Default Rere Ultima front hex conversion

Was pitting next to a friend and he had a bandit. The front arms were a dead ringer.


Bandit arms on a rere Ultima

The fit was really easy to do. Had to file about .5mm off the inside of the arms on the inner pivot and I drilled a hole in the shock tower to raise the camber link to try and match the c hub height. Everything else was bolt up. The tie rods need to be a bit longer maybe 52mm for the camber link and 58mm for the tie rod. Improved track width to around 9-3/4" with losi wheels. Also 12mm front hexes.

Using these arms on high grip carpet makes it a usable buggy. Before the bandit arms were put on the front track was too narrow and the back end was out driving the front on every turn. Just took a lunch break and went through a battery. I'm in love with this thing. Got it some TRX bling.

That looks great, can easily see the wider front stance. Nice work!
