Traxxas Stampede RC Monster Truck
Rock-Crushing Torque - And Waterproof!
The best-selling Traxxas Stampede is the original high performance monster truck. Its legendary ruggedness has made the Stampede name synonymous with off-road fun. Today, the Stampede has a bold look, innovative features, and of course, more power. With a top speed of 30+mph and a tall drive-over-anything ground clearance, Stampede rips through grass and powers over curbs. Waterproof electronics allow it to blast through puddles and shred snow for all-weather adventure. Step up to genuine Traxxas quality and performance and discover a whole new level of fun with the Traxxas Stampede!
Battery and Charger Sold Separately
100% Assembled and Ready for your Battery and Charger
The Stampede rolls out of the box fully assembled and Ready-To-Race® with the TQ™ 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system, waterproof XL-5 Electronic Speed Control and Titan 12T motor.
Titan® 12-Turn 550 Modified Motor
The Stampede includes a powerful Titan 12T 550 modified motor with internal cooling fan - an industry first for this class of truck! The Titan's oversized armature (30% larger compared to 540-sized armatures) features 12 turns of pure copper wire for big torque and increased power-handling capabilities. The integrated cooling fan lowers running temperatures for more fun behind the wheel. The Titan 12T requires very little maintenance and provides consistent torque and high speeds run-after-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.
XL-5 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 packs impressive features that are normally only found on more expensive high-end replacement units. The XL-5 features a completely waterproof design, three throttle profiles, low voltage detection, Thermal Shutdown Protection, 4-7 cell NiMH and 2-cell LiPo 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. The exclusive and patented Training Mode™ 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.

Traxxas High-Current Connector
The patented Traxxas High-Current Connectors funnel maximum power to your vehicle’s electronics. Traxxas High-Current Connectors let you get the quickest, safest charge for your battery so you can unleash the maximum power and runtime for your Traxxas vehicle.
Precision 2.4GHz Control
Switch on the power and drive! That's all there is to it with the TQ™ 2.4GHz radio system. There are no frequencies to manage, so the focus is on having fun. Race multiple vehicles side by side without interference. The TQ's advanced programming provides long-range control with smooth, glitch-free performance. The TQ's ergonomic design is comfortable for all day driving with an internal antenna that is impervious to damage.
Waterproof Receiver Box
Stampede's innovative waterproof receiver box allows easy access to the receiver for maintenance. The unique patented design holds a 3-channel micro receiver that saves weight and provides reliable, long-range RC performance.
3-channel Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
The TQ 2.4GHz micro receiver fits easily into almost any vehicle, and features dual channel-1 steering outputs. The integrated LINK button makes it fast and easy to bind the receiver, and the two-color LED indicates power-on and bind status for fool-proof control and convenience. In the event of signal loss due to an accidental transmitter switch-off or depleted batteries, the receiver will automatically return the throttle to neutral and hold the last commanded steering position. The Fail Safe programming is conveniently built-in and does not need to be set or activated.
High-Torque 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.
Securely Mounted Electronics
The ESC and watertight receiver box mount directly to the chassis for ultimate mounting security. There's no servo tape to loosen over time with dirt, heat, and collisions.
Torque-Control™ Slipper Clutch
The Torque-Control slipper clutch uses special semi-metallic friction pads and finned aluminum alloy pressure plates to dissipate heat and provide consistent traction control. The friction material remains stable across a wide temperature range to provide smooth, linear engagement you can count on, run after run. Spur gears remove and replace easily without altering the slipper adjustment.
Talon™ 2.8” Pre-Glued Tires with Foam Inserts
The advanced Talon tire tread pattern provides excellent traction on almost any surface. The soft compound rubber hooks up for maximum acceleration and great grip on 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.
Included Optional Pinion Gear
The Stampede reaches its blistering 30+mph top speed on-road using the optional 21-tooth pinion gear (included) and a 7-cell 8.4V battery pack (sold separately). Out of the box, the installed 16-tooth pinion gear is just right for all-around, wheelie-popping, off-road action.
The Stampede's fully trimmed and painted ProGraphix body turns heads everywhere it goes with an aggressive look and bold paint design. Decals come pre-applied to save you time and get you driving just minutes out of the box. Traxxas' ProGraphix bodies are the hottest looking bodies around and are only available on Traxxas Ready-to-Race® models.
Oil-Filled Ultra Shocks™
Stampede's oil-filled Ultra Shocks utilize X-ring technology for a perfect seal and silky-smooth performance. They are easy to customize with a wide range of high-performance oils, springs, and pistons available. Features include pressure bladders for air/oil separation and spring clips to change precisely the ride height and spring pre-load tension. If their performance ever fades, refresh them in minutes with our inexpensive rebuild kits.
Powder Coated White Springs
White springs feature a new spring rate for more responsive handling and the long-lasting white powder coated finish sets Stampede apart from the pack.
Motor Mount with Cooling Channels
The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. The molded motor plate includes finned cooling channels where the motor mounts to the motor plate. The cooling channels work in conjunction with the internal Titan 12T motor fan to pull air through the motor for superior cooling.
Brushless Ready Magnum 272™ Transmission
The Stampede's Magnum 272 transmission features metal gears riding on ultra-smooth sealed ball bearings. Combined with the smooth 48-pitch gears, power transfers quietly to the durable telescoping U-joint driveshafts. The sealed gearbox protects the transmission components from dirt and rocks. Best of all, the Magnum 272 is built Traxxas Tough™ to handle massive brushless power without the need for costly upgrades
Brushless Ready Planetary Gear Differential
The Traxxas planetary gear differential 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 power to the wheels.
Monster 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, and rocks.
