well there will be one bandit thats not gonna get out ran by the outlaw....lol


i just got my shock parts and did the first one, i didnt get enuff small stuff to do both. its so much easier than i thought it would be, i just have some triming to do around the original shock area that im gonna sand off with the dremmel, but otherwise its done, its nite/day comparison in the front just smashing down or dropping the front end down on the floor.
next will be to get some hobby rear shocks and fit them to it, also im gonna see if theres some trimming on the gear box that will give it a lil more travel in the back, but i wont do that til i have some shocks.

looks like ill just bite the bullet for the mamba esc so i can run it with a 9.6 nimh battery pack. hopefully 45 mph+ will be doable with the eliminator gears and lipo in the future, iam only shooting for top speed, hopefully i can get it where it doesnt get full power at once and strip the gears

tbanditking, have you looked at the mamba sidewinder micro? does brushed or brushless and lipo or ni cd and also 15 volt max, looks like all the bandit could ever use and at 60 bucks not to bad. what do u think?

i did the other bandit, both bandits are set up for it, but only parts to finish one, anyhow, the one that was a running bandit with only a shock problem is now fixed and what a difference it made. i compared it to the non modded black one thats like new, if you stand them both up on there back bumper and drop, the modded one doesnt even bounce once, the stock bandit bounces 2-3 times.


when i jumped it to test it out, the front is silent no clunks ust a smoot landing til the back hits the ground then it bounces and makes some noise, im gonna do the back shocks next, the plan is to use the little shock screws with the ball that sticks out about an 1/8th inch away from the base of the screw, drill and install in the body peg the stock shocks mount too, this should move the shocks to the inside at the top and let the suspension move a little better, that and the better shocks i think the bandit maybee upto the task of going fast!

oh yeah, nevermind drilling holes for the shock mount.....too much a pita!!!!

i used a small pic heated it up after scratching the spot for the holes, used the pic to make nice round holes in the plastic.

since my 2 bandits im using had been fixed before by melting the shock tower back, i decided after breaking them back off to take the dremel and sanding roll and take the 3 little ridges off the chassis and smooth out both sides of the chassis so you couldnt even tell there ever was stock shock mount there

got me a radio and reciever, probally not the greatest but i think it will work with the what im trying to do, its a traxxas 27.255 deal, was gonna maybee buy something fancy but, for 15 bucks i figured this is worth a try

hopefully it will work with the mamba sidewinder and ill be set

Do not get the sidewinder, its junk. In order to be able to tune the car you need to get the mamba micro pro speed control. You can plug it up to the computer using the castle link and tune all the power settings, its worth all $20 more.

After building tons of ungodly fast rc cars that are not supposed to be fast the best advice I can offer you is not to start out with a hi-volt battery. If you are using brushless get the lowest volt battery like a 7.2 to get you warmed up. The car will have enough power that you probably wont need much more till its uncontrollable. You will be surprised how fast 40mph is with something that small and the trouble isnt getting to that speed its how to stop. A 40mph+ crash and you can kiss the whole car good bye so just be super careful and warm up before you go trying to break 40mph, that is if you have the radar to track it. If you see 30mph you will think its 50mph and trying to control a car that small at 30mph is a real task even if you know what your doing.

I have started out using my rough wild thing to convert to a hobby car and do speed runs in since its no loss if it gets wrecked. I installed the losi 370 motor and will be using the micro pro with a 7.4 and fm radio. I will probably turn the power all the way down to start till i see what its really capable of. For a car like this its gonna require 2x the stopping distance than running distance so keep that in mind when you go out to test it and do not drive it on anything thats not perfectly flat.

As far as running the motor, if you plan on either doing 7.4v lipo and or running brushless then make sure you take the axle apart and drill the holes out on the motor plate and screw the motor in so it doesnt flex or break off the plastic tabs.

thanks for the info, ill use the micro pro, at just 20 bucks more, i was gonna go ahead and go with a brushed motor probaly just the same one you used in the wild thing, its cheap at 20 bucks, the first thing ill do is get the motor put in the diff right now that ive mastered the wheel removal...........i can pop a set of wheels off a bandit without a scratch in about 1 minute, i can put them on almost as fast.
