Here is my XL1 bandit that I converted into truck. Im new to the sport so wasnt sure how to begin. I started with a stock bandit with trinity eurotech motor. First i added larger rpm bearings and bearing carriers. I decided i really liked the short course truck look. So then i added the following. Rustler/Stampede body mounts from rc boyz, Redcat Racing Vortex truck body and rpm front bumper. Had to ditch the stock bandit buggy wheels & tires they were bald anyway!), so I went with longer rustler front axles and 12mm hexes, rpm revolver front rustler rims at all four corners, and losi kingpin (silver compound) tires (4.87 per pair on ebay). I like the fact that i can rotate the tires for wear. Its fun to drive and although i was hoping the wheels would tuck into the fenders more, I dont seem to have any clearance issues with tires so far. I can also raise the body as needed to offer more clearance. Let me know what you all think!
