    The NEW Bandit/Rustler Gallery - Post your pictures here!

    Welcome to the Bandit/Rustler Gallery, a place where everyone can show off pictures of their latest bodies, or latest chassis modifications. Feel free to list all of your current hop-ups, etc.


    Here are the rules :

    1: This thread is for pictures only, if you have a question for one of the people posting a picture, please send them an e-mail or a PM so the thread doesn't get cluttered with chit-chat. (if you are posting a picture, please make sure your preferences are set to receive PM's from other members)

    2: Maximum picture size should be 640x480 (preferably smaller) so it will fit on most people's computer screens without scrolling, and to be considerate to those on a dial-up connection. Anything larger will be deleted.

    3: Anything off topic will be deleted.

    4: Any "dead" links - you guessed it - deleted.

    Okay, enough with the rules - HAVE FUN!



    Misbehavin' wrote this nice FAQ on how to put pictures in your post.

    The original thread can be found here, but it is closed and no longer maintained because of numerous dead links.
    Speed costs money, how fast do you want to go?

    For old time's sake







    running rustler arms front and rear & an srt front tower. The body is the 1st gen bandit vxl, sans cockpit area. I think it gives it an open wheel racer look.

    My New VXL Rusty with New Owned Wheelie Bar

    Traxxas wheelie bar can't help anything when it's fast and increase more speed

    Now Top speed is 51.33 mph with spur 76t and pinion 28t, I'm waiting to order new bigger pinion for getting more speed.




    ps. FLM chassis , upper chassis, bulkhead and castle block are waiting to fix them up after trying top speed....

    Here's both of mine. The blue one originally had a MSC and no slipper clutch, now it has been upgraded slightly with the Velineon system, new body, Masher 2000's, RPM A-arms, new steel geared tranny, bearings throughout, Big Bore shocks and a whole bunch of other stuff I can't think of right now. The red one is pretty much a stock VXL with RPM caster blocks and front and rear bearing carriers.

    Bad idea with the yellow ESC, it's not waterproof and most likely the servos aren't
    And there he goes with the carbon...
