Welcome to my assessment of the monster truck unmanned Traxxas Stampede 2WD 1/10. This truck offers speed, power, stability, and in addition, it is fun to watch. It really pleases me, and I bet that you also please! Keep reading to discover how much fun you’ll have to play with the Traxxas Stampede. But beware: the more you know about the toy, the more you want to get one!
The first thing that came to my mind when I opened the box and I saw this fantastic monster truck, that he had actually look great, but it was much smaller than the two other Traxxas trucks that arrived at the same time.Although the car was pretty awesome, I was a little disappointed. However, all that changed when I tested the Stampede outside. I thought it was one of the most stable guided missiles and tireless with whom I have had the chance to play. Not only the Stampede is able to get out of the most difficult situations (p. Ex. In the presence of obstacles like tall grass or deep ditches), but it remains almost always on its four wheels. I did not expect that an unmanned truck 2WD be able to break free so easily, and I thought he was going to tip over at least once or twice at high speed and tight turns when traverse the donkey our back alley. I was far from reality!
How long does it take to assemble the Stampede?
Traxxas Stampede is ready to use right out of the box; however must charge your toy battery before use. It takes about 45 minutes. I planned a special section on batteries and chargers below.
What are the batteries used in the Stampede truck and how much is needed?
The remote Stampede runs on four AA batteries, while the truck requires a Power Cell NiMH rechargeable 3000 mAh 7 cells of 8.4 V. Further details can be found in the Batteries and Chargers section below.
What are the characteristics of mobility and range of the Traxxas Stampede truck?
The Stampede is easily reached a range between 60 and 90 meters, and its alleged top speed of over 48 km / h (or 30 mi / h). It has the functions of forward and reverse, is handled as well as any size truck and can run, jump and perform impressive maneuvers, provided there is sufficient space and the terrain is hilly.
The Stampede truck he offers sound and light effects?
Traxxas Stampede product features sounds you would expect from a miniature motor vehicle, as the roar of the engine! It does not have lights, by cons.
What is the age range suggested for users Stampede truck?
The age range suggested for the Stampede is 14 years old. It presents a “workout mode” that limits the throttle to 50% of its effectiveness, allowing less experienced users to use it. Despite this, I would rather not let children under 14 use the Stampede without supervision. This machine is so fast that it is very easy to lose control. If you hit someone at full speed, you could cause him serious injury. So, be careful!
Regarding the impressive effect, how the class Stampede truck on a scale of 0 to 5?
I give an excellent rating of 4.5 / 5 Traxxas Stampede. The only reason I did not give it a perfect score is that I have not yet tested and noted the two trucks unmanned Traxxas upscale; again, if I give 5/5, it will be impossible for me to give a higher rating if necessary.
Test and set
Playing with the Traxxas Stampede was really great! I was able to make several jumps and skids fun for the first 25 minutes of the test.By reading the box, I expect to play for 15 minutes, but I have far exceeded this time. Throughout my first attempt, I had to deal with standing water and dead leaves, but the Stampede does not care to. Since its parts and electronic accessories are resistant to water, it was just dirty. (Note that you must take extra care when using your vehicle in wet conditions. Please refer to the user guide for complete instructions in this regard.)
It is very easy to control the Stampede truck. To do this, you must use the transmitter Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz (shown at right). This remote control has a main dial on top that allows the truck to maneuver and a trigger underneath allowing you to switch between forward and reverse. You must pull the trigger (like using a water gun) to engage forward and push the trigger to engage reverse. For the brakes, you can reset the trigger in the middle (in its original position); However, to curb more effectively, you need to slightly push the trigger for a split second in the opposite direction to which the vehicle was moving. This ensures that the wheels briefly turn in the opposite direction, and it can produce incredible sudden stops. The remote also has a referral button on the far left, just below the indicator “on”. When this button is exactly in the middle, it is much easier to handle the vehicle. The switch “On / Off” on the remote control is located at the base of the handle, the narrow side (ie d. Just off the mark “Traxxas’ on the picture). Finally, there is a small red knob located on top of the remote control, which lets you change the power steering and the engine power. For most users, this button will be superfluous, unless the default settings are changed.
