George Thompson’s Drag-Prepped Traxxas Bandit

Aug 05, 2014 No Comments by

This strip-shredding Traxxas Bandit comes to us courtesy of Fort Pierce FL’s George Thompson. The popular budget buggy is thoroughly fortified for straight-line duty with a Castle Creations Mamba Max speed control and MaxAmps 3-cell LiPo spinning a 7700Kv motor that’s bolted into an RPM transmission caseTraxxas Anaconda rubber puts the power into the pavement, and George made his own wheelie bar (looks factory!) to help the Traxxas Funny Car front wheels stay on the ground. The shorty front shocks are off a Schumacher Nitro Fusion tourer, and mount to a cut-down shock tower. This is one Reader’s Ride we definitely want to see in action!

I've been involved in RC for over 25 years, and first joined Air Age Media in 1997. I served as Executive Editor until 2008, when I went to work on the manufacturing side of the RC biz. Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.
