What about a Trinity Speed Gem 10 turn Triple that any good? Yes I know I need new speed control.

if ur also going to rrun it off road i suggest u get around a 15 turn or triple cuz they give me a lot of torque. but if ur going to use a 10 turn and run it off road. the power is useless. i suggest u get a p2k,speedgems(15 above),chameleon,GM3.

Why would a 10 turn be a waste of power?

the drivetrain cant take that kind of abuse, even upgraded
the car isnt meant to go that fast, and it would handle like crap (but you would defently need to upgrade your steering)
and even with a 3k pack you run times would be 5 minutes, RACERS dont even use 10 turns, at least for buggies.
you would also need to cut the comm alot, and the motor even then only has so many runs on it.
if you are bashing get like a 15 turn or something.
you will thank yourself later,
if you want a 10 turn get a xxx. (or if you are messed up get a b3, but the xxx is sooo much better, BEST BUGGY EVER!!)

oh yeah speed isnt da only thing dat makes ur car faster...so buying a lower turn motor isnt da only thing dat can make ur car faster

honestly, YES, it makes the largest difference, however if you cant steer its not worth it, upgrade your steering, then talk about going below a 15t. and if you want to go fast, get a xxxt, they rock, rusleters are good bashers though.

Personally I'd say anything below a 12 turn is insane. Even that is plenty fast enough. Like everys been saying here you'll wind up with a LOT of maintenance if you go with a 10 turn...but if you've got the cash to replace parts and keep the motor going then hey, give it a whirl.

the motor even with rebuilds will only last 20 runs at that low of a turn, its just not worth it for bashing, go nitro if you want fast, just not a nitro 1/10 2wd buggy, thats uncontrollable

You resurrected a 5 1/2-year-old thread full of bad advice and misinformation to add "ok soundslike fun"!!!???

Get a brushless system, would look sweet for a Bandit to fly past the B4 and XXX buggies and even the Triple X-4's at your local track lol

i have a bandit that i used to run an 11 turn motor that i had to overgear to get top speed, that ruined the motor in 2 months, i was fun! but costly, i current run a 15 turn motor in my bandit, not as fast as the 11 turn but it will do, i went to a touring car to satisfy my need for speed on the street. if you are curious, this was the 11 turn motor i ran and i really liked it,
