    Revo gone Summit.

    Hi all, I have a Revo VXL thats been slowly converted into a Summit like rig.

    So from this


    To this now

    Wheels are temporary.

    I just did my camber adjustment since the Long Travel rockers were installed. I was running black springs in the front and pink in the rear and found to be way to soft and I would bottom out way to much (even when braking). I switched it to pink and blue but have yet to test it. What's a good setup for suspension that gives me decent suspension travel when turning and jumping but that doesnt bottom out when I hit the brakes?

    RPM Front and Rear Arms (80692,80602)
    Metal Geared Digital Servo (75oz/in at .11sec)

    Hot Racing Brake Discs (VXS21BR02)

    Why not? That's what this hobby is about, always modding, having fun and making an RC "yours".
