    Joining the Summit family

    At any one time we have a rotation of varrying degrees of Rally, Slash, and Revo rigs running around here. This afternoon we can add a Summit to the family! My wife suprised me with a new rig I had been eyeing but knowing I couldn't justify since we just bought a couple of Slashes for our backyard rally last weekend. Aparently she had this one on lay away with our lhs for some time.....she is so good to me

    Cool. There lot's of fun. I have had mine a little over a week and now I have to fix the diff's because of a stripped gear. Your gonna want to do this before you run it.

    I'm serious. I thought these guys on here were being a little uptight about the diffs and now I'm eating my words because I broke my summit.

    Dude. I am a cheap skate... ask anyone that knows me. I would rather sit on my money than spend it.

    Yes I agree with everyone else:

    1) shim the diffs they WILL strip. On the summit it seems to be the front one
    2) buy new knuckle the stock ones are crap an you will find that out quick with wheel slop
    3) get some aluminum shock bodies with threaded seal retainers. This will solve the leaky shock problem you WILL have.

    Cheers
