Default New Traxxas Bandit Update

The New Traxxas Bandit™ Extreme Sports Buggy!
The Traxxas Bandit is the ultimate Extreme Sports Buggy™ made for the driver who wants to experience max speed and all-out buggy fun. Loaded with a powerful Titan® 12-Turn modified motor and fully proportional XL-5 Electronic Speed Control, Bandit rips massive rooster tails, soars over giant jumps, and screams at speeds over 35mph.* Bandit lays down the power for pure performance and excitement at every turn. All new Tracer™ chrome wheels mount industry-standard 2.2" Alias racing tires for aggressive bite and surefooted handling. The all-new Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ slipper provides sophisticated and reliable traction control. Bandit is built Traxxas Tough™ and is Ready-To-Race® to keep you off the workbench and deep in the fun zone. Plus, it’s upgradeable with a full line of Traxxas factory parts and accessories for custom performance and personalization.

• In a class by itself with 35+mph* top speeds
• Powerful Titan® 12T 550 modified motor
• XL-5 Electronic Speed Control features three programmable drive profiles for Sport, Race, or Training Mode
• Exclusive Training Mode™ limits full-throttle power to 50% allowing young or new drivers to develop their control skills (Patent-pending)
• Low CG and low rotational mass provide lightning-quick acceleration and unmatched agility
• Industry standard Alias™ 2.2" rear tires are pre-glued on mirror-chrome Tracer™ wheels.
• XL-5 ESC & receiver are securely fastened to the chassis eliminating troublesome servo tape
• Unrivaled parts availability and unparalleled Traxxas support
What’s New on the Bandit
• Titan® 12-Turn 550 modified motor for 35+mph
• XL-5 high-frequency forward/reverse/brake Electronic Speed Control with 12-turn (550) motor limit and EZ-Set™ one-button setup
• New gray parts and hot new graphics provide a fresh new look
• High-torque steering servo
• Integrated motor fan works with the channels in the motor plate to pull cooling air through the motor
• Revo®-Spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch (patent pending)
• Industry standard 2.2" Alias™ rear and Alias front ribbed tires mounted on mirror-chrome Tracer™ wheels
• Powder-coated white springs and grey shock bodies
• Includes optional 31-tooth pinion gear
• New easy on/off wing mounting system

Would look pretty sweet watching one of these fly past at your local track past all the b4's & xxx's

Cheers

Chassis does look the same just different color. Lets not forget this is a basher, not a hardcore racer

Old Chassis design below, new chassis a couple post above

updated electrics, and cool new grey plastic. not much, but an impovement. i hate the wheels on the (new) bandit. i think theyre ugly.

but, i guess to younger folks, it will apear more cool to them. traxxas is just improving the gateway to our wonderful, yet hidden and misunderstood hobby.

Yes, nice to have something different. Stadium trucks have lots of options but buggys just have dish
