The HW bandit is not a ROAR legal motor and it will make the car harder to drive, more power. People at small tracks already complain legal 21.5 motors are too fast.

Adjusting the throttle EPA and expo are effective ways to deal with "too much power" from a 21.5.

Isn't too much power in a stripped down 2wd car what F1 racing is all about ??? Maybe we should start using the 55t crawler motors instead...lol...

It's a pan car. No need for a gear diff. Complete diff rebuild and breakin is 5 minutes tops.

Someone is coming out with an aftermarket pan car rear axle and gear diff, but don't hold your breath. Chances are it won't be too fast either.

Your Tc is almost as complex as a 1/8th scale buggy, not simple. Don't be a dick.


I guess it would have made more sense to call them "cookie sheet" cars. But with all the neon pink clothes and weird mustaches back then, "pan cars" sounded more manly.

Pan car: Usually a flat, single deck chassis with a simple solid axle/Ball diff driving the rear wheels. Suspension designs vary but again are much more simple then most other car designs.
