    Rock crawler conversion

    Can I make a E-revo a decent rock crawler or should I buy a summit?

    Hi if you got a three channel transmitter you can add to twin gear transmission, gives you a super low crawler gear, kit comes with servo to change to low gear

    Not sure about diff locks etched though.

    You could run some super thick diff fluid or putty in them to "lock" the diffs. Summit is pretty much a revo with long travel suspension and bigger axles, and locking diffs. You would need a sensored brushless motor to crawl as well.

    you need to buy summit diffs, bulkheads (you can use your e-revo driveshafts but i prefer using the summit driveshafts) and 2 micro servo, sevo mounts, diffs locking linkage. also if you want the 2 speed you have to buy the 2 speed conversion kit. so to put the hassle away, buy the summit and leave you e-revo the way it is.
