Keep us posted! :)
I run my Bandit on the street mainly and used to run 31/76 on the stock vxl ready gearbox it came with - using a hobbywing 4000kv 9T and 2S - no prob's with heat at all. With the speed runs you need...
Not sure Mastermax, I've moved house last weekend so have been busy the last two weeks. Will ring my friend here who runs the last shop I was at, and find out. Stay tuned!.
Ok - so they're off a...
I went the Protek -130S and haven't looked back :)
Do you have an older model Bandit?, my XL5 came with 26/76 stock - and accelerates plenty fast with that set up and 2.2" wheels.
Id maybe try the 28 pinion instead of the 31 optional, too tall for racing.
I've had two Hobbywing brushless systems, both great and have been very reliable for me.
RPM front A arms now on Phoenix so on both front and rear now... and have an aluminium upper deck/chassis on its way! :)
Love your work mate :)
All I can say is have a look around here and on you tube, plenty around on the subject - one could be here going through it with you for a long time other wise.
Wicked build Atothep! - love the way it looks, and awesome to see someone going outside the box on the Bandit. Love the rear rustler anacondas on the bandit, the raked stance looks mint! :)
Just wanted to apologize for my last post saying 3-3.5 turns out... was thinking about the pro-line trans in my Bandit lol... Good one!! :|.
Looking at the Traxxas recommendations i'd try about a...
Could try a better servo! :)
Well.. from everything I've read/seen on the net regarding the Bandit/Rustler clutches - a fair few have recommended the 3-3.5 turns off fully in. I'd still try that and see if it stops it stripping...
Id have the slipper clutch at least 3, to 3 and half turns from fully on, a half turn out wouldn't allow much slip at all. Id say that's the problem.
Cant say I've ever seen the HW WP-SC8 branded as a Leopard esc before... Strange! - I have the HW version and haven't had any prob's at all, touch wood
Its a handful stock with a 3S - it'll be insane up near 100mph!. Which pinion are you going with to get the most speed out of it?
The Bandit is the most iconic RC for me, you'll have loads of fun with it, especially upgrading stuff :)
I run 2 x 2S 5000mah lipo's in my Summit. Charging time for both lipo's is about 60 mins together. Having a dual 2S charging adapter cuts the time in half for charging :). I use the Traxxas ezpeak 6...
Sounds like its in a discovery mode, im not big with Castle stuff as yet, but if in doubt I'd contact Castle about it.
I'm running the Power Strokes on my Bandit, awesome shock. I'm running a 40wt oil in them at present.
Nice conversion dude!, A great run down on a very nice,(now), Rusty! :)
Looks very nice MM!, SMOOTH! is how id describe the paint job youve done there, very smooth!, I likes! :).
Love what youre doing and look forward to seeing it progress!, Bandits rule btw ;)
Awesome to hear MasterMax!, Appreciate the kind words and always happy to help!.
Still a bit of a noob when it comes to making the youtube vids so will keep at it. Maybe try some better editing...
I went for the Traxxas 3 cell 6400 mah - great lipo! :)
