You may want to replace the tires depending on the terrain. Other than that, it's a fun basher. Fast too! I ran my Rustler VXL on 7 cells and it would do 50 foot wheelies. Oh yeah, get a wheelie bar.

If you are a beginner don't get a vxl bandit. It is way too fast and you will just end up braking it. But if you do end up getting one just get aluminum shocks or just aluminum shock caps. The stock ones pop off all the time.
