Default The BANDITO

Hello everyone, this is my brothers project.

I got this truck in an RC lot i got off ebay. It was sitting around and after some speculation, and the rain keeping me from driving any other cars, i decided to jump right in. First off the orignal electronics were very similar to the new bright crawlers. It used a radio system and battery from a hobby grade car, however the esc/reciever were on 1 board. The passenger front wheel was missing the drive cup so the front end did nothing as the drive shaft would just spin. here we go.

First things first was a speed controller. I didnt have any ESC's laying around so i decided to use a MSC. Next i needed a way to mount the servo/msc. I saw the broken stampede chassis and cut the part i neede out.

Thats it so far, the servo i think will be real easy as the stock one is almost exactly the same size. i am just contemplating where to put the battery. The wires on the MSC arent long enough to make it to where the stock stuff was, but i will look into it.

Next was the servo, a normal servo didnt fit but i trimmed the mounting holes/ears off the side. After that it fit like a love. After looking at the stock unit servo and taking a hobby grade one i have here that doesnt work, i bet i could splice the circut board from the hobby one and use the stock servo, but why go to all that trouble when you can just trim the  servo case?





Then i put it all back togeather and boom were off. The MSC sticks up so much it touches the body so the body is only secured with the 2 front screws. the lights work and its works surprisingly well. I think im going to have to extend the battery connector off the MSC a bit but other than that i cant wait to try it outside tomorrow.







(yes the gearbox guard is off, i was moving so fast i forgot to put it on )

yaleforscale we took out the motor and its 380 size, we are wondering if the 380 motor from team losi would fit.
