    Yes, #9168 is for the summit axle driveshafts. Though they are not listed under the summit you can also use #8138 for the center driveshafts. I have both on my summit.

    I have the viper system. It it has all the torque and control of the dewalt. I think it might even be a tiny bit smoother at really slow speeds. It is also much more efficient and has way more speed...

    I would wire it to the BEC side of the ESC. Keep the BECs together, one side will discharge faster. After charging, swap the sides, so each battery alternates BEC duty.
