My daughters favorite rapidstrike's motors died off, and i am looking for a way to replace with current stock in house. Is there a mod out there that i have missed that takes the stampede's firing components, and integrates them into a rapidstrike cs-18? (family nerf hide and seek will benefit from this...)
Stampede firing mechanism modded into a rapidstrike?

That'd be a pretty advanced integration. You could just replace the motors with aftermarket motors for a few bucks, not sure how/if they'd run on stock wiring and AA's though.

I don't mind the work, in fact its fun to play around. As for the stampede, i have one i use (upgraded from the stock battery compartment to ultrafires with a harness), and her biggest complaint is she cannot hear me coming, whereas i can hear her easily, so this would be a win/win if possible. I have done some googling, but i have not seen this type of work thus far. Worst case scenario, she uses a strongarm for a few days, and if there isn't a guide/proven concept out there, i can try myself.
On a different note, to be more exact on how it "died off", the motors spool up still, however when the white pusher arm makes contact with the dart, it almost seems to consider that fully extended, and keeps kicking up to where the dart it, but wont send it through the wheels. Perhaps that may be an easier fix than motor replacements/integrations?

That might be some kind of jam. If you open it up it might just be something out of alignment.
Integrating a stampede into the shell would be basically taking a stampede and wrapping a rapidstrike around it. It'd be different levels of 'hard' depending on how far you wanted to go.

I don't think that the full internals would even fit inside in the first place. Not to mention the completely different firing systems. I'd say your best bet is to crack open the rapidstrike and diagnose the problem. Your next step would most likely be to either get new motors or fix the old ones. (if possible)
