How to Mod Your Stampede ECS NERF Gun.




In this instructable I will teach you to mod your stampede to be lighter, shoot faster, and be more efficient.

I got the idea for this instructable from seleziona's golden eclipse mod.


Step 1: Materials .

The materials you will need for this Mod are:

1 stampede NERF gun
2 4 AA battery holders
8 AA batteries
2 Alligator clips
some wire

small Phillips screwdriver
Soldering Iron

Step 2: Removing the Battery Compartment.

First, remove the screws holding the battery compartment in the gun. Next remove the battery compartment from the stock of the gun. then remove all batteries from the compartment and set them aside, you wont be needing them for the finished product.

Step 3: Preparing the Compartment.

To prepare the compartment you will need to cut out the pieces in the middle to allow the battery box to fit in.

Step 4: Time to Wire It Up!

For this step you first need to get the two battery boxes. then solder the fed wire from one to the black wire of the other, it should look like the picture above. then solder alligator clips to the remaining red and black wires. then position the boxes in the battery compartment and connect the red wire to the positive side f the compartment and the black to the negative side.(see picture)

Step 5: Put It Back Together

slide the compartment back into the gun and fasten the screws. Congratulations! you successfully moded a stampede  NERF gun!

    It is very very rare for a company to push more than 3/4 capacity out of stock motors. Ithink you may be confusing the minimum and maximum voltages. These are 6volt minimum motors, but can easily handle up to 12 without issue. More than that, you will burn morors out much quicker.

    you know the motor is only rated at 6v if I remember the last replacement, why do you use so many batteries.

    also looking at doing some thing similar but will be 3d printing a custom battery tray to suit a particular type of rc battery using dean plugs for looking clean

    Please stop spreading misinformation, the stampede runs 6 "D" batteries stock, which is 9 volts, it can handle quite a bit more voltage than that. Many people have been running 12-16 volts in it for years with no ill effects.

    sorry are you on drugs? im talking about the stock 6v motor not the number of batteries in it.

    yes you can use higher voltage and it may last fine but it may also fry the motor which happens alot.

    if you upgrade the batteries then a smart person would also upgrade the motor.

    still not sure what you are trying to tell me that i dont already know???

    DarrenF4: if you have seen any YouTube videos on modding Stampedes, the higher rate-of-fire speaks for itself. I aim someday to boost my own Stampedes to around 16V, in addition to installing stronger springs for greater range.

    yeah but with the stock motor you will just keep frying it. as most of the modders keep mentioning.

    So one buys stronger motors and learns to install them... :-)

    to the equivalent of 6v so four batteries. a lot of people complain of frying the motor.

    iv done my 3d print of battery holder and using a small rc battery pack (cant remember rating right now) its working a treat and so much easier to deal with for recharging. a lot lighter to for the kids
