    Just the 2.5 maxx- all the revos have the new style knuckles & drive shafts. Only slight different between a 2.5 and 3.3 revo driveline is the size of one of the bearings on the knuckle, ( newer...

    Depends, the use of an external BEC to power the rx & servo or just servo may be required depending on the voltage fo the servo, and how power hungry it is- on the summit I'd say you do need one due...

    Can you not just run 2s lipos and some LVAs? Decent nimhs cost as much or more than decent lipos.

    You are right about the gearing- you want to be running more like 22-24/68 with the smaller stock tires, 17/68 is designed for brushed power or the BL setup when only running nimh/nicads; lipos can...

    I think it would be more use for the larger controllers castle sell ( aircraft/boat & MMXL ) given the size of it- for the MMM you could add a couple ~2000uf 35v low-esr caps ( few bucks on ebay or...

    Bearing in mind all aluminium skids will bend if you impact something hard enough ( even my Ti skids have been 'tweaked' a few times ), I'd probably go for FLM as they are very chunky, though you can...

    If running 2 packs in parallel, you still need a decent C rating- 25c from traxxas, 30-40c from other brands as a general rule; wouldn't like to speculate on the ability to wheelie with a Summit on...

    That gearing ( 17/68 ) is fine with the nimhs, but when you use the 2x2s lipos you'll want to bump it up quite a bit, say 20-22/68 or there abouts to take full advantage of the power and speed on...

    Maybe, but then you will also need to get new steel pinions as the steel spur will eat the softer aluminium pinions very rapidly- just be sure you go with the RR slipper/spur options for the old 3906...

    I'd probably go for the 2200kv myself- those 1:8 wheels are very similar in size to typical MT wheels so I don't see much need for the higher kv motor to make up for a loss in speed due to smaller...

    No. Metal a-arms invariably end up getting bent pretty quickly as they are the most exposed parts on the truck- you only have to clip a curb or hidden rock to bend the arms back on one side- that's...

    66 = teeth on the spur, 18 = teeth on the pinons > 66/18; that's how the gearing / gear ratios are expressed on r/c models ( ignoring internally tranny ratios and diff ratios ).
