    So what is the preferred BL setup for the Summit?

    Im contemplating upgrading to Sensored BL, but dont know where i should go.
    How are the Xerun systems in the summit?
    What would be the better KV? 1800? 2250? or... ?

    I guess 'preferred' would be Tekin RX8/T8 combo. But 'price/value' would go to the HW system. 2250 would be my choice.

    BL system will be before too long, but i ordered the parts to do a single servo conversion tonight.
    STRC solo arm and a Savox 1231 servo. Should be plenty. lol

    Contemplating an LT conversion on my Summit.
    Only thing i cant wrap my head around is the wheels.

    What is everyone using for wheels/tires?
    I keep hearing about cutting some wheel down to fit on a SC rim, but im not too keen on that.
    How tall are you guys that have done this ending up as far as the tire height is concerned?

    I opted to go with short course tires 2.2 3.0 Trenchers no cutting.I couldn't bring myself to cut up a set of Tsl swampers.
    Haven't done the conversion yet so can't say how well that choice will be
    Pretty short so may have to go with something bigger.bit of a size difference lol

    Haha. No kidding. Looks like the Tsl Super swampers are a tick over 5.5" tall. The cut line is already basically on the tire so the trim shouldnt be too tough.

    I may have to break down and do that route myself.The trenchers may be just to small but I will try them at least.

    trenchers are smaller than the badlands (or these triggers which are a knock off of the badlands)

    TSL seem to be the go to for scale size at least. I can see how that extra 1/2" (vs the badlands) or so just makes em look that much better.

    Question to the overall width though, Slayer Pro or Original Slayer a-arms??

    Some of hte pics i see seem to show both. Would the added width of the Pro arms help or hinder?

    The height will help the carriers clear more.i got the pro arms.narrower would be better looks wise and clearance wise as well I would think.but I got the pro arms so we shall see.lol

    I've been reading on this too and the one thing I have not figured out.........what do you do about the drive shafts, since left side take shorter shafts. I realize you will use Slayer shafts but do you cut two of them down or do you just stretch the right side?

    I dont think that would be an issue, the original slayer and slayer pro used the same slide shafts.
    So AFAIK that slight difference should not be an issue at all.

    Its only 10mm or so shorter IIRC. (maybe not even that much).

    I'm sorry, I was referring more to the stock Summit shafts and the left side being shorter because of the Summit diffs. Was wondering if you had to modifiy the Slayer shafts on the left to fit the Summit diffs?

    Thats kind of what I was thinking too. I guess you could file a grove back on the end of the shaft for the dust boot?

    So you have to chage out the steering knuckles too? Is there more that just Arms, Rockers, Push Rods and Toe Links?

    We are on the same page here, i knew what you were asking. Slayer shafts should be just fine.

    But i do like Jamann's thought on this. Might have to pick up a set of shafts and do this. Wonder if they would still clear the slayer arms due to the added thickness.

    I would like to find out how much travel you giving up by going scale? Obviously the shorter arms and Slayer rockers will lessen the amount of travel and I would assume make the truck a little more rigid. But I guess that all goes along with the meaning of “scale”.

    One of the things that has to be done is it gets softened up a ton. Light shock oil and spring rate for sure. That will be a fun trial and error phase for me.

    Most definitely!! I would assume 20-30wt shock oil and probably green or white springs.

    That will be a GREAT bonding time for you and the Summit. As if you don’t already know her well enough by now you will really get to know her after taking the shocks off, breaking them down and putting them back together……….28 times. LOL!!!!

    I made the comment the other day, I feel like I’m wearing the screws out on this thing wrenching on it so much. I have become one with the Summit. LOL

    No no need to change knuckles I don't think.do needs 14 mm hexes depending on rim choice
    Springs as well

    I seem to recall not being able to run the Revo or Summit sized axles on the slayer setup because they rubbed.
    I tried it on my ERBEgt and it worked because there was no real flex and they just came straight out, but i dont think they worked on my EslayerPro.

    I'll try to find the one i cut down and see if they do.
