    convert my 1/16 revo into a 1/16 summit?

    Obviously I know the body and body mounts and wheels/tires are different. But what other parts would I have to get to convert my 1/16 revo into a 1/16 summit?

    Anyone else trying this?

    There was another thread about this and the cost for all the parts would be about 3/4 what a new mini summit costs.

    I don't think so, all the parts needed are cheap,

    I will add to the list the rocker arms, rear a-arms (extended).

    pretty much rear a rams, and pushrods/toerods... bear in mind the summit has different axleshafts

    there is no way it would cost 3/4 of what a new summit costs to convert it.....

    Body, wheels, driveshafts, bumpers, body mount posts, rocker arms, and rear a-arms... And, I think the spur is bigger...

    Yep. Thats the one i was talking about. Doesnt make sense to convert one unless you pick up a complete roller.

    Im happy just running the wheels/tires from the summit. Besides gearing nothing else should have to be changed right?
