    love my summit!!

    well today i finally put my summit through some tough stuff, behind my house there is some heavy woods.
    so i charged all the batterys for the summit and fpv system and set out on a adventure. about a hour into
    the run i managed to get the truck tangled up in some sticker vines, while working the truck back and forth i heard something snap but thought it was a twig cause i had been crawling over a few. when i lost rear wheel drive i knew i broke a shaft. so i locked both diffs and was able to crawl back to the shed which was
    about 3/4 of a mile away. i drilled 2 new holes in the broken shaft and was back to bashing. this thing is
    awsome. cant wait to get a dewalt motor and some extra shafts.

    Loosen the slipper a little.
    I was snapping shafts all the time until I found the slipper sweet spot.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Can you share what the slipper sweet spot is? *Gives you a puppy dog face*

    I just kept loosening it a tiny itsy bitsy bit at a time until I stopped snapping shafts. Only took two shafts that look like swiss cheese on the end!
    I am sure the exact spot is going to be different for everyone... manufacturing variances, different driving styles, different wear, ect.

    I can still pull wheelies after rolling backward if wanted... and my RC is 15lbs with all the stuff I have on it.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Like Jimmie says sweet spot is different for everyone but if it's too loose you'll hear high pitch squeal on hard acceleration. For me a little bit of squeal aka a little slippage is ideal if I punch it. Don't squeal too much because you're burning pads.
