Nice pics you guys, some of your cars have incredible mods!
I bought this Bandit back in 1997, this is it in "car park" trim. I run minipins when running on AstroTurf tracks.
The electronics are vintage too:
In terms of mods, I've forgotten some things over the years, but here is what I can remember:
* Ball races all round.
* 4WD buggy wheels from Ansmann. Had to drill these bigger myself so they would fit. (I just hated the non-standard sized Bandit front wheels)
* Rustler front axels to be able to screw on the non-stop wheels. (Bandit ones too short)
* Non-Traxxas springs cannot remember what, but much softer. (I found the stock ones absolutely useless on bumpy tracks)
* Turnbuckles all round.
* Steel Drive Yoke Set.
* Coralliy Street Touring Motor, 16 turn Double.
This is my 1st paint job, I call it the pumpkin racer.
IHaul this is a picture thread, not a quote and criticize thread.
I think the red aluminum looks fantastic btw...at least until he crashes it!
Right after I bought my rusty!

I broke a Rear Arm running into a tree. Decided to see how the whole thing was put together so I took it all apart. Plasti-Dipped some parts in Red and then put it back together. FYI I'm a Noob

Hey guys, this is my first post. I'm just starting to get my rustler up and running again. I haven't ran it in a couple years. I'm currently waiting on a part to fix my rustler. Also ordered some new off road tires, old ones are bald, and I only have some street tires. It's completely stock, and in need of a new body. Try not to laugh...
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.
