    ya the bandits wheels are a bit smaller then the b4 and losi but it handles good. the shocks arent that great so im thinking about getting some new ones. i think it could do pretty well against some other cars if you hopped it up a little

    I have two bike ramps I use for jumping, I jumped the bandit off them and it did pretty good, but maybe I will upgrade the shocks.Thanks.

    those arent piggybakes but i think they are designed for racing. you can probably fit t-maxx piggybacks on your tnx

    they will probably fit the same.it just depends on what you want.i would get the piggies for bashing over the powerstrocks. dont worry bout the typing.i dont mind.

    havent seen ne piggybacks for my tnx yet(same sus setup as t-maxx) if u find them plz pm me or email or whatever suits u.
    whats so good bout piggys? i heard alot bout them but just dont seem 2 get what they actually do(sounds pretty newbie but what the heck[:p])

    everyone i talk to says they would get the piggies if they had the money so i guess its just the issue of you having the money or not. those powerstrocks for the maxx are nice though.

    well, they look nice indeed but cost 2 much i guess...ill have 2 pay 24 bucks for sending...i think i might get traxxas big bore with some firm springs or something like that.

    thanx for the help
