    They will mount up since the Bandit and Slash use the same trans, but it's gonna make the rear end stupid wide.

    Are you having issues breaking the stock rear arms or something?

    No I don't even own one yet lol

    Getting a big wishlist going, I'll just get a rustler and put a bandit body on, it's too confusing

    The bandit body will drop right on a rustler right?

    Yes it will. Any reason you want an extra wide bandit?

    Lots of people do it, but a buggy with stadium truck arms and wheels can look a little crazy. I'm not saying it will look bad, just that it can look a little extreme. Tiny little buggy body and huge wheels all around it.

    I just like the look better, and it will probably be better for high speeds

    I thought slash rear arms were actually shorter? Allowing you to use the same wheels front and back?

    No, the Slash arms are a little shorter than Rustler arms. The Bandit arms are quite a bit shorter than either of the truck arms mentioned.

    To the OP, if you want to run Slash arms on a Bandit, do yourself a favor and just buy a Rustler because that's basically what you will end up with.

    And yes, the Bandit body will fit fine on the Rustler once you remove the front body mounts.


    Here's another option if you're really just wanting green rear arms:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-TRX-...item4605282d62

    These are the same arms as the Bandit's. They're just the older version that came on the TRX-1 and TRX-3 in white. You can dye them any color you like.

    here is a bandit, still as a buggy, with rusty arms:


    the rear slash arms with rusty ft arms will make it look a little wider in front, just like stock.
    Wanna bash at Greenwood Bashplex in Pittsburgh ???

    Looks good to me, I can't wait to be able to afford one with all the upgrades I need, well I would be better off buying a roller but I can only find the one's with bushings for bearings, it's a rip off.

    actually just found one today, hopefully I can find one when I need it

    Find one is easy, find one when you need it is harder though...
