    Is there a difference between revo and summit RPM A arms.

    I want to use revo CVD's, can i use my summit rpm a arms and the revo P2 rockers?

    Yep. The summit and revo ones are the same.

    No, they are not.

    In the front, the arms are the same... in the rear, they are different. The Summit's rear arms are swept back 10mm.


    RPM does not make Summit arms... they make Revo arms that fit on the Summit and since the Revo comes stock with P2 rockers the combination works well together.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    RPM arms at the front reduce the amount of suspension travel compared to stock ones.
    Nobody is born with experience.

    Yep, the RPMs are more forward in the rear. They fit the Summit ok but the top arm rubs the drive shaft a little. I just switched to the Traxxas CVD's so no more rubbing. Its my sons truck so I try to put as many parts on it that I know will be easy for him to break if they were stock.

    Will the rpm arms work on the summit with the long travel rockers?

    I'm assuming they work with the summit push rods too?

    Yes they will.
    The only suspension differences between the revo and summit are the rear arms,rockers,and springs.
