    Merv to summit.

    I have a very hopped up merv I want to convert To a summit.

    I know I need:
    Wheels
    Exo cage
    Body
    Body posts /mounts

    What else do I really NEED to convert.
    I know I need the driveshafts... but that's pricy for all 4 ends... and doesn't need to be upgraded...

    I will be doing the springs.. so what springs should I get...?

    Part numbers would be great. But looking to buy the parts Sunday. So help me out.

    Merv shafts are actually better. Leave them on there.
    The Summit uses a LT rocker. #7156
    Summit bumpers #7235, loose the MERV wing.
    Pushrods and toelinks are the same
    aside from those and your list you should be good to go.

    take a look at the exploded views for the transmissions. not sure if the summit has different internals or not.
    I flipped the gears on my 1/16 Summit so it was considerably slower but gobs of torque.

    Transmissions on all 1/16ths are the exact same.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
