    10collin21's Summit Build and Showcase

    OK guys so I have decided to make my own thread for my summit build. As of now my truck is primarily stock apart from my Tekin Rx8/1900kv motor setup. I have also water proofed it up to this point so that I can run in wet conditions, but have no plan of full submersion.

    Your truck looks good, loving the black rims. How is that tekin system treating you?
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    Love the system. Havent broken anything yet *crosses fingers & knocks on wood*. I also love the speed yet with the sensored setup it runs as smooth as stock. I think next up is a body and tires but thats a little ways away.

    Maybe you know this but you get more traction if you face the tires the other way.

    So update for you guys. Ive decided to try and start a rear steering project. I have a couple of ideas on how i am gonna do it (a magician never reveals his secrets). Just messing, but i am started to order some hardware to help visualize which idea is going to work. Just basic stuff like servos and becs and such. Gonna try using a hacked FS-GT3B and a 6 ch receiver. Wish me luck!

    From everything i read before i got mine the sj2000 had a few issues and the 1000 actually was the better. but for teh price you really cannot go wrong. I think one of the issues was it was not really waterproof. i would have liked that one especially now that im having issues getting a good solid mount on the summit so it isent all over the place.. its like watching a fishbowl as your driving over potholes..hehe

    I just remounted mine. Took it off the roof and put it on the hood. Much more solid and does not wobble like the roof

    Thanks for the advice! I mounted my friends go pro once on the roof and it was shaky. How or what do you use to mount yours?

    I used the mounting tape that came with it. Holds well took a tumble and snapped the mount off. But the base and remainder of the mount is still their. Think I'll make a shorter mount.

    The one i found has pretty short mount and plenty of options to mount so hopefully i can find something that works

    If yours did not come with 2 way tape go to your local auto parts store and get the 3m tape for body moldings.

    got a replacement mount under warranty. But did some searching on ebay and found a low profile mount. Looks to be more than a inch shorter than my current.. looks like your mounts are much shorter than mine. Im thinking shorter mount = less vibration

    We had snow here the other day but it was too much to even go out in. We got a total of 13-14 inches. I need to wait until some melts away this way I can get some driving in.
