    Need clarification

    Searched everywhere and didn't find any helpful answers. Looking at push rods and rockers for my summit, wondering which are the best to get or keep them stock?

    If you're a crawler, I don't think you can go wrong with the stock LT rockers. The progressive rockers reduce your range of motion and articulation.

    I have changed to the red aluminum push rods, only because the stock ones got bent

    Basher?? well that's another story... Guess it depends on what you're planning on doing

    How do you usually run your Summit

    All around, not hard core crawler, more crawler and basher, read the p2s are good. What do you think?

    I believe if i remember right the LT aluminum rods are also p1 and p2 so as long is it doesnt say P3 they work for long travel. part number should be 5318x

    When you purchase P2 rockers in an original Traxxas set, they also come with spacers to install on the stock pushrods. The spacers allow you to use the stock ( or replacement red aluminum) pushrods with the P2 rockers.

    I mention "original Traxxas set" because some e-bay rocker sets being sold must be pulls or removals and do not come with the spacers. The spacer is actually a small ring that goes on each end of the pushrod once you remove and reinstall the rod end.

    no you dont need spacers. I upgraded the tie rods when i got a bigger steering servo, I believe there is only one size for the 1/10s.

    You do not need spacers to use the 5318x rods with the LT rockers. Now that I think about it, that's why the spacers come with the P2 rockers(not the rods).
