    Yeah I would increase the travel bit and allow some “give” in the suspension. Heavier oil is better to slow the rebound stroke.

    I’m curious to hear how those tires work. I tried extended arms on a bandit before and it understeered a lot, perhaps the tires will make a difference.

    Good call. It’s easier to buy a bandit and get rustler parts if you ever want to convert, than buying a rustler and piece together the bandit parts.

    Don’t cheap out on storage. Ammo boxes are okay if you have room around it but it will get hot if it catches on fire. What I would suggest is this.

    I was surprised to see the plastic cup on the diff but figured they tested it. Thatís too bad if it becomes a weak spot. My 6780 units are very good with all metal construction.

    Do it. I had one bandit that is built to the T but uses the titan 12t and xl5 esc. I loved screwing around with it. The bandit is really light enough that the 12t motor is, you know, fine.
