    Yes, measure how much mah is going back into the packs. Either your charger will tell you directly, or you can use math to figure out how much goes in. If it's not ~5000 (into a 6000mah pack), then...

    Blatant copy of Summit treads?

    Not entirely true... with a simple addition of a splitter, you can link the functions of the tranny and lockers onto the 3 position switch with the following setup(below), and free up the the thumb...

    Like a stock brushed rustler, if you roll a little bit backward, and then stomp on the throttle, you'll pull the front up for sure. But if you don't do that little "cheat", you won't be popping...

    If you were to climb a 50 degree slope, you could not say "I climbed a vertical cliff". 90 degrees is vertical. Is there some strange colloquial use of the term "vertical" that I'm just not aware...

  7. Tires, Wheels, and Removable Wheel Weights

    (Will do, noir522, once I finish posting all of the mods I've already got pics and writeups for.)

    Tires : Stock Canyon AT treads
    Wheels: Stock Geode wheels w/fake beadlocks
    Weights: Got some...
  8. Steering

    2x Solar D772 servos, rated for ~400in-lbs of torque @ 7.2V, but probably 250-300 is more like it. Packed them with grease to help with "waterproofing".

    They seem overrated to me, but definitely...
  9. Power Setup

    Motor: Stock 775 titan
    ESC: Stock EVX-2

    Batteries: 2x 6000mah China Hadrcase 2S lipos – these things last forever! Super tight squeeze into the battery trays. You couldn’t possibly get a taller...
  10. Radio / Receiver Mods

    Radio setup:
    Promptly sold the Tqi radio and got a TQ Link, as I prefer the feel and look of the old radios.

    Switches:

    Stock 3-position switch – Used a y-splitter to combine functions of...

    I know that mine are still going strong, and have proven time and again that they are indeed better than the stockers when crawling. I'd like to have quieter servos, but I wouldn't like to pay 5x the...

    Generally, people use the term "high-powered servo" in reference to the number of amps pulled by the servo, and not the voltage it runs at (those are called "high-voltage" servos - greater then 6.0V)...

    Extra weight in the front rims can be beneficial. I've got 3/4 lb in each front wheel. It definitely helps in upward climbs.

    Lowering the body and overall CG is also helpful - will give you more...

    I've yet to try another kind of tires, still with the stock Canyons, but I'm very pleased by the Canyon's overall grip and pliability. I only wish they were not quite so *thin*...

    The boxes do not fib... but they will require some minor modifications to acheive the top speed advertised on the box. e.g. you'll need 3S lipo, and taller gearing than they provide, at a minimum.

    Indeed, even though they are sensored motors, you'll have all the more fine control over the low-end speed if you choose a lower kv motor. You only need >1700kv if you want to do speed runs, and the...

    You can use first gear as long as you want. It will not be bad for your Summit in any way. You may want to occasionally switch it into high gear to make sure the servo is working and the linkage...

    I've got two 6000mah packs. I'm going to use B@3's idea(switch packs halfway through) until my new BEC comes in. Once it does, I'll hook it up to both batts, so it can provide an equal drain for the...

    I've got ~11oz in each wheel. It's heavy! Seems to really improve some aspects of crawling... Just put some strips inside the wheels (use adhesive or something/velcro/etc.)

    Main reason: The drain on the BEC battery is considerably higher (especially as I now have two high-torque servos and a multitude of lights...). I've been running the stock nimh. After a run, the BEC...
