Just got summit vxl RTMod and their new blue peak charger and another nimh pack to start. as well as another servo and linkage to connect it. I got about a good fifty charges ran through it now, the axle pin are coming, both stock servos shorted out,shocks are blown, as well as a rock got stuck between the motor and tranny gearz! not to mention the horrific amount of slope in my suspension and steering,lol. Time to mod List includes:Traxxas cvds, gtr shocks,tan/black springs, aluminum rods and balls, rpm arms, metal carriers( First question: where to buy the gmp of hr ones i here so much about??), hitec 5087 servo(should i get two at same time?), losa arm, bearings in bellcrank or a metal one(open to suggestions here??), thicker shock and diff fluid (suggested weight for all around/off-road basher??) as well as shimming diff(where to get those shims??), oh and a heat sink and headlight kit if they ever come out. also wanted to get the 55t spur gear since i run in puddles grass hill climbs.(If i go lipo do i still need to change gearing??)Also would like to use delron revo rockers, but would that lower my ground clearance even with adjustable rods?? I think that about does it for mods that should be stock on there stock for most part,lol.
Now for my battery questions. Since my summit will now be able too handle lipo after these mods i want to get two traxxas lipo 2200mah packs and put them in parallel. First, can i do that?? Or is that too much for stock esc and motor?? Also i run in very met conditions here in the northeast, so can i safely 'plastic dip' lipo packs worry free?? another thing i see in pics is that connection for cell balancer, doesn't that have to be sealed off so it dont short out or get debris in it? my plan was to get trx2917 lipo dual charger adapter, but do i charge at same rate?? so big question is will it cut down my charge times??
Sorry for the cluster of questions and very bad grammar, I'm computer illiterate and have very little time to get on web, so i wanted to bang this out in one shot. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
