    Just tried this mod Hogg0005, loved it, the only thing i wish it had was 4 wheel steering. that said it negotiates the first half of crawl central nicely. Not tried the back half, since that is where the technical stuff is

    It travels through the 2nd half without much trouble. There are a few spots that are difficult on the driver, but otherwise this mod gives plenty of articulation and traction to get through the difficult parts. I completed a lap with it with only a few rollovers which were entirely my fault due to overly aggressive lines.

    4 wheel steering would certainly be cool though, there are spots on crawl central where it would make the obstacles far easier to maneuver over

    Ive made it all the way through with 0 damage with this mod. But it was pretty sketch sometimes. just needs some sliders

    It is definitely coming guys, I know everyone has been very patient, I've just been flat out lately or exhausted and unable to get motivated to finish it off.

    The axle has been made and tested, I just need to sort out the hydro rates so it stops snapping left and right.

    Will you be able to make the rear suspension work on the bandito frame?

    The Bandito frame 4 link is working, it still has a couple of stability issues, it makes the cab shake but its getting there.
    I'll look into it a little more and have a chat with Reactor_4aec if I cant get it sorted..
    I'd like to include to rest of the "stock" options for the Bandito as well as rear steering once I get the bugs sorted.

    This is on 13x9 STX rims

    One thing i have noticed last night, i tried the 10 lug option on hubs and while there are wheels, there is no tire options. nothing at all front or rear. Was this not intended/ Or was the 10 lug not meant to be part of the mod?

    Cheers for the heads up mate, the 10 lug hubs are a left over from the hopper mod and have been depreciated, I did mean to remove them but completely forgot.
    --- Post updated ---
    Progress since last update

    Rear steering jbeam is complete and working as intended on all wheelbases. (meshes are partially completed)
    Bandito axles are done and include the 4 link, 3 link, heavy duty, and standard axles.
    Bandito diesel fuel tank added
    Bandito roll cage instability fixed with new "Heavy Rollbar" its about 8kg heavier than the original
    Control arm lengths are now adjustable to allow for small wheelbase changes and pinion/caster angle correction
    I've spent a bit more time on the shocks and have been working on the higher lift leaf suspension that was requested (although it probably wont be included in the coming update due to a few issues and possible redesign)
    Diesel turbo sounds are fixed (may need to adjust volume\pitch in future release)
    Sway bars are now fitted by default on 4 link suspension.
    STX wheels in 13" 14" 15" 16" 17" 18" 19" 20" 26" variants (more brands to come)
    Tires to fit each of the new rims,
    probably some more that I've forgot about.

    I've also been experimenting with an adjustable body lift and I think I can get up to 4" without things looking too weird. (may include it soon if things keep going well)

    Thanks, didn't know if the 10 lug were intended or a legacy from the hopper. appreciate the update. look forward to the coming update to the mod. BTW the 514 is perfect for crawl central
