    ha you'll have no problems with this hobby man you're asking all the right questions. I thought the stampede 4x4 would be a top heavy clunker too. But honestly I never really had a problem with roll overs. I attribute this to the low chassis design as well as the 4wd. This gives you a TON of gyroscopic control over the truck in a turn. It keeps itself upright and stable. All of this even before a anti-roll bar upgrade!

    What about upgrades just to get started?

    - A second NiMH and connector OR can I/should I run a Lipo in this?
    - Any additional waterproofing I need to do?
    - Quick charger

    Any other upgrades...again, just to get started? Thanks!
    make sure to put grease on the rubber o-ring on the receiver box so its waterproof, and then i would highly recommend lipo. not only for power but much better runtimes. just remember to be careful with lipo. i also would suggest the Mini Summit. same platform, just more capable offroad.

    welcome to the site I think Traxxas is PERFECT for you and especially nerve because it is so tough that's why it is better than others
