Hey guys! So I was going to rebuild the Bandit Roller I picked up in the Traxxas Alley a little while back. I did some research and noticed the selection of upgrades was very minimum. I was convinced by a fellow friend ( Petertje60 ) to go Rustler. So this is the route I will be taking. This opens up to more choices in tires, bodies, & other accessories. At the moment i'm not really going to take this thing to like a speed rustler build or anything. I don't really have a place to have that kind of fun.
Anyways I have a lot of work set forth in front of me. I still have yet fully to take a part this rig. My plans are to tear into the Tanny, inspect, clean up, & replace what is worn. Other things are to dye the chassis and any gray part black. This build will probably be slow and over time. I'm wrapping up a huge project at work and tons of other work along the way. The little guy is in soccer and my 2 precious ladies & him to entertain in the evening. They are my life so...... hoping to complete by November if not sooner. I get real antsy and if I see a lot of parts sitting in front of me I get really motivated and move faster. LOL
Here is a list of what I got in this past weekend. I'll build the list of the spare parts in the coming week or so. Also another big package of goodies by next week. Ooooh lala.
