    My Yellow Summit

    I picked up this summit almost 2 weeks ago for $200. it came with the 27Mhz radio and the low gear doesn't work most of the time, other than that, it functions perfectly.
    I did purchase a TQi 4 Channel radio for it, can't stand the pull out antennas of the AM radios.

    I also installed the Progressive 2 Rockers, TRX Red pushrods and toelinks, Integy Springs





    Oh, also installed the top lights as well,


    Here are a couple of pics with the body lowered and the wheels stripped of the chrome.





    I plan on possibly installing a brushless setup in the truck and will be ordering a pair of 8A batteries for her.

    I lowered it enough so that it covers most of the battery tray doors, almost an inch I believe.
    you do have to use different bumper supports to get the bumpers to line up with the lowered body.
    The body posts have to be cut as well since they hit the rockers.

    I'll post some pics later this afternoon showing which bumper supports I used.

    use "Easy-off oven cleaner" make sure its the yellow can (not blue) it takes way to long. just remove the beads off the rims and make sure rims are clean, spary some of that cleaner on them and what several hours. I applied some more spray every couple of hours.
    here are my results.
