    Make Summit Bash and speedy? 2 motors??

    I've had my 1/10 scale Summit for about 6 months now and its just not as fun as my E-maxx, no offense. I like to bash mostly, but like speed too. I mainly don't like the soft suspension on the Summit. I put the stiffest springs on and compressed them with the ring, still not much of a basher. I'm running 7 cells in both Summit & E-maxx, but my E-maxx is faster.

    Anyway to make my Summit jump better, or stiffen the suspension?

    Anyway to make Summit faster without paying far too much for Lipos?
    Can you run two motors on a Summit? If possible How?

    Thanks. Appreciate any comments.

    I would suggest converting it to an e-revo, sounds like a much better fit for you. Really only a few parts to swap I believe. Also for the money I say lipos are a better deal. For summit and emaxx you need high end Nimh, for about the same price you can get good lipos that will dominate in comparison. Spc 8200 mah is about $60. Not bad Considering 2+ hour run time.
