    Summit Axles

    What's up guys I'm the new owner of an Erbe snap on edition! I haven't received it in the mail yet but I'm anxiously awaiting it, and here is my question, and please.. I tried searching and couldn't get a definate awnser. I want to know what I need to do to get the stronger summit axles to work in the Erbe, as I'm going to be running on 2 venom 3s batteries all the time, I want axles I don't have to replace every ten minutes! The summit axles will be my first mod for sure, next to follow will be RPM front a arms and RPM tru trac kit out back with some of prolines pre-mounted badlands on desperado wheels

    The Summit axles should fit will out any need for mods, from what I've heard. They also are very strong and are very hard to break, depending on what motor/esc/lipos your running. If I'm wrong, someone fell free to chime in and correct me.

    if you want to go with summit axles get them all long ones, the short ones are OK if you dont mind the blue dust cover stretch out to its limit.

    I don't plan on doing backflips truthfully I'm sure I'm gonna end up sliding on my roof a lot because up until now the fastest thing I owned was a slash 4x4 on 3s

    if you were planning on wiring them in series then the stock axels will be just fine, if you are running parallel which will be crazy, you will want stronger everything but before strengthening axels think about how easy they are to replace as opposed to getting stronger axels and putting stress on another part that is much harder to fix, i have made this mistake before.

    not quite...^

    Batts in series double the voltage:
    2x 2s 20c 5000mah = 4s 20c 5000mah

    Batts in parallel double the mah capacity:
    2x 2s 20c 5000mah = 2s 20c 10,000mah.

    It will be cheaper to get a full set off eBay and swop the 2 shorter ones out for the longer...some people use the shorter ones on the back until they break and need replacing.

    I use summit axle...

    If you can't find complete sets off eBay then use the list in the above post.
    Rock n Rolla !
