Replaced Traxxas Stampede suspension arms with RPM A-arms

Posted: 2014-06-06

Had a slight accident with my stampede (Traxxas VXL Stampede 4X4) the other day - hit a jump ramp at slightly the wrong angle and bust a suspension arm.

After some reading online - most people were pointing out that RPM's third party suspension arms were stronger - so I grabbed two sets.

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.
