Re: Hex axle option

For future reference: B6 (gullwing) arms with a B4 bulkhead. (this could potentially solve the expense/rarity of B4 front end parts as the B6 parts are a bit more robust) - The bulkhead pivots will need to be drilled out with a 3.10mm bit. - A bit of material will need to be dremel'd off the forward...

Re: RC10 B7D Build

I've heard there are issues with the way the D block is mounted on the B7, because the D block in the B7 is mounted to the transmission vs. the chassis in the B6. So I guess that causes potential issues with the rear arms having more than normal slack in them. That's really the only reason why I hav...

Re: Hex axle option

B4 with B6 front end and Yokomo shocks. Ran it at the track with different tires. Really not bad. Full range of motion. Ran the middle holes on the arms and it was pretty much back to normal for this car. https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rctech.net-vbulletin/2000x2000/80-img_0289_a878fad14e4a9021439...

Re: So, what did you do RC today?

Took the B6 to the track to get it dialed in some more. Getting closer.... Ordered a set of used Electrons for those days the track is dry.

Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

So, inspired by MXACRES on YouTube I’m building a Bandit from the ground up because I figure if I bought the buggy whole, I’d wind up replacing everything eventually, so why not just build it from the ground up with good parts to begin with(?). Starting with the front end parts on order so far: Chas...

Re: Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

Really? I didn't know this. I always though the ae front axles weren't long enough to use with the traxxas steering blocks. If they work I'll have to get a set for mine because so far the front axles are the worst part of my build, lol. Yessir, check out this thread for details. I had to shim it ou...

Re: Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

Took the B6 body to the LHS to test fit on a Bandit, and it did not fit. I don't know how MXAcres was able to get one to fit on his. Looks like I'm getting a new body for it then, which is fine. Make rear cab great again. I was around when the transition to forward cab became all the rage with the P...

Re: Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

Side by side with a B4 +8. https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rctech.net-vbulletin/2000x2000/80-img_0342_f9bff1d176da0548db0ba10ff3f6deb244eb2c0e.jpeg The Bandito has about a 4mm longer wheelbase. Pretty much done. Just waiting on the driveshafts and transmission to be delivered. Bought the black gear...

Re: Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

The steel driveshafts ordered were advertised for the Bandit however they were too long, so I suspect it is for a Slash. Running the stock plastic driveshafts on it for now. Would like to get the Exotek drag CVDs in the future. It might be very difficult to find a CVD setup that fits the Bandit. I'...

Re: Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

I know you mentioned putting the CV's on the back burner for now, but I'm curious, the axles your ordered... was it ExoTek kit # 2060? Nope. Those are the ones that I'm eyeballing for the future. The ones I actually got are basically the same design as the stock telescopics, but steel. They're all ...

Re: Traxxas Bandit indoor clay race build

Added rear “Big Bore” Traxxas shocks with Associated green springs, and Yokomo YZ-2 front shocks with Associated white springs. Added a rear sway bar and a front wing. The sway bar mounts don’t look like they clear, but there’s like 1mm of clearance. https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rctech.net-vbull...
