    What have you broke on your Summit - Repair kit.

    Hello.

    I want to get a kit to repair my Summit.

    So far i have broken the front bumper (RPM bumper ring installed, Suspension Arms and Axle Carrriers.

    What else should i get to my repair kit.

    I have no local hobby store, but my web shop ships it as letter, and it ships pretty fast (usually 1 day), but it would be nice to have some parts that is easy to break.

    My Summit is stock, just added lipos for better runtime.

    It would help to know how you are using the Summit. You broke an axle carrier on it? I've only broken one of them on my ERBE in over 3 years. We must be driving our vehicles differently.

    Are you driving in cold weather? That might have an inpact on the plastic. A bit more crisp.

    I am usually over prepared...
    multiple long axles
    multiple short axles
    full set of arms minus one corner
    ring and pinion
    2 sets of internal diff gears
    locker set
    2 diff cups
    receiver
    BEC
    shock internals
    double yellow springs
    center drive shafts
    bumper mounts

    Please take note that some of these are take-offs from upgrading.

    And I have two DeWALTS and 4 brushes coming.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Well I learned two things that day. A summit dominates the track. Maybe not in what place it comes in but when someone Is in your way you just run them over or bounce them off the track or being able to hold your ground cuz they can't get around you. Lol. It kept up with the other rc cars and handled fairly well.
    The other thing I learned is that a summit isn't made for racing on a track. I finally got all my parts today and ended up rebuilding my entire summit. Trany, diffs, shocks, all new bearing filler with marine grease, Dbl orange springs, and a couple Servos and I just finished. Only took 7 hours. But it was all worth it for a bit of fun.

    I recommend having a pair of servos - steering 2075 and micro 2065 and replacement gears 2072 ready to install. If they go out they'll do it without warning.

    Ive broke Countless stock servos, upgraded to hitec.
    4 motors, one esc, upgraded to hpi brushless.
    At least 10 diff gears, at least 10 axels, 3 A arms, one body post, 2 bumper mounts, 2 micro servos, one axel carrier, 3 center steering arms,
    Wore through one set of battery doors, 2 center axels, and im sure theres more. Ive had my truck since 2010 and we run a few times a week nearly every week. Im not incredibly hard on my truck but it gets used a lot and some pretty extreme terrain and weather.
    Things to have at the ready is servo and diff rebuild kits as well as axels. I carry a lot of stuff when out on the trail, i could build a second truck with my spare..
