    Sand Bandit

    Hello all, I am going to build a Bandit for the dunes and beaches. I want to use Proline Sand Paws 2.2 but am a little confused on what wheels I need. I would like to use 12mm hex wheels.

    Thanks for looking.

    Or 1/8 paddles , they give you a bit more height which helps if the sand is soft

    Thanks for the reply Role.
    Are there any good matches for the fronts? I just ordered the 2.2 Sand Paws so locked in to those for now.

    I’m thinking proline Mohawks. Or you could just run the stock front wheels.

    Figured it out. RPM makes SC Revolvers! Except they have a proprietary spline drive. Really? Not sure I am digging that but maybe.

    Sorry I don’t know much about tires. Nice to find someone that drives a bandit/rustler in the dunes though.

    Well I haven't yet but I am gonna!

    I figured out my tires and wheels for now. Got 2.2 Sand Paws for the back and 2.2 buggy rear Dirt Hawg tires for the front. These are all going on Revolver 2.2 wide crawler wheels.

    At least that is what I have coming. I hope it all works out the way I plan, if so I will be ripping up some sand in a week or so! Will follow up with build list and hopefully some pictures soon.
