    I'd put the max steering stop in and move to the inside holes of the servo horns. Then centre your steering (controller on). There is a thread on this somewhere. If you have two TQi's then getting a matching receiver may not be a bad idea. I think you got a good deal - need to buy some matching mah batteries - there are some good 7600mah 2S batts out there that fit snuggly. Cant help with that transmitter sorry.

    Nothing to setting end points, any time you make a change to the ESC setting you need to recalibrate.

    Thanks that should help forsure. A few things I want to do is get a MM2 and a shroud, just a little less to worry about.

    Got a question, when I tried to switch my TQi over to 70/30 and re linked it nothing would happen so I went and put it back to 50/50 and then it would turn on steering would work but throttle wouldn't work then the fan on the ESC turned off and then throttle worked. Is that normal and will the fan turn on once it gets hotter? Also why wont 70/30 work?

    the esc fan only comes on at starting or when the esc gets hot, 50/50 is mostly for nitro, I would recalibrate at 70/30.

    Another question, What would I need to do to get rid of the wing if I want a normal truck body? Would I need to buy a summit bumper mount?

    No, you can keep the wing if you wanted. You'll have to trim the body accordingly....here is my Summit build running the eRevo body mounts with a Ford F250 body.

    Yea but once I remove the wing mount it still has the curved up thing that the wing mount mounts to will a truck body fit over that?

    EDIT: Oh, your talking about removing that part, what about the bumper then?

    I am running RPM bumpers front and rear on my Summit...I just used a rear RPM bumper mount to hold the bumper in place. It fits in place of the wing mount.

    Would I be able to mount the summit stock bumpers with the revo mounts? Or would I need summit mounts for those? I kinda want those bumpers they look cool.

    I was looking at the summit light bar because I'm thinking about throwing a summit body on my revo and was wondering does it just hook into the same wiring for the bumper lights of the summit?

    Okay so heres my list of my first changes to the truck.
    -Red Summit body (New graphics)
    -Summit light bar
    -Summit bumpers with lights
    -Summit body posts
    -Hot Racing silver Rockers front and rear

    Thoughts?

    Most of my changes will be for looks since its got pretty much all the upgrades.
    My plans for my next upgrades
    -Red hubs
    -Red Shock bodies
    -Hot racing Silver shock upgrade kit
    -Red Pushrods
    -Castle motor fan
    -Red antenna tube and crimp nut
    -80 Wt shock oil
    -Integy Spring Kit

    Hopefully I can order the first set early next week and maybe the second set around the end of next week or a week after.

    Another thing I wanna get eventually is Some Pro-Line mashers on Axial 8-spoke Black Chrome wheels. Also a Dusty motors shroud and MM2 ESC.

    Suggestions are welcome.
