    Building a summit

    I'm building a new summit from ground up. Are the rpm a arms from the e revo the same as the one for the summit? Are the Toe links and push rods the same? And lastly can i use the front and rear body towers from the e revo? I just have a lot of spare parts from my e revo. Just want to put it in use
    Thanks!

    stock summit arms has 10mm longer wheelbase, but RPM from erevo will fit good, toe links and pushrods are the same, just the rear rockers are longer, body towers are the same, but you need longer body post, springs are diff also, front bumper is different it comes with the headlights, and extra support at front.

    The rear arms have the extra 10mm, the fronts are the same.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I'm building it for mild rock crawling. Im planning to use the e revo driveshafts for the front. Should I get the extended arms on the rear for Rock crawling?

    The length could hinder or help you, depending on the course.

    My arms rub my shafts to on my MERV... but only at full droop.
