Pathetic to Ultimate in 30 days...
With the Ultimate Rustler back on the track in Phase II form, in late 2001 I decided it was time to make the small leap over to the world of buggies. Traxxas' most recent buggy, the Bandit, was, after all, nothing but a Rustler with shorter a-arms, a different body and smaller wheels. Making an Ultimate Bandit based on its Rustler cousin should be a piece of cake, right? Well, how about a bit of a challenge -- make the Ultimate Bandit in 30 days or less! Now we're talking!
Take a detailed tour down memory lane to relive the dramatic progression of the project and see how it all came together!
