    The 700ho, but it will not be a upgrade over the 775. Might even lose a little due to the 700ho having less torque. There are only two upgrades over the 775 which are a Dewalt 12v or 2 700ho's. Dewalt is a torque monster and can handle 5s lipo power. The dual 700ho's benefit from the combined power of both motors, but at the expense of a much higher price.

    The best upgrade is brushless, but you would lose the waterproofness.

    And from what I have heard the dual 700's will result in shorter run times because those two motors eat up the juice quicker.

    hmmm,i dont think the 775 is more power then single kershaw 700 ho. the titianis 10 turn..the 700ho is9 turn
    Want a small boost in power for your Summit without draining your batteries and bank account. Try this 9 turn 700-series motor. The lower wind count and 15 degrees advanced timing make for a notable increase in speed and power
    i think if you need a replacement motor this is a good one fo the $$. when mine gose n its time for new one i will be getting the 700ho or the Summit Revolver 700-HO Motor Conversion Kit it says to run top shelf nimah batts or 15c lipo.buti already have top line nimah so i will just use them..just remember u can change the pinion gear to get more tourque lower number gear = torque higher number =speed

    The DeWalt 12v is a torque monster. I have a 21T on my DeWalt and it can pull a house down on 4S.

    Traxximus Prime is correct Dewalt is a torque monster, and yes I do believe his claim on the house pulling. Why else do you think he was living in a hotel the last few days? -jk
