    Yeah, I upgraded from a stock emaxx to a stock summit and the summit is leaps and bounds ahead already. With some upgrades, the Summit would blow the EMaxx out of the water. Also, one of my biggest...

    There is a screw on the bottom of the transmission you need to adjust. Just search for 'shifting sticks'.

    Only other Traxxas tires will work. It is a proprietary design. You could probably use the stock EMaxx chevrons but besides that, you'd need aftermarket wheels as well.

    Yeah, the only issue comes when you try to use the stock Summit wheels on a regular 17mm hex.

    Well, you obviously picked the right truck. It is a lot of fun and I hope you have some money saved up, the upgrade bug hits almost everyone. :D

    With the suspension dropped down, the Summit would handle just like a Revo (with Revo tires, of course). In fact, since there is only one large motor mounted lower, it would probably have better...

    Actually, it should be able to do that just fine, maybe subtract 5 mph. But since everything else is the same, and with that amount of modification done to it, it should be just as capable.

    I'm not sure if you read your manual about how to prepare and maintain your Revo in wet conditions, but it says to cut holes in the outside of the tires so that as you drive, the water will be flung...

    You need to reprogram the ESC after you move the switch. Read your manual on how to do that. I use 70/30 to give me more throttle control.

    Actually, the stock Summit tires are very good for crawling and bashing. I find they absorb quite a bit of rough ground which makes for a very plush ride and saves other components. They aren't as...

    Yeah, it is longer and the stock wheels are offset so it is wider as well. The body is really nice (the exocage) since it doesn't get as scratched and cracked.

    Also, the locking diffs make it lightyears ahead of the Revo when it comes to crawling over things. It also has a two speed transmission that lets it switch to a crawling low gear or bashing high...

    ProMatch. Great batteries. A dual charger is great since it needs two packs.

    You really don't need to upgrade anything until you break something. The stock setup for a brushed Revo is very well balanced. Maybe get RPM arms if you break the stock ones.

    As for run times,...

    I love how long batteries last in the Summit. They seem to stay pretty steady and then just die when they are done.

    Unscrew the screws just a quarter to half a turn on the rockers. Also, you can put a little WD-40 there. I find it is usually the push rod ball ends that do it.

    As great of a truck the EMaxx was, the Revo is in every way superior. I have owned both and the Revo is just a better truck. If you absolutely have to have a Maxx, just buy the Maxx body and wheels...
