    Yes the weight and size of the mudslingers put a lot of strain on the hubs and bearings. The mudslingers size accentuates the minor tolerance deviations that are very minor individually but when...

    I can personally say that the 10 amp (max) CC BEC will power two Sav÷x SA1230SG's 500oz/in servos. They have a stall amp load of 5 amps each. However unless you run solid steering without the servo...

    A slipper clutch would only be needed if you have items in your drivetrain that cannot fully support the torque from the motor. I upgraded my nephew's PowerWheels from 540's (stock) to Dewalt's. Much...

    Welcome aboard! Lipos are a must have. I personally would buy some axle tubes (long/short) just in case, so you're not down and waiting. There are too many things you can upgrade or modify to list....

    IIRC 18v is 1125kv, 14.4v is 1325kv, and 12v is 1525kv. I have tried them all and finally went bl. 18v on 6s is only 4-5k faster rpms than a 4s 14.4. Yes there is more torque to gear higher but it's...

    I think the overall size of the summit is mainly due to the fact of the tires and a-arms. But that's the point of a monster truck, to exaggerate the suspension and tires. The fact that you can almost...

    4s BL is plenty in a Summit. I have an rx8 with a 4038 2000kV T8 on 4s. Geared 20/68 on Big Joes it does 39 mph on GPS. 40 seems like nothing in most bashers but in a Summit it is plenty fast...
