    Double orange springs in

    Installed the double orange springs in the rear of the Summit last night my time. Makes a great difference, especially as i wound the adjustment up leaving about 3-4 rings of thread showing, doesn't really squat at all now and has a mean raked stance , glad i didn't go a stiffer rated spring!. Rebound is noticeably faster too. Now to install the top LED light bar!.

    Okay, thanks. It must be the lighting or my computer because in the pic it looks more OD Green or a little darker.

    The Summit comes stock with double orange springs in the front so all you need to order is one (1) pair. The Traxxas part number is TRA5437.

    I think the Summit should come with an assortment of springs of different stiffnessessess. For bashing, I think double orange all around is a great choice. I spun my threaded rings down to where the chassis can bottom out while almost bottoming out the suspension. For crawling though, that setup is way too stiff with not enough suspension travel.

    There really are lots of different ways to tune a summit to it's different potentials

    if it's not tightened up, it will dive and squat real hard. Jumps will bottom out more to.

    too bad the swing arms dont fit with the 2 speed tranny...
