This is the 1/10 scale Traxxas Bandit RTR Sports Buggy with a TQ 2.4GHZ Radio and iD Technology included. The Traxxas Bandit has completely redefined traditional buggy performance by the creation of a whole new class of Extreme Sports Buggy. The Bandit RTR offers the highest levels of action, speed, and fun that'll instantly make it one of your favorites for every kind of R/C driving excitement.
The Traxxas Bandit RTR is fully loaded with engineered performance features, like the advanced Revo-Spec Torque-Control slipper clutch. This patent-pending design delivers smooth, consistent traction control and allows precise adjustment. The durable, fiber-composite chassis offers an inline battery position for a low polar moment of inertia and was designed for exceptional rigidity. That's engineering speak that translates into nimble handling and lightening-fast response. The low-profile "lay-down" steering servo mounting system further enhances the Traxxas Bandit's already low CG design. The Bandit offers superior cornering and stability thanks to its live axle front and centered kingpin and suspension. Transmitting the power to the wheels is an efficient 3-gear variable-ratio transmission, topped off with smooth-running telescoping driveshafts and sealed ball bearings. In addition to those advanced features, the factory-installed planetary differential is Traxxas-Tough with hardened steel gears that never need adjusting! Perfect for long-lasting, all-day fun.

Absolute must own! Hours of fun!
I have had many rc items before, but this little "Bandit" is probably the most fun ive had with anything RC. I had the misfortune of breaking my Bulk Head piece on the first day from accidentally running head on into a curb but it was a breeze to replace, I would recommend purchasing the Front Bumper from RPM to protect this instead of the little "NUB" of a bumper that comes stock.

Cool little Car!
Overall it is a great little electric car. High quality is expected from Traxxas and I was pleased to give this to my son for Christmas he loves it. The only negative is that the charger it comes with is a car charger only which takes 45 mins or more to charge. So unless you get an inverter, or want to let you car running in the driveway for an hour. You will need to spend another 50 bucks for a decent charger.

How long does it take to ship
We try and get orders shipped as soon as we can, it looks like these are in stock so it should be able to ship the same or following working day depending on the time the order was placed.
Can it drive on grass or dirt?
Yes this can be ran on dirt and trimmed grass, since it is a buggy it is a bit lower to the ground so it might struggle or get stuck if the grass is too long but it does well in nicely trimmed grass.
Would it be better to buy the VXL Bandit just because of some of updates like the battery and charger?
The VXL would be a better choice over the XL-5 but the price point on this one is great as well so it really just depends on how much you want to spend. With the VXL version you get the TSM along with the brushless motor and ESC that is capable of much more power and is more efficient.
Does it come with every single thing except 4 AA batteries?
Yes, that is correct.
What is a good battery upgrade?
We would recommend upgrading to the TRA2970 charger and then the Traxxas 5800mAh 7.4-volt 2-cell 25C LiPo with iD Auto Battery Identification part number TRA2843X.
