  • Dust is flying, rocks are tumbling and there have been reports of hidden booby-traps on this treacherous course. OH NO! A giant pothole concealed with leaves causes you to tumble - NEVER FEAR! The Baja Bandit with its awesome all-terrain suspension and sturdy roll cage can handle the flip and get you back on track to race to the finish line!
    —From the 2010 Outdoor Sportsman card
