    Lightbulb Some technical questions about the summit...

    Hello:

    Maybe I am going to get a summit and I have some questions about it.

    1-What is the stiffest spring I can use for the summit? (I you have a chart, please, post it)

    2-What is the stock gearing?

    3-What is the lowest gearing i can use? (with more torque and Include aftermarket pinions )

    Thanks for reading

    Have you read the FAQ that is stickied at the top of the page?
    I believe all your questions are covered there in greater detail than I could do.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    2-What is the stock gearing? 14/68

    3-What is the lowest gearing i can use? (with more torque and Include aftermarket pinions) 8/68 - I believe they will mesh

    Summit shocks
    rear double yellow 4.9
    Front double orange 5.4

    Here is a chart of erevo springs. They will fit on the summit ( although they are a few mm shorter) just turn the shock collars. As you can see the stiffest is purple used primarily for racing

    Charts in the Summit manual list the smallest pinion as a 12 but like ksb said already, I've seen down to an 8.

    Also like ksb stated, Traxxas only makes two spring rates for the Summit...I would like to know why we can't have a notch or two stiffer. (Yeah I know for a stock summit orange is perfect but what about us guys who like to add and add and add weight to our summits due to all those little accessories we just HAVE to have )

    They do make a blue(5.9) and purple (6.4) for the LT rockers but they are considerably shorter. The pic is a silver (also designated at an LT spring) and dbl yellow.



    You could adjust the preload to match but I fear you would bottom out on the spring and lose wheel travel.

    Hope this all makes sense.

    noir- i appriciate it, just make sure it's black, I dont need that sissy white one! (I already get called a sissy for havin' an iPhone period)

    I'd get the razr but it wont fit in my pocket.

    It indeed is a 10 turn motor.
