    Your diffs won't be able to take that kind of power. A stock summit tranny is stronger than a revo 3.3's transmission.

    I'm not one to say don't do this or that to your truck......but I don't see this ending well.One brushless motor is on the verge of overpowering this big heavy trucks driveline.In my opinion you will be disappointed when you are fixing it every few minutes,literally you will be breaking stuff before you get a pack half done.i have been wrong before,many times,but I just don't see it liking that much power for very long.
    My two cents

    Have you ever ran a summit with ONE brushless setup? I suggest you do that first because it's more than enough power for anyone .

    WOW!! My ERBE with the MMM 2200kv is a beast on 4S, 5S, and ocassional 6S, with the the first being the sweet spot of the setup. You could drop a single lower kv motor and see how you like it.

    WOW
    Thats quite a bit. But yes I agree that the summit tranny is stronger than the 3.3 tranny, BUT the 3.3 tranny has steel gears available (ROBINSON RACING) thus far the summit only has plastic gears.

    Two monster monster? I see the motors tearing the life out of that spur gear, they must be in perfect sync. There is a special wir harness called the " unslow harness" that is used with dual vxl set ups.

    12 s lipo? I dont you can even find a single 6s lipo that will fit in the summit battery box. We are talking serious chassis customization

    WEIGHT. Two monster esc, two brushless motors, two heavy 6s lipo,that thing would tip the scale around 15 lbs

    If you really like speed there is a guy doing an XO-1 set up ( from Traxxas 100mph car) that would be ALOT simpler than dual motors.

    But dont stop the creativity.

    Pictures are not supposed to be links or directly from your PC.
    First, the picture needs to be uploaded to a web host; like photobucket, flicker, or even a locked folder on facebook (like I do). Then after it is uploaded; you view the picture online, right click, and select "copy image location". At this point you come back to the forum and select the third icon from the right; the one that says "image" when you hover over it, and paste your image location into the box in the popup, then click "ok". Then the picture will be shown like this:

    2x brushless has been done with revos, but your finished monster will be less controllable, less nimble and more than likely, slower than a single brushless summit. Not to mention to strain youll be placing on each motor as they fight each other.

    Try a single mamba on 6s, with new tires and stock tranny first. Build from there if you desire.

    If you really really need a crazy setup, build an 8s Mamba xl2 and 1717 setup.

    Ya I wold have done that xl2 but that would have costed as much as 2 new xo1 and that's just the electronics
    Trust me I thought of that two but backed off of that set up
    Plus two off thoughts would just abliterate the tuck

    I've don a twin momba befor on my custom sand rail I put a rustler trany in the front and one in the back
    That's a also sand rail 0-60 in 2seconds and a top speed of 145mph no lie it was expansive.

    Two blown 454's in a Chevy Cruze can probably be done, but should it? I see this as the same sort of project. The resulting vehicle would not be fit for many purposes and I'm not sure it would still be a Summit due to all the changes that would be necessary...but you would have the satisfaction of saying, "I did it."

    "last edited for language" this actually made me chuckle and not because of the curse word that was removed.

    I hàve to admit 145 mph is pretty darn impressive. So you have to expect some doubters with this claim. We are not saying that we dont believe you it is simply that most people are still struggling to top 100 mph.

    Is there a difference in "kg" vs "wt"?
    The reason I ask is 100k (or 100,000wt) is stock for the Summit differentials.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Ya it is just like sintetic or regular oil for cars the diff at that amount of presher needs a fine smooth like oil and the 70,000kg is like puting a mixture of peanut butter and water mix so it's really stilcky so if you are having diff problems this woud solve it it acts like a limited slip diff
