I havent done a full rear end swap just yet, but if i were to do one it would be with either the tamiya midnight pumpkin or grasshopper rear end to keep with width down. then yes you could brushless it all you want

so i put different plastic steering pieces on and that helped some but it didn't fix it completely. if its not on the ground it does straiten out for the most part. and i went to test it and of course i have no charged battery.

that tamiya hornet housing looks like it could be made to fit the bandit easy enuff, if i could figure out the wheel mounting this might be something tht happens soon, and it looks like it holds 540 motor too.


what bruhless motor would be good to use, and esc servo and radio would be upto the task? i think i will do this to the spare chassis i have sitting in the drawer

best way to go is by using a traxxas velineon brushless speed control and motor with an fm radio for less interference.

The you would wanna setup the steering using a micro servo. Might even wanna make your own steering link with minimal drilling involved.

the grasshopper rear end might be a better way to go as its a 380 and would save space since you are already gonna be cramming that rear end under there, you need all the space you can get. You might check the width first because the rear ends will be wider than the bandit
