    Those are SERIOUS tires. Hehe... I like that you used a 1700kv motor. Far more "crawler" than the 2250kv versions.

    I love it. I still run nimh batteries an i get atleast 40min run times. An it has plenty of torque. No i didnt water proof it. I stay out of the water for the most part, water causes to many problems.

    well i done been there an done that with kershaws motors. My advice is if u have the money i would just go straight to the tekin rx8 setup, you will be much happier.

    I run a Dewalt 14.4V drill motor in mine--MUCH stronger than the cheapo Titan 775, plus you can replace the brushes if things wear out.

    Kershaw now sells prepped dewalts
    As lots of people are running them.
    Just a tougher motor not really faster per say ,but much more gearing options
    And almost bombproof

    Got my Dewalt 14.4v from Robot Marketplace--only $30! Kershaw has it for $34.99. I prep my own stuff. But the prep is certainly worth the $4 if you are so inclined.

    I sometimes run the 14.4v Dewalt with 2 2s lipos on stock ESC. It really screams with this combo (even balloons the stock tires) --just monitor run times to avoid over discharging the batteries. The Summit is not supposed to be a speed demon, its a power mule, and the Dewalt is a beast.

    So you have the dewalt...2s lipos and what gearing? How fast have you been able to get it to go with your screaming combo?

    Thanks

    Looks awesome bro...and those are real monster tyres. Really nice set up. I am in 2 minds about using brushed or brushless, I am building a summit from my Erevo spares. I waterproofed my esc on my Erevo with plasti dip no issues.
    Rock n Rolla !
