    Got a summit!

    Hey everyone. Just bought a summit from a member on here. Got it for 215 shipped to my door. It came with rpm axle carriers, cvds, rpm front arms, 4 gens ace 1800 lipo, 3 traxxas batteries, and 1 venom 1600. All the suspension arms were on wrong so I fixed that. Filled the shocks with 70wt oil. Bad thing is, I found the diffs are clicking. So time for some new ones that I will shim. Here is a photo of it.

    Yep it is a vxl. Another bad thing is, the speed control is acting up. Cogging extremely bad. There goes my good deal

    Yep tried all that. I even took the servo out thinking it may cause a glitch. I did some research and it seems the vxl3m was bad for these problems.
    Oh and I was running lipo, but I tried the nimh and same results.

    Sure will. I have to buy something soon, and I've used castle products and they are top notch.

    Might ask Jimmie he suggested it in the other thread he knows his stuff so he might be able to tell you something with the mounting of it.
