    Different body

    Hey, after 3 years my bandits body has finally snapped but I want to buy a new one. The problem is a lot of my friends have bandits and i want something different. Do any other bodies fit the bandit ?.
    Thanks

    JConcepts makes a body for the Bandit. It is not very strong and you end up with even a little less room under the hood.

    Never had that body but i was under the impression that J concepts bodies are VERY tough and uses thick lexan. That body has to be more tough than the stock bandit body. My J-concepts bajr body for my slash is pretty durable.

    @hende101 you're options are very limited with bandit bodies. the stock body and the one thats linked above are the only 2 ive ever seen for the Bandit. I think you'll be just fine purchasing a clear one and painting it to your liking maybe?

    You can order JConcepts from many shops. There are even Dutch shops with not too bad prices.

    The Bandit Iluzion body isn't bad, but the stock body is stronger. With my 4x4 Pede it's a different story. My Raptor body is way stronger than the stock one.

    the problem with finding a different body is not only 1-2 to choose from. but if you want a scale looking body ,,,,,the only ones that I have found are 9 and 10 inches wide and the fenders will only cover 1/2 the tires.
    also the bodies only look ok for the bandit ,,,if you have rustler arms or any up grades that have longer arms the tires do not sit under the body.
    Monte Carlo I had to reinforce the fin and bottom of the front and rear bumpers with metal so when it flips over on 3s
    the road dosent eat a hole in the body. lol

    I chose the Monte Carlo over the camero or mustang bodies that were available.
