    Summit for an 1/10 E-Revo Trade Feeler ?s

    I purchased a 2.4Ghz 1/10 Summit for my son and it's "too Slow", is it reasonable to ask for an E-Revo in trade in the Market Place or will I have to put some more money in on it? ANyone interested?

    From what I know it will be fine if your in speed mode and not crawling. It's when you try to crawl with it that things go wrong. If thats something your worried about the E-Revo trans and Diffs fit in the summit. They are the same exact chassis so I don't see it being worth it try and trad for an e-revo.

    you can also by the single speed from e-revo and diffs and you also need to buy the e-revo bulkheads, summit bulks are different.

    And buy 1 set of Summit Long Half Shafts. On the Summit they use shorts on the locking diff side. I want to say left in the front, and right in the back, but Im not 100% sure. And remember Canyon AT Tires balloon really badly, so think about getting different tires for a BL set up. Look on fleabay for parts, I think I bought a Erevo Tranny for $35 shipped.

    Look at the Tekin RX8 with a 2000 kv motor, then you can still do some good crawling, the trans will be fine so long as you don't shift under power, & take it a little easy on the diff when the are locked in..........

    All you need is to install a $3.00 gear and remove the extra parts from the summit Trans and you have an erevo Trans.

    Just noticed you said gear and not Trans.
    That must be a strong gear since none of my Lhs has ever stocked that part. I had to order mine online. It should be here today.
    I'm building my tekin erevo and using the old Trans from my summit for it.

    Forgot to mention you could get a double motor mount and mount two vxl's in it. Thats only a good solution if you want water proof and have two systems laying around.
