Traxxas Bandit XL-5 1/10 RTR Buggy (Red)
Amazing little dune buggy for the price. The xl5 and brushed motor makes this thing way faster than I imagined a brushed motor buggy to be. I bought this as a project to build up a sand slinger dune buggy and knew it was gonna go under the knife for lots of changes and upgrades, but I have had a blast just driving it around stock for a couple days. The bandit is iconic in rc, everyone knows that shape.

Traxxas Bandit XL-5 1/10 RTR Buggy (Red)
after purchasing three other Traxxas products, I was dismayed at the level of cheapness! mostly the fasteners but the wheels with the pins directly in the wheels instead of the hubs sucks----pin was slipping out of the groove preventing removal of nut. not Amain fault. Just sad. now I need a full set of wheels with adapter blocks.

Amain service is good
