Laying Rubber - Converting a Traxxas Bandit to an LCG Slash …

Greetings straight-liners and wanna-be straight-liners! Today we are going to resume talking about my Traxxas Bandit Drag Car project.

Monster Truck Madness – Rotten Apple X

Boy howdy, it’s been a fun few weeks bashing my new Traxxas X-Maxx 8S. I probably should back up first, as I haven’t even made a post here that I had gotten one.

Upgrading the Servo in a Traxxas TRX-4

The Traxxas TRX-4 is a great vehicle out of the box, but there is always room for improvement. The most effective upgrade that you can do over stock is upgrading the steering servo to a more burly unit. Here, I’ll show you how.
