So let’s get right to it. Très bien les gars, first we’re, going to show you everything around the box. This does come with a velenion 3500 kv brushless motor. This is a traxxas vxl, 3s esc. I think it’s around like a 100 amp or something like that, and then you got your classic traxxas. Tqi bluetooth, Radio, 2.4 gigahertz we’re gon na be seeing how this radio does when we’re driving it. You can see up here important it says battery and charger are not included, so you’re gon na have to supply those yourself. Vous pouvez voir ici. It says the bandit vxl, it is two wheel drive, but that does not mean this thing is not an rc beast on here. It actually shows the purple one, but as it says here you can see right there. It says we purchased the green one. This thing can still be bashed, but what i mainly want to do with it, and it might not happen right away. I want to try to get this thing eventually, Espérons, by the end of the year, i want to try to get it over a hundred miles. An hour this might not happen, but this is my plan, and this is what i really wish i could do to it so stay tuned for that and make sure to comment down below. If you want that to happen – and actually here, you can actually connect the radio to like an app and you can view all your speeds and a bunch of really cool stuff there.
So we might do that in the future. Now we’re gon na open it up. All right there we go, we got all the packaging off and now we’re going to cut the seals and we’re going to open the box up and now let’s roll out. The bandit also got a radio in here before we do an overview of the car. I want to unbox the radio here, so this is your radio it’s, the traxxas tqi radio feels pretty nice. I’Ve never actually used one of these before so it feels pretty. Nice got a nice foam grip there and then, of course you got your on off switch right. There requires four double a batteries: anyways yeah, pretty cool radio, does the job well, and then you get all your tools and parts and stuff so there’s. Some shock spacers there’s, a couple of tools like it looks like wrenches got a wheel wrench right there get a bunch of traxxas stickers which is really awesome, and then you can see your optional upgrade opinion gear right. There that’s what’s, going to get this beast to 70 plus miles an hour. Puis, of course right here you got your manual, which you always should read before, driving and now for what you’ve all been waiting for. The traxxas bandit for around a month out we’ve been hinting that we’re gon na be buying a traxxas, and all our viewers have been freaking out trying to figure out what car it is, and this is it.
We hope you guys are happy with what we picked, because we definitely are now before we go and drive this. I want to give you a quick overview of the internals all right, so this is the interior kind of bare here but that’s, because this vehicle is two wheel drive, so you don’t actually need all the electronics up there. Your steering servo is actually located under there. I think it’s like a five kilogram or something it has the traxxas trx connector right there right there we got our antenna, which is a little bit bent and right. Here we got our little battery tray holder, which is actually kind of a pretty ingenuitive and simple idea, and you also have your traxxas velenion esc right there. These are ultimate shocks by the way oil fillable. Then you can see all these wires right here that are running all the way back to the 3500 Kv. Velenion brushless motor here is where your pinion and spur are located for when you’re going to upgrade that pinion that it comes with which i will eventually do just not in this video. Our chassis is just a normal flat plastic chassis. This thing looks like it’ll, be pretty easy to work on because of how bare everything really is it’s, assez simple – and i kind of like that about this car, especially for when we’re going to be upgrading this to go even faster. I think this car looks absolutely epic.
What do you guys think leave a comment down below i’m almost ready to go outside and drive this beast, but before we do, you might have noticed in the rear that this thing does not actually come with a wheelie bar. So before we even go out and drive this rc i’m actually going to be installing a wheelie bar for it and you’ll actually be able to see what crazy wheelies this thing can do. So let’s install this Music all right guys. We got the wheelie bar all fitted on. It did not take that long and it was pretty easy to install but yeah. We have the batteries all charged up. Je suis, so excited to run this beast there’s. Nothing else to talk about so let’s go outside and drive the traxxas bandit, vxl Music. Merci. Music me hell Music, tous les gars droit, we’re outside now, with the traxxas bandit vxl and we’re gon na take it for a run, so let’s get everything set up all right. Donc, aujourd’hui, we’re running on our classic 5000 heure milliamp, 3s 35c lipo battery. It has a traxxas connector on the end and it actually nestles in really nice turn on our radio. This is the button right here for the sc turn it on got power, so we got everything ready, but before we run it, i do want to say we did install this wheelie bar it’s gon na be great for today, but we had to lower it a Little bit it had it too high that this plastic piece right here on the bumper was like scratching the bottom, so that didn’t really work well, so i had to lower it down one more point, but this actually has four adjustable points, so it works really.
Bien, all right so everything’s ready, so we can start running this Applause there’s a really cool location over there, so we’re going to go there in a second. But first i just want to see how fast this thing can go. We don’t have the speed here today because it is dead, but we’ll do that in another video wow. ainsi, by the way i don’t have the tsm all the way up and that’s a good thing to mention. This basically has a gyro. You can turn it all. The way up now, if you do this, you can see it’s turning by itself i’m, not doing this i’m. All the way up. Oui, so that’ll help straighten you out when you’re like drifting with the upgrade penny it can’t hit 70., but this one with like the stock one. It goes about 50., not at speed to the full potential, but that will happen soon. We’Ll install that soon in a different video can do a backflip on the tree. I don’t think so. Here’S an example of it in some grass see it does perform pretty good. Oh don’t want to batter the wheelie bar too much. I almost drove it in the water wow, oh right, through everything. This thing really performs best on road, so it might seem a little bit slow in grass that’s. Just because it’s two wheel drive, oh Applaudissements! Oh, did you see that definitely an airborne rc right there, that’s full let’s, do pegged.
Oh, this is full whoa. Did you see it losing control we’re gon na try to do it all the way down this strip? I have tsm all the way up. d'accord, here it comes Applause. The tsm has gone crazy i’m gon na stand more in the middle, so you can see how fast it’s going. That was crazy. That was crazy. ainsi, as you’ve probably noticed, the main thing about this beast is that it’s, fast and that’s. Why we’re gon na upgrade it soon? This might start in the next few months. It might start in a year we don’t know yet, but it will end up happening. I promise you so stay tuned for that and comment down below. If you want that to happen, here’s a little rev, so the tires don’t actually balloon. Much. Do you see how quick that was? I want to do it again, those brakes oh right into there. It actually has a pretty tight turning circle. Just steering is kind of slow all right guys. It looks like it’s dying now, but the traxxas bandit did great today. This is probably the most fun i had in rc for a long time, ainsi, truly a performer, really fun and in our next video we’ll be doing speed, runs we’ll, be putting in a speed meter see how fast it goes so stay tuned for that. If you want to see that coming soon, another one done driving we’ll go back home and i’m going to tell you my thoughts on how it performed we’re.
Back from that, epic bash with the bandit vxl and all i can say is what an epic car i’m sure we were hitting speeds of like 50 miles an hour there towards the end. It started to slow down a little bit, but mostly we were going really fast and that’s crazy that you can hit speed like that right out of the box for a great price. I haven’t even mentioned the price. Yet this thing at hobbytown was only 250. c'est. One of the cheapest prices for a 3s brushless vehicle, and once we fit that upgrade pinion in this thing, is going to go 70 plus for under 300.. In all the future videos we do make on this, we’ll be having updates on how it holds up. I’Ve heard sometimes traxxas vehicles have issues with oil leaking and other stuff like that, but so far this thing is holding up amazing. My only gripe is the servo is a bit slow but it’s, not to the point where it’s like unbearable i’ll definitely be upgrading in the future. But for now it’s perfect, so yeah there will be a link down below to the traxxas bandit. If you want to pick one up for yourself, it’s pretty much everywhere, it’s on traxxas.com it’s, on amen, hobbies, it’s on hobbytown.com, so i’ll probably leave a link for amen hobbies. So you can go check that out if you want but yeah. This is a great addition to the rc arsenal anyway, guys that’s about it.
For this video. We hope you enjoyed it. We hope you’re happy with the traxxas. We chose the bandit vxl i’m, so happy with it. This is an epic car, so make sure to like the video give it a thumbs up, make sure to subscribe. That little animation is showing you and maybe even give us some suggestions of what our next rc should be.
