How did you go at Kotara?
Try Model sports at Kotara. He stocks a few parts for Traxxas or RC hobbies in Sydney. My mates Summit had the same issue & it was to do with the throttle trim not being centered whilst doing the...
A DHP evolution. I have not had a good run with F/E. I have found F/E to be unreliable & expensive (4 motors, 4 ESC's & 6 Lipo's in 18months). The lake that i run on gets choppy quickly & you...
Nice. Just curiouse. I am happy with my design. I use to tow a Baja 5B with mine.
Top job mate. What is your hitch design like on the Summit.
I am aboutt to order a gas boat to go on mine. 1400mm / 55" long with a 26cc motor in it. It won't be hee for awhile but i will need to...
Here is one that i did: http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread.php?522782-New-trailer-for-Summit&highlight=trailer.
Also search for djmaincheese as he has done a few as well.
RTV silicone works the best IMO. The black stuff that they use to hold windscreens in with. It offers flex for the tyres.
Thanks mate for your opinion. I don't think i will get them then. Might have to get the slingers or buy a boat.
They are massive. I run Jumbo Kongs which are hopless on anything except for sand. What do you think of the Micky Thompson Claw's? I have a set on my 6x6 crawler in the 1.9" though.
Looks great mate. How do the Mickey Thompsons go?
Yes they are. I drive mine in my pool often.
I have built a strong hitch. Post #8 in the following thread:
I have pulled a Baja 5B with it.
Thats great. Top pics.
Nice little mud hole mate. The Summits usually take more than that to kill them. I drive mine in my pool & don't have any issues. If you are doing a lot of water crossings, seal up the outside of the...
Here you go. My new project on the trailer. SCX10 Dingo slightly modified.
Sounds normal to me. You could try some silicone lube on the gear to soften the noise & a small adjustment on the motor as well.
The boat seized a motor. I could not get a direct replacement so i had to replace both of them. I took it for a run with the new motors & came home & flushed them out as i usually do with clean water...
That is a nice trailer mate. I am glad that i inspired someone. My trailer is going strong still. It's a pitty the boat is not. I am going to car my 6x6 rock crawler on it when i finish it.
One thing that i have got is a tube of RTV silicone for when the tyres get holes in them.
Nice. Make sure you post pics:)
I'll do that today.
I took my Summit for a swim today similar to this type of swim:
It was working fine but since the swim when i plug the...
Sand is no issue. Just clean it off when you are finished, similar to running in water or mud. I run Jumbo Kongs on the beach with no issues of temperature to the stock motor & my motor is 3yrs old.
The locking diffs mean that if you have a wheel on either axle in the air you don't loose drive to the one which is still on the ground. Open diffs transfer power to the path or wheel of least...
