The Traxxas Bandit is the perfect buggy to get you started in the great hobby of RC (Radio Control).
The Titan 12T 550 motor has an inbuilt cooling fan reducing running temperatures and allowing faster speeds and longer run times without having to worry about overheating.
Precise control is easy with the included 2.4 GHz TQ radio system.
Hobbies Direct recommends using Traxxas’ Patented Training mode as it limits the power output of the model to 50% which makes practising much easier and safer and is also a great idea when giving your friends a try.
Hobbies Direct stocks 100% of the spare parts for the Traxxas 1/10 Bandit meaning more fun-time and less down-time.
Traxxas' patented Training Mode is a fantastic way to learn how to drive an RC car, once set to Training Mode the power output of the car gets reduced to 50%.
