if you wouldnt have broke out you wouldve won lol. In scale its still faster than any NHRA car out there. 53.330mph is pretty darn fast in my opinion. Consider some guys will risk their car and sometime life to do a speed run on the freeway or main road just to hit 50mph. Cant wait to see the video. Next dial in lower so you dont break out lol.

Right now its geared at 28/76, I tried playing with 31/76 but lost all bottom end and ran out of room at 132'. I might go with a bigger battery first and then try some 32p gearing combo's. Even being extended it still wants to pull half track wheelies.
All I can say is that thing is off the chain, stupid sick looking and I so want one lol Nice build man absolutely love it
Let's Go Steelers!!!... KCCO
Yes bigger punch would help alot. SMC has good batteries for a decent price. Try to get a C rating thats close to your amp rating on your ESC. Like if your ESC is 100amp try to get a 60-75C battery. A bigger mah wouldnt help you much since the burst potential of a lipo comes off the top. Can you raise the timing on your ESC so you can gear up to 76/31? Also does you ESC have a "turbo" function. Its a variable timing function that you could have your timing low on launch then ramp up for the top end down the track. Looks like she could use a little weight and/or a spoiler up front to keep that nose down and the throttle open.

Hey all, it's been a while since I have had the chance to make any runs or even get on the forum but we are heading out this afternoon so I'll be sure to post some results! Wish me luck!
You've been wished! Love your build!

This is honestly the sickest Bandit that I've ever seen. I'd love to see a video of this thing driving. Keep the updates coming.
These are a couple videos I posted a while back, I need to do a better job at getting some more footage.
Nice videos. You ever thought about putting a little bit of weight in the front to help keep the front wheels on the ground a little better? Looks like the front started to lift in one of the videos. That thing is still just sick... Makes me want to build a bandit..lol.
The little bit of added weight shouldn't make that much of a difference, just may take you a little longer to reach top speed. I would go with a wheely bar that doesn't allow the front to come up at all. Where the wheels of the wheely bar almost touch the ground before you even take off, that way it doesn't allow the front to come up.
Thanks for the tips! I still have a bunch of testing and tuning to do so we'll see what happens and I will try to do a better job with posting updates lol
How did you put these wheels on? I am on the edge of building one and want these tires. Also put a losi 10t wing on the rear, go on YouTube for further questions.
Bad *** bandit man, really inspired me to do one, I added a few mods to make it alittle better, I fixed the sterling problem u had added a wing and I'm in the process of putting a smaller one on the front, I still don't know what wheels to put on it, I just don't know how to post a pic of it on here
This is sick, I want to get into some drag racing, any more updates you have?
I want to try to make a bandit like this now
Is your rear diff locked?
