    While our Mini Summit's ESC went back to Traxxas (again!!) I did some updating on ours. I must say the bearings on the turning stack are the bomb! The fit so tight, they take up a ton of slack and...

    Thanks for the close-up shots of your servo. We just switched our Mini Summit to the HiTech (exactly the same as yours). I also had to grind off the guard to allow more free movement to the stops....

    So in my effort to clarify, I typo and confuse myself.

    Transmitter 1, receiver 1. Link up. Transmitter 2, receiver 2, link up. Etc. I am guessing you want to do them in pairs so they know what to...

    Just to paraphrase, if I understand. Turn on a receiver. Turn on the car I want to run with that receiver. Turn on the second receiver. Then turn on the second receiver. Both should work...

    FWIW--We did go with the 55 spur gear. Every day a learning exprerience with figuring out how to fix things. It seems to be running well. We hardly notice the speed difference. Worth the extra torque...
  9. 2.4 GHz System with more than one remote and more than one car.

    I have read in my owner's manual (yes--it's true) that you can bind up to 20 cars to a single remote with the Traxxas system. My son and I would like to bind our remotes to eachother's cars, in case...

    ESC Replaced. Should I change pinion gear?

    Greetings!!

    We've had our issues, but my son loves his Mini Summit. We have replaced all of the axles (now with MERV's), all of the A-Arms (now with RPM) and a few other parts with stock. Crazy...

    We always TRY to support the LHS.

    For the most part they are very helpful. When we broke the axle for my son's Mini Summit, the "kid" didn't realize it was even broken. We thought it was just the...

    With the RPM rear arms, did you need to swap toe links as well? With the shorter wheelbase, I don't want to throw the alignment off.

    My son (8) has had to learn to slow down for the turns. It goes soooo fast on the straight, then to try to turn at that speed with no slip just doesn't work. He's doing quite well. Even in real cars,...

    Wow. Really good input so far. The 1/10 revo is waaaay too expensive for me. (Especially in VXL.) The Slash in 1/10 may be stable enough. I ruled the Mini Slash out since so many have said it's...
