    Yes. Everything will fit fine.
    The summit rear arms will extend your wheel base something like 10 or 19mm though.

    It does not extend the arms. The truck is just as wide. But it is slightly longer.
    It will be more stable, both on the ground and in the air.
    It will be easier to keep the front wheels on the ground for speed runs.
    The turning radius will be slightly increased.

    They will break if you start doing big air jumps...I used the Summit A-arms for a while but got tired of replacing them...I upgraded to RPM and haven't looked back since .

    I forget how long but it does make the truck longer by several mm.... It does make a big difference, & they are only on the rear arms. You can not get the extended Arms from RPM the last I know of...

    the extra angel puts more stress on the drive shafts...

    I do fine with the Summit Arms, haven't broke an arm in over a year. But it depend a little how hard you are going to drive...
