    That is about all you really need... except maybe for some lower gearing due to the larger tires.
    A good portion of Summit owners end up with MERV arms and rockers.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Bumpers. Then you'll have a Summit.
    And there he goes with the carbon...

    The summit uses a loop and mounts to the body mount....the revo uses the wing bracket to mount the bumper solid...the front is the same bracket - just unbolt and bolt new one on.

    On the summit, the rear arms are different and have a 10mm sweep back to assist with throttle flips as it sits higher up and is more top heavy.

    I think everything else is fine....OH, 60 weight oil is stock with the long travel rockers installed on the summit
