    As far as I can tell it isn't even raised. The 90t rockers are P2, which is what comes stock on an E-Revo. And the RPM True Track is not compatible with the LT rockers anyway so he couldn't raise it if he wanted to.

    If the truetracks arent compatible with the LT rockers I might not go with them then. I want to make this as Summit as I can but keep the E-Revo look I love the look of the E-Revo but I want the functionality of the Summit. Give me some suggestions of what you think would be better I am going to add all this stuff to a list and once I get the funds start buying and building one piece at a time.

    I just got to doing some looking at all the parts I am going to need to get and I am in for a good challenge to find the right stuff and I am ready for the challenge. My goal right now is to get a list together and I want everyone in the forum here to donate their 2 cents because I am going to build this custom Summit/Revo for everyone in here as sort of a thank you for all the help you guys have given to everyone. This build everyone can say they had a hand in the process of building it. Dream big guys this will be on my dime...........

    You're list so far is pretty robust, as usual.
    and the things you've already done are pretty awesome.
    The only thing i thought of was the piggyback shock setup.

    My question is what style of "Sick" are you looking to accomplish.

    Fastest, tightest handling monster?
    Show Monster?
    Crawler extradonaire Monster?

    Where we thinkin Kscherer?

    I was thinking of the piggybacks too I am just not sure of which ones are going to be the best to get..... integy, 3 racing, rd logics?????

    As far as what I want to accomplish I would have to say the baddest Summit/Revo to ever be built and ever going to be built, fastest, best handling, and best crawling Summit/Revo ever!!! Hows that sound??

    Sounds Extravagant! Let's see. I know that most have negative comments about integy. Just because of this, i'm hardheaded and ordered body mounts, bumper mounts and servo gaurds from integy. I'll be my own judge... Plus, it's all aluminum.. I haven't decided on shocks either but i'd say all of them look pretty similar.(can't find 3racing piggybacks) I'm kinda going you're route too but without the brushless. i guess you could say i'm trying to make the sickest brushed summit.

    Does that chassis you mention accomodate all the summit servo's?

    I'm also thinkin metal gear servo's for steering.

    Did you have all the undercarriage alluminum Skid plating on there too? can't remember.

    Saw some Titanium Rims that were crazy priced. I wonder how those work and weigh.

    Last thought. Does anyone know if the revo tranny case has the hole for the high-low pin? if so, i'm thinkin this would be pretty hot too.

    Yeah the scheme I am thinking is the titanium and black look with one more color in there but not sure yet.

    If the chassis doesnt accomidate there can always be mods madeto the chassis to make them fit. I like the metal gear servo idea with a black or titanium case, definately metal servo guards. I want to have like half titanium half black plastic so any metal parts are going to be titanium. I am going to stay with the summit tranny for that awesome low gear.

    I should have clarified more. A Aluminum Tranny case that would still fit the high-low pin would be pretty tight.

    My only concern is the stainless steel screw kit - what manufacturer are you going with? I *had* an RC Screwz kit on my E Revo and hated it - installing some of the screws the hex heads stripped.

    I recommend Tony's Screws - have them on my E Revo and Summit. If you want to go nuts, get some titanium screws from Lunsford...

    I like that, it will go well with the scheme too since I'm going with titanium parts too.

    I was reading integy posts on here somewhere and plenty of people stated that the MIP Center CVD's kept breaking. Wouldn't stop me but figured i'd tell you what i saw for your own consideration.

    I love the List and can't wait to see how it all comes out and the weight difference after all the titanium goodies.

    Yeah I saw the same things are far as the MIP CVD's but I think it was just a bad batch and some real hard driving, I dont drive near hard enough to worry about snapping those shafts. I have to put a list together of all the screws needed so I can order all the screws I will need and I was also thinking of using that washer kit that LongBill76 used on his e-revo build.

    Washer kit? i don't remember that part of his post. You brought that guy's build to my attention. Love the Longbill76 build. I'll have to check it out.

    BTW. I looked at that chassis and it's uber nice. (Even comes with center driveshafts!) Still really concerned about where those 3 micro servos are gonna go. If you were staying with the stock mounting positions, they'll be floating in mid air. Time to pull out a CNC machine and a chunk of titanium or aluminum plate. You'd almost need a whole upper plate. Where does the Speed control go?

    I might wait on Dan at Kershaw to finish his purpose built summit chassis he's developing on his website. His website say's late april launch. That's any day now!!!

    The washer kit was I think team associated washers

    I was thinking or making needed plates and stuff out of CF board custom sizing and cutting to make them fit.

    bro that list is intense. Everything looks to be in order though. Are you building another summit from the ground up. Looks like you could and just leave your other one the way it is.

    You're so gonna sound like one of those hot rod nuts like me.. (I got a 67 Camaro i've been building since i was 19. 33 now)Somebody is gonna ask, so whats in it? And then the 30 minute breakdown of goodies will ensue. Biting my nails waiting to see the finished product!!

    You're so gonna sound like one of those hot rod nuts like me.. (I got a 67 Camaro i've been building since i was 19. 33 now)Somebody is gonna ask, so whats in it? And then the 30 minute breakdown of goodies will ensue. Biting my nails waiting to see the finished product!!

    Yeah its going to be one of those year long projects that I am so anxious to build that its killing me already to build it. I am going to love having fun fabricating parts for it and making everything fall together in place.....

    Also........I will definately be giving the 30min breakdown of whats in it explaining ever part to the last detail......

    i know.
    i found it through the link from another thread.
    wonder why someone would post a long list of upgrades and then not even bother to show at least one picture
