    Summit - > E-revo

    I have a Summit

    If i wanted to be able to do a quick conversion to make it more like an E-revo for
    indoor track racing.. what would i need to do. assuming my summit is stock
    (want to keep it waterproof)

    I would need

    different wheel and tires
    different body
    pinion change?
    soften the springs?

    I want to be able to swap it from Summit to Erevo and back again quick and easy

    Wheels and tires
    Body
    Body posts
    Different springs
    Different rockers
    Change gearing to ~18/68 ( the 775 is more for torque than speed though, wont tolerate being abused or pushed too hard )
    Leave your diffs unlocked and put the tranny into 2nd gear

    That should cover it really- refer to the revo manual for shock/ suspension tuning info & the exploded views for part #s.

    .+1 one I just went from ERBE to a Summit *L* a lot more involved there. but I would suggest some aluminum rockers if you have to buy a set they just look cool. You might want to look at getting the rear wing as well, it give the truck something to ride on at take off.. *L* or are you going to run summit bumpers on the E-Revo? The lights look cool on the E-revo.
    No you cant drive it
    my RC is owner operated only

    Just open up the suimmit and erevo exploded views and flick back and forth- you'll soon ID all the ( important ) parts that are different and need to be changed over. At a minimum though:

    wheels & tires
    body shell
    rear body posts
    bumpers
    springs
    rockers

    You can keep the locking diffs & associated linkages, just keep the diffs open basically ( or lock only the rear for offroading action ). Its not vital to completely change all the parts, just the fundamental items to make the summit look and handle like an erevo..

    I'd love to trade my Summit for a newer, clean E-Revo.
