Traxxas Bandit Drag-Prepped by George Thompson

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!
