    I've plastic dipped 3, 7 cell packs without a problem. I think the trick is in how you use it. I hung the packs from the ceiling on some string, with the string going between the two wires by the...

    I broke both of them. The first one was with 60 min on the Summit, the second was after another 30 min. I'm glad that they are happy to ship the replacement parts, learning how to disassemble the...

    Everything that I have read says that cycling LiPo's doesn't provide any performance gain. The only time you should discharge them on a charger is if you plan on storing them (store at 1/2 charge)...

    How are the SPC 2S 8000mah batteries working out? I'm running NiMh 4600 7 cells and love the speed but the run time is only 25 min. I thought I read that someone else was getting 50 min run times.

    I suggest leaving them all unlocked until you get stuck and can see one of the tires spinning while the other isn't. Then stop, engage all the diffs, then slowly accelerate. It should lock up and...

    Try taking the steps at an angle instead of head on. I was able to get it up 2 steps (straight on), but once I was greater than a 50 degree angle, it flipped over backwards.

    As an update, the grinding issue has been resolved. I neglected to put the drive shaft cover back on after testing the gear mesh after my 5678 replacement. It works like a champ now.

    I started with electric and love it. Run times are long enough to get the butterflies out, waterproof is possible, and you can charge a LiPo pack 300+ times. Also, when you get tired with the stock...

    You can always use plastic dip if it isn't cased. I've got 4 packs that are dipped, one of them LiPo. Try a hardware store by the spray paint.

    Heebz, I put my Summit through a similar run. Even after a lot of tire squishing and 5 days to dry out, I still get a lot of wobble at high speeds - like there is water stuck in the tires. Did you...

    It happenned after the 5678 replacement, but I didn't touch anything forward of the rear bulkhead. I think some water got in the tranny during the run that broke 5678. I took it for a spin at lunch...

    On mine it is LOUD, like bones grinding. I replaced 5678 in my rear diff, but other than that it is stock. I guess I'll drive it until it breaks and then call traxxas support....

    Crunch-shifting

    I noticed that if I shift from low to high gear while stopped, the Summit puts out this nasty crunch/grind sound even using extremely slow accelleration afterwords. It happens about 50% of the time,...

    I wonder if the extra voltage is making the issue more likely to occur. Has anyone running LiPo's broke the part? My 7 cell NiMh end up around 21V at a full charge for 2 packs, and I think the...

    It is going to take 2 days. Call them in the morning, make sure you talk to someone (don't email or leave a message), and ask them to throw in the 100K diff oil, I think it is part #5310.

    If your battery pack is really 4S, each pack by itself would be 14.8V (4 cells in a row at 3.7V a cell). The Summit ESC is looking for no more than 8.4V per Traxxas plug (or pair of wires) coming...

    It's a different ESC, too. The Mamba Monster ESC will take up to 6S LiPo, while the Mamba Max will only take 3S LiPo.

    I haven't torn it apart yet, but everyone else has seen the rear right tire is doesn't rotate when throttle is applied. Locking and unlocking the diffs does nothing.
