Hello! My name is Steven. how are you today? how can I assist you with RC cars today?
I'm good thank you. I like the Axial Wraith 'rock racer' type truck. But living at the beach it may be impractical. Need a buggy or truck that can climb sand dunes and sand bowls, also be able to run around the beach and forest trails.

The traxxas bandit would be a great choice for that. Very fast little car.
Yes, I had the Bandit in mind and just saw that brushless version. Would need paddle tires so I guess brushless would be best, rather than the Titan 540? Also looking at Redcat Blackout Pro.
Steven S.
Yes the brushless would be the better choice the 540 motor can go out easy.. I have not used Redcat so I'm not sure on that one.
OK, Bandit it is for a 2WD 'sand rail'. What about 4x4, what would be your suggestion? Needs to be open wheel body, the Slash body redirects sand into chassis.
Steven S.
Nice! But trying to stay closer to $300.
Steven S.
Ok I will keep look.
I have also been looking, for ease of maintenance a 2WD would best and with paddle tires, traction should not be an issue. Can I ask you about coupon codes for the Bandit, are any available?
Steven S.
No i'm sorry we do not have any codes at this time.
