Yea, being so close to Christmas probably had something to do with it, since everyone's spare pocket money is probably spent by now.  Making a video would be a good idea, if I had a camcorder that is, lol.  I'm not sure how much a video would help though anyways since anyone who is into RC knows practically any modern day RC could out perform any old Tyco.  I wish I had a bunch of Bandit bodies so it would be more complete from the get go.  I guess it was a good thing I didn't spend the time and money to make a bunch of these.  I currently have only this one available though if anyone wants it.  

The offer remains on the table for $200 Paypal shipped anywhere in the US...

Do you have a Bandit body you could throw in with it?

I wish I did have more Bandit bodies, but unfortunately the one in the photos is the only one I have and I use on my test chassis.

Sorry :-\

While the idea is cool one of the problems I would see is that the abs body is much heavier than a stock lexan body so its going to be top heavy, that along with the extra speed is a sure way to destroy the body. I've tryed similar stuff over the years and the bodys just add to much weight.

This chassis actually works pretty well with the Bandit body surprisingly.  I don't find it to be any more top heavy than an original Bandit.  Sure, you would tear up bodies if you were skidding them across the pavement at top speed, but this is an offroad chassis and works well as such, even with the Bandit body.  But yes, I wouldn't recommend high speed turns on grippy pavement with any offroad vehicle ;D

Hey guys,

Last chance to get one of these as this is the last one I am going to sell due to the public responsiveness being much lower than anticipated...

Thanks,

As far as responsiveness goes I think you hurt your chances of selling by giving out to much information. If you would have called it an aftermarket chassis you may have done better but since you were very specific about what chassis it was im sure that everybody did the same exact thing I did which was look up it up on ebay and see that it could be purchased as a ready to run vehicle for around 120 bucks. Believe me I've come up with a few things that sold farly well and the key is to be cautious about what info you give out because in this day and age people are all about cutting out the middle man and buying direct so they can save some money.

Hello olds45512 ,

You may be right, but I wanted to make sure everyone knows exactly what they are getting here and that this is not just a standard Losi mini chassis.  This chassis requires about 3 hours worth of modifying to get it reconfigured to work with the pickup truck layout for the Bandit body.  You can't just by a regular Losi mini buggy and stick the Bandit body on it without making several modifications beforehand.

Thanks for the input.

Probably so.  I wish I had a bunch of Bandit bodies to go with the chassis, but I don't unfortunately :(
