Nice! Thats a good way to start out. Losi sells a sweet bolt on and plug in rock light kit for 20 bucks. The TCS 4 link kit is cheap and nice too.

another good upgrade would be to get a high torque steering servo.

tossed in a 20 turn motor i had for a lil fun in the parkin lot across the street. it was a blast but sucked to crawl no power at all. might swap it back in when it snows. i kinda want a stampede now too, so i can go fast as well.

The MIPs are damn near indestructable as far as I can tell. Good choice.

The esc is dead so i went to ebay and ended up with a XL5 waterproof speed control from traxxas. this thing works so much better. not sure if its the esc or the 4 link and rovers since i did it all at once, but it wheels so much better.

ended up ordering the gmade transitions. they are a lil shorter but still plenty of travel and it should lower the rig a bit which i want.
