    Gitten er done!!

    Well, I'm just about finished with this nitro killer, started off as a Rustler VXL, well, it still is, but with just about every upgrade I could find except for the chassis. still havent decided on that, aluminum or composite?
    Got an easy thousand into it already not counting my MaxAmps gear.
    I'm the worst in the world.

    RPM Front Bumper, A-Arms, and Caster Blocks
    T-Bone Racing Rear Bumper

    Steel Idler
    And many, many replacement parts and gears


    The aftermath of the wreck:

    I built this Bandit from scratch last week, with parts I bought on eBay... Has a Titan 12T motor and a XL-5 ESC, but everything else was built with VXL parts... Someday I'll buy a Velineon for it...
