    New CVD, RPM And upgrades :) :)

    Okay well I finally got around to uploading some pics of the new goodies I have put on My kids ( ok mine as well Mini Summit.
    Traxxas CVD front and rear set
    RPM front and rear arms
    RPM front and rear knuckles
    2nd traxxas steering servo
    Traxxas GTR shocks with gold shaft with 50wt oil
    50k weight in diffs
    Traxxas aluminum front and rear rods
    Rocker arm bearings front and rear
    Summit led lights front and rear with roof top


    I have run this thing on both 2 & 3s batts. The cvd have not popped out at. Taken her on some pretty good jumps, and the kid has done some nice speed runs straight in to a wall........ 4 year old with a nice trigger finger.
    I put the 2 steering servos on, helps out allot, I really like it, GTR shocks with 50wt waiting on purple springs, RPM all around and the new knuckles. I put in the titanium balls front and rear, ( 10 bucks shipped off ebay, why not)
    While the new RPM rear arms are the stock and not the extended, I have not really seen that much difference in tipping or stability. before the summit I had a mini. No difference in it as well I could tell.

    So Far i am pretty happy with all of it. Still want to flip the tranny and try a diff set of tires.
    Wouldn't you like to know...

    ^ Yes stock and RPM arms are the same lenght. He said extended wheel base, not width. Stock summit arms sweep back 10mm farther in the rear then the RPM as your pic shows clear as day.

    To be exact the RPM arms shorten the wheel base not the over all length of the truck.

    How the extended or shorter wheel base affect the performance of the vehicle?

    With extented wheel base = less wheelie and take more place for turning

    Whitout extended arm = more wheelie and turn easy

    good to see the CVDs working, already broke 3 of the stock shafts. they seem to loose the pins in the joints quite easy.
    is there also an upgrade for the center shafts like there is for the big ones? one was eaten by little stones that were trapped beneath the skid/cover, the shafts was literally blended haha
