a new batch and will have the new arms that aren't so weak. I was told to run 60wt oil minimum in the shocks, but wanted to see if someone was running a higher wt to see how it affected the handling. You think 80wt is good or maybe try higher??

I'm not discouraged. I think the potential positives outweigh the negatives.

I have raced it twice now. The first time I got third, the second time I finished first. I put the one hole pistons in that came with the kit. I have 35 wt in the back with stock springs and 50wt in front with a heavier spring rate ( don't know the rate they were in a box of parts I had.) I put 10mm travel limiters in front (fuel line on the shafts.) I put one shim under the front upper ball link. one degree camber all the way around about half a degree of toe in. I have the over flexing arms.
