    i was looking on traxxas website, never realized the put the same tires front and rear, wonder why they never did that with the rustler. so i looked at the exploded views for both and its the same part numbers for the rims front and rear

    funny, so after looking at some of he exploded views, theres like hardly any difference between the bandit and rustler, remove the front body mount front the shock tower, get the narrow front rims and tires, the shorter front axle, then on the rear change out the lower control arms, outer cv axles, and the upper ams, put on a body and you basically have a bandit, not sure if you would really need to change out the rear, just have a wider stance in the back. hmmmm

    I finally figured out what the slipper clutch is for, now i'm not going through tires like i was, also better control without the constant spinning. Seems i have a large learning curve, but i get there eventually!

    I did end up with talons and love them. All the grip in the world, and now I can pull wheelies. I did have to figure out the slipper clutch because of the added traction. But now I'm very Happy with my tire setup
