    Wow...I had zero interest in a Bandit until I saw this thread. Dang it, you are going to cost me money!

    lol Jimmy! - The Bandit is an iconic RC for me... may be just a basher for some, but do one up right and it can be one awesome machine!.

    I went looking for a car that resembled my old Metro/Tyco RC Jet hopper turbo from back in the 80's, the Bandit was the closest to it . Phoenix will never be sold so the $$ put into her isn't an issue for me

    Well, my 78T Pro-line spur gear arrived today and now allows me to fit my 31T pinion with a little room to move!, so as soon as this rain clears up, i can get her back out for some speed runs in a better location.





    Mastermax - here's the photo showing the hex adapter and what it allows you to fit.

    Just ordered the last lot of upgrades for Phoenix - A Protek 130S Servo, RPM front arms and another set of red alum caster blocks, and finally another set of Pro-line Slipper clutch pads - The pads are stuck to the spur so you cant take them off without ruining them.

    Cheers fellas!, coming right along!, with some new videos not far off.

    Mastermax - It's like Christmas all over again every time we order new upgrades hey! - hopefully the new carriers fix your wheel wobbles!. Maybe you had some dodgy bearings.

    Stach, your Bandit is awesome! The pictures with the black offroad wheels and tires make my jaw drop. While I did enjoy your story in the beginning, there's no time quite like the present. Keep it up I'm staying tuned for the vids

    Well Stach, I'm gonna blame this on you. I am about halfway through converting a Slash to a Rustler and also looking for Bandit bodies. Thanks for sharing again!

    Haha!, sorry Jimmy! lol. Its just so addictive.. and yeah, my wallets been lightened a fair amount too lol

    Always a pleasure to share!

    Here's also the latest unboxing of parts

    I found my Bandit body on Ebay.com and it came from i think extreme rc in Florida I believe. Traxxas do not sell any bodies for the Bandit which I find annoying!

    Well, spent a good few hours putting the Protek 130S servo in today.. used my GoPro hero3 silver to film it... had to trim the upper chassis to fit the aluminium Protek Servo horn which was a bit of fiddling around, that and the receiver wire was only just long enough to fit.

    Any how, i bought an LCD bacpac for the GroPro Hero 3 so it was a lot easier filming when I could see where it was looking picture wise... checking the videos later on my computer, the quality is crap and can barely hear the sound... so that's the how to video wasted!... will have to just do an after video outside tomorrow showing the new servo working.

    One awesome thing I will say though... Is that this PTK-130S Protek servo is amazing! - craps all over the Hitech that I put in Phoenix and is that powerful and fast, it can shuffle across the floor and it slightly bends the chassis when i turn the remote wheel while im holding the car! lol!, talk about torque!

    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 software sometime.

    Will check out the thread when you get it up .

    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 Wild Killer RC by HaiBoxing
