    Paddle Tires For Bandit?

    Do y'all know of any company that makes a paddle tire to fit the Bandit? I'm looking to run in sand.

    There are not several companies that make paddle tires, however the most populars are Traxxas and Pro-line, those companies offers the most performing paddle tires on the market.

    Also if ever you want a better front grip, this is a must have. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Proline-Moh....c100010.m2109

    The bandit runs best on 2.2 in tires however 2.8 will work in a pinch.

    I agree that a 2.2 setup is better for the bandit but IMO with paddle tires the handling is so weak that it don't really matter, however with a 2.2 setup the front handling will be a little better and because of the better masse distribution, the car control is more reactive and even with a little less weight transfer to the rear, the overall traction is not really affected. Also the front tires are not always in the air, so the driving experience is more enjoyable and be in control with the vehicle is an important factor.



    But with this kind of setup, the add of a wheelie bar is not an option.

    Does anyone know how to change/ modify the rear tires of a Bandit to accept restore off road tires? And do I need to change the gears?
