    Light load charging from the cigarette lighter socket is fine. Myself, I keep the load off the socket around 10 amps, even though it's rated for 20. I've melted 2 cigarette lighter plugs and blew...

    Yep. You should be able to figure it out using the exploded views, and instructions that come with the parts. Have wheel bearing grease and diff oil handy.

    It's fairly easy to fix the diff. I have an extra set and just replace whatever breaks - mostly spider gears, and swap diffs when needed and rebuild the broken one while still having a running...

    And they are heavy. About 4lbs each. I'm still happy with them. It's hard on the stock motor/ESC, but works great with a BL system for all around bashing or crawling. The only gripe I have is the...

    I had wear at the center from a seized spindle. Resulted in enough slop (which is a tiny amount) to cause the gears to not mesh. My vote is for the replacement gear set.

    Check that you haven't lost any driveshaft pins and they didn't strip where the driveshafts connect to the diffs.

    With stock setup and 2 x 2s lipo or stock batts, you'll probably be fine as the fan in the motor cools both the motor and ESC. The ESC will overheat with lots of really slow driving as slow motor =...

    Yes, but it will go faster. :-). You just have to take a break every few minutes to let it cool down. Or you could just install the motor and leave everything else stock and be just fine with much...

    Probably not. The E-Revo was designed for speed and the Summit a Hybrid crawler/trail truck/basher. Then there's the cogging issue. But I suppose if there is enough demand, they might do it.

    A small brush should work just fine. If you've got access to compressed air, even better. Don't use WD40 unless you get it wet. I'd recommend wax lube, as it's self cleaning. Gotta apply some...

    Use silicon diff oil. There's a rubber seal between the pinion and diff cup. That may need replacement if the chipped gear teeth tore into it. Not likely, but possible.

    +1 on the diffs. I've got 4 in stock, and a few rebuild kits. Throttle control is key here, but those little spider gears break eventually.
