JConcepts stampede cover

I don't like the Traxxas Stampede. I think it's a great truck but I never understood the elevated chassis. Maybe because as a kid I spent countless hours trying to lower the center of gravity of my Tamiya Blackfoot. I also have an old Traxxas Hawk. That was an awesome truck. Why did they feel the need to raise this chassis? The truck is a high speed basher not a low speed crawler. It even comes with a 12T motor and a wheelie bar! Now that I'm done whining about it's perceived design flaw lets talk about it's virtues. The Stampede is tough as nails, it's inexpensive, you get spares and upgrades at Pep Boys, and most importantly, it carries the torch lit by my precious Blackfoot all those years ago. Now this chassis cover is available for it and I think it's brilliant. I know these things are water resistant and everything but think of how much cleaner it will be after a day of bashing with this thing on. Now go buy one.

Illuzion – Stampede 4×4 – over-tray – protects chassis from excessive debris
(Fits Stampede 4×4)

When racing on a loamy or top soil track surface the inside of the Stampede 4×4 chassis can become loaded with dirt or debris which creates extra weight. With the JConcepts over-tray these worries are minimized with the simple and functional over-tray. Fitting nicely under the body; the JConcepts over-tray hugs the outside dimension of the Stampede 4×4 chassis protecting the inside from unwanted excess dirt and debris build-up during racing conditions. By minimizing resting surface area the void and protrusion free design is all about performance.
The over-tray is snug around the entire chassis structure while being attached with hook and loop tape around the sides and a slide-in fit in the front for easy access. The over-tray is built with extra height and rake to provide extra room for various electrical and battery configurations.
