    I am wondering the same thing but I also wanted to know if there's a specific list to convert to the Summit brushed. As far as I can tell, the motor mount, gear cover and receiver box are different. Will the VXLs receiver box work with the bigger motor in the brushed version? If it doesn't then wouldn't you need a new chassis as well so the receiver box fits on the chassis properly?

    I really would like to keep the truck waterproof, hence all the questions about the receiver box.

    i have a brushless and a brush. but id rather use the 550 brushed for more of a climbing truck. by the way i just got off the phone with hobby town and they talked to traxxas and said the parts are going to be ready within 10 days. all we have to do is wait. ill only buy them if together the parts are less than the tenbol mount. also with traxxas coming out with theirs, i wonder if tenbol is going to lower the price.

    Yeah it usually takes a month after they come out. Every traxxas vehicle seems to be like this after released. I wanted the updated bulkheads for my mini erevo and i had to wait a month after the next batch was released.

    I want to convert to brushed to run a 1/10 scale brushless system, and the original Traxxas parts are cleaner looking than the Tenbol big block mount. Also the Tenbol doesn't have the gear cover which I really want.

    The receiver box is different, I'm sure of that... When I tried a brushed motor with the Tenbol mount, the stock receiver box was to big... Also , you can see on the pictures that it's different...

    Yeah I'm assuming the chassis is slightly different at the receiver area. I guess I'll need another chassis as well.

    I can confirm also that the receiver box is slightly diffferent in size......that might ruin my plans...i was planning on buying a 2.4ghz traxxas receiver and binding it to my transmitter for my rally...I wonder if that would fit in that different receiver box?

    The chassis is the same, but the receiver box cover is different.

    efarral the Traxxas 2.4ghz receiver is the same length and width, and a little shorter in height than the stock 27mhz AM receiver the brushed Summit comes with, so yes it'll fit.

    Sweet, I think a nice 55t motor could be fun in one of these
