now that was a good score!!!! free shipping to boot? lol they will loose money on that deal.

i have chasis with A arms. i'll send it to you to to the upgrade haha, or just give the list of what you are ordering so i know what to get. it will probably cost more than the truck itself.

after i payed i thought i could have splurgged and got priority shipping. haha

then he emails me and says if youhave any second thoughts i have someone else offering more money, i'll refund you +5.

i ordered 2 front shock sets at 8 bucks each.

bottle of shock oil for 3 bucks

1 stock front/rear shock mount kit for 4 bucks-wasnt sure they had the hardware needed and they only had 1 in stock

so i bought a composite rear shock mount with hardware for 11.00.

came in at 36 bucks with shipping. yours if you can get a stock mount will be about 15 bucks other wise about 20ish.

look up rc18mt shocks, theres a seller called toadstoys i believe, he also has a online store which is where i bought from.

remember 8 dollar front shock kit, and the rear shock mount-they have several to choose from, ive gotta small dremel and 100s of attachements im gonna use to try and make mine look like it belongs like that, if ya need i can put yours on to, after i master the art on these 2 i have


i may have a nice bumper for that bandit you have

i did actually get to keep my bandit, i sent a request to cancel and luckily the winner accepted since he didnt want the duty taxes and extra shipping fee, guess ill keep that one for awhile
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 17, 2011, 10:39:20
are you also doing the hobby upgrade?

and yeah once you master it. do th shock springs come in different colors?

but a bumper would be great, i was thinking about taking th 2 smiley lights of my hopper and using them on it.
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: performerrpm on January 17, 2011, 15:00:08
yeah, im still trying to decide on which parts to put in it, i hate to spend 200 bucks hobby grading it with new stuff that will probaly kill the gears, id rather spend a 100 bucks to do that, ive seen some stock take offs for the mini slash that looks like i could get the radio/reciever and speed control/servo for around 100 so im probaly gonna go that route, problem is there rated for 8.4volts i hope 9.6 dont kill it
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 17, 2011, 22:51:17
ahh, yeah i'm not touching anything to make it hobby grade, cause..... i will kill it and dont know anything about the hobby elctronics.

i wasn't at my computer to get that cheap red banidt only 101
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: Tyco Bandit King on January 19, 2011, 12:37:49
If you take a hobby speed control thats rated for 8.4 volts and plug a 9.6 it will pop as soon as you plug it in.


Remember this tho, if you upgrade to hobby electronics the speed control will be a major boost in power alone. The outlaw that I put a hobby system went from not be able to keep with a bandit to being able to outrun a bandit.


Most likely you can run a good bit more power with hobby electronics and just an 8.4v but the life of your gears will be decreased significantly. Just wait till I can have the gears machined, then we can go ape *censored*and throw all the power we want at them, next thing will be getting new tires made

Post by: performerrpm on January 23, 2011, 05:36:46
did the bandit make it yet cz? how is it?


oh yeah, that red bandit that sold for 100 bucks was won by that guy who has all the bandits listed and has the mint diff on ebay, he says the bandit is not in great condition so probally better you got the black one and not the red.....especially at 15 bucks
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 23, 2011, 08:41:24
yeah i know he won  it. but it hasn't come yet, i should have paid for priority mail.

but did you see my eliminator traxx?
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: performerrpm on January 23, 2011, 09:41:34
yeah it was pretty cool but you should by a hammer and put the eliminator stickers on it so it will look like the actuall eliminator traxx in the pictures
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: Dragon on January 23, 2011, 12:28:48
Why in the world would someone list a Tyco Bandit as JUST A "1/16 R/C NISSAN TRUCK TYCO" ?!? That was an awesome find for $14.95!  :o
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 23, 2011, 12:59:52
yeah i want to get my hands on a hammer sooner or later.


and i have no idea why he listed it like that, it does say bandit right on the side. but i dont think it was even up 15 mins before i got it.
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 24, 2011, 22:28:53

Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: performerrpm on January 25, 2011, 02:13:03
i found it in there, just below the baja bandit, its shame the bandits dont get upright privaledges...lol


as long as you dont drive it to hard the jb weld will probally hold, but any rough hits and its history
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 25, 2011, 09:49:00
haha i know itsn't that sad the 4x4's do and the eliminators do(i guess once i have the pairs they will sit upright). i was thinking maybe about drilling holes and wrapping wire around, or if all fails i'll put it on a different chasis.

but i also added a bumper to my black wild thing, and got the hood and roof stickers to my 27mhz eliminator on.

also yesterday i hooked up a bandit end to an eliminator board and there was basically no power to the rear. i was surprised. and bumbed out.

on this bandit i got it has the little slide switch, not the long one that pivots on one point. looks like an eliminator switch. is this right? were the newer one like this?

And finally i had a dream, about there being a wild thing bandit! can you picture this? black body neon yellow wheels. maybe a neon bumper or black with the tyco r/c lights on them in neon lettering. then the back two small windows the neon yellow, then over the drivers window and maybe the passengers, the bright yellow netting like on the hoppers then the little guy in there with his head turning. then the roll bar in the bed could be neon yellow or black to match the bumper
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: bandit01 on January 25, 2011, 21:35:32
i know the newer bandits have the slide switch older ones have the lever type.    that would be cool   turbo wild bandit  lol
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 25, 2011, 22:01:32
yeah, i was kinda picturing the MONSTER drink colors, so now i need to find i black bandit body, i have wild thing stickers. i know one guy on here has them but he hasn't been on. hmmm
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 25, 2011, 23:16:03

Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: performerrpm on January 26, 2011, 03:50:08
i knew when i seen it ended early you probaly got it, the red one. i had asked him if he would sell early and he said yeah but i never made an offer, mainly cause im hangin tight for the chance at scorchers hd truck.



how much did you get it for? i figured 80-100 would get it as quick as he responded to my email.


if i were you id say negatory on the wire fix, for under 20 bucks you can fix it right......buy the parts and send it to me and ill do it for ya
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 26, 2011, 09:53:01
no try 165. i'll put the right remote with it. the guy came strait out and said i need to get 159 plus shipping.sp i thought well i did get this other one for 14.95 average it out each cost me about 90 bucks.

i was looking at hd truck and it kinda looks like it this the bandit body on an eliminator chasis, i mean it does have the large bumper, but i cant tell just from pictures.

what do you think about my idea for a wild thing bandit?

and i probably will have you do the shocks
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: performerrpm on January 26, 2011, 15:17:57
165 isnt terrible, that one red one sold for 200 which was a rip even if it did include the outlaw body.

the hd looks to me just as you described it, but i cant figure out how they mounted the body, i tried fitting a bandit body to a eliminator and the side bars get in the way.


im thinking the wild thing bandit will be something i have to see, im having a hard time imagining it
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 26, 2011, 16:56:49
well, i thought as long as the average of the two is 100 a peice its a good deal.  i did bid up to 182 on that one with the outlaw.

i need a black bandit body to make the wild thing bandit, i'm picturing it as a sick off road truck haha

and yeah the eliminator body doesn't fit on the fast traxx body right either, i twisty tied the back down which you can see.
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: performerrpm on January 27, 2011, 03:52:41
really 182? dayum, that bandit was not very nice, not near as nice as nice as the red one you got imo, even if ya didnt get the outlaw
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 27, 2011, 11:09:45
well i had plans for the parts out law and to sell it as something else then haha
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: stan on January 27, 2011, 21:08:00
theres a guy selling off his collection. he has 3 rebounds 4wd mutator, outlaw truck,  and i asked him how much he was looking to get per car.  He said 10-15 bucks.  you want his email if your interested in picking some up?
Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 27, 2011, 21:23:27

Title: Re: check out what i just got
Post by: czstycor/c on January 27, 2011, 23:33:51
