    This RPV trail was super steep and very dangerous with much loose and sharp rocks.

    I'm digging the quality of the photography that accompanies the majority of posts on the Summit forum! I really liking the action shots, but I also like the composition of the still shots as well. Great pics & locations!!

    Rock Crawling fail - stripped servo gears

    So I went rock crawling with some scalers over the weekend and... stripped the left steering servo gears after my first rock (althought this was my first broken part after 7 weeks of ownership the gears stripped without any warning and the wheels were not under stress... not happy about Traxxas reliability and I've crawled these rocks before no problem)

    Bubba sitting on the rocks watching others play

    This XJ was trying to crawl Bubba's tires but he was having no part of it

    just upgrade the servo and be more confident with them (and avoid this from happening again).

    i agree, bubba looks sad sitting in time-out! hahaha

    snowslider, thanks

    craig.mitch316, yep Axials and X's they weight 4 ozs more than stock tire and wheel combo each. Overall performance they provide better grip, especially low and medium speed with bigger rooster tails. At high speed theres more stability due to harder compound, the canyon AT's tend to fold more.

    I just bought myself the Trenchers and am looking for a rim. I had my eye on those Axial beadlocks...seeing them on your truck has just sealed the deal for me. Looking very nice mate .

    Christmas came early for Bubba This round of mods I had three goals: new body, moar leds aka CHMSL, and wing. I don't do much steep crawling these days but more medium speed hooning and wanted a racer look. For those interested in mirror chrome I don't wish this endeavor on my worst enemy LOL Mirror chrome doesn't stick well to lexan, chips off easily and reveals every flaw. I backed it using mirror chrome backer and it helps a little. I also taped areas that get high wear to preserve the chrome. Overall this paint is expensive and not durable so I wanted to get as many good pics before it gets thrashed. Any scratches show up twice, once on the lexan and once on the reflection

    Minutiae: I used all traxxas lighting components ie wiring harness and tail light set (2 of the six leds fire downward from inside the body, I built a blacked out light box to block the light from straying thru the body. Same idea for the shroud behind the light bar. I don't see light from behind. Wing is from a 'competing maufacturer' it's thinner nylon but I perfer the shape over the erevo. Finally I refurb the exo cage by sanding down scratches and finishing with black shoe polish. Since replacement summit bodies do not come with door handle stickers I made my own using misc parts (tail gate too), everything is screwed down, no sticky tape, surprisingly the body with all fittings = lb, 2oz
