My wife got me a Traxxas Grave Digger 1/10 for xmas. I haven't RCed for 20 years (Losi buggy). I have 6 and 7 year old kids.
I went to the local hobby shop and got a wheelie bar, as I've found this to be a necessity. I inquired about motor, charger, etc and was overwhelmed. I've researched your fine website and honestly am still overwhelmed.
I'd like to upgrade to brushless motor/ESC combo, LiPo battery and quick charger. I know I'd be opening a can of worms if I asked which is "best", so I'll try to be more specific. I'd like to keep it all Traxxas if possible. I'm somewhat technologically challenged and want to keep it simple. But even within Traxxas stuff there are still dozens of motors, ESCs, batteries, mAh, voltages, VXLs, 2s, 3s, etc. I'm interested in long running time, quick charging, ability to charge NiMH and LiPo on one charger, ability to change to half speed for kids while having brushless/LiPo with push button (like stock) and waterproof. This will be used mainly in grass/dirt, small to medium jumps. Sand (and potentially ocean) is important for summer vacation. I don't really know where to start.
I'm also looking for a wider front bumper. The Stampede (and wide RPM) bumper attaches with 2 screws. The Grave Digger "front" attaches with six and would be preferable. Black is fine for color.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
