I dont know about that, but one of my customers is a machinist and is willing to make me some aluminum gears for the bandit in exchange for car parts.

theres only one problem with doing that, injection molded plastic and similar is not something that your gonna find alot if any small companies doing, you would have to actually get in touch with a company and see if they could copy what you have but then your gonna pay for time and tooling just for the set up. the cost is in the mold and set up, so making one wheel most likeley wouldnt be worth it, the only sensible thing to do if ya were gonna try and pull that off is have alot of them made and hope you can sell them.

probally better to get another sfast traxx.

no, fo mac is the name of an injection molding company, you call a place like that and throw it in the air just to see what it would cost,


i was thinking about it a while ago, it would be nice to find a place to make us some replacement parts, that guy who made the treads for fast traxx had to go somewhere
